Intro:
N.C               A Em
Every mornin' finds me moanin'
N.C              A Em
Life's a losing gamble to me
N.C              A Em
Cause of all the trouble I see

Everybody knows I'm moanin'

Every evenin' finds me moanin'

I'm alone and I'm crying the blues
N.C              A Em
I'm so tired of paying my dues
N.C             A Em
Everybody knows I'm moanin'
