    Intro: / G - - - / x4

     

    G                                 C

    Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a Corvette

    A7                                    B7

    Thinks he'll get the girl he'll only get the mechanic

            E7 (4 w/E7 Riff)      [Cm]               D (break)

    What's missing? He's living a day he'll soon forget

     

           C                    D7

    That's one more time around    The sun is going down

         B7                                       E7

    The moon is out but he's drunk and shouting  Putting people down

          [Am]         [D7]                        G (4, w/G riff)

    He's pissing. He's living a day he'll soon forget

     

    Bridge:

    D7                        C

      Counts his money every morning

    D7                              C

       The only thing that keeps him horny

    D7                                 C

      Locked in a giant house that's alarming

         Cm                 D (break)

    The townsfolk they all laugh

     

    G                                 C

    Sorry is the fool who trades his love for hi-rise rent

    A7                                 B7

    Seem the more you make equals the loneliness you get

              E7 (4 w/E7 Riff)            [Cm]              D (break)

    And it's fitting He's barely living a day he'll soon forget

     

           C                    D7

    That's one more time around   and there is not a sound

          B7                                    E7

    He's lying dead clutching Benjamins   never   put the money down

          [Am]                    D7 (hold, fermata)

    He's stiffening   We're all whistling  a man we'll soon

        G (3, w/G riff)

    forget

     

    End on G
