Nobody's Wife

Words & Music:


(Transcribed by Edward Neve)


Intro & Verse Riff Tab:

         Em        C        Am    G    G/F#









I'm sorry for the times that I made you scream;

For the times that I killed your dreams;

For the times that I made your whole world rumble;

For the times that I made you cry;

For the times that I told you lies;

For the times that I watched and let you stumble.



         Em  C           Am  G  G/F#

It's too bad, but that's me.

            Em            C            Am  G  G/F#

What goes around comes around, you'll see.

            Am  D     G         C

That I can carry the burden of pain,

                    Am        D        G          C

'Cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane.

                  Am      D       G            C

And when I spread my wings to embrace him for life,

                    Am                    D        G        C

I'm suckin' out his love, 'cause I, I'll never be nobody's wife.


I'm sorry for the times that I didn't come home;

Left you lyin' in that bed alone;

Was flyin' high in the sky when you needed my shoulder.

You're like a stone hangin' round my neck, see.

Cut it loose before it breaks my back, see.

I've gotta say what I feel before I grow older.

I'm sorry but I ain't gonna change my ways.

You know I've tried but I'm still the same.

I've got to do it my own way.
