VERSE 1

[D] The phone is [Am7] ringing, [Gmaj7] the kettle’s [G6] singing [D] [Am7] [Gmaj7] [G6]

[D] This humid [Am7] heaven [Gmaj7] is west e [G6] leven
[D] The airless [Am7] silence, [Gmaj7] June eighty- [G6] seven

The [C7] grey bed, next to the wall [Dm] holds them
[C7] Tense but still asleep, [Dm] dreaming

VERSE 2

[D] They only [Am7] wanted [Gmaj7] to want each [G6] other
[D] But that can [Am7] never, [Gmaj7] ever [G6] happen

[C7] All the luck in the world won’t [Gm] save [Dm] you
[C7] You’re not broke anymore, you [Abmaj7] trod on their [Gm] hands
So [Abmaj7] sleep on and [Gm] on

CHORUS

[F#] Good [F#maj7] bye and [Bmaj7] goodbye (x2)

VERSE 3

[D] I found a [Am7] bullet [Gmaj7] with your name [G6] on it
[D] I ran and [Am7] hid it, [Gmaj7] you didn’t [G6] see it

[C7] Tanks rolled through the peaceful [Gm] streets [Dm] and
[C7] Smiling hippies held [Abmaj7] guns and gre [Gm7] nades

CHORUS

[F#] Good [F#maj7] bye and [Bmaj7] goodbye (x2)

[Bb] [Fm7] [Eb] [Ab]
[Bb] [Fm7] [Eb] Let’s tax the wages of sin [Ab]

INTERLUDE

[Bb] [Fm7] [Eb] [Ab] (x2)

VERSE 4

[D] And in his [Am7] dreaming, [Gmaj7] he rolls with [G6] strangers
[D] As she [Am7] looks on [Gmaj7] smiling [G6] faintly

[C7] Time stands still for a while, they [Gm] still [Dm] slide
[C7] Soon when they awake they’ll [Amaj7] shed sweat and [Abm7] tears in [Amaj7] acts of love which [Abm7] say

CHORUS

[F#] Good [F#maj7] bye and [Bmaj7] goodbye (x4)
