E
Well I had a little feeling to have a big night
    B
And woke up feeling small and not so brave and not quite right
         E
I had to face the who am I and where is she what did I do
             A            B            E
But worst of all I had to face the big light

Chorus
E                                           A
The big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
       B                                      E
And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
        E                             A
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
        B
And I'm thankful I didn't open another bottle of inspiration

Nifty James Burton lick at end of chorus

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

          E                  A
Well it's fine to go out and have a big night
              B                                E
But sooner or later you've got to face the big light
