Verse 1

Em                          C                       A
April.  Back in New York.  The 31st floor. 

   D                                             Em  
It seems somehow everything's changed.

                            C                               A 
The kitchen's too small.  Plates on the wall.

       D                              
The sound of machinery. 

Em                              G 
May.  Where have you been?

                       A         
Who were you running with?

                C                                       Em   
Wasn't he someone you used to call home.
  
                    G 
Where is the ring?  

                    A                                     C
Where is the boy who went travelling alone

Chorus

G     D2                              C
She      is much better without me

                                    G         
She walks through the gates of the country

D2                      C 
     Hands at her side

         G                                      D2   
And I smile as I watch her walk by

C
Somehow I see there are ships in her eyes

G     D2                     C
She       is better off now


Verse 2

June.  The curtain is shut.
The patterns are cut.
The maid who will wake you at dawn.
Pulls out a chair.  Pulls down your hair.
It's just like you wanted

July.  What's going on
What are you runnin' from
Why are you sleeping alone on the floor.
Some people change.  
Others hang on till they can't anymore

Chorus.

Solo

G     D2                              C
She      is much better without me

                                    G                    
She walks through the gates of the country

D2                      C 
     Hands in the air

         G                                      D2
And I smile as I watch her walk by

C                          
Somehow I see there are ships in her eyes.

G     D2                        C    
She      is much better now

I can see if I should bother doing anymore.
