[Intro]
G  D  Am
G  D  C


[Verse]
Em                      C
  Friday night and it's snowing outside
G                     D
 I'm all alone here watching it fall
Em               C
TV's on but the sound's turned down
     G               D                  Am
Somehow I knew he'd know to call right now


[Pre-Chorus]
   Am                     C
I oughta just let it ring
                            D
'Cause every time it's the same damn thing


[Chorus]
 G                        D                   Am     C
Why's he always gotta be calling me when I'm lonely?
          G                    D                  Am
It's so wrong to be leading me on and I can't say no
     G                         D
He swears that it's gonna be different
              Am          C
this time but it won't be
 Am~
Why's he always gotta be calling me
          G      D Am
when I'm lonely?


[Verse]
Em                 C
 He left a message saying
   G                D
he was only fifteen minutes away
Em                     C
And that's just enough time for me
    G            D                 Am
to figure out if I should stay or leave
 Am
But if I think it through
C
 I ain't got nothing better than you


[Chorus]
 G
Why's he always gotta be
 D                   Am     C
calling me when I'm lonely?
          G
It's so wrong to be leading me
D                  Am
on and I can't say no
     G
He swears that it's gonna be
  D                     Am          C
different this time but it won't be
 Am~
Why's he always gotta be
                     G      D
calling me when I'm lonely?


[Bridge]
Am
  He's at the front door now
Bm
  With his magic smile
C
  And he'll be gone tomorrow
D
  But right now he's mine for
         G  D  C  D   Em  C  D
a little while


[Chorus]
 G
Why's he always gotta be
 D                   Am     C
calling me when I'm lonely?
          G
It's so wrong to be leading me
D                  Am
on and I can't say no
     G
He swears that it's gonna be
  D                     Am          C
different this time but it won't be
 Am~
Why's he always gotta be calling me
          G      D
when I'm lonely?


[Outro]
 Am~
Why's he always gotta be calling me when
     G      D  Am  C    G  D  C
I'm lonely?
