Tuned half a step down

F                 Dm              F              Dm
My mom'd give me twenty and say "Stay out till dawn"
       F                   Dm         F           F
When her boyfriend was over and they wanted me gone
F                        Dm          F            Dm
I would walk through the woods to the old graveyard
   F                 Dm          F              F         Dm
And roll my own tops and think two kinda thoughts

       F               Dm
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           F          Dm
I don't know

F              Dm        F               Dm
That was the summer Dave's girlfriend OD'ed
       F                 Dm      F               F
She died in the bathroom at a party down the street
F                       Dm           F              Dm
I went to see him the next night, he had a new tattoo
       F                       Dm                F                     F
He was watching home movies of her, his face was wet, he looked so confused
F                      Dm              F                        Dm
They had a funeral for her, the preacher said she was with the Lord
          F                       Dm          F          F        Dm
There were lots of pictures of her taped to a poster board

       F                Dm
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           F            Dm
I don't know
         F              Dm
Are we high enough to clear this place?
          G
I don't know

F                                                      F
Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light
F                                           F
High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right
       F                           G
But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand
        F                                   G
When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down
F                Dm      F        Dm
I wound up that fall in a hospital
     F             Dm                     F              F         Dm
On the suicide wing with a lot of people thinkin' one thing
F                       Dm            F                   Dm
They had a sign on the wall that said "No touching at all"
          F                   Dm           F               F          Dm
There were screams in the dark, nurses running down the hall

F                   Dm               F                           Dm
On the night that I got there, they showered me and searched me hard
          F                        Dm            F          F         Dm
Then they took me to my little room overlooking a graveyard
F                   Dm        F               Dm
When I opened my eyes I was strapped to the bed
          F                 Dm   F             F       Dm
There was a needle in my arm, part of me was gone
F                    Dm            F             Dm
Then they took us outside in our slippers and gowns
       F                      Dm                    F                 F           Dm
To play basketball on the blacktop, the ball just bounced till it stopped

       F                Dm
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           F            Dm
I don't know
         F              Dm
Are we high enough to clear this place?
          G
I don't know

F                                                      F
Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light
F                                           F
High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right
       F                           G
But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand
        F                                   G
When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down

F                  Dm      F              Dm
When the leaves were wet behind the old duplex
         F            Dm   F              F          Dm
We used to run at night naked through the trees
F                             Dm               F                Dm
And you would lean back against me and I would try to stay soft
       F              Dm         F            F      Dm
We'd listen to the engines as the planes took off
