| C Em/B | Am C/G | 


[Verse]
C             Em/B   Am          C/G
  I’m walking through the summer nights
C        Em/B       Am   C/G
  Jukebox   playing low
C           Em/B      Am             C/G
  Yesterday everything was going too fast
C       Em/B             Am    C/G
  Today, it’s moving too slow
F      Bb(sus2)               F      Bb(sus2)
 I got no place left to turn
F              Bb(sus2)        F   G
 I got nothing left to burn
      C                 Em/B        Am                     C/G
Don’t know if I saw you, if I would kiss you or kill you
C                      Em/B             Am    C/G
  It probably wouldn’t matter to you anyhow
F            C       G                D
 You left me standing in the doorway, crying
F                            C
 I got nothing to go back to now


[Verse]
C                   Em/B Am     C/G
  The light in this place is so bad
C           Em/B        Am      C/G
  Making me sick in the head
C         Em/B    Am                 C/G
  All the laughter is just making me sad
C               Em/B           Am       C/G
  The stars have turned cherry red
F                 Bb(sus2)  F      Bb(sus2)
 I’m strumming on my gay guitar
F          Bb(sus2 F       G
 Smoking a cheap cigar
C                  Em/B    Am             C/G
  The ghost of our old love has not gone away
C                             Em/B         Am       C/G
  Don’t look [it (?)] like it will anytime soon
F            C       G                D
 You left me standing in the doorway, crying
F                    C
  Under the midnight moon


[Interlude]
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 


[Verse]
C               Em/B  Am              C/G
  Maybe they’ll get me and maybe they won’t
C                       Em/B      Am     C/G
  But not tonight and it won’t be here
C                          Em/B  Am     C/G
  There are things I could say    but I don’t
C                     Em/B        Am       C/G
  I know the mercy of God must be near
F          Bb(sus2)            F      Bb(sus2)
 I’ve been riding the midnight train
F                 Bb(sus2)  F   G
 Got ice water in my veins
C                 Em/B           Am       C/G
  I would be crazy if I took you back
C                 Em/B         Am      C/G
  It would go up against every rule
F            C       G                D
 You left me standing in the doorway, crying
F                  C
  Suffering like a fool


[Interlude]
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 


[Verse]
         C        Em/B Am              C/G
When the last rays      of daylight go down
C               Em/B    Am      C/G
  Buddy, you’ll roll no more
C                       Em/B   Am              C/G
  I can hear the church bells   ringing in the yard
C                     Em/B     Am          C/G
  I wonder who they’re ringing for
F               Bb(sus2)   F   Bb(sus2)
 I know I can’t win
F                  Bb(sus2)   F      G
 But my heart just won’t give in
C              Em/B          Am        C/G
  Last night I danced with a stranger
        C             Em/B            Am      C/G
But she just reminded me you were the one
F            C       G                D
 You left me standing in the doorway, crying
F                        C
 In the dark land of the sun


[Interlude]
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 
| C Em/B | Am C/G | 


[Verse]
C                   Em/B   Am              C/G
  I’ll eat when I’m hungry, drink when I’m dry
C             Em/B        Am          C/G
  And live my life on the square
C                Em/B        Am         C/G
  And even if the flesh falls off of my face
C                     Em/B        Am      C/G
  I know someone will be there to care
F          Bb(sus2)       F      Bb(sus2)
 It always means so much
F           Bb(sus2)        F   G
   Even the softest touch
      C                      Em/B   Am       C/G
I see nothing to be gained by   any   explanation
       C              Em/B       Am      C/G
There’s no words that need to be  said
F            C               G        D
 You left me standing in the doorway, crying
F                         C
  Blues wrapped around my head
