TITLE: Touch of Grey
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]

Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint by number morning sky
Looks so phony

/ A EA / D GD / E EA / D - /

Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains, I don't care 'cause
It's all right

I will get by (3x)
I will survive

/ E A D - / / E A GD E / D - E -  /

I see you've got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Guess I get the gist of it, but
It's all right

Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining's got a
Touch of grey


It's a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the C's
The ABC's we all must face
Try to keep a little grace

/ Bm B E - / / F#m C#7 B7 E / A7 D E - /


It's a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC's we all think of
Try to leave a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears, but
It's all right

Cow is giving kerosene
Kid can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene, but
It's all right


The shoe is on the hand it fits
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit, cause
It's all right

Oh well, a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say and
It's all right


We will get by, we will get by
We will get by, we will survive
