         C9                     F9
When the hangover strikes and I open my post 
        C9                   F9
And the coffee is on and I'm burning my toast
          F         Bb7
I let the battle commence

        Cmaj7                  Dm
I see a sun in the trees and a draught at the door
        Em                       Bb7     [Fill1]
With my head in my lap there's a day to explore

Ab7       G7           C9   F9  C9  [Fill2]
  But I'm left without sense

F   133211    Dm     x57765    G7  3234xx

       C9                     F9
As the hangover strikes and I turn on the tap 
        C9                       F9
But the water's too loud and I'm caged by the fact
         F            Bb7
That the battle's not lost
          Cmaj7                  Dm
Is it the hair of the dog or the baa of the lamb
     Em                     Bb7        [Fill1]
In a sheepish attempt to be half of the man that I might be

Ab7 G7  C9  F9  C9  [Fill2]
Or      was

F           Bb7        Cmaj7    Dm  Em  F#m
Poor, poor, poor, poor   shaken one

Pour, pour, pour, pour me another one, another one

         C9                       F9  
When the hangover strikes and the mirror reveals 
          C9                     F
That it's midnight or bust and a drink does appeal
        F         Bb7
Now the battle is won
       Cmaj7                     Dm
So the cure of the can pours its heart out to me
           Em                      Bb7  [Fill1]
Though I'm feeling locked up and I can't find the key
     Ab7   G7     C9  F9  C9   [Fill2]
Well,   no damage was     done

Notes:
I've tried to show how you might play this lovely part but you should feel
your way with this, yourself. Play slowly and gently.
