INTRO:

And it's true we named our children after towns, that we'd never been to
And it's true that the clouds just hung around,
Like black Cadillacs outside a funeral

CHORUS:

            Am                            Fmaj7                        C
And we were done, done, done with all the fuck, fuck, fucking around!

G                  Am                           Fmaj7
       You were so true to yourself, you were true to no one else

     C                                    B
Well I should put you in the ground.

               Am                                Fmaj7
I've got the time, i got the hours, i got the days, i got the weeks

           C                      G
I could say to myself I've got words but I can't speak but I was

Am                            Fmaj7                     C       B
Done, done, done with all the circ, circ, circling 'round.


BRIDGE:

Bb
  I didn't die and I ain't complaining

 F                  C        B
I ain't blaming you.

Am
  I didn't know that the words you said to me meant more

Fmaj7                           C       G
to me than they ever could you.

Bb                                 F                     C        B
  I didn't lie and I ain't saying I told the whole truth.

Am
  I didn't know that this game we were playing even

F                   C      G
had a set of rules.

VERSE:

We named our children after towns, that we'd never been to
And it's true that the clouds just hung around,
Like black Cadillacs outside a funeral
And we were laughing at the stars while our feet clung tight to the ground.
So pleased with ourselves for using so many verbs and nouns.
But we were all still just

CHORUS:

Am                          Fmaj7                          C      G
Dumb, dumb, dumber than the dirt, dirt, dirt on the ground!

Am
Well, wings on flames, kings with no names,

Fmaj7                     C                             B
well this place just ain't got right air right now.

            Am                         Fmaj7
You were so all over town but still so crayola brown, well you should

C                             G
run 'round yourself right now.  And we were,

Am                            Fmaj7                       C        B
done, done, done with all the fuck, fuck, fucking around.


AND END ON: Am

Great song and an even greater tab. Good job with tabbing the harmonics too, cheers.
