Intro: Bm F#m G A
BmWith the money from her accident
G D D/C#She bought herself a mobile home
A GSo at least she could get some enjoyment
Bm AOut of being alone
G DNo one could say that she was left up on the shelf
A"It's you and me against the world, kid", she mumbled to herself
Bridge/chorus: Em G* D* A* Em G* D* Bm*
Em G* D* A Bm When the world falls apart some things stay in place
G A Bm F#m Levi Stubbs' tears run down his face
Bm G D D/C# She ran away from home in her mother's best coat
A G Bm AShe was married before she was even entitled to vote
G DAnd her husband was one of those blokes
A BmThe sort who only laughs at his own jokes
G DThe sort a war takes away
AAnd when there wasn't a war, he left anyway
G** D** F#m ANorman Whitfield and Barratt Strong
G** D** F#m AAre here to make right everything that's wrong
G** D** F#mHolland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too
AAre here to make it all okay with you
And one dark night he came home from the sea And put a hole in her body where no hole should be It hurt her more to see him walking out the door And though they stitched her back together They left her heart in pieces on the floor
A G A Bm A When the world falls apart some things stay in place
G A Bm She takes off the Four Tops tape and puts it back in its case
AWhen the world falls apart some things stay in place
Levi Stubbs' tears... (instrumental)
