VERSE: 

   G                              D(h)Dsus4(p)D(p)Dsus2 
   Night with its shattered teeth attempts to speak
             C(h)Cadd9(p)C(p)Cmaj7   Gsus2(h)G
   My pen is present but courage left via the sink
   G                               D(h)Dsus4(p)D(p)Dsus2 
   And I'm sorry I snuck up on you from behind
       C(h)Cadd9(p)C(p)Cmaj7   Gsus2(h)G    
   I'm sorry not all my love    letters did rhyme
           D(h)Dsus4(p)D         G
   And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins
         D(h)Dsus4(p)D         G
   And I swear to God it won't happen again
           D(h)Dsus4(p)D(p)Dsus2                         C(h)Cadd9(p)C(p)Cmaj7
   And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway
       D(h)Dsus4(p)D(p)Dsus2     G(p)Gsus2(h)G(p)Gsus2(h)G
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way

VERSE (SAME AS ABOVE; ONLY BASIC CHORDS SHOWN): 

   G               D
   And Romeo was a very nice man
            C                        G
   He said "Jewel, I don't think you quite understand" 
           G                   D
   And I'm sorry if you had to explain it like this
       C                            G
   I'm sorry I was a point you were destined to miss
           D                    G
   And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently
   D                         G
   Down in the hollow by the old olive tree
           D                                       C
   And I'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day 
       D                         G          
   Oh well, sometimes It be that way


CHORUS: 
             D  A            G   
     I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell
           D         A                 G
     This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air
            D             A       G            
     I was bound to find out that you didn't care
     D   A                         D(h)Dsus4(p)D(p)Dsus2  
     Oh well, sometimes it be that way

G(p)Gsus2(h)G(p)Gsus2(h)G


VERSE (SAME AS ABOVE): 

   G                      D
   And Aphrodite with her neon lamp
   C                           G
   Kissed Neptune they put her face on a stamp
                                     D
   And I'm sorry I used it to mail a letter to you
   C                              G
   I'm sorry I'm glue and the rest bounces off of you
        D                        G
   I'm sorry not even this jet's metal wings
   D                      G
   Could get across these simple things
             D                              C
   And I'm sorry if I ever sang your name in vain
      D                          G               (G)
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way


CHORUS (SAME AS ABOVE): 
             D  A            G   
     I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell
           D         A                 G
     This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air
            D             A             G
     I was bound to find out that you didn't care
              A                         D           G
     Said Oh well, sometimes it be that way

VERSE (SAME AS ABOVE): 
   G                                D
   And flame licks the air with its silver tongue
    C                         G
   Night has many hands but I have just one
                                    D
   And I'm sorry I walked in on you unexpectedly
        C                            G
   I'm sorry I didn't serve you both Camomile tea
           D                            G
   And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match
               D                                G
   That could start a fire big enough for your heart to catch
           D                                 C
   And I'm sorry if my swerve tempted you to sway
       D                         G              (G)
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way

     I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell

            D             A             G
     I was bound to find out that you didn't care
         A                         D
     Oh well, sometimes it be that way
         A                         D
     Oh well, sometimes it be that way
