I Wish Somebody Would Built A Bridge

	  		verse 1: 

Ab                                                     F#        
Munching on a ham and cheese sando in the morning on Friday 
                            Fm 
Cruising down the Pacific Highway 
                       Eb 
Thinking 'bout the day ahead 

Ab                                              F# 
I paid the rent cheque, got my registration and phone bill 
                                    Fm 
If those two don't overthrow me the dogs will 
                                     Eb 
But heck at least I know the taste of bread 


Ab                                                 F# 
Why do I seem to spend my whole damn life chasing paper? 
                                        Fm 
I'm like an actor turned singer turned waiter 
                                       Eb 
I'll wait around until I meet with my maker 

Then I'll sign up for AA or something 


Ab                                                    F# 
I just wish there was some other way to get myself somewhere 
                                             Fm 
This little strip of earth and all that I've done there 
                                    Bbm 
I'm like a bull-ant on the leg of a sunchair 
          Eb 
Under a magnifying glass

verse 2: Ab F# I take a phonecall on the mobile while I'm checking the meter Fm One sec I need to turn up that little speaker Eb It's getting noisy in this little town Ab F# We're like America we love to make a ho-har out of jack shit Fm I never ever really seemed to fit Eb But now I'm stuck so deep in all of this Ab F# Come to think of it I might as well be travelling backwards Fm It's been an hour and I'm only in Chatswood Eb I hate the way that I'm becoming a product Go pick me up for $24.95 Ab F# I'm on sale and it's retail in the world of deception Fm You can treat a man if he can't get erections Bbm Eb Is there a pill for my lack of direction? Thanks mate, I'll have a pack of those

Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm wasting my time Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm losing my mind

verse 3: Ab F# It's all good I got a broom and a cheap persian rug now Fm I can sweep the whole thing outta my sight now Eb Outta sight, outta mind Ab F# I'll keep on going until I'm pushing 30 or 40 Fm And as long as I don't do something naughty Eb I love my wife, what a life Ab F# She comes home to find me spread on the floor from blood poisoning Fm I popped a whole lot of pills and I'm shaking Eb And there's a needle sticking out of my arm, I ain't faking I'm zoning in I'm zoning out Ab F# You wanna help me, don't call me an ambulance honey Fm Just get a silver service cab this is funny Bbm Eb Just one passenger please, going up my own ass You take credit card? Fuck this!

Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm wasting my time Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm losing my mind Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm wasting my time... I'm wasting my life Ab C Fm I wish somebody would build a bridge E Ab So I can get over myself C Fm C# Eb On my own I'm losing my mind
