CHORUS
D            A/C#         Bm           G
Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!


VERSE
                        D
It was the start of the show
       A/C#
Hiroshima
        Bm          G
And the people were shouting my name
       D
As the house lights came down
        A/C#
And the spotlight followed me out
  Bm
I waved hello to the crowd
     G
As I busted ass off the front of the stage


CHORUS
D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G                            [D]
They're watching me, watching me fall


VERSE
D
 Maybe it was the rush of adrenaline
A/C#
 As the concrete rose to meet my face
Bm
 Maybe it was the sheer embarrassment
G
 That kept me conscious and standing as I
D
 Crawled back on the stage
A/C#
 And started pounding out the first song
Bm
 There was blood on the keyboard...
G (break)
... Oh my God!
 

CHORUS
D              A/C#             Bm

        G
They're watching me, watching me fall
D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G                            [D]
They're watching me, watching me fall

MIDDLE 8
Bm
  You wanna see what's in my head?
D
  You wanna see what's in my head?
A/C#
  You wanna see what's in my head?
G
  Check it out 'cause ...
Bm
 I got pictures of what's in my head
D
 I got pictures of what's in my head
     A/C#
They took'em in Tokyo
      G
And I brought 'em back with me to the USA


CHORUS
D              A/C#             Bm

They're watching me, watching me fall
D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G                            D
They're watching me, watching me fall


OUTRO
D (jam)

It's true, I fell
And I hit my ... my head, you know
I mean my head ... my ankle, my ankle was black 
But my head got a concussion
They took x-rays and ... 
I asked the doctor ... if he could tell whether I was ... 
I don't speak Japanese so ...
