Here's the 'overture' to one of the finest albums in rock history:

Intro: 

Cm  Ab  Cm  Ab  

F   |G  Gb F  x 2,  F   |G  C   


Verse 1

F                               G    Gb F
They say some days you're gonna win,
                                G     Gb F
They say some days you're gonna lose.
                          G   Gb F
I tell you I got news for you
                                   G
Your losin' all the time you never win
C                     E                     F              Fm
If you believe that's how it's gonna be I'd better put you down
C                                E
Get off your tightrope up there, come down on the ground 
           F
You gotta save me now, 
           Fm            
You better turn around.  


Chorus

Am             F            Am      D7
   Hey! When I looked around, I was heading down.
C     G   Am  C7 F        E7     Am
Won't some-bo-dy throw me down a line.

F   |G  Gb F  x 2     


Verse 2

F                            G     Gb F
They say some days you gotta give…
F                            G     Gb F
They say some days you gotta take
F                            G   Gb F
If that's the way it's gotta be,
                 G
Roll it over and you will see.
C                            E                           F    Fm
The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time.
C                               E
The change from night to day is really only hours,
          F                        Fm            
It's just along the line can't you see the sign
Chorus

Am              F            Am      D7
   Hey!  When I looked around, I was heading down,
C     G   Am  C7 F        E7     Cm
Won't some-bo-dy throw me down a line!
         Ab    Cm           Ab   G
Somebody,         somebody…



Verse 3

F                                  G    Gb F
I want to look you straight in the eye,
F                               G     Gb F
I want to tell you how I really feel,
F                     G            Gb  F   
I can feel the wheels turnin' round,
F                       G        
Won't somebody throw me down a line
C                            E                           F    Fm
The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time.
C                               E
The change from night to day is really only hours,
          F                        Fm            
It's just along the line can't you see the sign



Chorus 2

Am        F             Am      D7
   When I closed my eyes, I was so surprised
C    G  Am C7  F         E7     Am               
Some-bo-dy had thrown me down a line
           D7
Stopped me drownin'
C    G  Am C7  F         G      Cm   
Some-bo-dy had thrown me down a line… 
         Ab    Cm            Ab     
Somebody,         somebody…
