Man On The Line   by   Chris de Burgh


INTRO: Em - C - D     Em - C - D

          Em                     Am         Em
There's a man on the line, he is wasting my time,
            Am                  B7
He calls me every day, he's got nothing to say,
           Em                   Am           Em
And at the dead of night when I turn out the light,
    Am                    B7
The telephone rings, it's him again!


C                     D
I wouldn't mind if he told me,
C                           D
Just what the hell is going on,
C                  D
He like a man in a fever,
C                        D
I know that something is wrong,
                     C
He's whispering your name!


          Em                         Am         Em
There's a man on the line, and he is wasting my time,
            Am               B7
He calls me everyday, and he won't go away,
      Em                      Am         Em
Is he part of a plan, is he a government man?
     Am                      B7
Well one thing is true, he's after you!


C                  D
He must be totally crazy,
C                     D
He must be out of his mind,
C                    D
To be in love with a lady,
C                     D
Ah, when that lady is mine,
                  C       D             C
He's whispering your name,  whispering your name,


[CHORUS:]
G    D   G    D
Tell me, tell me,
G                 C    D    C  D
How many men have seen this heaven,
G             C  D
How many down in flames,
G            C   D       C D
How many men are lost forever,
Em       C        D
How many still in chains?
                 C        D            F    Em - C - D - Em - C - D - Em
Just whispering your name, whispering your name...


          Em                             Am         Em
There's a man on the line and he's still wasting my time,
            Am                      B7
He calls me day after day and it's always the same,
           Em                        Am           Em
And at the dead of the night, when I turn out the light,
    Am                         B7
The telephone rings, yes, it's him again


C                      D
He's got me deep in suspicion,
C                      D
He's got me looking at you,
C                    D
He like a man with a mission,
C                        D
Ah, tell me what did you do?
                 C         D            C
He's whispering your name,  whispering your name,


[CHORUS:]
G    D   G    D
Tell me, tell me,
G                 C    D    C  D
How many men have seen this heaven,
G             C  D
How many down in flames,
G            C   D       C D
How many men are lost forever,
Em       C        D
How many still in chains?
                 C        D             C
Just whispering your name, whispering your name...

Oh there's a man on the line
          Em                C    D
There's a man on the line
