       A5                         F5
We had broken up for good just an hour before,
      G5             A5
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
            A5                               F5
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing 'cross the floor.
      G5             A5
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
             A5                             F5
And then the band slowed the tempo, and the music gets you down.
      G5             A5
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
           A5                    F5
It was the same old song, with a melancholy sound.
      GG             A5  G5 F5
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

Chorus:
           C5                     G5    D5
They don't write 'em like that anymore.
                F5                     C5      G5 G5
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.

We'd been living together for a million years,
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
But now it feels so strange out of the atmospheres.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
             Intro x 2
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

Chorus:

Intro x 2

Now I'm winding up staring at an empty glass
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
Cause it's so easy to say that you'll forget your past.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write 'em like that anymore.
No, they just don't write 'em like that anymore.
Oh, they don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't, no they don't, no no, uh-uh,
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't...(fades)
