ABBA - If It Wasn't For The Nights: chords

  A     D/A   A            D/A
I got appointments, work I have to do
Bm/F#   F#    Bm   Bm/A           E
Keeping me so busy all the day through
                         A                       F#m
They're the things that keep me from thinking of you
Bm         A
Ohhh baby, I miss you so
    D
I know I'm never gonna make it
E          D/A  A            D/A
Oh, I'm so restless, I don't care what I say
Bm/A  F#      Bm     Bm/A         E
And I lose my temper ten times a day
                 A                             F#m
Still it's even worse when the night's on its way
      Bm          D
It's bad, oh, so bad

Chorus:
D                    Bm7                          D/A
Somehow I'd be doing alright if it wasn't for the nights
        A              D/A                A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
D                        Bm7                        D/A
I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
        A              D/A                A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
D                        Bm7              E
How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
Bm7                    D/E
Sitting here alone and staring at the wall
D                  Bm7                        D/A
Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
      A             D/A                A
(Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
D                    Bm7                          D/A
Somehow I'd be doing alright if it wasn't for the nights
       A              D/A                 A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

No one to turn to, you know how it is
I was not prepared for something like this
Now I see them clearly, the things that I miss
Oh, baby, I feel so bad, I know I'm never gonna make it
I got my business to help me through the day
People I must write to, bills I must pay
But everything's so different when night's on its way
It's bad, oh, so bad

Chorus

D     Bm7            D/A
If it wasn't for the nights
       A              D/A                 A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
D     Bm7            D/A
If it wasn't for the nights
       A              D/A                 A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
D                  Bm7                        D/A
Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
      A             D/A                A
(Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
D                          Bm7                         D/A
Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
       A              D/A                 A
(If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it) - x2
