C     G  F      Am      G
Black Monday is coming around again,
       C     G      F          Am         G
and it feels like a friend who just won't take a hint.
          Dm          G          F         C
Cause it's hanging me up and it's hanging around.
        Am          G           F           C
And I'm feeling far too lost to feel too profound
         Am         G            F         C
when the tone of my voice is the loneliest sound,
   Am          G          F        C
my heroes have all become pathetic clowns
        Am          G           F           C      G
and I'm feeling far too lost to feel too profound.

My friend Kate, you laugh like a tidal wave.
But Charley don't surf on your laughter on Black Mondays.
And the shadows I feel are the shadows in me.
And not even your face or your beautiful smile
or the curve of your breasts or your laughing bright eyes
could make me believe I'm a winner tonight,
when Monday morning is just out of sight.
yeah Monday morning is just out of sight.

     Am       G             Am               G
Well I know a story about a man who couldn't see past his fingertips.
Dm C             G            Dm       C            G
To reach out and touch it was just too much like he needs it.
    Am       G                 Am                    G                     Dm
And I know a woman who reached out to me and all she got were my barb wire hands
      C              G
and I won't feel too proud
       Dm                                   G              C
if she can't depend on me when Black Monday starts coming 'round.

Solo (verse progression)

My friend Kate, you are sad and beautiful.
And the way I am has never been too good for us.
Cause I'm too blind to hear and I'm too deaf to see.
But I still have a voice that can call out your name
with a gut full of beer and a head full of pain.
I can lie in your arms and be lovers again
and thank God Tuesday morning is just hours away,
thank God Tuesday morning is just hours away.  Yeah.

Dm     G            F       C     F       C
Do you know I won't let you down, let you down?
Rest your head when I come around, come around.
Do you know you can count on me, count on me?
Laugh out loud, I see what you see, what you see.
Do you know I won't let you down, let you down?
Rest your head when I come around, come around.
Do you know you can count on me, count on me?
Laugh out loud, I see what you see, what you see.
