Jackie Greene
{Verse 1}
 
F           C             G       Am
The game must be loaded, cause I never win
       F           C            G  G
These things never did treat me good
 F             C                   G       Am
Keep the fire warm, dear and I’ll see you again
 F               C          G  G
Lord knows that someday I should
 
           F            C              G           Am
But it’s a strange old feeling, these passing lane blues
        F               C           G  G
There's nothing I ain’t never felt before
     F              C                  G            Am
You nailed down my conscience and you forced me to choose
    F          C                 G  G  G  G
My soul I let slip through your door
 
{Chorus}
    Am       F          G       Am
And I’ll be doing just fine, oh fine
    F          C            G  G
No matter how hard I don’t try
  Am         F             E         Am
And if it’s raining on the fourth of July
    F             F        G  G  G  G
I believe I’ll be gettin’ by
 
{Verse 2}
     F                  C            G         Am
You know the cheaper the ride, the cheaper the thrill
     F                 C                  G  G
You can’t trust the shadows through the curtains
         F              C                 G       Am
Well if I took you for granted, just send me the bill
       F                C            G  G
'Cause one thing that I know is for certain
 
    F        C            G         Am
Now all I’ve got is this time on my hands
    F        G            G  G
And time, oh time it’s a breakin’
     F         C         G              Am
Just one lost memory and the price you demand
        F             C            G  G  G  G
I loved you but I could have been mistaken
 
{Chorus}
    Am       F          G       Am
And I’ll be doing just fine, oh fine
    F          C            G  G
No matter how hard I don’t try
  Am         F             E         Am
And if it’s raining on the fourth of July
    F             F        G  G
I believe I’ll be gettin’ by
 
{Verse 3}
F              C          G               Am
Time makes you older (or that’s what they say)
   F           C            G G
I come to find out it ain’t so
    F              C           G       A
The time makes you colder and farther away
    F       F           C     G  G  G  G
And farther and farther you go...
 
{Chorus}
    Am       F          G       Am
And I’ll be doing just fine, oh fine
    F          C            G  G
No matter how hard I don’t try
  Am         F             E         Am
And if it’s raining on the fourth of July
    F             F        G  G
I believe I’ll be gettin’ by
