G 
There is a

There is a girl I used to

Or lend me a 20 and

D 
I’ve been in this place many times b
G 
efore
 
 
D 
with my baby’s things among my shoes and strings and
G 
clothes
 
but just
A 
because I’m  
G 
here don’t mean I  
D 
can’t run out that  
G 
door
 
 
D 
ain’t that what those
G 
runnin’ shoes are
D 
for.
 
 
D 
Baby likes to sleep on floor board
G 
 
bed.
 
 
D 
Just to keep the peace well I join her  
G 
there.

She might say to
G 
me a better  
D 
man I can’t  
G 
recall
 
 
D 
what I think she
G 
sees ain’t me at

Sometimes I Just Have To Say Your Name

Chords and lyrics for Sometimes I Just Have To Say Your Name by Del Amitri

 
 
D 
Em7  
F#m7 
 
A 
 
With the  
D 
sweet drip of every raindrop
F#m7 
Time brings you closer to me
 
And with  
D 
each new sign at every train-stop
 
A
F#m7 
nother hour without you is consigned to h
D 
istory
F#m7 
A 
 
And with  
D 
each tick of my alarm clock
 
I get  
F#m7 
crazy for the days to get to you
 
When I can  
D 
hold you and kiss you and have you
 
Instead of  
F#m7 
staring at some photo like a fool
 
But as  
G 
day turns to night there’s this hopelessness to fight
 
When I  
G 
think that I might not make it t
A 
hro
D/A 
ugh
A7 
 
But honey  
D 
sometimes I just  
G 
have to say your  
D 
name
 
To hear it  
G 
hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
 
And sometimes when I’m blue, I  
G 
know just what to do
 
To  
A 
keep the blues at bay you know I  
G 
only have to  
A 
say your  
D 
name
 
So this  
D 
morning I picked up the paper
 
In the  
F#m7 
useless descent of the rain
 
While  
D 
partners in heartbreak the whole world over
F#m7 
Lie and cheat just the same
 
And the  
D 
headlines proclaim everything has changed
F#m7 
Love can’t save you now
 
As each  
D 
little motion of my writswatch
F#m7 
Holds up my faith somehow
 
But as  
G 
day turns to night there’s this hopelessness to fight
 
When I  
G 
think that I might not make it t
A 
hro
D/A 
ugh
A7 
 
But honey  
D 
sometimes I just  
G 
have to say your  
D 
name
 
To hear it  
G 
hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
 
And sometimes when I’m blue, I  
G 
know just what to do
 
To  
A 
keep the blues at bay you know I  
G 
only have to say your  
A 
name
D 
A 
 
When I’ve  
G 
used up all my  
D 
patience
 
When your  
G 
letters have been read twenty times  
D 
through
 
I can  
F#m7 
drink all the wine in th
G 
is place of mine
 
But it ain’t no replacement, it  
A 
ain’t no replacement for
 
‘Cause honey  
D 
sometimes I just have to  
G 
say your  
D 
name
 
To hear it  
G 
hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
 
And sometimes when I’m blue, I  
G 
know just what to do
 
To  
A 
keep the blues at bay you (know I only have to say)
 
You know I only have to  
A 
say your  
D 
name…
