How To Play

Capo: 1st fret

G C 2x
 
G                     C        G       C
When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights
G                     F               C
Curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
F                           G
Prima Donna Lord you really should have been there
F                       G              C
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
         Cm                                 C  A7
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore
      C              A7
We've all gone crazy lately
   C                 A7                C        G
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
        D
ooooooooo
 
    C                G             Am    C    Am C
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
    C               G           Am         C
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
G          C                G
You nearly had me roped and tied
C                 A7
Altar bound, hypnotized
      G                 C
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
         A7
You're a butterfly
    C               A7
And butterflies are free to fly
C         G          A7  C
Fly away, high away, bye bye
C       G           Am  G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
 
G C  2x
 
G                  C       G        C
Never realised the passing hours of evening showers
G                  F             C
Slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
    F                         G
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
F               G               C
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating Queen
     Cm                  C
It's four o'clock in the morning
         A7
Damn it, listen to me good
    C               A7
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
C                    A7             C      G
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
         D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
 
    C                G             Am    C    Am C
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
    C               G           Am         C
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
G          C                G
You nearly had me roped and tied
C                 A7
Altar bound, hypnotized
      G                 C
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
         A7
You're a butterfly
    C               A7
And butterflies are free to fly
C         G          A7  C
Fly away, high away, bye bye
C       G           Am  G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
 
G C  2x
 
Am               C                       G               C
And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
A7
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
A7          C
Paying your H.P. demands forever
Am            C              Em               G
Coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
A7               C             Em               C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
A7               C             Em               C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
A7               C
Someone saved my life tonight
   Em                     C                 A7    C
So save your strength and run the field you play alone
 
    C                G             Am    C    Am C
And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
    C               G           Am         C
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
G          C                G
You nearly had me roped and tied
C                 A7
Altar bound, hypnotized
      G                 C
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
         A7
You're a butterfly
    C               A7
And butterflies are free to fly
C         G          A7  C
Fly away, high away, bye bye
