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

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

C  G       F            Am         G
My friend Kate, you are sad and beautiful
        C   G F            Am       G
And the way I am has never been too good for us
         Dm            G           F            C
Cause I'm too blind to hear and I'm too deaf to see
      Am           G              F             C
But I still have a voice that can call out your name
       Am          G          F            C
with a gut full of beer and a head full of pain
      Am          G           F       C
I can lie in your arms and be lovers again
          Am          G          F           C
and thank God Tuesday morning is just hours away
      Am          G          F           C
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?
Dm         G           F     C      F     C
 Rest your head when I come around, come around
Dm      G            F        C   F        C
 Do you know you can count on me, count on me?
Dm         G           F        C    F        C
 Laugh out loud, I see what you see, what you see
Dm      G            F       C     F       C
 Do you know I won't let you down, let you down?
Dm         G           F     C      F     C
 Rest your head when I come around, come around.
Dm      G            F        C   F        C
 Do you know you can count on me, count on me?
Dm         G           F        C    F        C    F  C  F  C
 Laugh out loud, I see what you see, what you see.
