					Too Tired To Sleep
Red Female Vox – Blue Male Vox – Purple Together
Am                            F     G
On a warm summers evening we decided to leave town
We chose a road bound for nowhere as the sun was going down
You were simply fooling round again, there’s times when I just know
Then you tuned the radio in to some distant messed up country show
Am G Am G Am G C D      Am G Am G Am G C D
Am                            F     G
You were singing all the verses wrong and changing all the lines
You’ve got a filty mind and a mouth to match,it freaks me out sometimes
Just a couple of fools in a parked up car and miles from anywhere
And then Kenny started singing the Gambler and we were there
Am G Am G Am G C D      Am G Am G Am G C D
Am                            F     G
We fell deep under his spell as his words just rolled along
We were riding on that train – I could smell the wheels just holding on
As you rolled me up a cigarette I could taste the Whiskeys kiss
And a burning in my throat and your touch upon my wrist
F                             C
Now we both know theres a secret to surviving
F                             C
Theres things to throw & certain things to keep
F                             C        C/B       Am
Maybe everyones a winner if you’d take this poor loser
G                             F     C
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
G                             F     C
Am G Am G Am G C D      Am G Am G Am G C D
Am                            F     G
So we sat there staring out the filthy windscreen at the darkness
And you took my hand and held it while the music drifted by
Something went and changed between us right that very moment,
With Kennys voice like velvet and something in my eye
Now we both know theres a secret to surviving
Theres things to throw & certain things to keep
Maybe everyones a winner if you’d take this poor loser
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
And as the night gets deathly quiet, we know the Gamblers getting ready
To give us both a lesson in where we’re going wrong
But you ruined things when you said that the song just kinda felt like
Old Kenny and the Gambler were about to get it on
Now we both know theres a secret to surviving
Theres things to throw & certain things to keep
Maybe everyones a winner if you’d take this poor loser
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
And hold me sweetheart - I’m too tired to sleep
