INTRO       Dm7      E7,  Gm7*    Dm7,   2X

Dm7               E7                        Bbmaj7           Dm7
I DECLINE     TO WALK THE LINE         THEY TELL ME THAT I'M LAZY
Dm7                  E7                 Bb          Dm7
WORLDY WISE       I REALISE       THAT EVERYBODY'S CRAZY

Ab        Eb/G bass       Bb         Ab/C bass      Bb/C bass      Cm7
A WOMAN'S VOICE        REMINDS ME TO SERVE AND      NOT TO         SPEAK
Abmaj7         Ebmaj7/G bass    Ab          Ab/F# bass
AM I MYSELF OR JUST ANOTHER     FREAK         YOU KNOW THERE'S...

CHORUS

Bb/Ab bass   Gsus- G        Cm7            Ab
FIRE IN THE HOLE       AND NOTHING LEFT TO BURN
    Bb       F      Eb           Eb      Ab      Bb
I'D LOVE TO RUN OUT NOW THERE'S NOWHERE LEFT TO TURN

SOLO

Dm7             E7              Bbmaj7          Dm7
WITH A COUGH I SHAKE IT OFF AND WORK AROUND MY YELLOW STRIPE
Dm7              E7              Bbmaj7          Dm7
SHOULD I HIDE OR EAT MY PRIDE OR WAIT UNTIL IT'S GOOD & RIPE


    Ab     Eb/G bass      Bb        Ab/C bass   Bb/C bass   Cm7
MY LIFE IS BOILING        OVER IT'S HAPPENED     ONCE      BEFORE
Abmaj7               Ebmaj7/G bass        Ab      Ab/F# bass
I WISH SOMEONE WOULD OPEN UP  THE        DOOR      DONT YOU KNOW
THERE'S.....

REPEAT CHORUS



Dm7-----xx0211            E7-----xx2434       Bbmaj7------x13131
