G            
Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride  
 
   D           G         D        G  
Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite  
 
          D       G  C                      F  
I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more  
 
C           G       D                 D  
  I don't expect to sleep through the night  
 
     D      C     G       D       G  
Some people say a lie's a lie's a lie  
 
    D G   C  
But I say why  
 
             F       C       
Why deny the obvious child?  
 
              F       C      G   
 Why deny the obvious child?  
 
 
         D           G    C     
And in remembering a road sign  
 
G        D     C     G         D     G     C   
  I am remembering a girl when I was young  
 
F C        G          D         G  
    And we said These songs are true  
 
      D        G  
These days are ours  
 
      D         G  
These tears are free  
 
    D  G   
And hey  
 
C                     F   C     
  The cross is in the ballpark  
 
                     F   C    G    
 The cross is in the ballpark  
 
 
      
We had a lot of fun  
 
                       D C   
We had a lot of money  
 
   G                                                    D C      
We had a little son and we thought we'd call him Sonny  
 
           D           G            
Sonny gets married and moves away  
 
C           D        G              
Sonny has a baby and bills to pay  
 
C          D         
Sonny gets sunnier  
 
G             C      D     
Day by day by day by day  
 
 
G                       
  Doh, doh,  doh, doh  
 
                       
 Doh, doh,  doh, doh  
 
 
                 D      C     G         
 Well, I've been waking up at sunrise  
 
           D             G      D        G  
 I've been following the light across my room  
 
  D     G   C                 F       C  G  D    
I watch the night receive the room of my day  
 
G      D      C       G      D        G  
  Some people say the sky is just the sky  
 
    D G     
But I say  
 
C              F       C        
  Why deny the obvious child?  
 
              F       C        
 Why deny the obvious child?  
 
 
 
G   C/G G     
Mm---------  
 
 
C/G   G    C  G   D          C                   
Sonny sits by his window and thinks to himself  
 
     D    G       C    G    D              C       
 How it's strange that some rooms are like cages  
 
    D    G   C    G    D     
 Sonny's yearbook from high school  
 
   C               
Is down from the shelf  
 
D       C G  D                  C       
And he id-ly thumbs through the pages  
 
      Ab   Bbm    
 Some have died  
 
           G                      
 Some have fled from themselves  
 
    C    G    D    G    D  G   D       
 Or struggled from here to get there  
 
 C     G  C    G D          C        
 Sonny wanders beyond his interior walls  
 
         G    C       G   D              C      
Runs his hand through his thinning brown hair  
 
 
                          G             
Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride  
 
   D           G         D        G  
Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite  
 
          D       G  C                      F  
I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more  
 
C           G       D                 D  
  I don't expect to sleep through the night  
 
     D      C     G       D       G  
Some people say a lie's a lie's a lie  
 
    D G     
But I say   
 
C                     F   C      
  the cross is in the ballpark  
 
              F C     G                    
 Why deny the obvious    child?
