Standard Tuning, CAPO 4

[Chorus]

Em            C                   D
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    G      D         Em
Got out of bed at all

            C                 D
The morning rain clouds up my window

    G       D         Em
And I can't see at all

         C                D
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         G       D         Em
But your picture on my wall

        C               D
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     G      D   Em
It's not so bad

(The whole song continues in that chord progression)

Em            C                   D
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    G      D         Em
Got out of bed at all

            C                 D
The morning rain clouds up my window

    G       D         Em
And I can't see at all

         C                D
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         G       D         Em
But your picture on my wall

        C               D
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     C
It's not so bad


[Verse 1]

Em                     C                           D
Dear Slim, I wrote you, but you still ain't callin

                                 G                    D   Em
I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom

                               C                             D
I sent two letters back in Autumn, you must not have got 'em

                                      G              D         
There probably was a problem with the post office or somethin'

Em                                 C                     D
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em

                        G                  D        Em
But anyway, what's been up man, how's your daughter?

                                            C
My girlfriend's pregnant too, I'm bout to be a father

            D                                  C
If I have a daughter, guess what I'm a call her

                      Em
I'm a name her Bonnie

                        C
I read about your Uncle Ronnie too, I'm sorry

 D                                G                    D        Em
I had a friend kill himself over some b**** who didn't want him

                                       C                         D
I know you probably hear this every day, but I'm your biggest fan

                       G                           D     Em
I even got that underground s*** that you did with Skam

                          C                             D
I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man

                              G                D             Em
I like that s*** you did with Rawkus too, that s*** was phat

                    C
Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back

D                               C          
Just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan, this is Stan


[Chorus]

Em            C                   D
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    G      D         Em
Got out of bed at all

            C                 D
The morning rain clouds up my window

    G       D         Em
And I can't see at all

         C                D
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         G       D         Em
But your picture on my wall

        C               D
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     G      D   Em
It's not so bad


[Verse 2]

     Em                               C
Dear Slim, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have a chance,

D                              G                                   Em
I ain't mad, I think it's just f***** up that you don't answer fans

                            C
If you didn't wanna talk to me outside your concert

           D                                   G             D
You didn't have to, but you could've signed an autograph for Matthew

         Em                             C
That's my little brother man, he's only six years old

                 D
We waited in the blistering cold for you

    G                  D            Em    
For four hours and you just said no

                                 C
That's pretty s****y man, you're like his f***ing idol

   D                                  C                       Em
He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do

                        C
I ain't that mad though, I just don't like being lied to

      C                       G               D
Remember when we met in Denver, you said if I write you

          Em                           C
You would write back, see I'm just like you in a way

                D
I never knew my father neither

           G                  D                Em
He used to always cheat on my mom and beat her

                            C
I can relate to what you're saying in your songs

          D                          G               D    
So when I have a s****y day, I drift away and put em on

              Em                                 C
Cause I don't really got s*** else, so that s*** helps when I'm depressed

D                           C
I even got a tattoo of your name across the chest

Em                             C
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds

         D                            G             D
Its like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me

        Em                              C
See everthing you say is real, and I respect you cause you tell it

       D                               G              D
My girlfriend's jealous, because I talk about you 24/7

Em                                     C
But she don't know you like I know you slim, no one does

D                                         G                 D
She don't know what it was like for people like us growin' up

          Em                               C
You gotta call me man, I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose

          D
Sincerely yours, Stan, p.s.

C
We should be together too


[Chorus]

Em            C                   D
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    G      D         Em
Got out of bed at all

            C                 D
The morning rain clouds up my window

    G       D         Em
And I can't see at all

         C                D
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         G       D         Em
But your picture on my wall

        C               D
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     C
It's not so bad


[Verse 3]

Em                       C                    D
Dear Mr I'm-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans

                              G                 D
This'll be the last package I ever send your a**

              Em
It's been six months and still no words

           C
I don't deserve it

                  D
I know you got my last two letters

               G                     D
I wrote the addresses on them perfect

Em                                    C
So this is my cassette I'm sending you, I hope you hear it

    D                               G               D
I'm in the car right now, I'm doin' 90 on the freeway

Em                           C                      D
Hey Slim, I drank a fifth of vodka, dare me to drive?

                           C
You know that song by Phil Collins, In the Air of the Night

Em                                     C
About that guy who could've saved that other guy from drowning

    D                           G                         D
But didn't, but Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him

Em                                     C
That's kinda how this is, you could've rescued me from drowning

         D                        G            D
Now it's too late, I'm on a 1,000 downers now, I'm drowsy

Em                          C
And all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call

D                                    G           D
I hope you know I ripped all of your pictures off my wall

Em                           C                          D                
I love you Slim, we could've been together, think about it

                    C                                           Em
You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it

                               C
And when you dream, I hope you can't sleep and you scream about it

D                             G                  D                Em
I hope your conscience eats at you and you can't breathe without me

             C
See Slim, shut up b****, I'm trying to talk

D                       G                       D
Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screamin' in the trunk

Em                                            C
But I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you

D                                      G                 D      Em
Cause if she suffocates, she'll suffer more, then she'll die too

               C                               D
Well, gotta go, I'm almost under the bridge now

                  C
Oh s***, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this s*** out?


Em C D C (2x)


[Chorus]

Em            C                   D
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    G      D         Em
Got out of bed at all

            C                 D
The morning rain clouds up my window

    G       D         Em
And I can't see at all

         C                D
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         G       D         Em
But your picture on my wall

        C               D
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     C
It's not so bad


[Verse 4]

Em                                    C
Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner, but I've just been busy

D                                     G                  D
You say your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?

Em                                   C
Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that

              D
And here's an autograph for your brother

  G           D               Em
I wrote it on this Starter cap

                   C
I'm sorry I didn't see you at the show, I must've missed you

D                           G             D               Em
Don't think I did that s*** intentionally just to dis you

                             C                                      D
But what's that s*** you said about you like to cut your wrists too?

                                  D
I say that s*** just clownin' dog

                             Em
C'mon, how f***ed up is you?

                             C
You got some issues, Stan, I think you need some counseling 

D                                      G                  D         Em
To keep your a** from bouncin' off the walls when you get down some

                              C
And what's this s*** about us meant to be together?

D                                  G                    D     Em
That type of s*** will make me not want us to meet each other

                            C
I really think you and your girlfriend need each other

D                                   G
Or maybe you just need to treat her better

D                 Em                          C
I hope you get to read this letter, I hope it reaches you in time
                
           D                                  C
Before you hurt yourself, I think that you'll be doin just fine

         Em                              C
If you relax a little, I'm glad that I inspire you, but Stan

    D                           G                D             Em
Why are you so mad? Try to understand, that I do want you as a fan

                         C
I just don't want you to do some crazy s***

            D                                G              D            Em
I seen this one s*** on the news a couple of weeks ago that made me sick

                                  C
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge

            D                                   G                 D
And had his girlfriend in his trunk and she was pregnant with his kid

           Em                            C
And in the car they found a tape, didn't say who it was to

        D                            C              Em
Come to think about it, his name was, it was you...
