[Verse]
C                           Am 
..It was a gracious old sunshine
            G
But it was wasted on me
        F 
I was plastered
                           C 
And counting the cop cars out
           G      
Right in front of me
C                            Am
..I was a troublesome young kid
         G
I was a big piece of ****
          F
But I’m hoping that
                   
Them days in the hospice
C            G 
Atoned for some of it
[Refrain]
Dm                         C  
..If the whole thing was fair
            Em                        F 
It would be me that was fighting for air
                     C 
But it’s you in the bed
                Em                        F   
And it’s so routine that it just threw me I guess
                     C 
And in the cosmic ballet
               Em                      F 
You can’t just do what you ****** up again
                                   C 
And the world is not done with me yet

[Verse]
                    Am
Was in a dulcimer mood
            G       
Around the 4th day of June
    F 
I accounted
                                   C  
For the miles of attention that I got
            G         C 
But never want nor choose
                       Am  
And on the day when I left
         G                      F    
When I said I’d be back, I am sorry
                  
And your face when you saw me
    C         G          Dm     
It was fate worse than death

[Refrain]
                       C
I just wish that I’d said
           Em                       F  
Something more than I’d be back in 10
                         C 
And if I went there in time
            Em                           F 
I’d take a second to go and kiss you goodbye
                     C 
So I’ll stay by the bed
             Em                       F  
And be some respite for you till the end
                               G   
And the world is not done with me yet

[Bridge]
Dm         C         Am        G   
Rise and rise, you great old thing
F G  
Mmm
Dm        C         F    G       
Rise and rise and shine over me
Dm  C                     Em                F 
...All that I wanted was something to save me
           C                   Em            F  
And the carnival’s over, the ashtrays are empty
      C                    Em              F 
It’s hardly a place I can look to for safety

[Verse]
C                    Am
..Was a high holy weekend
              G                         F 
The ones you get **** for free at the counter
                    
And I’m crying alone now
       C          G           C 
‘Cause I didn’t want them to see
                         Am
I fell asleep in the bathtub
           G                        F  
But I woke up in the street, I’m a bastion
                               C
Of the unwanted attention that I
          Em       Dm 
Couldn’t wait to leave

[Refrain]
                        C
If the whole thing was fair
            Em                        F  
It would be me that was fighting for air
                     C
It made sense in my head
                   Em                       F 
But I’m still the asshole down here nonetheless
                    C
In the comedown affray
         Em                    F  
Came to fix what I ****** up today
                                  
‘Cause the world is not done with me
