Capo 5

Dmmaj7      X00221
Dm7         X00211
Dm6         X00201
Ammaj7      X02110


INTRO: Am

VERSE:
...
[I don't have much but I got the good stuff
...
I keep it tucked away where you can find it if you've got the guts
Dm
Walk with me, walk with me, walk with me, walk
...
I got a girl from the 'burbs who won't talk
             Am
I don't have much but I got the good stuff]


VERSE:
(I don't know why but you make me sweat
When trouble comes calling, I'm packing my bags for the west
I'll give you nothing for nothing if that's what you desire
I'll let it cool if you light my fire
Bumper shine my way home
Bumper shine my way home)

CHORUS:
C              G        D             A
All the square pegs and all the round holes
C            G          D           A
Couldn't fit all of the stories you told
    C                     G
The pull of a moth to the fire
                 Am
Your Achilles' desire


VERSE:
...
[I don't have much but I am a rich man
...
I got a woman down from the Park Ridge who is finer than sand]
Dm            Dmmaj7        Dm7
Fall with me, fall with me, fall with me
Dm6              Dm           Dmmaj7     Dm7  Dm6
Fall through the waist of the hourglass, fall
              Am
[I don't have much but I am a rich man]


CHORUS:
A second-hand gypsy is no fading flower
Fingers are frozen in furious power
The pull of a moth to the fire
Your Achilles' desire

Cold, cold sweat on the back of my knees
The future runs in on the Assiniboine breeze
The pull of a moth to the fire
Your Achilles' desire

All the square pegs and all the round holes
Couldn't fit all of the stories you told
The pull of a moth to the fire
Your Achilles' desire

...
The pull of a moth to the fire
...                   Ammaj7
Your Achilles' desire
             Am
I don't have much

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             DEVIL'S GOT A GUN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INTRO: Am E E Am

VERSE:
Am                            E
Look out, this thing is gonna blow
                                  Am
I heard it from the people in the know
                                   E
There's trouble in the tenements below
                                       Am
There's fire where the flowers used to grow


CHORUS:
C         G    Am
I'm never going back
                     C
I'm running from the sun
              F
Bullets at my heels
                  C
The Devil's got a gun
I'm never going home
I'll be the only one
With daylight on my tail
And Heaven on the run

VERSE:
Rain is jumping up into the clouds
A girl has ceased to make her father proud
Lovers wrapped up in cellophane
The bitter fruit has fallen from its prey

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
C                         G
Help me, I know not who I see
      Dm                           C
I'm a stranger to the face looking back at me
       F                     C                       G
When a company of sisters is just like any mystery to me
Hold me, I know not who I am
If I'm a woman, you're a creature, not a man
The eyes of a lover- they look like any other to me

VERSE:
It's down to the second hand
The tick-tock is more than you can stand
The grinders and the wheels they never see
We're fighting to the bottom of the deep

CHORUS

Daylight on my tail
And Heaven on the run

B|--3p2-3-|--3p2-3-|

           A
[Is it the list and the sway
...
Is it the roll and the pitch]
F#m
(The drunken Gulf of Mexico
...
Or he seven-year itch)
            A
[I hear the mating calls of fireflies
...
Some celestial blues]
             F#m
(And they're bringing me around again
...
And that's something I can use)
            E
[Now I see] nothing but the water
...
And it's falling from my face
           G
[It is the face] (It is the face)
...
[It is the face] (It is the face) 
          D
I want to show you


[Will I remember to remember 
That without I'm a shadow]
(Of a drifter and a barfly 
And whatever else you had to be)
[It's true I've come around 
Now I can even touch my toes]
(And all the running and the talking-
Yeah, now everybody knows)
[You never] speak but I can hear you
As you sing out from your mismatched eyes
[They are the eyes] (They are the eyes)
[They are the eyes] 
I will to die with

[We're on a boat out on the ocean
And there's nothing more to share]
(We've gone from one wave to another
And back again a where)
[We go where guitars are hung over
And the songs are fast asleep]
(I feel the flesh wounds in my heart
But they are mine for me to keep)
[In your] pocket or your fist
Or in your mind but they come to you [by your ears]
(They are the ears) [They are the ears]
(They are the ears) 
That I will sing to

