[Intro Riff]

[Just keep repeating this under the lead riff]


Guitar 2 (lead riff)

[Then the bridge right before the lyrics start]:

   (D7)                                   (A)
|---------------------------------------|--5--|
|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7h8-8-8-8p7--7-5---------|--5--|
|-------------------------------7-7h9---|--6--|(A barre)
|---------------------------------------|--7--|
|---------------------------------------|--7--|
|---------------------------------------|--5--|


[Note: In some of the verses, the D7 alternates up to a D7sus4 (just add your 
 pinky to the 3rd fret on the high E string from a D7 chord)]


    D7
And what about my tailor my slowly mending lover

    A
She sews me clothes I could not bear to wait

   D7
My hands are locusts at her work, a green and fitting coat

A
Made upon the only honest loom


  D7
I remember last night's nightmare, my hand was in the road

    A                          G
The victim of some misdirected thresher


A            G#m (arpeggio)
We would run towards the sun

F#                  A           E
Driving towards the city of the angels

Fill 1
|------------------|
|------------------|
|-(0h1-1)-1-1-2-4--| (0h1-1 is guitar 1, the rest is guitar 2)
|------------------|
|------------------|
|------------------|


A                 G#m      
She would know of places we could go

F#            A          E
To escape the homicide investigation men


          Bm                  E 
And we're weaving through the traffic in the 

Dadd9               A
Shuttle-through-the-loom way

      Bm                  E   
We'll mix our drinks with water that's from 

Dadd9     A
Very far away


          Bm               E      
And we'll toast to every earthquake rolling 

Dadd9          A
Underneath the bay

          Bm            E               Dadd9
And we'll pardon every public servant's heavy cane, ohhh


(They'll never know my name)



A                       Asus4
Stephanie lives there, Stephanie lives there

A                       Asus4
Stephanie lives there, Stephanie lives there

A                                D 
Stephanie, Stephanie, Stephanie, oh.....

   D7 (hold)                                                     
So I've committed murder like a crazed and angered dope

      A              
She's helped me plan a stunning getaway

    D7 
And when the lynch mob came and we escaped the heat

         A
And went dancing at the local cabaret

   D7
We left those lawmen standing with thirteen yards of rope

        A
They'll never see me swinging from a palm tree

          D7 
She'll be sure to keep me safe here, entangled in her arms

    A                               G
Cuz I'm for her but Stephanie's for L.A., ohhhh

(*)
Stephanie's for L.A. (repeat several times)


[(*)Note: The vocals are staggered here.  Chords alternate between
 A and G, just listen to the song to hear it]

A                   G                        
Aaaah,  And I would like to board the skybird....
