Song 1: Homesick
Capo 6


[Verse]

Em       D       C         G/B
I got misled, mistook, discard.
Em       D      C
Anything that I said
Em          D       C        G/B G
I'm not the type to call you up drunk,
    G             D/F#    Em
But I've got some lies to tell.
Em            D        C        G/B
She hates her work but loves to flirt.
Em               D         C
Shame, she don't work with me.
Em          D              C         G/B G
She gets uptight and don't like when I'm­ gal.
     G             D/F#  Em
But, she won't let on to me.

[Chorus]

       Em       D       C
I said I'm only looking out for you,
              Em      D        C
she said It's obvious that's a lie.
     Em     D        C
But, I only ever put out for you,
             Em      D        C
You know Its obvious you don't try.


[Verse]

Em       D        C       G/B
I got mistook and took dissent.
         Em        D          C
and it's not as if you didn't notice
    Em         D     C     G/B     G
But I tried to steer clear of this place,
    G             D/F#       Em
And wound up with nothing to show for it.
             Em        D         C         G/B
She said you never got that from me.
             Em        D         C         G/B      G
She said you never got that from me.
             Em        D         C         G/B      G
She said you never got that from me.
               G        D/F#      Em
But I said you got that look from me.

[Chorus]

       Em       D       C
I said I'm only looking out for you,
              Em      D        C
she said It's obvious that's a lie.
     Em     D        C
But, I only ever put out for you,
             Em      D        C
You know Its obvious you don't try.

      G      D        C
I said I'm only looking out for you,
              Em      D        C
she said It's obvious that's a lie.
     G      D        C
But, I only ever put out for you,
             Em      D        C
You know Its obvious you don't try.


[Solo]


Em       D       C        G/B
I got misled, mistook, discard.
Em       D      C
Anything that I said
Em          D       C        G/B  G
I'm not the type to call you up drunk,
    G             D/F#    Em
But I've got some lies to tell.



Song 2: Kathleen
No Capo


[Verse 1]

Em            D
You're simpatico
      Bm                      A
And of all the lift homes and all the mixed feelings
Em            D
You're cuts above
        Bm                     A
And you don't own worries or a chest full of heartache


[Verse 2 ]

Em      D
Yes, I know
       Bm                      A
That I'll never work out exactly how you're thinking
Em           D                       Bm            A
But let me know, when I'm needed home


[Pre-Chorus]

        G          D         A
And I'd come
        Bm              A      G         D         A
You can leather me with your lips


[Chorus]

Bm
I've gotta give it to you
G           A
You give me problems
Bm                        G       A
When you are not in the mood

Bm
I've gotta give it to you
G           A
You give me problems
Bm                     G       A
And made me give into you

Bm                         G        A
Our dealer hates me you know
Bm                          G         A
He used to see her but she sold
Bm                      G         A
Him off on down the river

Bm            G     A


[Verse 3]

Em           D
It's impractical
      Bm                            A
To go out and catch a death with a dress fit for the summer
Em     D
So you don't
    Bm                        A
Instead you call me up with a head full of filth


[Verse 4]

Em      D
Yes, I know
     Bm               A
I'll never acquiesce anything you're thinking
Em               D                   Bm              A
But let me know, when I'm needed home


[Pre-Chorus]

        G          D         A
And I'd come
        Bm              A      G         D         A
You can leather me with your lips


[Chorus]

Bm
I've gotta give it to you
G           A
You give me problems
Bm                        G       A
When you are not in the mood

Bm
I've gotta give it to you
G           A
You give me problems
Bm                     G       A
And made me give into you

Bm                         G        A
Our dealer hates me you know
Bm                          G         A
He used to see her but she sold
Bm                      G         A
Him off on down the river

Bm            G     A


[Outro]

D       Bm       A

Song 3: Cocoon
Capo 3


[Intro]  C/G , C2/G ,  C/G    (basically just pull off, hammer on)


[Verse 1] (he palm mutes the top two strings a bit):


       Em
I fell straight
          G
Into your arms
       C/G
Like a drunk
           G
Who’s been on it
    Em
All morning.
        G
And the sun’s up
       C/G               G
And my head’s fucked.
    Em
And immediately
  G
I grabbed you
       C/G
You go all red
         G
Like the first time
                   Em         G
I love it when you do that
                        C/G         G
God, I love it when you do that.


[Pre-Chorus] (palm muted chords):

I remember when we
Em         C/G         G       D/A
   Swapped names and I thought maybe
Em       C/G      G          D/A
   You’d stay and try to out-drink me
Em      C/G    G     D/A
   Your friends, all hated it!

