Tabbed by: Tyler Estes
Email: ohdarn323@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

It's just B F#m E throughout the whole song

[B]I am an American [F#m]aquarium [E]drinker
[B]I assassin down the [F#m]avenue[E]
[B]I'm hiding out in the [F#m]big city [E]blinking
[B]What was I thinking when I [F#m]let go of [E]you

Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning
Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers
This is not a joke so please stop smiling
What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt

I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
Take you from the inside, baby hold on tight
You were so right when you said I've been drinking
What was I thinking when we said good night

I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn
You're quite a quiet, domino, bury me now
Take off your band-aid 'cause I don't believe in touchdowns
What was I thinking when we said hello

I always thought that if I held you tightly
You'd always love me like you did back then
Then I fell asleep in the city kept blinking
What was I thinking when I let you back in

[B]I am trying to [F#m]break your [E]heart
[B]I am trying to [F#m]break your [E]heart
[B]But still I would be lying if I [F#m]said it wasn't [E]easy
[B]I am trying to [F#m]break your [E]heart

Disposable Dixie cup drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I've been hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you

(Loves you)

I'm the man who loves you

Here's the keyboard riff in between verses:

I've seen Jeff Tweedy a few times. He likes to capo. The chords are true to the music but he plays this one with a capo on the 2nd fret with simpler chord progression, A Em D. For a newbie, it is much simpler and very true to the music/artist. Now, to memorize all those damn lyrics... :).

Technically the A Em D progression with capo 2 is the same as the B F#m E. They are the same chords just at different spots on the guitar. If you raise an A by two semitones (capo 2) you get a B etc...
