      F#m*
Hell, I remember when you were just ten years old,

playing out there in the desert
                              B
Just waiting for a sip of that sweet Mojave rain

(In the sweet Mojave rain
The boy was on his own)

Well no one else around believes me
        Cm                         C#m
But the children on the block they tease me
  B                          A    B
I couldn’t let them off that easy


//Bridge\\ (+ "Christmas-Like Guitar Part)
                   A              B
They had it coming, so why can’t you see?
           E                A
I couldn’t turn my cheek no longer
F#m
The sun is going down and Christmas is near
     B                                    *   E      (E)
Just look the other way and I’ll disappear forever

Woo!!!

Christmas riff should be up two frets to be in the same key.

Sorry, forgot to put this in the last one.
Your "F#m*" chord is actually A7.
