 Am                G            C

1.   I know a man with nothing in his hands,

     Am                G          C

    nothing but a rolling stone.

Am                     G                    C

   He told me about when his house burnt down,

         Am            G          C

    he lost everything he owned.

Am               G         C

    He lay asleep for six whole weeks,

                      Am                   G               C

    they were gonna ask his mother to choose.

                    Am                  G              C

    When he woke up with nothing he said, I'll tell you something,

                                Am                          G             C

    when you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose.

 

                              F                              C

    Now I've got a hole in my pocket, a hole in my shirt,

            G                               C

    a whole lot of trouble, he said,

                           F                    C

    but now the money is gone, life carries on,

               G                                    C

    and I miss it like a hole in the head.

2.     I know a woman with kids around her ankles,

              Am    G        C

    and a baby on her lap,

                    Am                G            C

    she said, one day her husband went to get a paper,

                  Am                   G                C

    and the mother fucker never came back.

      Am              G            C

    Mortgage to pay and four kids to raise,

      Am              G                   C

    keeping the wolf from the door,

                          Am     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    she said, the wolf's just a puppy and the door's double locked,

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    so why you gotta worry me for.

 

                                F                            C

    Now he left a in hole in my heart, a hole in a promise,

         G                                 C

    a hole on the side of my bed.

             F                                    C

    Oh, now that he's gone, well, life carries on,

               G                                         C

    and I miss him like a hole in the  head.

 

   F                                               C                                 G

+    Well, sometimes you can't change and you can't choose,

F                                                  C                          G

    and sometimes it seems you gain less than you lose.

 

                              Dm                F                                   C               G

+  Well, we've got holes in our hearts, yeah, we've got holes in our lives

                             Dm                      F                           C

    well, we've got holes, we've got holes but we carry on. (2x)

 

                             Dm                F                                   C               G

+  Say, we've got holes in our hearts, yeah, we've got holes in our lives,

                             Dm                      F                            C

    well, we've got holes, we've got holes, but we carry on.  (4x)
