Intro: Bbmaj Bb7 | Ebmaj D7 | Gm7 C7 | F7sus4 D#add9

 Bbmaj     Bb7   Ebmaj       D7
I waited ’til I saw the sun,
Gm7           C7      F7sus4    Bb F7sus4
I don’t know why I didn’t come.
Bbmaj       Bb7     Ebmaj       D7
I left you by the house of fun,
Gm7           C7      F7sus4 Bb Bb7
I don’t know why I didn’t come,
 Gm7          C7      F7sus4 Bb
I don’t know why I didn’t come.

Bbmaj   Bb7       Ebmaj     D7
When I saw the break of day
Gm7           C7      F7sus4    Bb F7sus4
I wished that I could fly away,
Bbmaj        Bb7      Ebmaj      D7
Instead of kneeling in the sand,
Gm7        C7      F7sus4 Bb
Catching teardrops in my hand.

      Gm7      C7/6        F     F7
   My heart is drenched in wine.
       Gm7       C7/6  F7
   But you’ll be on my mind
   F7/Eb Bb/D F6/C
   Forever.

Bbmaj Bb7      Ebmaj       D7
Out across the endless sea
Gm7     C7     F7sus4  Bb F7sus4
I will die in ecstasy.
Bbmaj     Bb7    Ebmaj      D7
But I’ll be a bag of bones,
Gm7      C7      F7sus4      Bb
Driving down the road alone.

 Gm7           C7/6        F     F7
   My heart is drenched in wine.
       Gm7       C7/6  F7
   But you’ll be on my mind
   F7/Eb Bb/D F6/C
   Forever.

Bbmaj      Bb7    Ebmaj        D7
Something has to make you run,
Gm7           C7      F7sus4    Bb F7sus4
I don’t know why I didn’t come.
 Bbmaj      Bb7   Ebmaj    D7
I feel as empty as a drum,
Gm7           C7      F7sus4 Bb Bb7
I don’t know why I didn’t come,
 Gm7          C7         F7sus4 Bb Bb/F
I don’t know why I didn’t come,
 Gm7          C7      F7sus4    Bb
I don’t know why I didn’t come.
