         A                        E
they say taylor was a good girl, never one to be late
 Fm#              D             A     E  Fm#  D
complain, express ideas in her brain
A                           E
working on the night shift, passing out the tickets,
       Fm#                  D                        A E Fm# D
youre gonna have to pay her if you want to park here
      A                        E
well mommys little dancer has quite a little secret
Fm#                          D                 A E Fm# D
working on the streets now, never gonna keep it
     A                      E
its quite an imposition and now shes only wishing
      Fm#                    D                   A  E  Fm#
that she would have listened to the words they said
poor taylor

A            E             Fm#   D              A
she(HE) just wanders around, unaffected by
    E            Fm#  D                   A
the winter winds and she'll(he'll) pretend that
            E            Fm#  D             A
shes(he's) somewhere else, so far and clear
      E             Fm# 
about two thousand miles from here

A             E                     Fm#     D
peter patrick pitter patters on the window
    A             E            Fm#      D
but sunny silhouette wont let him in
A                  E                        Fm#      D
poor old petes got nothing because hes been falling
         A          E          Fm#      D
somehow sunny knows just where hes been
               A                          E        Fm#    D
he thinks that singing on sunday is gonna save his soul
A        E    Fm#         D
now that saturday is gone
A            E               Fm#    D
sometimes he thinks that hes on his way
          A    E  Fm#
but i can see 
that his break lights are on

        A               E   
such a tough enchilada filled up with nada
Fm#                    D                   A    E Fm# D
giving what she gotta give to get a dollar bill
        A                    E
used to be a limber chicken, times a been a ticking
Fm#                      D
nows shes finger licking to the man
         A                   E
with the money in his pocket flying in his rocket
Fm#                     D                A
only stopping by on his way to a better world

if taylor finds a better world

then taylor's gonna run away

Pretty sure the last two lines change it up and go C D F G (barre chords up the neck).
