C G F Dm7 G G+ So I'm down and so I'm out...but so are many others; C G F Dm7 G G7 So I feel like tryin' to hide my head beneath these covers, F Em F Dm7-5 G Life is like the seasons - after winter comes the spring. C G F G C So I'll keep this smile awhile, and see what tomorrow brings C G F Dm7 G G+ I've been told and I believe that life is meant for livin'; C G F Dm7 G G7 And even when my chips are low, there's still some left for givin'. F Em F Dm7-5 G I've been many places, maybe not as far as you; C G F G C So I think I'll stay awhile and see if some dreams come true. Bridge: F Bm7-5 E7 A7 There isn't much that I have learned Dm7 G7 C Through all my foolish years F Em A7 Life keeps runnin' on in cycles - F Em Dm7-5 G First there's laughter, then those tears. C G F Dm7 G G+ But I'll keep my head up high, although I'm kinda tired; C G F Dm7 G G7 My gal just up and left last week; Friday, I got fired. F Em F Dm7-5 G You know it's almost funny, but things can't get worse than now, C G F G C So I'll keep on tryin' to sing...but please, just don't ask me how.