                             PETERBILT COALMINE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INTRO: Am Am Fmaj7 Fmaj7 Dm Dm Am Em

VERSE:
Am
   [I been eyeing up a coalmine baby
Fmaj7
   I been eyeing up a Peterbilt truck and
Dm
   I been listening to the radio sometimes
Am                    G
   And it's making my backbone wilt]
Am
   I been dreaming of the mighty, mighty Red
Fmaj7
   And the thatched roof hut that I'd put on it and
Dm
   You gotta figure there's a local 'round the bend
          C                        G
   With a shattered red barstool and my name's on it


CHORUS 1:
C
   Has the record stopped
   Em
   Spinning?
Dm
   Has the other boot dropped?
         G          F
   Is my punk flame burning
   C    F C
   Out?


VERSE:
I keep my eye upon the Bluejay flying
From your collar to your hipbone baby
I don't expect it to be on you always
But surprise me with it one day maybe
The way you did when I came in from the cold
And nothing on you but a devil-wide grin and
I don't imagine I could tire of the act but/echo
What a lonely, lonely road it's been

CHORUS 2:
C
   Has the record stopped
   Em
   Spinning?
Dm
   Has the other boot dropped?
         G          G# (maybe A#)
   Is my punk flame burning out?
C
   And has the band moved on
      Em
   And left me on the farm?
Dm
   Is my rock 'n' roll nerve all spent
          G                   F                C   F C
   Just a flaming heart on an old man's arm


CHORUS 2

I been eyeing up a coalmine baby
I been eyeing up a Peterbilt truck and
I been listening to the radio sometimes...

(Cold snap apathy
D
Killer hypothermic heart)

Hieroglyphics in the snow

Snow to slush at the Charleswood Lagoon

F#m         D7        F#m
Oh, for the love of it
            D7         F#m
Or just the hell of it
               F#m6
Just sink your claws in it
A         D
Set me on fire

PART 2:

If you want her

You can have her

Jane, you know, you're gonna get caught

PART 3:
C                   Em
One more last clean slate
F                   G       G#
Count your pennies, say your prayers
C         Em
Everybody burns
F                     G#
Crawl through all the endless layers


VERSE:
Jane don't lose your jam
Don't underestimate your hand
Play the ace, don't show it on your face

PART 2:
Keep the jack
You're the queen
Take the chips 
To the cash machine

VERSE:
Jane you hurt so good
Like all the B-movie harlots would
Play the part, take the body, not the heart

PART 3:
Face down in the mire
Hidden with the hearts for hire
Everybody knows 
But you and it shows

(I'm not yours
        (E)
You are mine
              Am Fmaj7
Let that sink in
              C    G
Like the Mary Rose
She went down
With a heavy load
But who is this fading flower?
Mm-mm)

CHORUS:
        C
Come to life
       E
In the spring
      Am
I was shaking
          Fmaj7

You should know
In like lamb
Out like a lion
(I came in)
Like a lamb
Out like a lion

C

VERSE:
We grew up
So we were told
Time just leaves us
Out in the cold
Seasons change
I'm getting warm
A feline in mohair
Mm-mm

Out like a lion

(There's no glamour in the hammer but they sell it at the Big 'n' Tall
Em G A C
              Em          G          A                      C

There's no getting out of this

(Got no Ambien, no Secondal, no genie in a lithium bottle
Just a first aid kit and a suicidal lingerie model
Keep the trunk locked up, rev the engine, hammer the throttle)

There's no getting out of this one
There's no getting out of this
You got a camouflage lover
And a bulletproof kiss

BRIDGE (instrumental):
Am C D F

(Way up on the escarpment, on a good day you can see the smokestacks
Down below St Joe's spilling over with heart attacks
Down the east steps Fitzcaraldo covers up your tracks)

INTRO: E5


VERSE:
 E5
[You've got those far away eyes
               E7
Baby, far away eyes
And I've got these radiator blues
Baby, what am I to do?]

