1. Flowers in Your Hair

G
When we were younger

We thought everyone was on our side

Then we grew a little
                    C
And romanticized the time I saw
                     G
Flowers in your hair
        D
Takes a boy to live
      C                            G
Takes a man to pretend he was there


G
So then we grew a little
Knew a lot

And now we demonstrated it to the cops
             C
And all the things we said
                         G 
We were self assured
        D
It's a long road to wisdom
       C                           G
It's a short one to being ignored



         Em     D
Be in my eye
             G
Be in my heart
         Em           D
Be in my eye, eyeyeye
             G
Be in my heart



G
So now I think that I could love you back

And I hope its not too late

'Cause you're so attractive
       C
And the way you move
                     G
I won't close my eyes
         D
Takes a man to live
        C                             G
Takes a woman to make him compromise



         Em     D
Be in my eye
             G
Be in my heart
         Em           D
Be in my eye, eyeyeye
             G
Be in my heart

2. Classy Girls

Capo 5


   G                
Well, she was standing in the bar
     C              
I said, "Hello, how do you do?"
    D           C                  G 
She handed me a beer with a kangaroo

 G
She spoke of places I had never
     C
That she had travelled to
    D                C                G
And we slowed danced along to faster tunes


  G                                                           C
I made her laugh, I made a pass, I showed her my half dollar ring

She said, "That's pretty cool,
     D                 C                  G
But classy girls don't kiss in bars, you fool"


 G
So later on the crowd calmed down
    C
And I believe it was as if
  D                 C            G
Something drew me closer to her lips


G
So picture my surprise when 
        C
I had tried to lean in for a kiss
    D                    C                G
And she just smiled and turned her head down


 G
I asked her, "Why?" and she replied,
                              C
"It was nothing I was doing wrong, its just what it is"
      D                 C                 G
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars like this



    C                  D
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars
C                     D
Boys will break their backs and hearts
    C                G               D      
But its alright, the hardest part is through
D  
Oh through
D  D
Oh Oh
             G 
Hardest Part

--------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Submarines

G            C      G       D        
I believe submarines
G            C       G       D  
Underneath deep blue seas
G            C        G         D  
Saw the flags: Japanese
G             C       G        D  
No one will believe me

Em                     D 
Ran back to the town bar and
G
I told the people how
Em                      D
I had seen the submarine and
C
Everyone laughed aloud 

G    C  G      D   x2  
 

G          C    G       D  
I did spy a periscope
G                      C       G       D
Dead of night on the eastern coast
G                C     G       D
The police made them jokes
G            C      G        D
Told me I'd seen a ghost


Em                    D
Everyone thinks I'm a liar
G
No one knows the truth
Em                 D
If it was a bigger fire
C
I would be on the roof

G    C  G      D   x4

G                      C    G       D
Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay
G               C    G       D
No one trusts what I say
G           C      G       D
Oh my God, no one paid
G                    C    G       D
Overnight my hair turned gray

Em                   D      
In the end it boils down 
   G
to credibility
Em                     D
I have none, so I will die 
     C
with the secrets of the sea

G    C  G      D   x2

G    C  G      D
             Submarine...
G    C  G      D

-------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Dead Sea

C                                       E
I stood alone, upon the platform in vain
                                       F
Puerto Ricans they were playing me salsa in the rain
                                C
With open doors and manual locks
       F     G    F     C
In fast food parking lots

C                                    E
I headed West, I was a man on the move

New York had lied to me, I needed the truth
           F                                    C
Oh, I need somebody, needed someone I could trust
         F                G           F      C
I don't gamble, but if I did I would bet on us


C
Like the Dead Sea
                             F
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
                                Am
You'll never sink when you are with me
      G           F      C
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea
C
Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
                             F
The finest words you ever said to me
                  Am
Honey can't you see,
             G             F    C
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea


C                                         E
You told me you were good at running away
                                              F
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
                                         C
You left with just the clothes on your back
      F      G             F        C
You took the rest when you took the map

C                                             E
Yes, there are times we live for somebody else

Your father died and you decided to live
           F                                    C
It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time
        F                    G         F            C
And I'm glad, cause you with cats, that's just not right



C
Like the Dead Sea
                             F
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
                                Am
You'll never sink when you are with me
      G           F      C
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea
C
Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
                             F
The nicest words you ever said to me
                  Am
Honey can't you see,
             G             F    C
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea



I been down, I been defeated
Am G F
     You're the message I was heeding
F E  D
     Would you stay,
                   G
Would you stay the night?


C
Like the Dead Sea
                             F
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
                                Am
You'll never sink when you are with me
      G           F      C
Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

C
Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
                             F
The nicest words you ever said to me
                  Am
Honey can't you see,
             G             F    C
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

5. Ho Hey

C                               F C
I've been trying to do it right
C                               F C
I've been living the lonely life
C                               F C
I've been sleeping here instead
C                               F Am
I've been sleeping in my bed
Am                   G       C
I've been sleeping in my bed


C                                   F C
So show me family
C                                   F C
And all the blood that I will bleed
C                                   F C
I don't know where I belong
C                                   F Am
I don't know where I went wrong
Am               G           C
But I can write a song.


