Chorus

EThe big light came through my window and it Aopened up my eyelids And it Bsnapped them up like roller blinds and Etold me things that I did I can't Eface another day and night of Agood ideas and complications And I'm Bthankful I didn't open another bottle of inspiration
Nifty James Burton lick at end of chorus
A--2---4--5--6--|-2---4--5--6--|-2---4--5--6--|--6\4--2----------|
E---------------|--------------|--------------|----------3b4--0--|
When the hangover this morning had a personality And I cast my shattered mind over selected memories I didn't even touch the light switch so I knew I'd never see The Haggard face that would be staring back at me

Chorus

Well I had a little feeling to have a big time And I woke to alarm bells like a big church chime I had to face the who am I and who is she what did I do But worst of all I had to face the big light

Chorus

Well it's Efine to go out and Ahave a big night But sooner or Blater you've got to face the big Elight
