         G (320003@1)          D (xx0232@1)        CYou (x32010@1)just hand me that Same old refrain

And I'm falling---

I wish I could please you tonight
But my medicine just won't come right
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
        Am (x02210@1)     GAnd (320003@1)I'm falling---

D (xx0232@1)      AToo (x02220@1)many steps to take
C#m (x13321@4)    G#mToo (133111@4)many spells to break
Bm (x24432@1)     C# (x43121@1)             F#mToo (244222@1)many nights awake and no one else
D (xx0232@1)               AThis (x02220@1)grindstone's wearing me
C#m (x13321@4)          G#mYour (133111@4)claws are tearing me
C#m (x13321@4)        BDon't (x2444x@1)use me endlessly
     A (x02220@1) Em (022000@1)  Bm (x24432@1)D (xx0232@1)       AIt's (x02220@1)too long, Too long to myself

Where's the justice, and where's the sense
When all the pain's on my side of the fence
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling---
