VERSE 1:
	  C			      Em
Me and My best friend Jim started our own band
	   Am		     F
When I was fifteen living in Deutschland.
       C		    Em
Didn't matter that we could hardly play
	       Am			   F
Came up with a crazy name, called the band "Queen UK"
	     C		       Em
I played the guitar, he played drums
	    Am			    F		
Our parents told us one day we'd be bums
	 C			 Em
And everyday we'd go over to his parents house
	   Am			 F
And in the basement we'd play as hard and loud
	    C			 Em
As we could get it. It drove his mom mad
	     Am			  F
But it never seemed to bother his drunk dad.
	 C	      Em
We wrote five or six, songs or so
   Am				  F
We played them at the high school talent show
	    C			    Em
We blew the shit up. The girls went crazy. 
	     Am			  F
We looked so cool. They called us 'baby.'
	  C	       Em
And after that man, we had it made.
    Am		    F
The normal life was later-ade.


INTERLUDE:
C, Em, Am, F...


VERSE 2:
		C		    Em
Well I moved to Austin, he moved to LA after living in Seattle. 
	   Am			      F
I joined a funk band, he got all into heavy metal. 
	 C			   Em
It was a wild time. I did a lot of blotter. 
		 Am		 F
It was like some bad episode of "Welcome Back Kotter". 
	      C	    Em
I went out to LA to visit him.
	       Am			 F
But he was all messed up playing in some shitty band.
	 C		     Em 
Snorting heroin. He had like ten tatoos. 
	       Am		     F
We smoked some serious kind, drank a ton of booze. 
	 C		   Em
We joked around alot. We'd always say
      Am		    F
We've come so far since the good ol' days.


INTERLUDE:
C, Em, Am, F...


VERSE 3:
	 C			    Em
It was a blur but, I don't really remember much.
		     Am			      F
Just glad to get the hell out, I never liked LA too much. 
		C			Em
Austin was more laid back, more like my kind of town. 
       Am		 F
People kickin it, not so tightly wound. 
	      C			     Em
My bands kept breaking up, like they always do. 
       Am	       F
I kept getting by, and pulling through. 
	C				 Em
I got a phone call from Jim one night in ninety-eight
	  Am			   F	
He didn't sound so good he said 'I need a break'.
	    C			 Em
He said can I come to stay for a week or so.
 		  Am       F
I said 'That'd be cool. No problem bro.'
	    C		 Em
But I never spoke to him again after that.
	Am				 F
I got a call from this guy in Jim's band Aftermath.
	     C				Em
He said that Jim had died sometime last week or so.
       Am		       F
In his apartment, some kind of overdose.
		    C			      Em
The police couldn't find his folks, and maybe did I know 
	     Am			       F
How to get a hold of them and I said I did and so 
		C		      Em
They called his parents up and it was shitty but,
	      Am		F
I went to the funeral and I was all fucked up.
	   C		       Em
And I felt responsible in some weird ol' way.
	      Am			    F
But there was nothing I could do, there was nothing I could say.


INTERLUDE:
C, Em, Am, F (x2)...


VERSE 4:
	   C		    Em
That's the way it goes when fate is king.
	  Am			F
You can't tell the world how to do its thing.
	     C				    Em
You can just hold on tight, let it take you for a ride.
    Am				   F
And maybe you might make it to the other side.
	    C			    Em
Well in the end I guess, it doesn't matter so.
  Am			   F
I guess I'll tell you everything I know now.
