A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

VERSE                                                                                
A                          E                   D             A
I broke free on a Saturday morning, I put the pedal to the floor
         A                E          D                    A
Headed north on Mills Avenue and listened to the engine roar

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

My broken house behind me and good things ahead

a girl named Cathy wants a little of my time

Six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking Aha listen to the engine whine

CHORUS
               A                     E          D         A
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me
               A                     E          D         A
I am going to make it though this year if it kills me

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

VERSE

I played video games in a drunken haze
I was seventeen years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
trading swigs from a bottle all bitter and clean
locking eyes holding hands
twin high maintenance machines

CHORUS

BRIDGE
F#m                              A
I drove home in the California dusk,
F#m                                   A
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
F#m                                   A
Pictured the look on my stepfather's face
D                           E
ready for the bad things to come.

VERSE
I down shifted as I pulled into the driveway
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear
The scene ends badly as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear
There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year

CHORUS

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

Almost perfect except after the verses, it doesn't go A - E - D - E, it goes A - E - D - A.

I agree with Exo, he definitely goes back to an A at the end of the A, E, D sequence.

I'm not sold on the Bsus4 - and you've tabbed out Bsus2/A or Asus4 - a D used in the other two tabs seems most accurate.

Lastly, the line, "there will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year" has the chord sequence A, C#m, D, E (7th fret, A string).

They're just small corrections, everything else seems spot on. Nicely written out as well, made it very easy to follow.

@Exo
My mistake. I wrote it correctly on the top but not when I wrote it along with the lyrics.

@Andrewbiles
You're right, the chord is called Asus4 and not Bsus4. My mistake. The D chord SOUNDS okay, but I was going along with what he plays live which I THINK is Asus4, might be wrong. Refer to these videos.

And good observation on that last line! You're correct.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CORRECTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.) It's ALWAYS A-E-D-A for the intro and after the verses.

2.) This is the progression for the last line..

There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year
