The Am's that aren't in the bridge could also be C's, but I kind of like the minor sound.



INTRO: G


         G          D
You were saving the date
         C           D
But you woke up too late
            G          D          C      D
Pulled the covers down over your head
             G               D
You haven't left your front door
       C          D
For a week maybe more
          G               D              C     D
Tell me, hey, what's the news from your bed


               Am                           D
You know your face is all covered with your birthday cake
             G             D          Em
That you're eating in the kitchen at home
         Am             D
Another banner year, a splendid day
         G       D               Em
Another inch or two that you've grown
          Am                       C  D
But it's hard to celebrate on your own


           G            D             C             D
There's a mouse in the cupboard that nibbles your crumbs
         G           D     C    D
And you talk to him every night
          G         D             C             D
You say, 'Hey, Mr. Whiskers, I'm bored and I'm numb
         G           D             C       D
You can stay if you just treat me right


 Am                       D         
Just last year you were fortunate baby
          G                D            Em
And your friends circled around you in droves
          Am                D
Are they thinking of you? Maybe just maybe
     G             D           Em
But not a one has bothered to phone
         Am                        C   D
Tell me where, oh, where did they go?


INTERLUDE: G D C D x4


BRIDGE:
Am                     G
Called a car about an hour ago
             Am
You're gonna take yourself out
             G
Despite the cold and snow
           Am
Did they forget about you?
         G
Are they in on it too?
                Am
You're sitting looking in the mirror
         G       C       C  D
At your dancing shoes


           G      D              C            D
When your family calls you make nice to them all
       G                D                C    D
And assure them you're fine and you're great
          G          D             C            D
Then you cry in the bath, cry so hard that you laugh
          G         D          C      D
Then you watch television til late


Am                D  
Who do you need?   Nobody
        G      D        Em
You're lucky nobody's around
       Am
I can pour my own drinks
D                      G       D          Em
No thanks, Mister. Go on, and get out of town
             Am                      C D G
And you're gorgeous in your evening gown
