Intro:

Am  Am/B  C  C/D   F  F1  [two times]

Am            Am/B          C              F     F1
  This is the place where I made my best mistakes
Am            Am/B       C                 D
  This is the place even angels don't understand
Am              Am/B  C               F
  I've seen the disappointment in her face
        D               Bm            C             D
And the collection of engagement rings on her right hand
Am         Am/B   C             F    F1
  She sits alone apart from the crowd
     Am         Am/B       C               D
In a white dress she wears like a question mark
Am               Am/B  C 
  Friends speak of her fondly
                       F
Enemies just think out loud
                 D             Bm
You think you're man enough to please her
           C              D
And you're fool enough to start
G                               C              G
  You're not going to do a thing to our little angel
D                                       C                    D
 There's nothing you're thinking tonight that tomorrow won't change

Now the cabaret is frozen and the laughter comes in cans
And the lonely hearts club clientele don't know what to do 
  with their hands
You think that you'll be sweet to her but everybody knows
That you're the marshmallow valentine that got stuck on her clothes
You're not going to do a thing to our little angel
                                                            F
There's nothing you're thinking tonight that tomorrow won't change

[Chords through solo:]
D   D   G   D   A   A   G   C   A

So you mix your drinks and words
You make bad jokes you make bad time
The floors are there to walk over
The walls are there to climb
You swear you'll never go back again once you're inside
You're never the bridegroom she's always the bride
You're not going to do a thing to our little angel
There's nothing you're thinking tonight that tomorrow won't change

G                                      C         G
 You'll come in a sweetheart and you'll go out a stranger
         D
Well you try to love her but she's so contrary
Like a chainsaw running through a dictionary
                                        C           D  G
So get your mind off the sweet behind of our little angel
G
 You're not going to do a thing

 You're not going to do a thing
                     Em        D                   G
 You're not going to do a thing to our little angel

Am           Am6
This is the place
