Couldn't get it right

Song Author Climax Blues Band Lyrics by: Climax Blues Band Performer: Climax Blues Band Submitted by: gilsi
[Bm]    [Bm]    
[Bm] Time was drift - in', this rock had got to roll, [A]    [G]    
So I hit the road, and made my [Bm]getaway, [D]    [C#m7]    
[Bm] Restless feel - in' ...really gotta hold, [A]    [G]    
I started searching for a [E]better way!

And I [D]kept on looking for a [A]sign in the middle of the [Em]night,
But I couldn't see the [Em]light, [D/F#]    [G] no, I couldn't see the [D]light, [A]    
I [D]kept on lookin' for a [A]way to take me through the [Em]night---,
[D]Couldn't get it [C]right, I couldn't get it [E]right!

[Bm]    [Bm]    
[Bm] L.A. fev - er, made me feel al - right, [A]    [G]    
But, I must admit, it got the [Bm]best of me,[D]    [C#m7]    
[Bm] Gettin' down, so deep I could've drowned, [A]    [G]    
Now I can't get back the way I [E]used to be!

And I [D]kept on looking for a [A]sign in the middle of the [Em]night,
But I couldn't see the [Em]light, [D/F#]    [G] no, I couldn't see the [D]light, [A]    
I [D]kept on lookin' for a [A]way to take me through the [Em]night---,
[D]Couldn't get it [C]right, I couldn't get it [E]right!

[Bm]    [A]    [G]    [Bm]    [D]    [C#m7]    
[Bm]    [A]    [G]    [E]    
[Bm] New York Ci - ty, took me with the tide, [A]    [G]    
I nearly died from hospi - [Bm]tality, [D]    [C#m7]    
[Bm] Left me strand - ed, took away my pride, [A]    [G]    
Just another no account fa - [E]tali - ty!

And I [D]kept on looking for a [A]sign in the middle of the [Em]night,
But I couldn't see the [Em]light, [D/F#]    [G] no, I couldn't see the [D]light, [A]    
I [D]kept on lookin' for a [A]way to take me through the [Em]night---,
[D]Couldn't get it [C]right, I couldn't get it [E]right!

And I [D]kept on looking for a [A]sign in the middle of the [Em]night,
But I couldn't see the [Em]light, [D/F#]    [G] no, I couldn't see the [D]light, [A]    
I [D]kept on lookin' for a [A]way to take me through the [Em]night---,
[D]Couldn't get it [C]right, I couldn't get it [E]right!


Time was drift - in', this rock had got to roll,
So I hit the road, and made my getaway,
Restless feel - in' ...really gotta hold,
I started searching for a better way!

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night,
But I couldn't see the light, no, I couldn't see the light,
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night---,
Couldn't get it right, I couldn't get it right!


L.A. fev - er, made me feel al - right,
But, I must admit, it got the best of me,
Gettin' down, so deep I could've drowned,
Now I can't get back the way I used to be!

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night,
But I couldn't see the light, no, I couldn't see the light,
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night---,
Couldn't get it right, I couldn't get it right!



New York Ci - ty, took me with the tide,
I nearly died from hospi - tality,
Left me strand - ed, took away my pride,
Just another no account fa - tali - ty!

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night,
But I couldn't see the light, no, I couldn't see the light,
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night---,
Couldn't get it right, I couldn't get it right!

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night,
But I couldn't see the light, no, I couldn't see the light,
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night---,
Couldn't get it right, I couldn't get it right!
