Standard Tuning CAPO ON 4TH!


[Verse]

    C                  D     Em
You sit there in your heart-ache
    G              C
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 C                D       Em
To save you from your old ways
 G
You play forgiveness
C
Watch it now Here he comes


[Chorus]

    C                       D Em
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus
            G
But he talks like a gentleman
 C
Like you imagined
              D Em
When you were young


[Instrumental]

G       C


[Verse]

 C
Can we climb this mountain
 D     Em
I dont know
 G                        C
Higher now than ever before
 C                           D       Em
I know we can make it if we take it slow
 G
Let's take it easy
  C
Easy now,  watch it go


[Chorus]

 C                             D     Em
We're burning down the highway sky- line
         G
On the back of a hurricane
 C
That started turning
               D  Em     G    C
When you were   young
               D  Em     G    C
When you were   young

       C           D          Em
And sometimes you close your eyes
              G                      C
And see the place where you used to live
               D   Em     G     C
When you were    young


(Unfortunatley with the capo i havn't quite worked out a way to do the fill section, if 
have it...tell me!)


[Bridge]

                Am
They say the devil's water It ain't so sweet
                             Em
You dont have to drink right now
                      G
But you can dip your feet
                        D
Every once in a little while


[Instrumental]

E  F#  G#m  B  E  
E  F#  G#m  B  E  


(THIS IS WHAT THE ACTUAL FILL IS, LESS THE CAPO, if you can transpose 
great!)


[Verse]

    C                  D     Em
You sit there in your heart-ache
    G                       C
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 C                D       Em
To save you from your old ways
 G
You play forgiveness
C
Watch it now Here he comes


[Chorus]

    C                       D   Em
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus
            G
But he talks like a gentleman
 C
Like you imagined
              D  Em
When you were young
 G
(talks like a gentleman)
 C
(like you imagined)
 C            D  Em
When you were young
   G   C

                                  D   Em    G   C
I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
                           D   Em           G   C    
  (fill)
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
     D
But more than you'll ever know
