Intro:  Riff (gtr only)  +  C - EmC


C                           Em
Cowboys on the road tonight crying in their sleep
           C                                         Em
If I was a hungry man with a gun in my hand and some promises to keep
              C                                    Em
Who wanted to change the world...what's as easy as murder?
                        C                           Em
It's all headlights and vapor trails...and Circle K killers


           G               D          C 
And I know I could look at anyone but you now
        G                     D          C 
I could fall into the eyes of anyone but you now


   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now
   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now


D                      G                      C
This is a list of what I should have been but I'm not
          D                         G                    C
This is a list of the things that I should have seen but I'm not seeing 
    D                        G                      C
The look in your eyes as his fingertips lit on your neck and it made you shiver
         D                         G                         C
I'm just turning away from where I should have been, because I am not
    Em     C       Em      C
Anything...oh...anything...oh...


    C                              Em
The president's in bed tonight but he can't get to sleep
              C                        Em
Cause all the cowboys on the radio are killers
                  C                                  Em
And I believe she loves you cause you never make her feel like anything
           C                                 Em
She said I wouldn't feel a thing...but I can feel, oh I can feel


           G               D          C 
And I know I could look at anyone but you now
        G                     D          C 
I could fall into the arms of anyone but you now


   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now
   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now


D                      G                      C
This is a list of what I should have been but I'm not
          D                         G                    C
This is a list of the things that I should have seen but I'm not seeing 
    D                        G                       C
The look in your eyes as his finger's unzipping your dress and it makes you shiver
         D                      G                        C
I'm just turning away from what I shouldn't see, because I am not
    Em     C       Em      C
Anything...oh...anything...oh...


Solo:  Em - C  (x2)


C                             Em
Everyone's in bed tonight but nobody can sleep
              C                                   Em
Cause all the satellites are watching through our windows
                     C                                      Em
She says she doesn't love me like she's acting, but it's as if she isn't talking
          C                                        Em
Cause Mr. Lincoln's head is bleeding, on the front row while she's speaking
       C                                Em
I said come on all you cowboys, all you blue-eyed baby boys 
        C                            Em
Come on all you dashing gentlemen of summer
                        C                       Em
I'll wait for you where Saturday's a memory and Sunday comes to gather me
         C                                      Em
Into the arms of god who'll welcome me, because I believe...Oh I believe...


           G               D          C 
And I know I could look at anyone but you now
        G                     D          C 
I could fall into the eyes of anyone but you now


   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now
   Em                                      C
So come on, come on, come on, oh...come on through now


D                      G                      C
This is a list of what I should have been but I'm not
          D                         G                    C
This is a list of the things that I should have seen but I'm not seeing 
    D             G    C
You look at me..............So please won't
    D            G         C
you look at me.......Cause I'm not seeing 
    D             G      C
you look at me........Oh I will make
    D            G        C
you look at me.......Or I am not
    Em     C       Em      C
Anything...oh...anything...no...

They chords are right, there's a capo on the 1st fret, which is said right at the start of the tab.
