Intro: | C | G/B | Am7 | C G |

C                          G/B         Am7                            C G
 It's been seven hours and sixteen days, since you took your love away
C                         G/B          Am7                            C G
 I go out every night and sleep all day, since you took your love away
C                                  G/B        Am7                          C G
 Since you been gone, I can do whatever I want, I can see whoever I choose
C                               G/B
 I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
    Am7                         E7
But nothing, nothing, can take away these blues
      Bb         F     Bb          F    G
cause nothing compares, nothing compares to you

C                        G/B          Am7                        C G
 It's been so lonely without you here, like a bird without a song
C                              G/B                        Am7                F
 Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling, tell me, where did I go wrong?
C                                 G/B          Am7                             C G
 I could throw my arms around any girl I choose, but it just reminds me of you
C                                       G/B
 I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
          Am7                                       E7
He said, "boy, you better try to have fun no matter what you do", but he's a fool
      Bb         F     Am7         G
cause nothing compares, nothing compares to you

| C | G/B | Am7 | E7 | Bb F | Am7 G | G |

C                                     G/B                Am7                         C G
All the flowers that you planted, mama, in your back yard all died when you went away
C                              G/B
 I know that living with me is sometimes hard
            Am7                      E7
but I'm willing to give it another try
      Bb         F     Am7         G
Cause nothing compares, nothing compares to you
Bb         F     Am7         G    Em      G       Em    G
Nothing compares, nothing compares to you, to you, to you
