[Intro]

A Gsus2 D A Gsus2 D


[Verse]

  A             Gsus2              D 
I don't want to talk about it to you
        A                        Gsus2     D                               
I'm not an open book that you can rifle through
    A                           Bm7        Gsus2 Em7              
The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
           D          A           Gsus2                          
I'm just a basket case without you

           A              Gsus2    D
He's not a magic man or a perfect fit
          A                     Gsus2    D     
But had a steady hand and I got used to it
      A                    Bm7         Gsus2 Em7   
And a glass cage heart and invited me in
                   D          A           Gsus2
And now I'm just a basket case without him


[Chorus]

D                    Gsus2                    
You're begging for the truth
Gm                    D (G/D A/D)                   
So I'm saying it to you
                      Gsus2                  
I've been saving your place
         Gm                               
And what good does it do
               D           A Gsus2
Now I'm just a basket case
               D           A Gsus2              
Now I'm just a basket case


[Verse]

  A                        Gsus2        D  
I don't say much and it'll stay that way
         A                                 Gsus2        D
You got a steel train touch and I'm just a track you lay
        A               Bm7        Gsus2 Em7     
So I'll stay right here underneath you
           D             A                 Gsus2
I'm just a basket case and that's what we do


[Chorus]

D                     Gsus2                   
You're begging for the truth
Gm                    D (G/D A/D)               
So I'm saying it to you
D                        Gsus2                
I've been saving your place
         Gm                               
And what good does it do
               D          A Gsus2               
Now I'm just a basket case


[Bridge]

               D                         
Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams
             A                          
Oh send your armies in of robbers and thieves
             Bm        Gsus2   D/F#            Gsus2 A Bm7 A7/C#
To steal the state I'm in I don't want it anymore


[Chorus]

D                     Gsus2                   
You're begging for the truth
Gm                    D (G/D A/D)                 
So I'm saying it to you
D                     Gsus2                  
I've been saving your place
         Gm                               
And what good does it do
               D           A Gsus2              
Now I'm just a basket case
               D           A Gsus2         
Now I'm just a basket case
               D           A Gsus2        
Now I'm just a basket case
               D           A Gsus2        
Now I'm just a basket case
