E F Living life for a mental affair and

D E giving up the one who does care

E F May seem like the right thing to do but

D C D B C I say you're bound to sing the

E F# x 4 blues.

 

B C I once had a girl, and I was her world,

A B she was my heaven until it unfurled.

B C Another's eyes came into my mind and

A G A F# G I began to treat my baby un-

E riff kind.

 

Your eyes are wider than hers and

your smile is a weak man's curse.

I need to you to feed my head 'cause

right now my baby is dead.

 

All of my time was crime in disguise

laying with my new lover's eyes.

Dreaming of holding her tight,

never seeing that I was losing sight.

 

D C In my mental affair I can go any-

E F# x2 where.

D C Always alone and my baby is the

E F# x2 fare.

D C In my mental affair I can go any-

E F# x2 where.

D C Always alone 'cause my baby she's not

B here.

B C G A F#

G A F# G

E riff

 

One day I woke up late, I

reached for my baby, but I grabbed my fate.

She had felt me toss in the night.

She knew my head was not right.

 

You'll never know what a good thing you had

'til it's all gone, then you'll feel bad.

Then you'll wallow in a mental affair with

your baby and she's no longer here.