              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet



C                                   F C
I don't think you're right for him
C                              F C
Think of what it might've been if you
C                          F C
Took a bus to Chinatown
C                      F Am        G  C
I'd be standing on Canal...and Bowery
Am                       G        C
And she'd be standing next to me


              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart



      F      G
And love, we need it now
       F           G
Let's hope for some
      F          G
Cuz oh, we're bleeding out

              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
              Am                  G                   C
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet
--------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Slow it Down
Capo 1

C
I feel a filth in my bones
                         F
Wash off my hands till it's gone
Am
Your walls they're closing in
G                        C
With velvet curtains

C             
Some love was made for the lights
                           F
Some kiss your cheek and goodnight
Am
Lift up a red high heel
G                               C
Lock up your doors with steel

C
You're making noise in my street
                          F
My blinds are drawn, I can't see
Am              
Smashed in my car window
G                          C
Didn't touch the stereo


F       Am
Slow it down
          G            C
And you come back to bed
F         Am         G        C
Rest your arms and rest your legs


C
Act like you've been here before
                         F
Smile less and dress up some more
Am
Tie up your scarf real tight
G                                     C
These boys are out for blood tonight


F       Am
Slow it down
          G            C
And you come back to bed
F         Am         G        C
Rest your arms and rest your legs

C
And when she stood she stood tall
                        F
She'll make a fool of you all
Am
Don't ask for cigarettes
G                                   C
She ain't got nothing left for you

C
I never, she never, we never look back
                          F
That wasn't what we were good at
Am
And when it came to love
G                               C
We were not good enough for it


F       Am
Slow it down
          G            C
And you come back to bed
F         Am         G        C
Rest your arms and rest your legs

F          Am                 G            C
Don't you frown when you're feeling like that
F     Am                G      C
Only love can pick you out of this
--------------------------------------------------------------------

7. Stubborn Love

F                        Am         C            
She'll lie and steal and cheat, and beg you from her knees
    F                   Am    G       C
And make you thinks she means it this time
F                     Am       C
She'll tear a hole in you, the one you can't repair 
    F                 Am      G      C
But I still love her, I don't really care 


F            C      Am     G    
When we were young, Oh Oh, we did enough
F           C      Am      G            
When it got cold, Ooh Ooh, we bundled up
F         C     Am    G                  C
I cant be told, Ah Ah It cant be done

F                   Am          F           C
It's better to feel pain, than nothing at all
F              Am       G        C
The opposite of love's indifference
F             Am          F             C         G      C
Pay attention now, I'm standing on your porch screaming out
F               Am         G            C
And I wont leave until you come downstairs


F                 C            G    Am
So keep your head up, keep your love
F              C      G    Am
keep your head up, my love 
F              C      G    Am

Keep your head up, keep your love


F                Am         F               C    G          C
I don't blame ya dear for running like you did, all these years
F              Am         G    C
I would do the same, your best believe
F                     Am                 F                C      G  C
The highway signs say we're close, but I don't read those things anymore
F               Am  G   C
I never trusted my own eyes

F            C      Am     G    
When we were young, Oh Oh, we did enough
F           C      Am      G            
When it got cold, Ooh Ooh, we bundled up
F         C     Am    G                  C
I cant be told, Ah Ah It cant be done


F                 C            G    Am
So keep your head up, keep your love
F              C      G    Am

11. Morning Song


C
The carbonation in my drink
G
The bubbles rise while my heart sinks
F                                     C G
And I'll I tend to do is think of you


C
Was it easier to pack your bags
G
And book that flight to Paris as
F                                      C G
The plane began to move that afternoon



C
When all the trains have pulled away
G
From local stations in decay
F                                         C G
It's I who waits, it's you who's late again


C
And did you think of me when you made love
G
To him, was it the same as us
F                                      C G
Or was it different, it must have been


C          G       C
And all the pretty dames
       F        Am      G
They'll hug and kiss you all the same
               F         C
And when they go, they're gone
        Am  G   C    F
They're not running late
C       G      C
Oh all, all the pretty dames


C             G             C
And the kids you hold in your arms
     F     Am    G
With promises to protect them from harm
            F          C
But they grow, and they go
    Am     G  C  F
And you're all alone
       C              G             C
All the kids, all the kids that you hold


          C             G         C
And it's a shame that it ends this way
     F       Am      G
With nothing left to say
       F           C            Am G   C F
So just sit on your hands, while I walk aw-ay
C             G             C
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
        C     G        C
When my hands begin to shake
    F       Am           G
When bitterness is all I taste
       F         C
And may car won't stop
     Am G   C   F
Cause I cut the brakes
  C            G          C
I hold on to a hope in my fate


C     G     C
Oh oh ah ah hey hey
    F   Am        G
May you return to love one day
     F            C
Well I hope and I pray
    Am  G    C   F
You get what you gave
