Verse                 ---------------------------------|
G          C
Another perfect day
G          C
they keep piling up.
G          C              Am
I got happiness that I can't maintain
D
so beginner's luck.

I had shoes to fill
walkin' barefoot now.
Can't tell north from south
but no split hairs gonna get me down.

Chorus
C                    G
I'm stayin' above the flat line
C                   G
I'm ahead of the curve.
C                          G
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
Am                         D
on a red eye flight to another world.

It isn't any trouble
if you wanna come with me.
I know it's out of the question, honey
but I sure could use the company
C  (throw around Am and D in here later)   G
and a place to be.

Now the sky is pink
rooftop swimmin' pool.
I'm not carefree, no
I'm free to care
I just never do.

All the bags are checked
and the reasons why.
Yesterday lingers on
that's the peace you keep when you say goodbye.

You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Bury it by the river
Easy, there's a search party but it's gettin' dark.

I won't hold you to nothin'
I wanna make that plane.
Probably end up a stranger, crazy
but I'm still hoping there's another way
and a place to stay.

Am       D       C      G
What a scene has got you sentimental
  C                 Am                  D
when the night comes, when the night comes loose.
All the things you've put up on the mantle
C               Am   (iffy, anything might work here)
What a shame. What a shame.
D
It's old news.

I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve.
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
on an all night drive to another world.

You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Probably end up a drifter, lonely
but I'm still hoping for a change of heart
and a place to start.

Thanks for tabbing - great song! I could be wrong but the C sounds like an Em to me?

Listening to the verse again, sounds to me like:

G Em (riff 1)
G Em (riff 2)
G Em (riff 1)
C D
