Intro

Strum between (F) and (C5/D) - a 'down down up down' ryhthm, which continues into the 
verse. I like to start on the bottom strings then throw in a few top strings as we get 
into the intro..


VERSE 1


(Strumming between F and C5/D)
I've got my head down in my books
                     (G)
I've been reading all weekend,
                       (Back to G and C5/D)
But I don't learn anything

Because my mind is full of emptiness,
         (G)                        (Back to F and C5/D)
I've less energy than a stick of celery.

             (Dm)   (F)         (F)
And then you call me up, down in Jericho,
(C7)             (Dm)     (F)      (F)
   To see if I'll go for a drink or two


CHORUS 1


(C7)    (Dm)       (F)
   But I don't want you to see,
(F)             (C7)             (Dm)
 What the lonely nights are doing to me,
     (F)             (F)    (C7)
Bit my fingers to the bone,
     (Dm)          (F)
And I don't want to hear you say,
(F)         (C7)
You let what happened anyway
(Dm)       (F)
  'Cos you don't know anything


BRIDGE / FREAK OUT BIT

It's a bit weird to work out. I think i strumming between (D) and (Dm) for a few bars. 
Then hold the (D) for a bar or two longer, then (F), then back to strumming between (F) 
and (C5/D)


VERSE 2

                                          (G)
I was a stronger man than you when I loved Delilah,
                     (Back to G and C5/D)
With her pants on fire

But then she cut my hair and left me here,
          (G)                         (Back to F and C5/D)
With more inertia than a limpet on the shore
        (Dm)          (F)             (F)
When the tide falls so low I feel like letting go,
(C7)             (Dm)(F)       (F)
  Though I should go to my family


CHORUS 2


(C7)    (Dm)       (F)
   But I don't want you to see,
(F)             (C7)             (Dm)
 What the lonely nights are doing to me,
     (F)             (F)    (C7)
Bit my fingers to the bone,
     (Dm)          (F)
And I don't want to hear you say,
(F)         (C7)
You let what happened anyway
(Dm)       (F)              (F)    (C7)
  'Cos you don't know anything


    (Dm)          (F)
And I don't want to hear you say,
(F)         (C7)
You let what happened anyway
(Dm)       (F)              (F)   (Let ring)
  'Cos you don't know anything
