Intro: Ab Eb/G Ab/F  Eb/G x2

Ab                            Eb/G
She was lying on the floor and counting stretch marks
Fm7                          C#
She hadn't been a virgin and he hadn't been a god
Ab               Eb/G
So she names the baby Elvis
Fm7                    C#
To make up for the royalty he lacked
Ab                      Eb/G
And from then on it was turpentine and patches
Fm7                       C#
From then on it was cold Campbell's from the can
Ab                           Eb/G
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
Fm7                      C#
Cause that's all they knew how to play

Ab Eb/G Ab/F  Eb/G x2

Ab                                   Eb/G
And it was raining cats and dogs out side of her window
Fm7                                  C#
And she knew they were destined to become
                        Ab                                         
Sacred road kill on the way
                             Fm                Eb/G                                                
And she was listening to the sound of heavens shaking
                     C#               Ab     
Thinking about puddles, puddles and mistakes

                Eb/G                            
Cause it's been turpentine and patches
     Fm7            C#
It's been cold, cold Campbell's from the can
Ab                          Eb/G                            
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
 Fm7                  C#          F#
Cause that's all they knew how to play

C#     F#2     

Ab Eb/G Ab/F  Eb/G x2


Ab                Eb/G
Elvis never could carry a tune
Fm7                                C#
She thought about this irony as she stared back at the moon
Ab                  Eb/G                          Fm7
She was tracing her years with her fingers on her skin                                     
                C#
Saying why don't I begin again
Ab      Eb/G
With turpentine and patches
Fm7             C#
With cold, cold Campbell's from the can
Ab                         Eb/G
After all I'm still a jerk playing with matches
Fm7                              C#
It's just that he's not around to play along
Ab                  Eb/G
I'm still an asshole playing with candles
Fm7               C#
Blowing out wishes blowing out dreams
Ab                    Eb/G
Just sitting here and trying to decipher
Fm7                       C#      F#
What's written in Braille upon my skin...

C#      F#2 x3

Ab Eb/G Ab/F  Eb/G x2

Ab                            Eb/G      Ab/F     Eb/G
She was lying on the floor and counting stretch 

Ab                            Eb/G       Ab/F    Eb/G
She was lying on the floor and counting stretch

are u sure of the chord Eb/G? I dont hear the Eb in the bass there (it sounds very descending, like it's Ab going to G,
then to F)

ionno. maybe i'm wrong and I'm not hearing it correctly.

otherwise,
thanks so much! This helped me transcribe out the piano lines and everything! 5 stars (first too!)

while and i should have it written out for being played on guitar

oooh i just realized though, in the Eb/G, there's an Ab being played in there. I guess it's pulling teeth but shouldn't
it be Eb11/G?

I want to post or [tab]
