Intro : C

C        G
You were up to your necklace  in drunk friends and wreckage 
         C
when the New Year
G                              
Stepped out of the past through the rose colored glass 
C
and dropped you off here
F                                               C                    F
With a broken kazoo, a faded marijuana tattoo,  and confetti in your hair
F*                                                        C
Now you're Jesus' age, \but you've only been betrayed by the calendar


G
Your mother remarried 

after your father was buried 
         C
in this sailor's suit
G
Now she sells real estate, 

he floats in his grave, 
     C
and neither has much to say to you
       F
So you follow a cloud 
                                  C
to a Betsy Ross shroud and see the wind try to rip it in two
F*
But it don't make you feel any better 

when you're under the weather 
                     C
and it's hanging over you

F
It's fading, It's fading
C                         F
So what are you going to do now?
F*
All America asked was for you to mow the grass,
                          F
But you're thinking of throwing in the towel
C        F             D*
Roll on, Roll on, Roll on

C

G
Mystery is bandaged 

with routine, Plaster-of-Paris, 
C
and mosquito net
G
While paint thinner blades 
                                     C
strip the windshield of salt cake and sunset
F
Someone once said 

the humble would stumbled 
C                                 F
onto something long forgotten and ravaged,
F*
But your dreams soak the pillow 
          C
just as a thimble of rain feeds the cactus


G
So drain your bruises, 

cut your scapegoats loose 
            C 
and confess ignorance
G
Pull a metaphor out of a river 
                       C
or a door and add your fingerprints
F
You could always go west 

just like the rest 
C                           F
and bury your head into the hot sand
F*
Or you could dust your broom 
                              C 
and dissolve the moon on your eyelids
 

F
It's fading, It's fading
C                         F
So what are you going to do now?
F*
All America asked was for you to mow the grass,
                          F
But you're thinking of throwing in the towel
C        F              D* 
Roll on, Roll on, Roll on

Enjoy.