CHORUS:
 A
[Let's not talk about much tonight
...
Just move to the silence in the lone starlight
...
Hold me by the hands and bring your body closer
                            B
I want the heat, I want the roller coaster]


VERSE:
Please put your body in my bed
And your pretty little head
Whisper me things you'd never dare
I can take you there

CHORUS:
I been waiting too long for the this
The touch of your fingers and your sweet, sweet kiss
Hold me in your gaze until my mind is weak
You are the medicine that I seek

BRIDGE:
G
Where have you been, baby?
C                       D
Off to the far side and sitting on the beach
        Em
In some faraway land that never 
C    
Ends
G
When you coming back, baby?
C                  D
I got the radiator blues
            Em             C C D D#
But I won't ever leave you cold

Baby, far away eyes
And I've got these radiator blues
Baby, what am I to do?]

Tuning: Probably DADGAD or DGCFAD. Written here in standard.

Gm6/D   XX0330


INTRO: D Gm D Gm6/D

VERSE:
     D                  Gm        D    Gm6/D
[The clouds- they moved in on the hour
It's a part of this town I despise
But if it should yield but one small, snow-white flower
And one happy tear in your eye
Then let it come down, let it fall, give us rain
And I'll thank the almighty powers
'Cause one precious drop from those glorious pools 
You call eyes is all I require]

CHORUS:
Annie Lu, Annie Lu
Won't you save me from you
'Cause that's a whole lotta love for one little boy
I'll love you until no more loving can be
Annie Lu, Annie Lu, Annie Lu

VERSE:
[If you should ever just up and go
Won't you spare me the agony of watching you leave?
'Cause my heart might go off like a pistol
And make a dead man out of me]

                             WISCONSIN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Capo 2


VERSE:
                          Am
They're busting unions in Wisconsin
                      C
We got mojitos by the pool
                       Dm
We got a talent for distraction
                   Am            E
No reaction to the colic and the cruel
They're sinking battleships at midnight
We change the channel on a dime
When they break to a commercial
Dress rehearsal in our catatonic prime/crime

CHORUS 1:
               F
Time is moving on
                    C
There's no marching band
                     Dm
Just some fuzzed out credits, names of strangers,
      Am               E
And a nightcap in your hair


VERSE
They're digging ditches in Zuccoti
We're getting famous by the hour
All our pirates are Johnny, not Somali
trading bad seeds for flowers
Everybody's got a ticket and a backstage pass
Everybody's going somewhere someday
Even the mighty- they won't last-

CHORUS 2:
Night I had a dream
You were there
Weaving through the burrows/burroughs
                        E
Down the high line with daisies in your hair


VERSE:
They're busting unions in Toronto

CHORUS 3:
I'm coming down
From wishful thinking and the like
I'm sober as a judge
                   E            F
But the jury's out drinking tonight


VERSE:
They're busting unions in Wisconsin
And praising Jesus in the schools
They keeping science in the basement
                            E
Speaking tongues and making fools

F#7     242322


INTRO:
Em9 Em9 F# F# Am D Em  
Em Em F#7 F#7 Am D Em  


VERSE:
             Em
(Sometimes I just
                 F#
I can't help but think
             Am          D
There's a particular way
                Em
For an angel to sleep)
With her head just so
Turned up unaware
That you're standing there watching her dream
Something frightfully beautiful

Em9

CHORUS 1:
            G
Why can't I take this car
                D
And drive it to Mexico?
            Am              F
We'll rob a Texaco in Santa Fe
                       Em
Where we'll run out of gas

F

VERSE:
I wonder why
It scares me to death
You tell me everything you ever thought about
Love was a lie
(I should be struck dumb)
Happily insane
But the man in my head recommends against 
                  Em D G
Paving my history


CHORUS 2:
Why can't I take this car
And drive it to Mexico?
We'll rob a Texaco in Santa Fe
                       G
Where we'll run out of gas
Why can't I take this bird
And fly her to Jupiter?
Pit stop in Venus, stare back at the Earth
While she catches her
Em    D    G      E Am Am D D
