(G)I had plenty of keys on my key ring
A beautiful home I had every(D)thing
With a lovinâ (C)wife and a car to (G)drive
I came home from work (D)every day at five

(G)And one by one I started losinâ them keys
My darling wife I just couldnât (D)please
My boss got ©on my nerves one (G)day
I knew that I (D)was on my way

I lost my (C)wife, I lost my (G)home
Quit my (D)job, and set out a(G)lone
With just one (C)key on my key (G)chain
Iâm gonna (D)start all over a(G)gain

(G)She finally decided we just couldnât be
She wanted things I just couldnât (D)see
She said, Iâm (C)tired of waiting a(G)roundä
She took the last (D)train out of town

Repeat chorus

(G)Well the bankers came and took the key to my home
Just one key left from all I ever (D)owned
Iâm turning that (C)key lettinâ out the (G)clutch
I never did like this (D)town that much

Repeat chorus
