Billy Idol - Whiskey And Pills: chords

Em
The sun you know it rots my brain
The way I walk is with a cane
The wind it blows it takes me in
And times it turns it makes me thin
My life is going down the drain
My wife you know she went insane
My kids are messed up in the brain
But when I’m high I feel no shame

Chorus:
  D           A           E
When my mind won’t hold still
  D              A          E
When I feel the sickening chills
  D               A
When I feel I’ve had my fill
    C              E
And every voice I hear is shrill
   G              B             E
I calm myself with whiskey and pills
   G              B             E
I calm myself with whiskey and pills

The people I know
Their number’s changed
Their view of me is rearranged
The way I see they’re really strange
I’ve got no reason to play their games, yeah
They look at me with eyes a stare
I look at them but I don’t care
I tell them all, what’s fair is fair
And here and there and everywhere

Chorus:
When my mind won’t hold still
When I feel the sickly chills
When I feel I’ve had my fill
And every voice I hear is shrill
I call upon my friends
Whiskey and pills
I call upon my friends
Whiskey and pills
Ooh, ooh, whiskey and pills

Em
When you see me
I’m a-roaming around
My face hits the pavement
Yes I’m on the ground
Turn me around, see if I’m okay
Check out this smile
That’s on my face

I never thought I was gonna die
Until I stared into God’s eyes
He said to me “well, come on son
Better shape up boy, your days are done”
Up my mind I got the chills
Even though he talked with skill
Of the voice I heard the shrill
It was a sound I had to kill
I turned around and grabbed
The whiskey and pills

Can’t say goodbye to
Whiskey and pills
I call upon my friends
Whiskey and pills

I calm myself with
Whiskey and pills
