Pack yourself a toothbrush dear

Pack yourself a favorite blouse
           C 
Take a withdrawlslip
                 F       C
Take all of your savings out
                   Am         G
'Cause if we don't leave this town
               F       C
We might never make it out
              Am      G
And I was not born to drown
        C        F C 
Baby c'mon

[Verse]:
                   C
Forget what father Brennan said
            F       C
We were not born in sin
             C
Leave a note on your bed
                F            C
Let your mother knows you're safe

We'll 've driven through the state

If the sun don't shine on me today

And if the subways flood and bridges break

Will you lay yourself down and dig your grave

Or will you rail against your dying day

And when we looked outside, couldn't even see the sky
                                    F   C
How do you pay the rent, is it your parents
      Am        G     F           C
Or is hard work dear, holding the atmosphere
              Am        G
I don't wanna live like that

If the sun don't shine on me today

Put on your dress, yes wear something nice

Decide on   me, yea decide on us
Am  G/B C   F     Am  G     C
Oh, oh, oh, Illinois, Illinois

[Intro]:
G

Verse:
G
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
                                                D
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
          G
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
                                     D
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

[Break]:
G

[Pre-chorus]:
G                                  C              G
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
                                                D
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
      G                           C                G    
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
                                                      D
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around

[Chorus]:
          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

[Break]:
G

[Pre-chorus] 
          G                       C                       G
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
                                             D
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
     G                     C       G
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
         C               G                        D 
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

[Chorus]:
          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

[Bridge]:
        Em                 G           C     D     Em
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
         G                        Em            C        D      G
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part

[Break]:
G

Pre-chorus II:
      G                C               G
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
                                              D
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
      G                    C                   G    
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
       C         G
It's a bed and a bathroom
                    D
And a place for the end

[Chorus]:
            G       D     C        G     C            G          D   
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

End:
D G

When you left this town, with your windows down

Let the exits pass, all the tar and glass

With the cities on the signs

But you held your course to some distant war
       C
In the corners of your mind

[Chorus]:

From the second time around
    C           Am

F                      C  G  Am
I'll love you just the same
           G           F          C
I couldn't know what's in your mind
Am             G                F      C
But I saw the pictures, you're looking fine


[Chorus]

         C
And there was a time
                          G
When I stood in line for love, for love, for love
       F                            C
But I let you go, oh, I let you go


C 
And he fell apart

With his broken heart
       G
And this blood this blood this blood
         F                         C
Oh, it drains from my skin, it does

9. Sick In The Head
   Original tab by: G-Sauce
   Tuning: Standard
   Capo: 7th Fret


chords used:

     C  F  G  Am  B
e |-(3)-0--3-(3)-(3)
B |--1--1--0--1---1
G |--0--2--0--2---0
D |--2--3--0--2--(0)
A |--3--3--2--0---2
E |--x--x--3--x---x

These riffs can be used by a second guitar to add a little something to the song.
If you're playing on your own, they're not necessary, but if you have the skill
level to incorporate the into the chords, it makes the song sound more complete, 
but it can be tricky.

Riff 1 - plays throughout whole song except last two lines where riff two is played
e |-------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------|
G |-------------------------------------|
D |--2-2-3----0-0-2------------2--------|
A |-------------------0-0-2-------------|
E |-------------------------------------|

Riff 2 - plays during the last two lines before the fade out 'i will not live life 
underneath it all...let's just make this count a lot in here'
e |-------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------|
G |--0----------------------------------|
D |----3-2----------------------2---0---|
A |---------0-2-3-----------2-3---3---3-|
E |---------------3-1---1-3-------------|

The first two verses have chords changes that happen when no lyrics are sung.
Listen to the song for timing.

Intro - C

C F
    People say I'm no good
G C    
    Write me off, oh yes they should
Am B                                   C    
    Fuck 'em they're just sick in the head


C F
    They're writing my history
G C                             Am  B  
    Think somebody should've asked me
                           C
Everyone was safe in their beds
      C   
Their beds And I said

C       F           G         C
I won't live, won't live like them
A    B                       C
Everyone, they're all seeing red

C       F
I don't know
          G          C        A       B
If it's alright with you, but I'll be gone
                           C
A ghost will be here in my stead, my stead
      C
And I said

Bridge (Riff 2 plays during these two lines)

F      C    G     Am    G      F
I can't live life underneath it all
Am   B      C     G       C
Everyone is older now and gone

F      C   G   Am    G     F
I will not be here forever dear
Am           B         C       G      C
So let's just make this count a lot in here

[Intro]
G Em C G

[Verse 1]
G                 Em
Oh, the devil's inside
               C
You opened the door
               G
You gave him a ride
G                             Em
Too young to know, too old to admit
                  C   A7     C
That you couldn't see how it ends


[Chorus]
Em D#+                      C   G
      What did you do to my eyes
Em D#+                          C          G
      What did you sing to that lonely child
Em D#+                          C          G
        Promised it all but you lied
           Em   D#+  G/D G(b5)/C# C   
You better slow down baa-by       soon
                       G
It's all or nothing to you
Em C G


[Verse 2]
    G                 Em
The glow of Hollywood signs
                C
They sold you a bridge
                 G
They fed you the lines (they fed you to lions)
    G                                 Em
You always confused your servants for friends
                 C   A7     C 
But you couldn't see how it ends
It's all or nothing to you


[Chorus]
Em D#+                      C   G
      What did you do to my eyes
Em D#+                       C    G
      What did you say to my only child
Em D#+                             C          G
        Promised your love but you lied
           Em   D#+  G/D G(b5)/C# C   
You better slow down baa-by       soon
                       G
It's all or nothing to you
Em C G
G Em C A7 C


[Chorus]
Em D#+                      C   G
      What did you do to my eyes
Em D#+                          C          G
      What did you sing to that lonely child
Em A7                           C          G
        Promised it all but you lied
           Em   D#+  G/D G(b5)/C# C   
You better slow down baa-by       soon
