Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
A# | F/A | A# | F/A  - x2
{{*}}
Verse 1:
 A#
Sitting here wasted and wounded
           F
This old piano
        A#
Trying hard to capture the moment
                F
This morning I don't know
{{*}}
          Am
'Cause a bottle of vodka
          A#
Is still lodged in my head
           F
And some blond gave me nightmares
                          A#
Think she is still in my bed
As I dream about movies
      C7                        F
They won't make of me when I'm dead
{{*}}
Verse 2:
        A#
With an ironclad fist I wake up
                     F
And French kiss the morning
            A#
While some marching band keepsits own beat
                        F
In my head while we're talking
{{*}}
      Am
About all of the things,
        A#
That I long to believe
       F
About love, the truth,
What you mean to me
          A#
And the truth is
             C           F   C
Baby, you're all that I need
{{*}}
Chorus:
         Dm
I wanna lay
     C         A#     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm
For tonight
    C         A#     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               A#
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     A#    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   A#
And lay you down
             F
On a bed of roses
{{*}}
Verse 3:
          A#
Well I'm so far away
                           F
Step that I take is on my way home
        A#
King's ransom in dimes
                                      F
Given each night to see through this payphone
{{*}}
         Am
Still I run out of time
         A#
Or it's hard to get through
          F
Till the bird on the wire
Flies me back to you
      A#
I'll just close my eyes, whisper
        C             F  C
Baby, blind love is true
{{*}}
Chorus:
         Dm
I wanna lay
     C         A#     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm
For tonight
    C         A#     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               A#
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     A#    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   A#
And lay you down
             F    C
On a bed of roses
{{*}}
Break:
           A#
Well this hotel bar hangover
  C                        F
Whiskey's gone dry the barkeeper's wig's crooked
And she's giving me the eye
   A#
I might have said yeah
       A#             C          F    C
But I laughed so hard I think I died, uh yeah!..

Verse 4:
        A#
Now as you close your eyes
                        F
Know I'll be thinking about you
          A#
While my mistress she calls me to stand
                   F
In her spotlight again
{{*}}
           A#
Tonight I won't be alone
                                      F
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
          Dm          C             A#
I've got nothing to prove for it's you
                   F   C
That I'd die to defend
{{*}}
Chorus:
         Dm
I wanna lay
     C         A#     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm
For tonight
    C         A#     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               A#
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     A#    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   A#
And lay you down...
{{*}}
         Dm
I wanna lay
     C         A#     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm
For tonight
    C         A#  F
I sleep on a be...ed of nails!
           A#
I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     A#    F
The Holy Ghost is!
 Dm  C   A#
Lay you down
            F
The bed of roses
