INTRO: A7 C G A7

D G D

Just because I drink more than I used to

A7 D D7

Doesn't mean that you're the one to blame

G D

Just because I come home a little later every night

E7 A7-C-G-A7

Doesn't mean that I'm living in shame

D G D

Lord it's not you, it's me that should be sorry

A7 D D7

I've neglected you more than I should

G D

You say we can work it out together

E7 A7-C-G-A7

It would be so easy if we could

G D

But how can I explain the way I'm feelin'

A7 D D7

I've always kept my feelings locked inside

G D

It's easier to tell them to a stranger

E7 A7-C-G-A7

And drinking seems to soothe my wounded mind

D G D

Maybe someday I'll be the way you want me

A7 D D7

It seems I've let this bottle take command

G D

You say you don't think it holds the answer

A7 A7 C G D

Oh but sometimes it helps me be a man
