[Verse]
C                              F           C
I woke up this mornin' still wearin' that tie
C                            G         C
The one with the hammer and sickle design
C                           F           C
Threw up all the pills my doctor prescribed
C                  G           C   C Fmaj7 C
And went out to fetch me some air

C                                    F            C  
The streets were so crowded with billboards and signs
C                                    G        C
Food trucks double parked in their parallel lines
C                               F         C
I thought about breakfast but settled on wine
C                    G      F
Always choose hunger over despair
F                     G            C    C7  
And what's possible over what's there

[Chorus]
F                          C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F            C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

[Harmonica]
C F C G7

[Verse]
C                      F             C
I sat down today in a high barber's chair
C                            G           C
To hear the town gossip and clean up my hair
C                            F           C 
He said she was seen on the bus station stairs
C                     G            C   C Fmaj7 C
With her suitcase threatenin' to walk 

C                                 F          C
Not sure how true it was but I'll hazard a guess
C                                 G          C
It's probably not more and it's probably not less
C                                F        C
If that college kid bookie was accepting bets
C                   G          F
The brackets would mostly be chalk
F                     G              C     C7
Yeah it's safe to assume that she's lost

[Chorus]
F                          C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F           C
Then she's gone and I've run out of time

[Harmonica]
C F C G7

[Verse]
C                               F            C
I can't be concerned with the state that I'm in
C                                  G        C
At the height of the scandal with vertigo spins
C                          F          C
Take every audition til I'm Errol Flynn
C                  G           C    C Fmaj7 C 
And bring it to life off the page

C                                F           C
And I'll get up tomorrow still wearin' that tie
C                               G            C 
The one with the skull and the crossbone designs
C                                F        C
If I'm asked if I miss her it's easy to lie
C                          G              F
In this world that's called more of the same
F                     G           C      C7
Yeah I wouldn't feel proud or ashamed

[Chorus]
  F                          C
'cause it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F            C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

Great tab, but the following lines should start on F instead of C: "And what's possible over what's there"Yeah it's safe to assume that she's lost""Yeah I wouldn't feel proud or ashamed"
