INTRO: A(add11) – G(add9)D5 (2x)

VERSE 1:
  A(add11)      G(add9)          D5
I don't want to talk about it to you
           A(add11)               G(add9) D5
I'm not an open book that you can rifle through
    A(add11)                    B-7       G(add9)  E7sus4
The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
         D5     A(add11)     G(add9)
I'm just basket case without you

VERSE 2:
           A(add11)       G(add9) D5
He's not a magic man or a perfect fit
         A(add11)              G(add9)   D5
He had a steady hand, and I got used to it
      A(add11)                B-7       G(add9) E7sus4
And a glass cage heart, and invited me in
                   D5     A(add11)      G(add9)
And now I'm just a basket case without him

   CHORUS:
D5                        G(add9)
   You're begging for the truth
G-(add9)           D5
   So I'm saying it to you
                         G(add9)
   I've been saving your place
        G-(add9) (hold)
   What good does it do?
                  D5          A(add11) G(add9)
   Now I'm just a basket case
                  D5          A(add11) G(add9)
   Now I'm just a basket case

VERSE 3:
  A(add11)                  G(add9)     D5
I don't say much, and it'll stay that way
         A(add11)                           G(add9)       D5
You got a steel train touch, and I'm just a track you lay
        A(add11)        B-7          G(add9) E7sus4
So I'll stay right here underneath you
           D5       A(add11)         G(add9)
I'm just a basket case; it’s what we do

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
               D5
Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams?
              A(add11)
Oh, send your armies in of robbers and thieves
             B-7       G(add9)   D5           A(add11)
To steal the state I'm in, I don't want it anymore

(CHORUS)

               D5          A(add11) G(add9)
Now I’m just a basket case
               D5          A(add11) G(add9)
Now I’m just a basket case