Em      C/G    G     D/A (mute D after one strum)


[Chorus]

               C/G    G
Fuck it if they talk
               Em                D/A
Fuck it if they try and get to us
                   C/G      G
Cause I’d rather go blind
             Em     D/A
Than let you down.


[Verse 2] (palm muting of top two strings):

Em
I cocoon
            G
‘Round your shoulders
            C/G
When you’re half cut
           G
And you’re frozen
                           Em         G
And you’ve got that visible breathing
                    C/G        G
You’re depending on me again.


[Pre-Chorus] (palm muted chords):

I remember when we
Em         C/G         G       D/A
   Swapped names and I thought maybe
Em       C/G      G          D/A
   You’d stay and try to out-drink me
Em      C/G    G     D/A
   Your friends, all hated it!

Em      C/G    G     D/A (mute D after one strum)


[Chorus]

               C/G    G
Fuck it if they talk
               Em                D/A
Fuck it if they try and get to us
                   C/G      G
Cause I’d rather go blind
             Em     D/A
Than let you down.

               C/G    G
Fuck it if they talk
                Em                D/A
Fuck it if they try and get to us
                    C/G    G
Cause I’d rather go blind
             Em     D/A
Than let you down.


[Bridge]

                 C/G
And if you wanna shot down and pose as positive
Em
  Hide smoking from relatives and
C/G
  Rest on me,
                    Em  Em7  Em  (hammer on to Em7 and pull off again to Em)
Honey, that’s alright!
           C/G
And if you wanna act more drunk than usual
   Em
To help you get away with more than
C/G
  Rest on me,
Em
Honey, that’s alright!
D
Honey, that’s alright!

C/G -> C2/G , Em -> Em7 , C/G -> C2/G , Em       (watch the video at 2:44 to see how he does this,
                                               it's basically just pull off and hammer ons)


[Chorus]

               C/G    G
Fuck it if they talk
                Em                D/A
Fuck it if they try and get to us
                    C/G    G
Cause I’d rather go blind
             Em     D/A
Than let you down.

I remember when we
C/G                 G
  Swapped names and I thought maybe
Em               D/A
  You’d stay and try to out-drink me
C/G           G             Em    D/A
  Your friends, all hated it!

Oh but babe,

You know I've tried and failed,

                  C        G
Babe, it's been a rough night
Em          Em/C          G
Narcissistic but fuck it I'm calling
                   C    G
I need to know you're alright

     Em      Em/C    G
You see now I found a lover
              C           G
Who can be in peace with my mother
     Em    Em/C         G
And I ain't ever letting her go
C - D


[Chorus]

       C         Em
'Cause all I wanna know
       C         Em-Em11 x3
Is just how far you wanna go

G                  C
I wanna make it my business
Em               D
I wanna tolerate drunk you, honey
G                C
I wanna make it my problem
Em                D

C
If you've been having doubts at all
Em                    D
Then you can come and mess my bed up
C
And I can change your marital status
Em                    D

C
If you've been having doubts at all
Em                    D
If you've been having doubts at all
C
If you've been having doubts at all
Em                    D

G                  C
I wanna make it my business
    Em            D
I wanna tolerate drunk you, honey
G              C
I wanna make it my problem
Em                  D
I wanna make it my problem



Song 8: 26
Capo 1



[Intro] Gm F Cm x2

[Verse 1]
Gm                                    F
I’ll come based on facts like she’ll be there
Cm
Making self-control leave me

Gm
And she’ll stand this out in bricks
          F
To the rioters

[Chorus]
          Cm
I can’t believe you’re 26
        D7
Without having a few in my fist
      F                                      Cm
Cause you’ve got a mind that is so hell bent on
F                                 Cm
Fixing me up before I get my coat off
F                                          Cm
You with those hands that are so hell bent on
F                                        Cm
Making a mess to suggest you’d think something

Gm F Cm

[Verse 2]
Gm                                         F
 I’ll come based on facts like we’re always screaming
                     Cm
But I still love you tearing me up at the seams
  Gm

And she’ll stand this out in bricks
          F
To the rioters

[Chorus]
          Cm
I can’t believe you’re 26
        D7
Without having a few in my fist
      F                                      Cm
Cause you’ve got a mind that is so hell bent on
F                                 Cm
Fixing me up before I get my coat off
F                                          Cm
You with those hands that are so hell bent on
F                                        Cm
Making a mess to suggest you’d think something

[Bridge]
Gm
You see, I don’t know why
I know now
I would not, have been less tempted
   F7
To get you on top
                             Gm
Touch of pace, I’d have been good to you babe

