_____Verse: 1

E/B A E A When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights
E/G# D/F# A The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
D E Prima donna, lord you really should have been there
D E A Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
Am F# And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore
A We've all gone crazy lately
F#/A# E/B B7 My friends out there rollin' round the basement floor. Ooh______
_____Chorus:
A E/G# F#m7 E/G# And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear (sugar bear___)
A E/G# F#m7 You almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear
E/G# A E/G# You nearly had me roped and tied
A F#7/A# Altar-bound, hypnotized,
E/B Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
F#/A# You're a butterfly
A And butterflies are free to fly
F#7/A# E/B G# A Fly away, high away, bye bye

E/B A E A I never realized the passing hours of evening showers,
E/G# D/F# A A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
D E I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
D E A Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
Am It's four o'clock in the morning
F# Damn it! Listen to me good
A I'm sleeping with myself tonight
F#/A# E/B B7 Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive, Oh________

F#7 E/G# And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
C#m/G# Clinging to your stocks and bonds
A/E Paying your H.P. demands forever
F#m7 E/G# They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
