The 9th track off of the newest addition to The Gaslight Athem's back catalogue 
'American Slang.' If you don't have this album I highly reccommend it. One of my 
new all time faves!

Here goes...

Intro: F, A, F, A, F (the same as the verse)

Verse:

F
The cool is dead, baby go on to sleep
A
Rest your weary head and lover bury me
F
And in the morning we'll start over again
A                               F
That's how they do it up on the screen
F
So me and my baby we would dance all night
A
But I don't know the steps in my baby's time
F
To do it like they do it for the girls uptown
A                                 F
I hear they light 'em up like the blues


Pre-Chorus:


       A               F
So I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
          A                  F
And she's waiting, and she's waiting

          G
For us to remember...


Chorus:


      A       F        F          G
Was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    A                  F                F            G
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   A      F           F        G
So I will wait on the edges in between
      F        G
These New York streets
                      F
Where you and I would meet


Post Chorus: F, A, F, A, F (the same as the verse)


Verse 2:

F
For 29 years we loved that line
A
And I would take it easy if I had your mind
F
But I'm a cannonball to a house on fire
A                           F
And you're slow like Motown Soul
F
So what now lover with your long black hair?
A
If I cut you open baby I can repair
F
And bandage your wounds with the salt on my tongue
A                           F
And I'm the only one 'round here


Pre-Chorus 2:


       A               F
So I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
          A                  F
And she's waiting, and she's waiting

          G
For us to recover...


Chorus 2:


      A       F        F          G
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    A                  F                F            G
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   A      F           F        G
So I will wait on the edges in between
      F        G
These New York streets
                      F
Where you and I would meet


Bridge:

         A  F  F         G
And only I can heal your wounds
     A F   F         G
Only I can heal your wounds
         A        F
When you can't go on
         F        G
When you can't go on
         A        F
When you can't go on
         G            A
When you can't go on, anymore...


Muted Pre-Chorus:


         A       F        F          G
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    A                  F 
Not another soul could love you
       F  G
Like my...


Chorus 3:

      A       F        F          G
So was I good to you, the wife of my youth
    A                  F                F            G
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
   A      F           F        G
So I will wait on the edges in between
      F        G
These New York streets
             F        G
On all these New York streets
                      F
Where you and I would meet


Hopefully everything is okay but as I worked this out by ear who knows?
Enjoy! :)
