[Intro]

G C G C

[Verse 1]

G                              C                               G          C
Pack a change of clothes and a pillow for the road for when we drift off
G                                   C                              G    C
Put the sketches and the notes in a box labeled "burn with furniture"
        Am                                D                         G     C G 
We will watch the fire burn the whole entire house we built down to ashes
         Am                          D
From the mirror we'll admire how the flame quickly retires
         Am                            D
we won't waste no long goodbyes on the smoke or foolish lies
             G           C     G
that finally passed us

[Chorus]

      Am                           D                             G
I was taught to keep an open ended life and never trap myself in nothin

[Verse 2]

G                                 C
Let's find something new to talk about
                            G    C
I'm tired talkin' 'bout myself
G                                   C
I spent my whole life talking to convince everyone
                      G     C
that I was something else
       Am
And the part that kinda hurts
        D
is I think it finally worked
            G         C        G
and now I'm leaving
          Am
I get the feeling things have changed
        D
but the mystery to me
            Am
is where and when along the way
       D                    G           C
did anyone decide that they believed me

[Chorus]

      Am                              D
I was taught to keep an open-ended life
                       G          C
and never trap myself in nothin'
      Am                           D
I was told to keep an open-ended life
                          G
to never trap yourself in nothin'

[Verse 3]

G                        C
When we settle down in another nowhere town
               G          C
let's tell our neighbors
G
We won't be here long
             C                              G     C
and we'll be quiet but don't go asking any favors
        Am                        D                          G         C   G
I can't stand the unexpected, uninvited visits from too many strangers
   Am
My trust has dwindled down
              D                            G      C
and I can leave just as abruptly as I came here.

[Chorus]

     Am                              D
I was taught to keep an open-ended life
                       G          C    G
and never trap myself in nothin'
      Am                           D
I was told to keep an open-ended life
                          G       C    G
to never trap yourself in nothin'
     Am                              D
I was taught to keep an open-ended life
                       G
and never trap myself in nothin'


G    C    G  (x2)      Am   D  (x3)

[Riff]

End on 

G C
