Head On Straight  by Graham Parker

I picked this up by listening to the song on the radio, (I don't actually own the song 
so there may be some differences in the lyrics and one or two chords. Please correct me 
I'm wrong.  It's a great song for a recovering alcoholic like me.

C                   C7
I had my day in the sun
          F           Fm7
Then it rained every day
       D          D9
Every day was no fun
      C                 E     A    A7
But things are looking up of late
F                 Fm7       C      G
Now Iíve got my head on straight.


I had my week in the news
But Iím old news now
Iím not the new they choose
But things are looking up of late,
Now Iíve got my head on straight.

C             A#          C
You put that sugar in my cup
A                   A7        F
You came and stood my spirits up
                A#            C
You took that monkey off my back
                A         A7   F
And now Iím feeling back on track

Oh yeh.

I lost it all in the crash
I lost all I had
I lost all my cash
But things are looking up of late,
Now Iíve got my head on straight.

You put that sugar in my cup
You came and stood my spirits up
You took that monkey off my back
And now Iím feeling back on track
Oh yeh.

I spent my year on the roof
Gazing up at the stars
Thinking I was from Mars
But things are looking up of late,
Now youíve put my head on straight.
