The 9th track off of the newest addition to The Gaslight Athem's back catalogue 
'American Slang.' If you don't have this album I highly reccommend it. One of my 
new all time faves!

Here goes...

Intro: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse)

Verse:

G
The cool is dead, baby go on to sleep
E
Rest your weary head and lover bury me
G
And in the morning we'll start over again
E                               C
That's how they do it up on the screen
G
So me and my baby we would dance all night
E
But I don't know the steps in my baby's time
G
To do it like they do it for the girls uptown
E                                 C
I hear they light 'em up like the blues


Pre-Chorus:


       E               C
So I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
          E                  C
And she's waiting, and she's waiting

          D
For us to remember...


Chorus:


      E       C        G          D
Was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    E                  C                G            D
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   E      C           G        D
So I will wait on the edges in between
      C        D
These New York streets
                      G
Where you and I would meet


Post Chorus: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse)


Verse 2:

G
For 29 years we loved that line
E
And I would take it easy if I had your mind
G
But I'm a cannonball to a house on fire
E                           C
And you're slow like Motown Soul
G
So what now lover with your long black hair?
E
If I cut you open baby I can repair
G
And bandage your wounds with the salt on my tongue
E                           C
And I'm the only one 'round here


Pre-Chorus 2:


       E               C
So I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
          E                  C
And she's waiting, and she's waiting

          D
For us to recover...


Chorus 2:


      E       C        G          D
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    E                  C                G            D
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   E      C           G        D
So I will wait on the edges in between
      C        D
These New York streets
                      G
Where you and I would meet


Bridge:

         E  C  G         D
And only I can heal your wounds
     E C   G         D
Only I can heal your wounds
         E        C
When you can't go on
         G        D
When you can't go on
         E        C
When you can't go on
         D            E
When you can't go on, anymore...


Muted Pre-Chorus:


         E       C        G          D
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    E                  C 
Not another soul could love you
       G  D
Like my...


Chorus 3:

      E       C        G          D
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    E                  C                G            D
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   E      C           G        D
So I will wait on the edges in between
      C        D
These New York streets
             C        D
On all these New York streets
                      G
Where you and I would meet


Hopefully everything is okay but as I worked this out by ear who knows?
Enjoy! :)

The E should definitely be Em, other than that it's alright.
