A7 B7 C7

Another year and I'm looking for her
Killing pain with more cheap booze
Just living a way with no more virtues
Everything is fuzzy and just a blur
You got to love the LA New Years blues..............
Yeah, you got to love the LA blues

A7 B7 C7

Another year that ended badly
Walking around in worn out shoes
In another Tin Pan Alley
I am lost, I stand accused
You got to love the LA New Years blues
Yeah, you got to love the LA blues


CM7 (2-3 strums DOWN) FMAJ7 (2-3 Strums UP)

She took it away on a Chicago train
Didn't know she'd could leave me this low
Millions of people and I'm alone in this pain
G AMaj7
Another failed love and nothing to show

Verse 2

Been a year since I started these blues
Another year I seem to choose to lose
All my dreams are dead so it seems
G AMaj7
Booze and sorrow just my constant theme

Verse 3

I remember days of being by the sea
Feeling the love and being easy and free
The stars don't burn as bright at night
G AMaj7
Since you've been gone, nothing is right
