INTRO: C

                               Em
She looks at the clock, it's a quarter past nine
Am                      F            G
She hears his car as he pulls in the drive
C                           Em
Dinner's still waiting from hours before
    D7                               G
She knows he's been drinking when he walks through the door
   Dm7                      G
In anger he strikes out and she starts to cry
         Dm7                         G
How much more can she take, how much more can she lie


CHORUS:
        C             F       G
And she fell down the stairs again
    Am        Em             F              G
But it hasn't happened since she don't know when
F                         G
Was it in spring when she packed up the kids
   Dm7                      G
Or maybe in winter with his job on the skids
        Am          Em          F 
Oh, but just like before she'll have to pretend
         Dm7           G       C
That she fell down the stairs again


                      Em
A short time ago, she started a job
        Am                      F           G
Serving chicken fried steak and corn on the cob
    C                        Em
She started out shy, but she ended up sure
       D7                 G
That a ticket to anywhere could be the cure
    Dm7                    G
But he couldn't handle her change for the better
Dm7                         G
She tried to leave him, but he wouldn't let her


BRIDGE:
F                   G
He says he's sorry, he didn't mean it
   C               Em      Am    C
He swears it won't happen again
    F                      G
But she's so confused, she wants to believe it
    Dm7                          G
She just wants this nightmare to end


CHORUS:
        C             F       G
And she fell down the stairs again
    Am        Em             F              G
But it hasn't happened since she don't know when
F                         G
Was it in spring when she packed up the kids
   Dm7                      G
Or maybe in winter with his job on the skids
        Am          Em          F 
Oh, but just like before she'll have to pretend
         Dm7           G       C
That she fell down the stairs again
Am          Em          F 
Just like before she'll have to pretend
         Dm7           G       C
That she fell down the stairs again
