B7             Em   B7               Em
My ranshackled mind searched out old Jerome
C                  G       Am             D
I said my house is falling it use to be a home he
B7              Em   B7                  Em
Said I told you once I'll tell it to you twice
C                    G
She's got to quit or quench her thirst
         Am          D
For that poison paradise
                    G           B7    Em
She's got to choose never again or forever
C                   G                 B7         Em
She's got to let it break at the ends or say forever
C             G
But I feel so dark inside
 B7       B7              Am       D
That I'm clinging to the smallest light
                G    C     Cm         G    D
And I can't hang on  and I can't hang on
       B7             Em
It was harvest at the Hazeltown farm
    B7                      Em
And in the fields we'd meet meet
C                G               Am                 D
I could feel the pods I know the peas inside were sweet
B7                    Em      B7                   Em
But soon I saw her deceptions for the little lies they were
C                G              Am            D
And I was making all my plans depended  upon  her
                    G           B7    Em
She's got to choose never again or forever
C                   G                 B7         Em
She's got to let it break at the ends or say forever
C             G
But I feel so dark inside
 B7       B7              Am       D
That I'm clinging to the smallest light
                G    C     Cm         G
And I can't hang on  and I can't hang on
F       G                   C            Am
I don't know what draws the bee into the flower
F             G        C    Am
But she's the blackest rose
F        G             C               Am
I got a hard time just seeing thru the clouds
                       D
That hang on her wherever she goes
B7         Em   B7                  Em
Poison paradise served up with the twist
C              G
I held it in a bottle
            Am                      D
It's right there in the ingredents list
B7              Em    B7              Em
I can't talk anymore and I can't walk away
C              G
I swore my ulitimatum
      Am                 D
And I fear that it's too late
                    G           B7    Em
She's got to choose never again or forever
C                   G                 B7         Em
She's got to let it break at the ends or say forever
C             G
But I feel so dark inside
 B7       B7              Am       D
That I'm clinging to the smallest light
                G    C     Cm         G    D
And I can't hang on  and I can't hang on
