Verse 1:
G                      C         G
When I think of those East End lights 
C
Muggy nights
G			    F                 C	
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
F         		      G
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
F			  G		   C
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
	  Cm
And it's one more beer 
		      A7	
And I don't hear you anymore
       C
We've all gone crazy lately
    C#dim				  G
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
            D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Chorus:
C			G	     Am		G
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
C		      G           Am
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
     G      C                        Bm7
You nearly had me roped and tied
C		C#dim
Altar-bound, hypnotized
	G
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
	  C#dim
You're a butterfly 
     C		      
And butterflies are free to fly
C#dim      G        Bm7  C
Fly away, high away bye bye
C       Bm7             Am    G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Intro: (do twice)


Verse 2:
G			C      G
I never realized the passing hours
C
Of evening showers
   G		      F		      C
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
     F			        G	
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene

F		  G		          C
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
Cm
It's four o'clock in the morning
	  A7
Damn it listen to me good
C
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
C#dim  [x45650]				       G
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
	  D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah

Back To Chorus …………………………………………

Bridge:
Am					    G
And I would have walked head on into the deep end the river
Em7
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
	     C
Paying your H.P. demands forever
Am				       G
They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Em7				  C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em7				  C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em7
Someone saved my life tonight
C					      C#dim	  Bm7  C	
So save your strength and run the field you play alone
