INTRO / THE VERSE WHERE SHE CHEATED ON HIM

E

        E
So the wind that blows across your room,
  A       
Carried cheap perfume onto your dresser,
                E                              
It rained for jewelery and for credit cards,
      A                      E
Two tickets to a film I don't remember,
      A                          
One day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phone,
                        E
To find I've been turned over,
     A
You grab that piece of gold,
                                       E
Only to find that the smell has taken over,
                      A
And all the things you had,
                  B7
They aren't the same
              E
As what you hold


          E
Now I'm standin' in a room,
                     A
That's filled with older folks,
                     E  
They're pleading baby listen,
         E            
And I scream as loud as anyone,
           A
But when asked to make a point,
           E
I tend to whisper
     A
Now highways turn to tidal waves,
                                            E
And they're asking me to export all of your insecurities,
           A
But that wind that blows across your room, it's gonna set the sails,
                     E    B7
And send me back to you, ooh,



CHORUS - THE MELLOW ONE
E
 Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A
 Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
    E
 And I think, I could make better use,
A
 Of my time on land,
       E
 I'll drink less,

 Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A
 Warm kiss instead of a cold goodbye
F#
 I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A
 Hey I'm doing all right

THE VERSE WHERE HE RECOUNTS A DARK CHILDHOOD MEMORY

         E                     A
It's a shame what your father did,
         E                   A        B
To your brothers head, he smashed it with the
 E     A    E A B
Telephone
         E                   A                   
Your mother got scared and locked the door,
           E              A    B     E       A 
You were only four, but Lord, you remember it,
C#m B                A         
    So now you're scared of love
                                                             E
I'm here to tell you love's not some fucking blood on the receiver
           A
Love is speaking in code
                                      E
It's an inside joke, love is coming home


CHORUS - THE NOT MELLOW ONE

E
 Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A
 Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
    E
 And I think, I could make better use,
A
 Of my time on land,
       E
 I'll drink less,

 Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A
 Warm kiss, Instead of a cold goodbye
F#
 I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A
 Hey I


THE VERSE WHERE HE'S OVER HER

                  E
Yeah I'm doing alright
                      A
Yeah I'm doin' just fine
             F#                            A
An' if she seems as lonely as me, Let her sink
                  E
Yeah I'm doin' alright,
                     A
Yeah I'm doin' just fine,
            F#
An' if she seems as lonely as me, let her,
  A
Sink, you let her, sink, well let her!
