to pick up.


Capo: 3rd fret

F: X3201X
C: X0321X
C: 32000X


Intro: F C C F


F                        C
There's rumbling in the head again
C                       F
Inside the head there lived a brain
F                        C
Inside the brain there lived a dream
      C                  F
That shot round like a laser beam
F                    C
Along nerve endings and synapses
C                   F
Past the room for memory lapses
F               C
Bought about by alcohol
      C              F
That causes all the cell collapses


F C C F


F                         C
Now, that dream's not the only one
      C                F
I had plenty more when I was young
F                C
But I grew up in a big hurry
     C               F
And then one day I start to worry that
          C               C                  F
I'm gonna be a goner before I read all the books I wanna
F                           C
If I plant a tree now it'll be fully grown
      C              F
Long after I'm just dust and bone and
F       C              F         C
Now I can't sleep, it's already 3 AM
       F            C               C                  F
And Im lying here dividing sheep by the square root of ten


F C C F


F                  C
So I gave away my clothes to charity
    C            F
I turned off my TV for clarity
F                    C
And somedays I still envy those
    C              F
Walking around wearing my clothes


              C                 C         F
So I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
      C                        C           F
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
       C                     C       F
Gonna make my plan when the morning breaks
       C                   C          F
But I just don't know how long it'll take


F C C F


F                           C
I keep hearing voices and ringing phones
          C                     F
But Im staring down a highway all alone
F                            C
With just the company of my stomach rumble
       C           F
And I feel OK, it makes me humble
F                   C
Without a load that I must carry
      C                   F
Or a bump in the road to make to tarry
F                              C                      C       
        F
Just a pile of ashes from the miles I've burned and everything Ive learned

F
What have I learned?

               F                 C
Don't walk in front of cars or behind horses
      C                       F
Cats don't drink milk out of flying saucers
F
Green means go
C
Yellow: go faster
C                 F
Red means stop or financial disaster
F                    C                         C          F
And don't ever underestimate the fitness of a determined Jehovahs witness
F                    C                     C               F
And don't ever ever take for granted what grew from every kiss you planted
F                           C
If a heart can break then a heart can feel
       C                  F
It's to know that you're alive and real
F                           C
Like the rattlin, bouncin little white ball
       C          F
Not a number on a roulette wheel
F            C              F                C
And hair it turns grey and skin it turns to leather
         F               C                 C          F
But the best thing about growing old is we all do it together


              C                 C         F
So I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
      C                        C           F
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
       C                     C       F
Gonna make my plan when the morning breaks
       C                   C          F
But I just don't know how long it'll take


F C C F


F                                       C
They say that a love that's shared is a love that's carried
        C                        F
All the way to the church where you'll be married
F                                 C                C          
          F
And it's a long old way down the aisle to alter and you don't have the time to falter
F                 C
Love will always come and go I hope
      C                 F
But sometimes love goes up in smoke
F                               C
And you're left there with the greedy ghost
     C             F
And just when you need them most
F                          C
Some of your friends have disappeared
     C               F
And others started acting weird
            F                        C
And you’re left on your bed with an awful feeling
              C                        F
Till you've learned by heart all the cracks in the ceiling
F                      C                      C               
  F
And you think Oh god I just related to that awful love song I always hated
F                    C                     C                F
And the past it all becomes distorted like it was broke before you bought it
F                    C
Remember, you're the one who paid
           C              F
Pulled the pin out of the hand grenade
F                  C
It's up to you to leave your room
     C              F
But don't forget to bring your spade


           C                   C         F
So you can plant a tree you'll never see grow
      C                        C         F
Put a seed in the ground where no one'll know
      C             C          F
Gonna make my plan forever to roam
      C                   C      F
Gonna feed my nan in the nursing home
      C                        C       F
Gonna make that plan when the morning breaks
      C                   C           F
But I just don't know how long It'll take
