I Don’t Want to Fight About it Anymore

[C] I coulda been a writer
Or a poet I know for sure
I can [G] write all night, into the day
[C] If I wanted to

But now I sit
Just me and a ciggarette
Makin’ love to the night
And I don’t know why

[chorus]
I’d [G] rather be with someone
who [C] makes me feel at peace
who’ll [G] grab me and hold me
And [C] tell me it’s ok
A [G] woman who’ll be there
When [C] I come home too late
And [D] I don’t want to fight
a[G]bout it anymore

I thought I found a friend
Lonely men always do
We search far and wide
Turn our hearts inside out for you

Can’t you see what I’m tryin’ to say
We howl at the moon
But we don’t mean it
We’d rather come home to you (and we do)

[chorus]

Solitary Man

C – Am – F – G

I got my first allergy
Somethin’ bad happened to me
I think it’s somethin’ you’ll understand

Makin’ dinner for one
Lord knows it ain’t no fun
Drinkin’ my beer all alone

[chorus]
[F] I never thought I’d [G] see
The [C] day where I would [Am] be
[F] I’m doin’ the best I [G] can
As a solitary [C] man

Footsteps sound so loud
When you’re the only one around
And the fridge just won’t quit

Thunderstorms are much less fun
When you’re the only one
Countin’ down the time

[chorus]

I got a garbage can
I got pots and pans
One of everything

I got a ceiling fan
for a solitary man
None of which I need

[chorus] (repeat last line)
