[Verse 1]
A              A       
- When I first met you 
E                E7
- I didn't understand
       E                
What a naggin' bitchin' 
E           A         A
wo-oman can - do to a man
        A                A    
Well it - seems that the girl 
          D                 D
I married - ain't quite the same
       E                  E      
Well I thought I knew you better

thing that keeps me hangin' on
    A          A           
The man on the radio keeps 
D               D
singin' sad sad songs
          E7            
Like "The Only Time I'm 
E7                  A       A
Sober's When You're Gone"

       A                      
Well I have no need to travel 
E                E7
- anywhere's too far
         E                   
And they know me by my first

name at - all the local bars
I heard that a failin' love can 
D
- drive a man to drink
       E                      
Well I would have left you if

A                         
- Guess I'd better go now

The man on the radio keeps singin' 
sad sad songs
