[Verse 1]
C5                      Cmaj7(no3)         C5            C7(no3) C7sus2
      Treated you like a rusty blade, a throwaway from an open   grave,
Eb6sus2                      Dm7             C5          Cmaj7(no3)
       Cut you loose from a chain -gang, and let you go,
C5                    Cmaj7(no3)       C5               C7(no3)   C7sus2
    And on the day you said it's true, some love holds, some gets used,
Eb6sus2                      Dm7                C5
        Tried to tell you I never knew it could be so sweet!


[Verse 2]
Ab                Gm11    Gm
    Who could ever be so cruel?
F5                      Eb6sus2    Dm7  Gadd4   G4  Gadd4
Blame the devil for the things you do---------,
C5                      C7sus2 
     It's such a selfish way to lose,
   Eb6sus2               Dm7                 C5
The way you lose these wasted blues, these wasted blues!


[Chorus]
                       C9sus4            Dm7           C5 
||:  Tell me that it's nobody's fault, nobody's fault, but my own! :|| [x4]


[Verse 3]
Cmaj7(no3) C5                     Cmaj7(no3)   C5           C7(no3)  C7sus2
              When the moon is a counterfeit better find the one that fits,
Eb6sus2                 Dm7                 C5          Cmaj7(no3)
        Better find the one that lights the way for you,
C5                  Cmaj7(no3)         C5              C7(no3)  C7sus2
    When the road is full of nails, garbage pails, and darkened jails,
Eb6sus2                                 Dm7                  C5
        And their tongues are full of heartless tales that drain on you!


[Verse 4]
Ab                 Gm11   Gm        F5        Eb6sus2 Dm7  Gadd4   G4 Gadd4
    Who would ever notice you, and fade into a shaded room------?
C5                     C7sus2
    It's such a selfish way to lose,
   Eb6sus2               Dm7                 C5
The way you lose these wasted blues, these wasted blues!


[Chorus]
                       C9sus4            Dm7           C5
||:  Tell me that it's nobody's fault, nobody's fault, but my own! :|| [x4]

[Coda]
                   C9sus4           Dm7           C5
Tell me that it's nobody's fault, nobody's fault, but my own,
                   C9sus4           Dm7
Tell me that it's nobody's fault, nobody's fault,
C5                 C9sus4           Dm7           C5
But my own-----------------------------------!
