Subject: CRD: 2000 Light Years Away - Green Day
Just got Kerplunk. 
Love it. 
This is the first song on it.
May not be in the right key.
Just the easiest way to play it. 
The minor chord threw me at first.
Didn't think Billy Joe knew them.

2000 Light Years Away

C          G      
I sit alone in my bedroom 
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding, my love is yearning

Am                   C  
I hold my breath and close eyes
   Am           G
And dream about her
F             G               C
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my mala kite so tight so
Never let go
Cause she 2000 light years away

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter, we laugh together
