About this tab version
Chord timing is odd, take some time to work it out by listening to the song. Sounds accurate when played. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[INTRO] 
Am 

[VERSE]
             Am
Between the cold drinks in the freezer
         F
And the latest tabloid rags
          D
A voice screams over the music
          F
"Put the money in the bag!"


[VERSE]
       Am
No one ever hears his reason
       F
No one ever hears his name
              D
This is all happening right now
           F
Less than five miles away


[VERSE]
   Am
A shifty fortune teller
    F
Communion with the dead
D
Lying about the astral plane
            F
So she can keep her children fed


[VERSE]
                 Am
Listening to a mother sick with cancer
           F
Wondering what she's gonna say
                D
This is all happening right now
           F
Less than five miles away
              D
This is all happening right now
           F
Less than five miles away


[VERSE]
            Am
There's a stranger in the bushes
                      F
Looking through the windows of a home
     D
At a woman from the movies
              F
That's been living there alone


[VERSE]
              Am
She's home at seven in the evening
             F
He sees the code punched in the gate
               D
This is all happening right now
           F
Less than five miles away
             D
This is all happening right now


[BRIDGE]
        G                           C
And it all looks so pretty from a distance
           F
How we're living out this story that we tell
     G                                 C
Baby we were both designed out in the cosmos
           F
As just a way of asking questions about itself

G    C    F  


[VERSE]
              Am 
You know the great writer that left us
          F
Well his house is still around
         D
Like an old dead volcano
       F
That sleeps over the town


[VERSE]
               Am 
They're gonna turn it into condos
            F
They'll be done by New Year's Day
              D
This is all happening right now
           F
Less than five miles away
             D                      F
This is all happening right now

Alternate verse 2 occasionally sung in shows (same chords, same timings, different words) :
A second-rate contender
In the middle of round four
Deflecting every combination
until he just can't anymore
He feels his knees starting to buckle
he hears the numbers one through eight
this is all happening right now
less than five miles away
