Lyrics:

I want to be the boy to warm your mother's heart
I'm so scared to take you away
I tried to win her over right from the start
But something always goti nt he way
We've been sitting in your backyard for hours
But she won't even come out and say hi
While my mother baked a little cake for you
And even dreaded when you said goodbye

What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull?
What kind of joke should I lay on her now?
I'm inclined to go finish hight school
Just to make her notice that I'm around

Well nothing I come up with seems to work
It feels like everything I say is a lie
And never have I felt like such a jerk
I'm afraid to even open my eyes
Because I really don't want her to judge me
I want her to really know who I am
And the, and only then will she love me
Well at least that was the plan

If ever a boy needed a holiday
If ever a girl needed someone to hold
I just hope I don't act the same way
By the time that I get that old

I never said I was the heir to a fortune
I never claimed to have any looks
But these kind of things must be important
Because somebody ripped out my page
In your telephone book

I want to warm her heart

Well you know




Chorus 2:
You keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in a safe a lock it
'cause it's home sweet home


Verse 2:
The smile on your face made her think she had the right one
Then she thought she was sure
By the way you two could have fun
But now she might leave
Like she's threatened before
Grab hold of her fast
Before her feet leave the floor
And she's out the door
'cause you want


Chorus 3:
To keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in a safe a lock it
'cause it's home sweet home

Verse 3:
And in your own mind
You know your're lucky just to know her
And in the beginning all you wanted was to show her
But now you're scared
You think she's running away
You search in your hand for something clever to say
Don't go away
'cause I want

Chorus 4:
To keep you in my pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in a safe a lock it
'cause it's home sweet home

C    G     A
home sweet home

13. GIRL, YOU HAVE NO FAITH IN MEDICINE
    Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

ok this is really easy.
same riff over and over again and though jack white does some fancy shit
occasionally in the riff here is the usual typical riff.
sounds good and is easy to learn.
just listen to the song and play the riff in rythm with jack.

E|-----------------------------||
B|-----------------------------||
G|-----------------------------||
D|-----------------------------||
A|-2-5-5-5-2-5-5-5-2-5-5-2-----||play this riff twice but ignore the first 
E|-0-3-3-3-0-3-3-3-0-3-3-0-----||note the second time.

then onto...

14. IT'S TRUE THAT WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER (Chords)
    Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

A
Well it's true that we love one another

                         E
I love Jack White like a little brother

                      D
Well Holly I love you too but there's

                                     A
Just so much that I don't know about you




A
Jack give me some money to pay my bills 
All the dough I give you Holly

                       E
You been using on pain pills

Jack will you call me if you're able? 

           D
I got your phone number written

                  E
In the back of my bible

                             D
Jack I think your pulling my leg 

                               A
And I think maybe I better ask Meg




A
Meg do you think Jack really loves me? 
You know, I don't care because 

                 E
Jack really bugs me
                      D
Why don't you ask him now? 
Well I would Meg
                         A
I really just don't know how 
Just say 'Jack , do you adore me?'
                                         E
Well I would Holly but love really bores me
                             D
Well maybe we should just be friends 
I'm just kidding Holly 
                                     A
You know that I'll love you 'til the end 


A
Well it's true that we love one another 
                                 E
I love Jack White like a little brother 
                      D
Well Holly I love you too but there's
                                     A
Just so much that I don't know about you 


A
Holly give me some of your English lovin'
                                       E
If I did that Jack I'd have one in the oven
                                   D
Why don't you go off and just love yourself
If I did that Holly there won't be anything 
                 A
Left for anybody else 
Jack it's too bad about the way you look 
You know I gave that horse a carrot 
                   E
So he'd break your foot 
                           D
Will the two of you cut it out 
                                  A
And tell 'em what it's really all about 


A
Well it's true that we love one another 
                                  E
I love Jack White like a little brother
                      E
Well Holly I love you too but there's
                                     A
Just so much that I don't know about you
