Intro: Bm F#m G A
              Bm
With the money from her accident
       G                                  D         D/C#
She bought herself a mobile home
         A                                           G
So at least she could get some enjoyment
                       Bm     A
Out of being alone
                      G                                               D
No one could say that she was left up on the shelf
                     A
"It's you and me against the world, kid", she mumbled to herself

Bridge/chorus:
     Em G* D* A* Em G* D* Bm*

                     Em              G*    D*               A         Bm
     When the world falls apart some things stay in place
     G                       A                       Bm      F#m
     Levi Stubbs' tears run down his face

              Bm                     G                            D          D/C#            
She ran away from home in her mother's best coat
                A                                                G          Bm     A
She was married before she was even entitled to vote
             G                                       D
And her husband was one of those blokes
                      A                              Bm
The sort who only laughs at his own jokes
                 G                D
The sort a war takes away
                          A
And when there wasn't a war, he left anyway


(REPEAT BRIDGE/CHORUS)


G**         D**                F#m      A
Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong
       G**                D**         F#m               A
Are here to make right everything that's wrong
G**               D**                            F#m
Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too
       A
Are here to make it all okay with you


And one dark night he came home from the sea
And put a hole in her body where no hole should be
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door
And though they stitched her back together 
They left her heart in pieces on the floor


A                        G                  A                            Bm         A
    When the world falls apart some things stay in place
                 G                               A                              Bm       
She takes off the Four Tops tape and puts it back in its case
                A
When the world falls apart some things stay in place
Levi Stubbs' tears...
