| Em | Em D/F# | G  | G Am C/B |
| C  | C  | D  | B7 |
 
[Verse 1]
Em             D/F#        G
   It can't be said I'm an early bird
           Am       C/B   C
It's ten o'clock before I say a word
                  D
Baby, I can never tell
                    B7
How do you sleep so well?
 
                       Em
You keep telling me to live right
         D/F#           G
To go to bed before the daylight
             Am      C/B     C
But then you wake up for the sunrise
                            G
You know you don't gotta pretend
              D/F#
Baby, now and then
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
                     Em
Don't you just wanna wake up, dark as a lake?
    D/F#        G
Smelling like a bonfire, lost in a haze?
   Am           C/B C
If you're drunk on life, babe, I think it's great
                  D
But while in this world
 
[Chorus]
             B7              Em
I think I'll take my whiskey neat
                D/F#   G
My coffee black and my bed at three
           Am    C/B C
You're too sweet for me
                     G
You're too sweet for me
 
  B7              Em
I take my whiskey neat
                D/F#   G
My coffee black and my bed at three
           Am    C/B C
You're too sweet for me
                     D  B7
You're too sweet for meeee
 
[Break]
         Em
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
    D/F#    G
Ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-ooh
    Am  C/B C
Ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-ooh
            G          D/F#
Ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-ooh
 
[Verse 2]
      Em
I aim low
                   D/F#             G
I aim true and the ground's where I go
                      Am   C/B      C
I work late where I'm free from the phone
 
And the job gets done
        D             B7
But you worry some, I know
 
                         Em
But who wants to live forever, babe?
               D/F#             G
You treat your mouth as if it's Heaven's gate
            Am       C/B        C
The rest of you like you're the TSA
                   G                        D/F#
I wish I could go along, babe, don't get me wrong
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
                              Em
You know you're bright as the morning, as soft as the rain
    D/F#    G
Pretty as a vine, as sweet as a grape
           Am  C/B  C
If you can sit in a barrel, maybe I'll wait
           D
Until that day
 
[Chorus]
           B7              Em
I'd rather take my whiskey neat
          D/F#         G
My coffee black and my bed at three
           Am    C/B C
You're too sweet for me
                     G
You're too sweet for me
 
  B7              Em
I take my whiskey neat
          D/F#         G
My coffee black and my bed at three
           Am    C/B C
You're too sweet for me
                     D  B7
You're too sweet for meeee
 
[Bridge]

Whoa-oh, ooh-oh-oh,

Whoa-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh
     Am C/B C
