The room's                  full         and we're 
    dancing                 slow
    The band is playing an  old country tune
And the cowboys will be bringing their ladies home soon

CHORUS:

                     C   CMaj9         Am         G  
And I don't want to hear       no more sad songs
C        CMaj9    Am
   Don't know no happy ones no more
F                    G
  The world's full of broken hearts
                          (Am)              F

  I'm  not   pretending
F             G              C       CMaj9   Am    ("riff")
  Is it asking too much for just one happy ending?
F            G           (Intro pattern)
  Tonight I need a happy ending

    Outside the night is   still
And the moon           is hanging low
Tomorrow can conquer with its tyrrany of noise
But tonight, I'm          taking a stand

REPEAT CHORUS: All the same as before except last line...  

F            G             Am
  Tonight I need a happy ending

Bridge:

Am          C            Am       C
So hold me tight, yeah, hold me, dear
Am          C     G                  G
  Whisper quietly so my heart can't hear
         C        G         C        G
No more sad songs, no more sad songs

So hold                     me  tight
And pray this  song  never  ends
Don't make me lonely,         don't make me blue
Don't say goodbye,just say that you want a happy ending too

LAST CHORUS:

                     C   CMaj9         Am         G  
And I don't want to hear       no more sad songs

   Don't know no happy ones no more
