Here's a B side that was recorded for Everything in Transit. It's one of my 
favorite Jack songs. Hope you like it =]

Verse 1:

G   C              Am            C            G
I heard that you went out last night
                                 C                Am
And you looked beautiful, 
               C                             G                   
Just like a bat beneath the moonlight
C               Am                 C
I stayed home, took a Vicadin
G                         C                    Am
Sometimes it's all that I can do 
               C                             G              C
When I  think about the president
                                            G                  C           G
How did he become the president?

            C                  Am         C                     G
And I stayed awake for a day or two
                  C                          
I thought about the world
Am                       C                            G
Drank gin and watched the news
                     C                 Am                 C                    G
And there are some things that I'll never understand
                 C                       Am
Why a country needs a God
                C          G    C       Am  C        F
And a woman nee-ds a ma -an

Chorus:
                   C                           F
And you never write me letters
                   C                        F
And you never sent my sweaters
                    Am                                         G
So I could stay warm when I was without you
G                                             G
Without you I don't sleep

                  C             Am           C           G           C            Am             C
Just a dream

Verse 2:

G                            C               Am            C
And I scratched these words into a black notebook
G                     C                      Am                   C                 G
I wrote your name on top, I knew you'd never look
            C            Am               C                            G
And i tried my best to fight the atmosphere
                    C                           Am             C                             Am
To think the happy thoughts that leave the phone lines clear

       F                      C
I see Arizona stars from here
     G                                           F
But Peter Pan is miles away


Chorus:

                   C                           F
And you never write me letters
                   C                        F
And you never sent my sweaters
                    Am                                  G
So I could stay warm when I was without you
G                                            F
Without you I don't have
                           C                          Am
A place that's safe from all the monsters
                              G
That hide in my head
                                    F
And sing me to sleep, sleep
                      G     G       Am
This is the last straw
                                    F
This is the last straw, She said


Bridge:

                                             C
Well I won't wait for you forever
                                         Am
When you run around like JFK
                                                         G
And watch that poor girl waste the best years of her life 
                                           F
And I'll be damned if I am going out, I will not go out that way


Instrumental:

C       Am        G         F


Chorus:

                   C                           F
And you never write me letters
                   C                        F
And you never sent my sweaters
                         Am                                  G
So you could stay warm when I was gone
G                                            F
Without you I don't have
                           C                          Am
A place that's safe from all the monsters
                              G
That hide in my head
                                    F
And keep me 'till dawn
                                G  
I think this is the last straw
