																				Intro
D A Bm x4


D   A       Bm  G                              A

18 karat gold wouldn't fill the hole
        D                      A          Bm                  
                                                A

The bleeding hole in her heart, that's made from cicumstances at home
               D                A                Bm 
                                        A

Because they kept pulling her hair, and so it choked her words
D     A                      Bm    G                 
                      A

She don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
                   D             A   Bm
And she's home
D   A   Bm x2
G   A




    


                  D   A       Bm  G                  
                A

I thought 18 karat gold would save a lonely soul
       D     A                      Bm    G          
                             A

But she don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
            D                A                Bm  G  
                                 A

Cause they kept pulling her hair, wouldn't leave her alone
           D                   A             Bm   G  
                          A

But if only I could read her mind and release that stone


           D                                          A       
                                 Bm
In her heart where the sadness grows, I'd operate with this knife
                  D                     A   Em                
                 Bm
And cut a big fat giant hole, to fill with gold and light


                         F                       Am      Dm
But there's an endless battle to be won
                              F                       Am         Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
                     F                                Am               
      Dm
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
F                         Am                      D        
   Bm
So you scream about it in the night


                    D          A      Bm
Oh, in the night ...
            D          A      Bm
In the night ...
                   D          A      Bm   G   A

Oh, in the night ...


       D   A       Bm  G                         A

My 18 karat gold, it fills a dirty hole
                D                   A          Bm             
                              G                                                
  A

A dirty bleeding hole in my heart, you people think it's made from circumstances at home
                               D                        A              
   Bm                 G                                               
    A

Well if someone ever should be pulling your hair, then I guess you should leave them alone
                         D                   A              
 G                               A

And now you want me to read your mind and release that stone


                                   D                                          
                            Em                                  Bm
That stone in your heart where the sadness grows. You know I, I'd operate with this knife
                  D                      A                 Em 
                  Bm
And cut a big fat giant hole, to fill with gold and light


           F                            Am               Dm
But there's an endless battle to be won
                              F                       Am         Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
                     F                                Am               
      Dm
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
         F                         Am                      Dm
And so you scream about it in the night


   Dm                         Am               Dm
There's an endless battle to be won
                              F                       Am         Dm
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
F                                  Am                      Dm
You won't have the strength to carry on
F                         Am                      D        
   Bm
So you scream about it in the night

                    D          A      Bm
Oh, In the night ...
            D          A      Bm
In the night ...
            D          A      Bm
In the night ...

D   A   Bm  ...
