So these are the ropes, The tricks of the trade,
. . . Dm7
The rules of the road.

. . . . . . G7
You're one of those dopes For whom they were made,
. . . . C . . . . . . . . . . . C9
The rules of the road.

. . . . F . . . . . . . . . . . . . Fm6
You follow that kiss and recklessly miss
  . .C . . . . . . . . . . . C9
A bend in the road,
. . . . G9 . . . . . . . . G7
Then suddenly this --
. . . .C9 . . . . . . . . . Ab.G
The end of the road.

. . . C
So love is a hoax,  A glittering string
. . Dm7
Of little white lies.

. . . .G7
But these are the jokes,  And what if they bring
. . . . C . . . . . . . . . . . C9.B9.Bb9
The tears to your eyes?

. . . . . F . . . . . . . . . . . . Fm6
Well, love often shows a funny return.
. . . Bb6f . . . . . . . . . . . .A47 . . . .  A7
The brighter it glows, the longer you burn.
. . . . Bbjf . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A47 . . . A7
And Lord only knows love has little concern
. . . . . . Bb6f . . . . . A47 . A7
For the fools of the road.
