(These chords are implied throughout) although the earlier version of the song he

B :------3-----3-----3---3--|------3-----3-----3---3-----------------|

Verse 1
     	            G			      Bm
Then the rains they came, from thick unbroken clouds
        	       G          	        Bm
And washed out all the names, from tired little towns
		    Am            Am/G       Am/F#
Yeah summer's gone away, to some California coast
    Am/E           D
Hey I don't mind I never saw around much anyway

        	 G			          Bm
But I cannot be still, it's coursing through my veins
        	      G			               Bm
The songs that never live, the songs that stayed the same
		            Am                                  Am/G
And they turned around the truth, and they knocked you off your feet
         Am/F#             Am                               D
Yeah the world was on your back and you wouldn't carry that weight


Chorus
Play these notes on the low E & A strings, it's a typical Ian walkup in G.
              E  F#    G  B  A
	     "captured their hearts"

       G
Oh and Caroline you should
                    A7
Have captured their hearts while you still could
        D                      D                               C
But you threw it away, did you really think that you'd live forever?

Caroline


Verse 3

	            G                              Bm
And one by one they fell, barely clinging to their names
               G                           Bm
Technology overflowing, flowing from their brains
                     Am       Am7/G           Am7/F#
Till nobody knew the words, nobody knew to sing
  Am7/E        D
Nobody had the time to talk about it anyway

Chorus

       G
Oh and Caroline you should
                    A7
Have captured their hearts while you still could
        D                      D                               C
But you threw it away, did you really think that you'd live forever?
    Em
Caroline

Bridge
Play these bass notes on the low E & A strings to walk into the bridge, similar to the chorus:

     E    F#  G  B A
Yeah they all just sold

     E    F#  G  B Am       D            Em
Yeah they all just sold you down the line
           Am             D              Em       D         Am
And you're looking for forgiveness every time you shut your eyes
              Em (or Am)D            Am
Oh but you're faded and old did they never tell you

Instrumental
G  C  G  C

Can't remember this off the top of my head, maybe
C   C/B Am G   D(?)
Oh, oh, oh,oh, yeah

Chorus

       G
Oh and Caroline you should
                    A7
Have captured their hearts while you still could
        D                      D                               C
But you threw it away, did you really think that you'd live forever?
    G   C  G  C
Caroline
		 D
You should just throw it away
       C                        D
Do you really think that you'll live forever

Outro just alternates between G & C
