Another Nail in My Heart (Difford/Tilbrook)
INTRO: N.C.



B                   F#/A#         F#m

The case is pulled from under the bed

                                                   E      G# A A#dim B

She made a call to a sympathetic friend and made arrangements

                     F#/A#            F#m

The door was closed, there was a note



I couldn't be bothered

                           E    G#  A A#dim G#/C

Maybe I'll choke no more engagements

      C#m                        A

With "where have you been"'s and faraway frowns

E                    B

Trying to be good by not being round





REFRAIN 1:



   E                     B

So here in the bar the piano man's found

        A                 E

Another nail for my heart

                          B

And here in the bar the piano man's found

        A            B    C#m C#m/B

Another nail for my heart





AD LIB: B F#/A# F#m E G# A A#dim

        B F#/A# F#m E G# A A#dim G#/C



       C#m                 A

That's stupid old bug that kills only love

  E                   B

I want to be good, is that not enough?





REFRAIN 2:



     E                     B

So play me the song that makes it so tough

        A                 E

Another nail for my heart

     E                     B

Then play me the song that makes it so tough

        A            B    C#m C#m/B B


Another nail for my heart



                     F#/A#           F#m

I had excuses, those little boy lies

                                                  E      G# A A#dim B

That she computed by watching my eyes and told me firmly

                             F#/A#            F#m

She couldn't stand that, I'm bad on her heart



She dropped her makeup and I found the bar

      E        G# A A#dim G#/C

It concerns me

     C#m                 A

I've had a bad time, now love is resigned

     E                       B

I've been such a fool, I've loved and goodbyed





   E                     B

So here in the bar the piano man's found

        A                 E

Another nail for my heart

                          B

And here in the bar the piano man's found

        A                 E

Another nail for my heart

                          B

And here in the bar the piano man's found

        A                 C#m

Another nail for my heart

    E                     B

And here in the bar the piano man's found

        A                 C#m

Another nail for my heart
