Pianists love to use these odd keys. As a guitar player you may find it much easier to transpose this one either down one half

step to G or up one half step to A. Just my $.02

Intro

Ab Eb

A man and a woman

Bb Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4 Bb

Come together as strangers.

Ab

When they part

Eb Bb Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4 Bb

They're usually strangers still.

Ab Eb

It's like a practical joke

Bb Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4 Bb

Played on us by our Maker.

Ab

Empty bottles,

Eb Bb Bbsus4 Bb Bbsus4 Bb

That can't be filled.

Cm Dm

Baby, who's to say

Eb F

It coulda been different now that it's done.

Cm

(Baby, who's to say....)

Dm

Baby, who's to say

Eb F

That it shoulda been anyway.

Cm Dm

Baby, who's to say

Eb F

That it even matters in the long run.

Cm

(Baby, who's to say.)

Dm

Give it just a minute.

Eb F

And it'll blow away.

It'll blow away.

Gm F

Gm Eb F

You fancy me to be

The master of your feelings.

You barely bruise me

With your looks to kill.

Though I admit

We were sometimes brutal in our dealings,

I never held you against your will.

Chorus

Jam on verse chords

Gm F

Gm Eb F

Your case against me is so

Very clearly stated

I plead no contest,

I turn and shrug.

I've come to figure all importance

overestimated.

You must mean water when you beg for blood.
