Nobody’s wife    (video)    (clip)    (midi)

 

    Am - F - Dm - C - G (2x)

 

          Am               F                                     Dm

1. I'm sorry for the times that I made you scream,

                C                G                Am

    for the times that I killed your dreams,

                F                                   Dm                     C   - G

    for the times that I made your whole world rumble,

Am           F                               Dm

    for the times that I made you cry,

               C                 G          Am

    for the times that I told you lies,

                F                                     Bb

    for the times that I watched and let you stumble.

 

            Am   - F               Dm   - C

It's too bad,      but that's me,

            G     Am                   F                 Dm  - C

what goes around comes around, you'll see

       G     Dm G         C             F

that I can carry the burden of pain,

                            Dm         - G              C                F

cause it ain't the first time        that a man goes insane.

                              Dm    - G              C                 F

When I spread my wings       to embrace him for life

                         Dm               G           Am           F

sucking out his love, ah, I'll never be nobody's wife.

2. I'm sorry for the times that I didn't come home,

                 C                  G    Am

    left you lying in that bed alone,

                      F                                       Dm                       C   - G

    was flying high in the sky, when you needed my shoulder.

Am                      F                                   Dm

    You're like a stone hanging round my neck, see,

               C                      G            Am

    cut it loose before it breaks my back, see,

                     F                             Dm             C     - G

    I've gotta say what I feel before I grow older.

 

 

 

 

 

 

          Am              F                                  Dm

    I'm sorry, but I ain't gonna change my ways,

                            C                  G        Am

    you know I've tried but I'm still the same,

             F             Bb

    I've got to do it my own way.

 

            Am   - F               Dm   - C

It's too bad,      but that's me,

            G     Am                   F                 Dm  - C

what goes around comes around, you'll see

       G     Dm G         C             F

that I can carry the burden of pain,

                            Dm         - G              C                F

cause it ain't the first time        that a man goes insane.

                              Dm    - G              C                 F

When I spread my wings       to embrace him for life

                         Dm               G           Am           F

sucking out his love, ah, I'll never be nobody's wife.
