[INTRO]

| G / / / | G / / / |


[VERSE 1]

G                                       Am Em
  Happiness hit her like a train on a track...
G                                             Am Em
  Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back...
  

[PRE CHORUS 1]  
G
  She hid around corners and she hid under beds
G                       Am       Em
  She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
     G
With every bubble she sank with her drink
      G         Am          Em
And washed it away down the kitchen sink


[CHORUS 1]

    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
    G          Am
The horses are coming
   Em
So you better run


[BRIDGE 1]

    G
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
G
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
G                             Am
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
         Em
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive


[CHORUS 2]

    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses?
       Em              G
'Cause here they come 

(silence)


[VERSE 2]

(quiet)

    G G            G        Am      Em
And I never wanted anything from you
       G        G             G             Am         Em
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh


[PRE CHORUS 2]

(loud again)

G                G                     G  Am Em
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head.....
G                          G               G              Am        Em
 Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that


[CHORUS 3]

    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses?
       Em             G
'Cause here they come


[INTERLUDE - PERCUSSION]
G chord sustaining


[BRIDGE 2]

    G
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
G
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
G                           Am
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
         Em
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive


[CHORUS 4]

    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses?
       Em
'Cause here they come


[OUTRO]

    F
The dog days are over
    Am            G
The dog days are done
F                F
The horses are coming
   Am         Am     C     C   G
So you better run
