[Intro]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
          G       F#m#5  Em              D                C  
She was trapped in my peripheral vision like a long lost silhouette
 G       F#m#5    Em        D         C  
She was fine and dirty and curly and loose
          G          F#m#5  Em       D            C  
And from that sacred moment when the ends of our fingers met
          G          F#m#5    Em              D      C  
I felt a shiver go down into the heels of my cowboy boots
          G               F#m#5    Em  D    C  
See I was cornered like a rat in a prewar drugstore raid
           G          F#m#5  Em            D            C  
And I was ranting and raving and reciting the raunchy blues
          G      F#m#5   Em       D            C  
Yeah she knew a thing or two so I didn't have much to say
     G       F#m#5    Em       D          C  
She said I'm here my dear to deliver the good news

[Interlude]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
          G       F#m#5             Em          D           C  
You see I felt my life was already over but my moment had just begun
      G     F#m#5       Em       D           C  
So I saw my chance and I grabbed it as best as I could 
          G          F#m#5  Em       D            C  
So I lay down in her sweet smelling soulfully seductive quicksand
          G       F#m#5  Em       D                       C  
Though the ghost of romance stood behind me and might have given me a push
          G       F#m#5       Em               D         C  
We had no friends in common except mister and misses happenstance
           G       F#m#5    Em         D          C  
And I was talking more and more about movies and books
        G          F#m#5      Em         D          C  
Then I ran out of words and I asked her well can I have this dance
           G             F#m#5      Em        D            C  
And she thought that was funny and gave me a very, very special look

[Interlude]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
          G         F#m#5              Em              D         C  
Well the parade was passing and I was marching right behind the majorette
          G          F#m#5      Em               D          C  
She was throwing her baton much higher than the oldest oak tree
          G         F#m#5  Em       D                       C  
There was such symbolism I thought Christ had risen and I just had to forget
          G    F#m#5          Em       D          C  
And start over again from the day I stood at my daddy's knew
          G       F#m#5         Em              D         C  
When he said son there's a few things here that I gotta tell you
        G        F#m#5  Em              D       C  
And he bent down low to whisper in my childish ear
          G       F#m#5      Em            D            C  
When just then a squadron of jet fighters passed right over my head
          G       F#m#5  Em       D                       C  
And he said promise me boy you'll always keep that thought dear

[Interlude]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
        G      F#m#5       Em        D          C  
Well I guess I forgot more now than I'll ever remember
        G           F#m#5         Em         D          C  
About why you plant roses when a rainbow is just at its end 
        G               F#m#5    Em              D        C  
About why you shouldn't make any new plans till say mid-December 
         G   F#m#5 Em     D           C  
Keep the new year new as long as you can 
      G            F#m#5       Em            D          C  
Well here's to the crazies who make a dreary day worth living 
           G         F#m#5       Em         D               C  
See them laughing at phonies and frauds who believe so much in themselves 
        G      F#m#5                       Em       D            C  
Because among them I believe is where the magic it keeps itself well hidden 
             G       F#m#5      Em        D               C  
From those politicos who would steal the ring out of a church bell

[Interlude]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
          G       F#m#5     Em           D              C  
So I went back to her every night till I was totally addicted
          G       F#m#5     Em           D              C  
And she knew it too and believe me that was the very best part 
          G       F#m#5     Em           D         C  
Sure the newness gets old but she sure knew how to fix it 
    G       F#m#5     Em           D              C  
And soon I was sporting a good as new broken in head 
          G       F#m#5     Em           D              C  
Well we've fought about friends and we've argued about the weather 
          G       F#m#5     Em           D              C  
And whether or not we turn left or right when we go out at night 
          G       F#m#5    Em           D     C  
I've misused every sacred word that I could remember 
            G   F#m#5  Em        D           C  
Except for love cause that just wouldn't be right

[Interlude]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am

[Verse]
   G      F#m#5          Em      D               C  
On Romeo street they're selling bedroom sets and mirrors
     G      F#m#5          Em      D         C
And couches covered in the most luxurious velour 
         G     F#m#5           Em             D             C
And one day I lay down in the softness but I saw where the fear lives 
       G     F#m#5      Em           D        C
So I turned around and marched back onto the kiling floor 
     G      F#m#5     Em           D               C  
Yeah Romeo street is twisting its way out into the suburbs
       G        F#m#5         Em         D      C
But tonight the trade is all running the other way 
       G         F#m#5     Em            D           C
Its a madness my dear that keeps us out here in the moonlight 
       G        F#m#5     Em          D     C
Its a madness I hope that never ever goes away

[Outro]
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am
G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am     G  F#m#5  Em  D  C  Emaddb13  Am   G
