Intro: A--G--D- x2, D--


Verse 1:
  A             G
I don't want to talk 
            D
about it to you
    A
I'm not an open book 
         G         D
that you can rifle through
    A
The cold hard truth 
            Bm        G
that you'll see right to
Em         D
  I'm just basket 
    A           G
case without you


Verse 2:
           A
He's not a magic man 
     G       D
or a perfect fit
           A
But had a steady hand 
          G         D
and I got used to it
      A
And a glass cage 
            Bm       G
heart and invited me in
Em
  And now I'm just a 
D          A           G
basket case without him


Chorus 1:
D                        Em
  You're begging for the truth
Gm                       D
  So I'm saying it to you
D                       Em
  I've been saving your place
         Gm(hold)
And what good does it do?
               D          A G
Now I'm just a basket case
               D          A G
Now I'm just a basket case


Verse 3:
  A
I don't say much and 
       G           D
it'll stay that way
        A
You got a steel train touch 
               G            D
and I'm just a track you lay
         A              Bm         G
So I'll stay right here underneath you
Em           D          A                 G
  I'm just a basket case and that what we do


Chorus 2:
D                        Em
  You're begging for the truth
Gm                       D
  So I'm saying it to you
D                       Em
  I've been saving your place
         Gm(hold)
And what good does it do?
               D          A G
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
To steal the state I'm 
G    D/F#             Em  A Bm A/C#               
in I don't want it anymore


Chorus 3:
D                        Em
  You're begging for the truth
Gm                       D
  So I'm saying it to you
D                       Em
  I've been saving your place
         Gm(hold)
And what good does it do?
               D          A G
Now I'm just a basket case
               D          A G
Now I'm just a basket case
               D          A G
Now I'm just a basket case
               D          A G(hold)
Now I'm just a basket case
