THE DRUGS DONT WORK TAB Verve, The lyrics

Song: The drugs don't work (Radio Edit)


Group: The Verve
Album: Urban Hymns
This is the second single of the Verve's album Urban Hymns. The song is really easy
to play. Nice
chord progression. The Verve have been around
since 1989 but all of a sudden they have become commercially popular.
Yet their music has always stayed quite similar and their classic work
is often their oldest stuff. So if you like this and their newer music
try out old music like "a northen soul" and "a storm in heaven".
Chords used:
C alternates between X32013 and X32003 (uses second version to got to Am)
Am alternates between X02210 and X02200 (uses second version to got to Em)
Em 022000
F (Barre chord) 133211
G 320033
NB C somtimes drops from X32013 to 30013 (But you can figure out where!)

(Note "drug make ME worse" - pre-commercial/sanitized version)
All this talk of growin' old
is gettin' me down my love
like a cat in a bag
waiting to drown
I know I'm coming down
and I hope you're thinking of me
as you lay down inside
now the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
but I know I'll see your face again
cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
and baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm with you
But I know I'm on a losing streak
I passed down my old street
and if you wanna stop
then give me a shout
and I'll come running down
you know I will
But the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
and I know I'll see your face again
cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
Just like you said
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you
Just like you said
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you
but if you wanna show
then just let me know
and I'll sing in your ear again
but the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
but I know I'll see your face again
like a cat in a bag
waiting to drown
I know I'm coming down
now the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
and I know I'll see your face again
