American Car: mike doughty
tabbed: brett5
standard tuning

C         Bb                      F
My circus train pulls through the night
Full of lions and trapeze artists
Im done with elephants and clowns
I want to Run away and join the office

G       Am             F
Aimless sister, youre surrounded
Angel-faced and Im astounded
Dm 
How sweet you are
F
How sweet you are
 
        C           Bb       F 
In your long, black American car
C       Am                 Dm      F
And you know just where to find me
C    Bb                F
If I dont know who you are
         C        Am  Dm  F
You will remind me

C        Bb               F  
Theres a girl down in the bar
A flaming star upon her shoulder
Slugging hot pink frozen drinks
To put the foot down on her smolder

G     Am                F
Easy, cowboy, whats the rush now?
She may cleave me like a snowplow
Dm 
How sweet you are
F
How sweet you are

C       Bb            F
All the lazy days are gone
Still the grind is grinding on
Throw the memories in a drawer
Lock myself behind a door

G       Am             F
Aimless sister, youre surrounded
Angel-faced and Im astounded
Easy, cowboy, whats the rush now?
She may cleave me like a snowplow
Dm 
How sweet you are
F
How sweet you are

       C           Bb       F 
In your long, black American car
C       Am                 Dm      F
And you know just where to find me
C    Bb                F
If I dont know who you are

This is standard tuning, but with a capo on the 1st fret to match the recorded version on "Haughty Melodic". Close enough for a chord file though.
5 stars!

During "Aimless sister...." it should be G F C, not G Am F

Yup, was just gonna say that, Hunter. Bridge should be G, F, C,

That said, I'm so glad I'm not the only Doughty fan here. ;)
