********************************************************

Intro

E...F#m...E...G#m...Asus2...B...E

Verse

E
I'm not too good with numbers
         F#m                                 E         G#m 
I just count on knowing when I am high enough

Asus2
A mule with only two legs counting steps
B                                     E       G#m
towards dangling carrots; don't add up


Chorus

Asus2
I think about you when I can
B                                  C#m  C#m
And even sometimes when I can't, I do

Asus2
Once the driver knows you got good 
B                                   E
sense, he takes away the carrots, too


Interlude

E...F#m...E...G#m...Asus2...B...E


 
Verse

E
Getting all excited
           F#m                          E          G#m
Finding nothing that was never there before

Asus2
Is like bringing flowers to your mama
B                                     E         G#m
And tracking dog shit all over the floor

Chorus 

Asus2
Jesus made the flowers, but it took the
B                        C#m  C#m
dog to make the story good

Asus2
I think about you when I can
B                                          E
And sometimes when I don't, I probably should


Interlude

F#m...G#m...C#m...C#m (2x)


Verse

E
Tending bar in L.A. 
             F#m                           E    G#m
After dark, must be like mining cartoon gold

Asus2
Rocks that won’t cooperate and 
B                                       E    G#m
tools will drive you crazy, must get old

Chorus

Asus2
I think about you when I can
B                                        C#m  C#m
And sometimes when I do, I still get caught 

Asus2
Sitting in a bar in LA 
B                             Asus2 
After dark with my sunglasses on

Outro

E...F#m...E...G#m...Asus2...B...E
