Intro: D, A, D, A, G

Verse One:
            D    A    G
You were an old      friend
     Bm            G
The kind I could confide in
     D    A   G        Bm                 G
And drink    with on random neighbour's porch steps
      Bm                 G                A       G
Our glossy eyes painted portraits of the streets


Repeat Intro


Verse Two:
            D    A   G
You were an old    friend
      Bm              G
That covered up your innocence
      D   A   G                   Bm                  G
With five     tattoos of all the bands you loved in high school
     Bm                  G             A     G
The ones you said that I had to listen to     all the time


Verse Three:
D                        G         D
I did what I did to get away from this
        Bm                 G              D
Cause everything that's happened has left me a total wreck
           D                     G       D
And everything that I do now is meaningless 
        Bm              G           D
So I'm off to wander around the world for a little bit
            F#m                                  G
Without one hundred channels with nothing on the TV
           F#m              G     A
And the great pessimistic unknown


Chorus:
         G                    D
So does anyone know the best way to go?
       A                                Bm 
Which road that I could take to get to Mexico?
       G                     D
Cause I'm so sick of living in this ditch
        A                    Bm
With only the memory in the back of my head


Outro:
         G                      Bm
I'm on cruise control and the radio was on
           G              
Yeah, they were playing that song
                              Bm
That we both learned on our Mexican guitars
          G                     Bm
I'm on cruise control and the radio was on
           G 
They were playing that song
                                     Bm
That we both learned on our Mexican guitars
         G                       Bm
On our Mexican guitars, on our Mexican guitars
         G                       Bm
On our Mexican guitars, on our Mexican guitars
             G    F#m
You were my old friend
