E
Cheap perfume and painted faces,
 
Fallen angels fill the places 
        A                           E
Where I go when my troubles pull me down.

All the lies I know they'll tell me, 

And the time that they will sell me,
      F#                               B7    
For a while I'll be the biggest man in town.
        E
Back at home in bed she's crying,  

For her love for me is dying,
           A                                 E 
But she'll pray I make it safely through the night.
         B7
When the mornin' sun starts showing, 
       A
To her bedside I'll be going,
           E               B7               E
And she'll hold me while I face the morning light. 



And I'll make promises,

Promises to change. 
              Ab
I'll make her promises, swear I'll rearrange. 
               A
And I'll start giving all the love she needs, 
   B7                 A  B7
If only she will stay.



      E
Once again she'll reassure me,

And I believe her love will cure me,
         A                            E
And I'll fall asleep with tears on my face.

Lord I know she's just a woman,

And her love can't last forever,
        F#                                     B7
And someday soon I know she'll leave without a trace.


           E
For broken promises  

Will tear her dreams apart,
           Ab 
Just token promises will someday break her heart.
            A
And for the last time she'll hold me when I cry
              B7
And while I'm sleeping,
       A       B7   
She'll quietly say:
    C  D  E
Goodbye.
