We Used to Vacation
by
Cold War Kids

Am
I kissed the kids at noon 
G#m
then stumbled out the room 
Gm
I caught a cab ran up a tab
F#m
on 7th and flower 

Am
best recital I had to ruin 
G#m
missed my son's graduation 
Gm
punched the Nickles boy for taking his seat 
F#m
gets all that anger from me 

Am                          G#m
still things could be much worse 
            Gm                  F#m
natural disasters on the evening news 
Am                        G#m                     Gm
still things could be much worse we still got our health 
F#m
my paycheck in the mail 
 
                 C        G             F
I promised to my wife and children 
                 C
I'd never touch another drink 
    G        F
as long as I live but even then 
   C         G              F
it sounds so soothing 
C        G            F
this will blow over in time 
C         G                Am
this will all blow over in time 

Am
I'm just an honest man 
G#m
provide for me and mine 
Gm
I give a check to tax deductible 
F#m
charity organizations 
Am                 G#m
two weeks paid vacation 
                   Gm
won't heal the damage done 
       F#m
I need another one 

Am                         G#m
still things could be much worse 
           Gm                    F#m
natural disasters on the evening news 
Am                         G#m
still things could be much worse 
                 Gm
we still got our health 
                  F#m
my paycheck in the mail 

                 C        G            F
I promised to my wife and children 
                C
I'd never touch another drink 
    G        F
as long as I live but even then 
   C         G             F
it sounds so soothing
            
to mix a drink 
    C         G            F
and sink into oblivion 

                 C        G             F
I promised to my wife and children 

that accident 
C               G           F
left everyone a little shook up 

but at the meetings 
  C       G        F
I felt so empty 
C         G            F
this will blow over in time 
C         G                F
this will all blow over in time

P.S. listen to the song to get the tempo and everything, but here you go...enjoy!!

Hey Try tuning your B string up to a C . then play an A5 this will give you an Am, then keep the A5 position and do the base run down
G#, G, F#. buy playing it this way its much easyer, The chorus can be played with this tuning . Same as you did in your version , but compensate for the tuned up string .I found it easyer and sounds better
