Jimmy Eat World - Coffee And Cigarettes

Standard Tuning

Intro: F  Dm  A#

Verse 1:

       F
When I finally finished school

           Dm                    A#
It was the first thing that I did

     F                    
What every townie kid dreams of,

     Dm              A#
I packed and started west

     F          
A thousand dollars I had saved

       Dm              A#
And my sister's two cassettes:

    F
The Dead from Fillmore East

         Dm                     A#    
And Otis Redding's Greatest Hits

Chorus:

C           Dm  A#
Coffee and Cigarettes

C         Dm    A#
As simple as it gets

C                   Dm             A#
Of all the things I think I'll miss,

C      
There's staying up with you

            Dm
Coffee and Cigarettes

            A#
Coffee and Cigarettes

Prelude: F  Dm  A#

Verse 2:

F   
Then, I commit with some restraint

     Dm                  A#
To a boy I thought might care

    F             
It didn't work but I found out soon

    Dm              A#
And never dug roots there

F  
Been a lot of places since

    Dm             A#
But nothing else compares

   F
To easy times and easy eyes

    Dm            A#
To meet you in a stare


Chorus:

C           Dm  A#
Coffee and Cigarettes

C         Dm    A#
As simple as it gets

C                   Dm             A#
Of all the things I think I'll miss,

C      
There's staying up with you

            Dm
Coffee and Cigarettes

            A#
Coffee and Cigarettes

Solo: A#, F, A#, F, Dm, A#, F, Dm, A#, C, F

Hold F

Verse 3: 

       F
When I finally finished school

           Dm                    A#
It was the first thing that I did

     F                    
What every townie kid dreams of,

     Dm              A#
I packed and started west

Nice thanks. I transpose down 3 steps here for D Bm G (Verse) and A Bm G (Chorus) and Capo 3 for my beginner skills (not so good with bars/Bb ;-) and its close if high...

Of course... you can do whatever you want... You can also try capo on 5th fret :) Verse: C, Am, F; Chorus: G, Am, F :)

Drop D is how they play it, so you can get that low D chord, but this is solid.
