Give myself a party    (video)

 

    G - C - D7 - G

 

            G                C                 D7                        G

1. I've got a lot of memories to last the rest of my life,

       Em                            Am         D7                      G

    so if you don't want to love me, baby, that'll be alright.

           G                         C        - D7                         G

    I'm gonna take all the loving        that I have for you,

          Em                       Am             D7                                  G

    I'm gonna take all the loneliness, sit right down with the blues.

 

                                        C                                       G

I'm gonna give myself a party, and serve old memories,

                      Em    - A7                                    D     - D7

give myself a party,       think of how it used to be.

                               C                                      G

Remember all the happiness that we once knew,

                                       Em    - D7                             G

I’m gonna give myself a party,        just me and the blues,

          C                  G

(just me and the blues).

 

+  G - C - D7 - G

 

        G                       C               D7                 G

2. A few of your love letters, a photograph or two,

       Em                      Am                      D7                     G

    a gift you gave on my birthday with words of “I love you”.

                  G                       C                                    D7                    G

    There's lots of things to think about when you're happy, feeling blue,

               Em                       Am             D7                                  G

    so I'm gonna take all the loneliness, sit right down with the blues.

 

+  CHORUS
