G        D                           Em
C GWell I prayed that the sun was a hope and the rain was an angel
D Em C
GI came out of the treetop and into the cradle
D Em
C GAnd I broke down like a babe with the hungriest belly
D Em C GYou make it all worth my while
G D Em C
GWell I lay under the covers for a hundred days
D Em C
GAnd I closed both my eyes til the relatives came
D Em C
GAnd I spun round in a circle til I came undone
D Em C G
Em C DYou make it all worth my while
G DSo send me to the grave with the age old question
Em CHow'd I get into this beautiful mess?
G DIt was never my intention and never my style
Em C GEverything about you is worth my while
D Em C
GI laughed so nobody ever had to catch me crying
D Em C
GAnd I cried so nobody ever had to catch me lying
D Em C
GAnd I failed a thousand times but it keeps me trying
D Em C G
Em C DYou make it all worth my while
G DSo send me to the grave with the age old question
Em CHow'd I get into this beautiful mess?
G DIt was never my intention and never my style
Em C GEverything about you is worth my while
G DSo send me to the grave with the age old question
Em CHow'd I get into this beautiful mess?
G DIt was never my intention and never my style
Em C GEverything about you is worth my while
G DSo send me to the grave with the age old question
Em CHow'd I get into this beautiful mess?
G DIt was never my intention and never my style
Em CSome things happen and I don't know why
G DAnd it all comes down at the end of the day
Em CIts hard to handle and its hard to take
G DIts a mighty big world, mighty big game
Em CI've been broken and I've been ashamed
G DI've been caught in the world, out in the blue,
Em C G
D EmCrashed to the floor but I still have you
C G D EmI still have you
C G D EmI still have you
C G D EmI still have you
C G D EmI still have you
(I think it threw out the spacing a little, but if you stick to the patterns (G-D-Em-C and G-Em-C-D) and switch every two counts, you'll be sweet. You know the song anyway! Otherwise, listen to the track for the timing. Sorry about that!
