    Sonja

    Lyle Lovett

     

           D

    I’ve never been lucky

         G               D
    At picking up women

                G             D
    But this life that I live

             Em            A
    Is not one that I choose

    G                D
    She was a waitress

              G                   D
    With hair blond and curly

                 G                 D
    With a pretty black dress

                    A              D
    And those japanese shoes

    CHORUS:

              A
    Man I need to impress her

                    G            D
    ’cause I’d like to undress her

                  G                D
    I need a song about sonja

                    A          D
    When I’m singing tonight

     

    D
    She looked so pretty

           G                  D
    As she poured my coffee

           G               D
    But she had her eye

                 Em             A
    On my friend at the bar

           G                     D
    And I watched her watch him

          G                      D
    And I watched her thinking

    G              A                D
    I wish her eye was on me

    Chorus

          A
    And if I could sing her

        G               D
    A tender love ballad

    G                        D
    I’d hope that the audience

    Em              A

    might sing along

             G                 D
    But I can’t find the right way

         G               D
    To tell her my feelings

            G                   D                       A
    And still make the words rhyme with sonja

                 D

    No I’ve never been lucky

         G               D
    At picking up women

                G             D
    But this life that I live

             Em            A
    Is not one that I choose

    G                 D
    She was a waitress

             G               D
    Now she’s gone forever

                    G                  D
    And I’m stuck with this song

               A           D
    That I never will use

                   A                    
    Man you need to impress her

                G                      D
    If you want to undress her

               G               D
    Sing a song about sonja

                        A            D
    When you’re singing tonight

              G                  D
    Sing a song about sonja

                        A            D
    When you’re singing tonight
