VERSE:

D                       Em7
    You’re banging your drum

                      C          G
    You blow your own trumpet

D                  Em7
    Your ship came in

                     C          G
    And your fanfare sunk it

D                Em7                        F       G
    The tide has turned, our love’s gone forever,   ever

    I stand on the shore

                          G        G/A
    As it floats down the river,   river


CHORUS:

D/F#       F6
I had such hopes

                   Bb           G G/A
I had such visions planned

    D/F#        F6
The frames were shot

                     Bb         G G/A
But now our future’s canned

A6                                         G9
    I had my hopes so high they fell right down

A6                                         G9
    I had my hopes so high they fell right down

VERSE:
I’m banging my head
You watch without malice
(You watch with no interest at all)
I bet all your friends
Compare this to “Dallas”
(I might as well talk to a brick wall)
So under the arm I feel the cold shoulder
So I’ll once again
Have to play the wild rover

CHORUS:

Do I need all this pressure

D/F# F6      Bb        G G/A
Do I bury my temper

    I had my hopes so high they fell right down