[Chorus 2]
F                                      Cm
You’ve got a mind that is so hell bent on
F                                 Cm
Fixing me up before I get my coat off
      F                                          Cm
Cause you with those hands that are so hell bent on
F                                        Cm
Making a mess to suggest you’d think something
F                                          Cm
You with those hands that are so hell bent on
F                                        Cm
Making a mess to suggest you’d think something



Song 9: Rango
Capo 2



[Intro]

C#m       E   (x2)

[Verse 1]
        C#m
Darling I’m done for once
                     E
And as soon as I get outta here
          C#m
I plan on coming back for nothing
                       E
But then again there’s you

[Verse 2]
                  C#m
And although this town does flaunt
                           E
All the stuff you need to feel at home
           C#m
I plan on taking from it nothing
                       E
But then again there’s you

[Chorus]
          A          B      C#m
You see, Abby she’s got to wait
          A         B      E
Until she gets you on your own
           A         B       C#m
So she can make you make mistakes
             A        B        E
Then you can offer to take her home
                          C#m
And it’s not like I don’t miss it none
                        E
But the quicker I drink more in here
            C#m
The quicker I lose track of you
                              E
But I know you wouldn’t want that

[Verse 3]
                  C#m
And although this town does pluck
                            E
Much thicker stories than I care to talk
C#m
You you’ve fought them in style
                         E
And I’ll always love you for that

[Chorus]
          A          B      C#m
You see, Abby she’s got to wait
           A        B      E
Until she gets you on your own
           A         B       C#m
So she can make you make mistakes
             A        B        E
Then you can offer to take her home
               A            B      C#m
And now she’s wearing that top you love
           A         B    E
And she’s topping it all off
    A           B         C#m
By acting like somethings up
           A           B         E
She always knew how to pull the strings

[Instrumental]
C#m       E   (x4)

[Chorus]
          A          B      C#m
You see, Abby she’s got to wait
           A        B      E
Until she gets you on your own
           A         B       C#m
So she can make you make mistakes
             A        B        E
Then you can offer to take her home
               A            B      C#m
And now she’s wearing that top you love
           A         B    E
And she’s topping it all off
    A           B         C#m
By acting like somethings up
           A           B         E
She always knew how to pull the strings

[Outro]
C#m       E   (x2)

[Intro] Em, C, G, D (x2)

[Verse 1]
Em       C           G             D
Give me some madness I can get off on
            Em     C
I want to endorse you
                G     D
I want you to exhaust me

Em       C            G              D
Give me some mindsets I can rub off on
                     Em
'Cause when you act placid
C                      G
You know that I can't stand it

[Chorus]
Em      C             G                 D       Em
Whoever you're mixing your drinks with is dying to
C              G
Go to town on you
Em      C             G                D        Em
Whoever you're mixing your drinks with is dying to
C              G
Get it out of you

[Verse 2]
Em       C               G              D
Give me some assumptions I can make of you
                     Em
'Cause you've gotten lazy
C                G
Go ahead, girl, frustrate me
Em           C          G             D
And give me some inglorious foot too gun
                   Em
And come back and find me
C             G         D
With her entwined round me

[Chorus]
Em      C             G                 D       Em
Whoever you're mixing your drinks with is dying to
C              G
Go to town on you
Em      C             G                D        Em
Whoever you're mixing your drinks with is dying to
C              G
Get it out of you



Song 11: Tyrants
Capo 1



[Intro]

 Em   D   C   Am


[Verse 1]

Em
Eyes rolled back guess we were living fast
                  C
Where did you go, yeah where did you go?
                 Am    Em
Your eyes go to show, that it was so rare to see you sober
                D                       C
And so the streetlights would carry us home

Em
And I spent my nights trying to get a grip of you
D                                             C
And I did my best to get my hands under your jacket
           D         Am
So we could make a racket
Em
But your divine ribs would help break mine
             C              Am        D
We hit the ground so let's hit the ground


[Chorus]

             Em * D * C * G *    C
(She said) nothing's alright, believe me
          D *   C *  G *        D *    C
I said I won't feel the same in the mornin'
            Em * D * C * G *          G
(She said) nothing's alright, we're leavin
       D *   C *     G *     D *     G
And I won't feel the same in the mornin'


[Instrumental]

 Em   D   C   Am


[Bridge]

Em  D    G    C    Am
Tyrants help build us
Em          D      G         C
They won't mind throwin us away
[x4]


[Instrumental]

 Em   D   C   Am
