[Intro]
B B/G# C#m9 Emaj7 F#7add4
B B/G# C#m9 Emaj7 F#7add4

[Verse 1]
B   B/G#    C#m9          Emaj7
  I open my eyes and it's November
              F#7add4
And I am in a freight elevator
B         B/G#   C#m9   Emaj7               F#7add4
  And I'm in Las Vegas,       but I haven't won any money
B     B/G#     C#m9            Emaj7           F#7add4
  And everyone here is wearing clothing that I find confusing
B B/G#       C#m9              Emaj7   F#7add4
       And I wonder if they've won any money

[Chorus 1]
E            F#7add4         Badd4
  Jeff tells me it's not the drugs
            Aadd9                      G#m7
It's Monday morning and you can't get up
          F#7sus4           Esus2                  F#7sus4
When your degree is staring daggers from the wall
E             F#7add4          Badd4
But somewhere sunk inside your heart
           Aadd9       G#m7             F#7sus4                B5/F B5/E F#
There is a teensy tiny part of you that sure could use some coffee

[Verse 2]
B B/G# C#m9 Emaj7 F#7add4
B B/G# C#m9 Emaj7 F#7add4
B   B/G#    C#m9           Emaj7
  I open my eyes, and I am sweating
  F#7add4
I must have been dreaming
B B/G#      C#m9             Emaj7                   F#7add4
       That punch I threw was      just embarrassing
B     B/G#   C#m9              Emaj7        F#7add4
  And all my dreams are always violent, but I'm not violent
B    B/G#  C#m9              Emaj7   F#7add4
  So in my dreams I'm not so good at fighting

[Chorus 2]
E              F#7add4           Badd4
  There's this one where you and I
           Aadd9          G#m7          F#7sus4     Esus2 F#7sus4
Are making brilliant love inside a 7-11 outside the city
E             F#7add4           Badd4
  And I can't save us when that guy
            Aadd9          G#m7
Gets up and jumps out from behind the counter
F#7sus4                  B5/F B5/E F#
Gun in hand and grinning

[Bridge]
B5 B5/E F#5 B5/E
B5 B5/E F#5 B5/E
B5        B5/E        F#5      B5/E
  Tell my sister I am with her wherever she may go
B5       B5/E             F#5             B5/E
  If not [?] then sure as shit, where she leads I'll follow
B *         B/E          C#m9/F#
  Watch the corn grow in Ohio
        B/E
Let our kids grow strong and smart
B *       B/E        C#m9/F#         Emaj7
  Playing intramural sports while we build the ark

[Outro]
B *  Emaj7 C#m9/F# Emaj7
B *  Emaj7 C#m9/F# Emaj7
B *  Emaj7 C#m9/F# Emaj7
B *  Emaj7 C#m9/F# Emaj7 B *
