[Verse 1]
DI hear the Seven Deadly Sins
Bm GAnd the Terrible Twins came to call on you
D The bigger they are baby
AThe harder they fall on you
D D/F# G A DAnd you you're always the same you persevere
D/F# GOn the same old pleasure ground
D/F# G A GOh and it never rains around here
A DIt just comes pouring down
[Verse 2]
DYou had no more volunteers
Bm GSo you got profiteers for to help you out
DWell with friends like that babe
AGood friends you had to do without
D D/F# G A DAnd now they've taken the chains and the gears
D/F# GFrom off your merry-go-round
D/F# G A GOh and it never rains around here
A DIt just comes pouring down
[Verse 3]
DNow your new Romeo
Bm GWas just a gigolo when he let you down
D See the faster they are babe
AThe faster they get out of town
D G A DLeaving make up stains and the tears
GOf a clown
Bm D/F# G A G Yes and it never rains around here
A DIt just comes pouring down
[Bridge 1]
A Em A EmOh you were just a roller coaster memory
A Em A Em G-DI don't know why I was even passing through
A Em A Em D-GSaw you making a date with Destiny
A Em A EmWhen he came around here asking after you
A Em A Em A EmIn the shadow of the Wheel of Fortune
A Em A Em G-DYou're busy trying to clear your name
A Em A Em D-GYou say 'I may be guilty yeah that may be true
A Em A Em A EmBut I'd be lying if I said I was to blame
A Em A EmSee we could have been major contenders
A Em A EmWe never got no money no breaks'
A Em A EmYou've got a list of all the major offenders
A Em A Em A G-DYou got a list of all their major mistakes
A Em A EmAnd he just standing on the shadows
A Em A Em G-DYes and he smile that come-on smile
A Em A EmOh I can still hear you say as clear as the day
A Em A Em'I'd like to make it worth your while'
[Verse 3]
DOh but it's a sad reminder
Bm GWhen your organ grinder has to come to you for the rent
DAnd all you've got to give him
AIs the use of your side-show tent
D G A DYes and that's all that remains of the years
GSpent doing the rounds
Bm D/F# G A G Yes and it never rains around here
A DIt just comes pouring down
[Bridge 2]
A Em A EmNow you know what they say about beggars
A Em A EmYou can't complain about the rules
A Em A EmAnd you know what they say about beggars
A Em A Em D-GYou know who's the first to blame his tools
A Em A EmYou never gave a damn about who you pick up
A Em A Em G-DAnd leave layin' bleedin' on the ground
A Em A EmYou screw people over on the way up
A Em A EmBecause you thought that you were never coming down
A Em A EmAnd he'll take you out in Vaudeville Valley
A Em A Em G-DWith his hand up smothering your screams
A Em A Em DAnd he'll screw you down in Tin Pan Alley
A Em A EmIn the city of a billion dreams
