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.


       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.
