             Em            F

I've got the worried blues,

                 Em

And I don't know what to do.

F                 D

It seems my dreams

                       G

Have been tarnished by events.

                  G

And I think of you

                              F

and I hope that we aren't done.

Em

You're the one I need

D                          G

To get me through a lonely lifetime.

                  G

Some of the things they said

                               F

Well, they might have been true

Em                D                G

But I really don't appreciate it so much.

(Strike the G chord like 7 or 8 times at the end)

C                                   Em

Just yesterday I had so much to say.

F                                   D

Seemed like people wanted to listen.

                             Em                 G2

But now today nobody wants to have a thing to do with me~~~.

(Strike G2 chord throughout the "me.")

              G

And I'm so sad.

                              F

Everything has turned out bad.

Em

I tried so hard,

D                     G

But goofed up somehow.

                       G

I just want you to know

                         F

I didn't mean no harm on purpose.

D                              Em

But they turned it into a circus

               G

Just to put me down

                     G

But I'm still around.

                               F

Maybe I'll have another chance.

D                Em

To turn the tables

                        G

And be a hero in the end

(Strike the G chord like 7 or 8 times at the end)

C                                   Em

Just yesterday I had so much to say.

F                                   D

Seemed like people wanted to listen.

                             Em                 G2

But now today nobody wants to have a thing to do with me~~~.

(Strike G2 chord throughout the "me.")

Em

And so I'm singin'

               F

The 1989 blues.

Em                         D                       

But I'm lookin' forward to:

                           G

A better future for me and you.

Em

And now comes,

                     F

The end of this song.

Em                                            D

Some of the things I did might have been wrong

                                      G    Em

But it's only because I was out of my mind.

              G2 F G

The 1989 Blues
