[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]
         C                F
He never wrote a song for Linda
            Am                     D
He wrote as though he lived alone
            G           C                    B
He wrote of dreams that end and of sad brave men
          Em                      E
Inventing worlds he never known

[Chorus]
       Am            Gm       F
But he never wrote a song for Linda
    Em      Dm    C    F          D    E
And she was right there all along
          Am            Gm
Loved him back to life
         F         Em
When his luck ran low
       F             G          C       Fm    F  C
But he never wrote a Linda song

[Verse 2]
          C                  F
He nearly broke his heart at writing
      Am                     D
Linda kept him from despair
         G      C                 B
Standing by his side, through the hungry days
       Em                              E
But he hardly seemed to see her there

[Chorus]
       Am            Gm       F
And he never wrote a song for Linda
    Em      Dm    C    F          D   E
And she was right there all along
    Am        Gm          F      Em
The one real thing in his crazy world
       F             G          C      Fm    F  C
And he never wrote a Linda song

[Bridge]
C        C           G      F        Am
When the bills piled up and couldn't pay
A#                   C
He couldn't dream no more
      G                     Am
So he hitched a ride and he road away
       Fm              F            Am     D
And he left a note for Linda by the door
       G
By the door

[Verse 3]
     C                    F
When times got rough he'd phone her
        Am                       D
Once or twice she took the call
         G           C              B
Then she changed her number and she turned her head
    Em                               E
And Linda never looked back at all

[Chorus]
            Am      Gm       F
He'll never write a song for Linda
    Em      Dm    C    F          D   E
And she was right there all along
Am     Gm               F    Em
All he knows, is no one understands
       F             G          C     Fm     F  C
And he never wrote a Linda song
       F             G          C     Fm     F  C
No, he never wrote a Linda song
