Colleen - Ted Leo (and the Pharmacists) Tabbed by Chris F (cfinest1 [at] gmail [dot] com).

INTRO: G (6 strums) F (2 strums) <-- Repeat 4x

G        Bm                  Am
Colleen, never to be crowned queen
C            Em
Never an evergreen
Bm                 Am
Floating above the scene
C             G
As still as a figurine

Bm                 Am
Expressionless, so serene
C                         Em
But I know what makes you scream
Bm                      Am
So don't you run out of steam
C
I know you, Colleen

          Am         Em           D
It's been all messed up since the very beginning
    Am     Em           D
You act so tough people think that you're winning
    F              G              A
And everyone wants something from Colleen

G        Bm          Am
Colleen, perpetually between
     C                      Em
What is and what could have been
Bm                    Am
Floating through your routine
      C                  G
Every day since you were fifteen

Bm                      Am
And rosy as you make it seem
  C                              Em
I know life for you ain't been a dream
           Bm                          Am
To have to deal with the things you've seen
           C       
While they work you like you're a—

Am             Em           D
Machines break down but you can't break with them
     Am       Em     D
It's too late now so don't break the rhythm
    F              G              A
And everyone wants something from Colleen

Em          F             G               A
Colleen, if ever you walk into a dead end street
Em
Come clean
      F                 G
Don't say that it's all all in your mind
                        A
Because I know what you mean

G
Colleen  (Verse chord progression over solo, end on C)

          Am         Em           D
It's been all messed up since the very beginning
    Am     Em           D
You act so tough people think that you're winning
    F              G              A
And everyone wants something from Colleen

A Ab G Gb   (Listen to the song to get the strumming right at this part)
G                                     F        G
And no one gets 'cause she's no one's Colleen
A
Colleen
