Jesse Malin - 'Brooklyn'
'The Fine Art of Self Destruction' 2002

Really nice song. The verses are all the same, just E to A. And I've only written 
out the chorus once, again it's always the same. Chord spacing looks a bit out in 
this format but it's pretty much a bar each at the intro/verse/bridge and half a 
bar for the chorus/link. Enjoy!

Capo 2nd fret.

Intro:
| E5		| A5		| E5		| A5		||

Verse:
E5		      A5
The last car on the line
E5			   A5
I guess you're back doing time
E5			A5
The ghost of Christmas past
E5			 A5
Left Walt Whitman in the trash

Chorus:
      Asus2	       E	           G#m6/D#   Aadd9	
You started out with nothing but lonely days
       Asus2	        E		  G#m6/D#   Aadd9
You used to like the sad songs of doom and gloom
         Asus2           E     	     G#m6/D#   Aadd9
You started with nothing but throwaways
       Asus2	       E	          G#m6/D#   Aadd9
You couldn't live with me so you moved to Brooklyn
 
Link:        
|E     G#m6/D# | Aadd9        B      | E    G#m6/D# | Aadd9		||

Verse:
Artificial desserts
Some have cars some have kids
Hit the pathmark after work
Some never been past the bridge

Chorus.

Link 2:
| E     G#m6/D# | Aadd9        B      | E    G#m6/D# | Aadd9     B        ||

Bridge:
| C#m		| E		| C#m		| E		|
Woah	-	oh		Woah - 	oh
  C#m		         E	            B*         |               |
I sometimes lie awake until sunrise
C#m		              E		          	Asus2    |              ||
Wondering how we become what we despise

Instrumental:						       	
||: E5		| A5		| E5		| A5		:||

Verse:
No more couches to surf
Only beaches in your dreams
No more trannies near work
It's still a drag walking in Queens

It's all blood money in the bank
Somehow some people find the nerve
Like the soldiers they thank down in DC
If I could only find the words

Chorus

Outro:				x3
||: E     G#m6/D# | Aadd9        B      :|| E		||
