Guess there are times when we all need to share a little pain
                           G                C/G G
And ironing out the rough spots
                                 C                         Dm C
Is the hardest part when memories remain
And it's times like these when we all need to hear the radio
`Cause from the lips of some old singer
We can share the troubles we already know

Turn them on, turn them on
Turn on those sad songs
When all hope is gone
                      Em   G        Dm          C  
Why don't you tune in and turn them on

They reach into your room
                       F              Bb/F  F
Just feel their gentle touch
When all hope is gone
Em  G      Dm      C  
Sad songs say so much

If someone else is suffering enough to write it down
When every single word makes sense
Then it's easier to have those songs around
The kick inside is in the line that finally gets to you
and it feels so good to hurt so bad
And suffer just enough to sing the blues


                     F    Bb/F
Sad songs, they say
   Dm              G    C G
Sad songs, they say
                        F      Bb/F F
Sad songs, they say
   Dm             G   C/G G9
Sad songs, they say so  much

                           G                              C  F C
When all hope is gone, sad songs say so much.
