            Dm7              CM7
They pay me not to come home
           Keeping me stoned
I won't run away

              Dm7         CM7
They say it's easy to get
       Stuck in this town
Just like John

           Dm7         CM7         A#M7
You know I give it all up for the stage
      Dm7    CM7         A#M7
They fill my cup in the cage
              Dm7          FM7           A#M7
It's nobody's business but mine when I'm low
         FM7     Dm7       A#M7           FM7
To hold yourself up not a crime here you know
       A#          Dm
At the end of the world

      Dm7      CM7        A#M7
And I kick my foot at the lights
   D#M7      CM7    CM7
I breathe it in all night
          Dm7        CM7    A#M7
There's a light on a canvas tree
D#M7       CM7             CM7
Money from home supporting me

            Dm7              CM7
They pay me not to come home
            I won't eat crow
I'll stay away

           Dm7        CM7     A#M7     FM7
And though all roads will not lead you home my girl
Dm7       CM7         A#          Dm
All roads lead to the end of the world

   Dm7           CM7              FM7       A#M7
I sewed a little luck up into the hem of my gown
         Dm7               CM7     FM7    A#M7
The only way down from the gallows is to swing
   Dm7      CM7      FM7     A#M7
And I wear boots instead of high heels
              Dm7       Cm   CM7   A#M7       FM7     Dm7
And the next stage that I am on it will have wheels
