[Verse]
 
Dm     F/C       Gm       F  Dm     F/C    Dm
Waking up as the sun goes down body all in pain
Dm               F/C         Gm            F  Dm         F/C    Dm
Straight out the door to the worst part of town shooting up in vain
Dm            F/C   Gm     F  Dm            F/C Dm
Slips all his money to the man here we go again, here we go again
Dm          F/C          Gm          F   Dm        F/C   Dm
Got bags of mercy in the palm of his hand shooting up in vain
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          Dm            F/C          G/B  C
And so he heads for the closest roof top
             Dm            C         G
And now he's free with the skyline behind
                Dm             F/C       G/B  C
But it won't be long until his high will drop
             Dm              C      G
And then you know what he'll try to find
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Dm F/C Gm F
 
       Dm    F/C Dm
Such a shame
 
 
Dm       F/C          Gm     F    Dm     F/C    Dm
Now he's back on that hunt for more body all in pain
Dm         F/C               Gm        F  Dm        F/C   Dm
Wanting to get back to where he was before shooting up in vain
Dm        F/C                Gm      F   Dm           F/C  Dm
So now he goes and sells his wedding ring here we go again, here we go again
Dm           F/C          Gm   F   Dm         F/C   Dm
But now he's sold exactly everything shooting up in vain
 
 
[Chorus 2]
 
          Dm            F/C          G/B  C
And so he heads for the closest roof top
             Dm            C         G
And now he's free with the skyline behind
                Dm             F/C       G/B  C
But it won't be long until his high will drop
             Dm              C      G
And then you know what he'll try to find
               Dm   F/C G/B  C
Shooting up in vain
       Dm  C G Dm F/C G/B  C
Such a shame
       Dm  C G
Such a shame
 
 
[Verse 3]
 
Dm     F/C         Gm       F Dm    F/C    Dm
Down to bed as the sun goes up body all in pain
Dm      F/C         Gm       F   Dm        F/C    Dm
Now the swears he's going to stop shooting up in vain
 
 
[Chorus 2 3]
 
Dm           F/C            G/B C
He's doctor Jekyll and he's mr Hyde
Dm          C              G
He's got to listen to that voice deep inside
      Dm                  F/C            G/B  C
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      Dm                  C              G
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
               Dm   F/C G/B  C
Shooting up in vain
       Dm  C G Dm F/C G/B  C
Such a shame
       Dm  C G
Such a shame
      Dm                  F/C
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      G/B                 C
Go to stop shooting up in vain
      Dm                  C              G
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      Dm                  F/C
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      G/B                 C
Go to stop shooting up in vain
      Dm                  C              G
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      Dm                  F/C
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
      G/B                 C
Go to stop shooting up in vain
      Dm                  C              G
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
