D                  D/B
  On the corner of main street

Asus4                       A
  Just tryin' to keep it in line

D                   D/B
  You say you wanna move on and

Asus4                   A
  You say I'm falling behind

Pre Chorus:

                D     D/B    Asus4    A
Can you read my mind?

                D     D/B    Asus4    A
Can you read my mind?

Verse 2:

D                     D/B
  I never really gave up on

Asus4                  A
  Breakin' out of this two-star town

D                       D/B
  I got the green light, I got a little flight

Can you read my mind?

Chorus:

             G                D
The good old days, the honest man;

             A
The restless heart, the Promised Land

         G                D
A subtle kiss that no one sees;

         A
A broken wrist and a big trapeze


                G                  D
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind

            A        A/Bb      Bmin
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine

           G                   A
Before you go, can you read my mind?


Verse 3:


D                         D/B
  It’s funny how you just break down

Asus4             A
  Waitin' on some sign

           D                     D/B
  I pull up to the front of your driveway

Asus4                   A
  With magic soakin' my spine


Pre Chorus:

                D      D/B     Asus4     A
Can you read my mind?

                D      D/B     Asus4     A
Can you read my mind?


Chorus:


            G                 D
The teenage queen, the loaded gun;

              A
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One

           G                D
A southern drawl, a world unseen;

       A
A city wall and a trampoline

                G               D
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind

            A        A/Bb      Bmin
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine

           G
Before you jump

                 A                     Bmin
Tell me what you find when you read my mind

Chorus:

               G             D
Slippin’ in my faith until I fall

            A
He never returned that call

                G                  D
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting

                     A
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said

             Bmin            A
Well I don't mind, you don't mind

            G                  D
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine

                    Bmin
Put your back on me

                 A
Put your back on me

                 G            D        D/B       
         A
Put your back on me


Outro:

D                            D/B               Asus4            A
  The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun

                 D         D/B         Asus4          A
When you read my mind

The Part after the can you read my mind is

4 5 4 on D, then 7 on G then 4 5 4 on D again. Repeat that three times and to finish the third time after 7 on G go 4 5 2 on D

Good Tab!

Yeah the chord pression stuffed itself up a bit when i posted it. there are some chords missing and some that shouldn't be there, like the D chord at the beginning of the solo, just came out of no where...
