Capo: 1 fret

_____Intro:
 
 G/D  C  (2 times)

_____Verse: 1

G/D                    C        G      C
 When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights
     G/B                  F/A            C
 The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
 F                            G
 Prima donna lord you really should have been there
 F                         G               C
 Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
          Cm                                 A
 And it's one more beer  and I don't hear you anymore
          C
 We've all gone crazy lately
    A/C#                                 G/D                D7
 My friends out there rollin' round the basement floor. (Ooh______)

_____Chorus:

C                     G/B          Am7                 G/B
 And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear (sugar bear___)
C                    G/B         Am7
 You almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear
     G/B   C                 G/B
 You nearly had me roped and tied
 C            A7/C#
 Alter bound, hypnotized,
         G/D
 Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          A/C#
 You're a butterfly
     C
 And butterflies are free to fly
 A7/C#    G/D        B  C  
 Fly away, high away, bye bye (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
 G/B  Am7  G  F

_____Intro:

 G/D  C  (2 times)

_____Verse: 2

G/D                   C        G   C
 I never realized the passing hours of evening showers,
   G/B               F/A            C
 A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
     F                          G
 I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
 F                       G             C
 Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
      Cm
 It's four o'clock in the morning
          A
 Damn it! Listen to me good
     C
 I'm sleeping with myself tonight
 A/C#                                 G/D             D7
 Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive, Oh________

_____Chorus:

C                     G/B          Am7                             G/B
 And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear (sugar bear, sugar bear___)
C                    G/B         Am7
 You almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear
     G/B   C                 G/B
 You nearly had me rope d and tied
 C            A7/C#
 Altar-bound, hypnotized,
         G/D
 Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          A/C#
 You're a butterfly
     C
 And butterflies are free to fly
 A7/C#    G/D        B  C  
 Fly away, high away, bye bye
 G/B  Am7  G  F

_____Intro:

 G/D  C  (2 times)

_____Bridge:

A7                                       G/B  
 And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
 Em/B
 Clinging to your stocks and bonds
             C/G
 Paying your H.P. demands forever
Am7                                    G/B
 They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Em/B                        C/G
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em/B                        C/G
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em/B
 Someone saved my life tonight
    C/G                                      A7
 So save your strength and run the field you play alone

_____Chorus:

C                     G/B          Am7                             G/B
 And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear (sugar bear, sugar bear___)
C                    G/B         Am7
 You almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear
     G/B   C                 G/B
 You nearly had me roped and tied
 C            A7/C#
 Alter-bound, hypnotized,
         G/D
 Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          A/C#
 You're a butterfly
     C
 And butterflies are free to fly
 A7/C#    G/D        B  C  
 Fly away, high away, bye bye
 G/B  Am7  G  F
