I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

Music by Elton John & Davey Johnstone
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Too Low for Zero

C  Em  F 

Don't wish it away
        Em                 F          C F C F C F
Don't look at it like it's forever
C                          G
Between you and me
                         Bm        F                      C F C F C F
I could honestly say that things can only get better
      C                G     B7                             Em  F/D  C
And while I'm away bust out the demons inside
                         C                                 G
And it won't be long before you and me run
                              Am       F              G  A7   G/B
To the place in our hearts where we hide

         C                               G/B          F
And I guess that's why they call it the blues
         /e  /d  C                      G                       F
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
C                   G  
Laughing like children
Living like lovers
C/E             F                              D/F#
Rolling like thunder, under the covers
        F                              F/G          C        
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second 
Without hesitation, never forget I'm your man
Wait on me girl, cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself
