Here is "The Stakes Are High" by Ezra Furman and the Harpoons. This is the bare bones version of it. Ezra throws in some stuff that I can't figure out how to do. But this will get you through the song. The one flair that I was able to pick up on is, he occasionally uses an alternate fingering for a Bm. It's essentially just the Am formation in the Bm position, but it sounds good. So throw that in for effect. Have fun. Alternate fingering for Bm is used occasionally it is e 2 B 3 G 4 D 4 A x E x G Bm I dove into your heart like a pool C/G G D But there was no water in it and I felt like a fool Am C/G G When I hit the concrete bottom and I broke in two C/G D Ooh oh oh oh oh oh G Bm Walked to the hotel through the door C/G G D But the man at the desk said you weren't staying there no more Am C/G G And I felt so stupid so sorry that I called you a whore C/G D Ooh oh oh oh oh oh C/G G Am G You were just doin' what you had to do C/G G Am G And I feel so dumb for bein' mad at you ooh C/G G Am G I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you C/G G Am G I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you Am C/G G My heart is full I've got no room, no room G Bm I grew up with my family C/G G D But I did not want to leave and I cried like a baby Am C/G G I asked, "Could I ever come back home?" and my Dad said "Maybe..." C/G D ooh oh oh oh oh oh G Bm So I found a new place to live C/G G D But I had trouble figuring out what's not real and what is Am C/G G The big city was so crazy I could hardly even breathe C/G D Ooh oh oh oh oh oh C/G G Am G And now I'm living in a fantasy C/G G Am G And I will always live there probably ooh C/G G Am G You could move in, you could move in with me C/G G Am G You could move in, you could move in with me Am C/G G The stakes are high, the trees are green okay! C/G G Am G We're all just doin' what we have to do C/G G Am G Nothin' will ever be like it was back in 1992 no-o C/G G Am G And I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you C/G G Am G I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you Am C/G G My heart's real full but I'll make room, I'll make room
