Do Unto Others

Intro: (db)

I don't know (db) why i cannot (ab/c) reach you
I've (bbm7) tried and tried and still
(gbadd9) every time it kills me
I don't know (db) why i cannot (ab/c) reach you
You've (bbm7) written on the back of your
(gbadd9) motorcycle jacket

(db) do unto others as the high- (ab) way does to you
(bbm7) tell me what that (gbadd9) means
Are you (db/ab) talking about freedom
Are you (ab) talking about kindness
Or just (gbadd9) trying to make me lonely
(gbadd9) to make me lonely (db dbsus) (db)

I don't know (db) why i still don't (ab/c) know you
After (bbm7) all this time together
I (gbadd9) thought i'd know you better
I don't know (db) why i still don't (ab/c) know you
(bbm7) you write me letters but
They (gbadd9) don't help at all

I (db) do wish you'd tell me why you (ab) do what you do
But you (bbm7) just tell me what you (gbadd9) see
Are you (db/ab) trying to find a home somewhere
(ab) trying to say that you don't care
Or just (gbadd9) trying to make me lonely
(gbadd9) to make me lonely

Instrumental solo:
(bbm7) (gbadd9) (db) (ab) (bbm7) (gbadd9) (db) (ab)

I don't know (db) why i cannot (ab/c) have you
You (bbm7) say you're stuck, you can't get back
(gbadd9) with your van up on a jack
I remind (bbm7) you about the spare in back
You say (gbadd9) yeah, but two tires are flat
I (db) know i cannot (ab/c) have you
(bbm7) hoo (gbadd9) hoo

So (db) do unto others as the high- (ab) way does to you
(bbm7) come on, set me (gbadd9) free
I'm not (db/ab) talking about tomorrow
I'm not (ab) talking anymore
I'm just (gbadd9) tired of waking up lonely
(gbadd9) of waking up lonely
(gbadd9) of waking up lonely
(gbadd9) (gbadd9) (gbadd9)

Outro (repeat w/instrumental ad lib and fade):
(db) (ab/c) (bbm7) (gbadd9) (db) (ab/c) (bbm7) (gbadd9)
