verse 1:  

A5                                F5   
We had broken up for good just an hour before 
  
    G5              A5    
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh  

A5                                    F5   
Now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing 'cross the floor  

  G5                 A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

(intro fill) 
A5                                         F5   
And then the band slowed the tempo when the music took you down  

   G5                A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

A5                                F5   
It was the same old song with the melancholy sound 

  G5                 A5     
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh  

Fill before Chorus

|-0-0--3-3--1-1--------| 
Chorus: 

              C5                   F5   
They don't write 'em like that anymore.           (here u play the chord twice) 

C5          F5                   C5                 G5(strum out) 
              They just don't write 'em like that anymore  

verse 2: 

A5                              F5   
We'd been living together for a million years, 

    G5               A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

A5                                    F5   
But now it feels so strange out in the atmospheres 

    G5               A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

(intro fill) 
A5                               F5   
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know 

    G5               A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

A5                                           F5   
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow. 

    G5               (fill berfore Chorus) 
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

|-0-0------------------|

|-2-2--4-4--2-2--------| 
|-2-2--5-5--3-3--------| 
|-0-0--5-5--3-3--------| 
|-0-0--3-3--1-1--------| 

Chorus: 
               
C5                   F5   
They don't write 'em like that anymore.           (here u play the chord twice) 

C5          F5                   C5                G5(strum out)   
              They just don't write 'em like that anymore  

(theres a vocal solo here and the lead guitar plays intro and the rythm guitar play chord pattern) 

verse 3: 

A5                                   F5   
Now I'm winding up staring at an empty glass 

    G5               A5   
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

(no verse fill) 
C5                                   F5   
Cause it's so easy to say that you'll forget your past 

    G5               (Fill before Chorus) 
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh 

Chorus    then.... 

F5   
They just don't! 

C5   
No they don't! 

F5   
No they Don't!! 

C5   
Uh Uh 

then theres the same Chorus pattern to the end.
