I heard that you went out last night and you looked beautiful 
                            G*         C*          G*         C*
Just like a bat beneath the moonlight. I stayed home took a Vicodin
G(PM)          C(PM)          Am(PM)      C(PM)          G        C  Am
Sometimes it's all that I can do when I think about the president 
Am      C              G         C Am  C    
How did he become the president? 
G      C         Am      C                 
And I stayed awake for a day or two, 
G           C             Am             C
I thought about the world, drank gin and watched the news 
G          C         Am          C         G    
And there are some things I'll never understand 
G     C               Am         C       G C   Am C
Why a country needs a God, and a woman needs a man 

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

G        C               Am        C
And I scratch these words into a black notebook 
G             C         Am            C
I wrote your name on top I knew you'd never look 
G      C    Am               C        
I tried my best to fight the atmosphere 
G             C             Am                C         F
To think the happy thoughts, that leave the phone lines clear 
F    C              Am            G(PM)    
I see Arizona stars from here but Peter Pan is miles away 

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

                  F                                        
This is the last straw she said
                            C(PM)
And I won't wait for you forever 
                          Am(PM)      
While you run around like JFK
                                     G(PM)
You watched that poor girl waste the best years of her life 
                        F(PM)                         F      
And I'll be damned if I am going out, I will not go out that way

C  Am  G  F 

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