E
Mary Jo, living alone
B
Drinking tea, on her own
    A                             E
She wants...I don't know what you want

E
Mary Jo, living alone
B
Drinking gin the telly's on
    A
She Wants

                    E            F#m
The night to follow day and back again
                    G#m
She doesn't want to sleep
               A                E
Well who could blame her if she wants?
                    F#m          G#m
The night to follow day and back again
                    B
She doesn't want to sleep
               A                 B
Well who could blame her, if she sleeps?
               A                 B
Well who could blame her, if she sleeps?
               A                   E
Well who could blame her, if she's sleeping?

E
Mary Jo, back with yourself
    B                                     A
For company, keep telling yourself you're young
                   E
And it will happen soon

E
Mary Jo, no one can guess
     B
What you've been through
                       A
Now you've got love to burn

                    E                  F#m
It's someone else's turn to go through Hell
                     G#m    A
Now you can see them come from fifty yards
             E
Yeah you can tell
                    F#m            G#m
It's someone else's turn to take a fall
                    B                A
And now you are the one who's strong enough to help them
    B                A
The one who's strong enough to help them
    B                A                   E
The one who's strong enough to help them all

C#m
Mary Jo, you're looking thin
B
You're reading a book, "The State I Am In"
    A                   E
But oh, it doesn't help at all

C#m
What you want is a cigarette
      B                              A
And a thespian with a caravanette in Hull

                   E            F#m
your life is never dull in your dreams
               G#m            A                 E
A pity that it never seems to work the way you see it
                   F#m          G#m
Your life is never dull in your head
                B              A
A sorry tale of action and the men you left for
B              A
Women, and the men you left for
B                 A                E
Intrigue, and the men you left for dead
