"Old College Try"
set tempo
Intro: A, C#m, D, E, D
       A, F#m, D, E

Verse 1
A                               C#m      
From the housetops to the gutters
D                       E      D
From the oceans to the shores
    A                                      F#m
The warning signs have all been bright and garish
D                           E
Far to great in number to ignore

[repeat that progression]

From the cities to the swamplands
From the highways to the hills
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils
'Chorus' 1
              D E            A        D
But I will walk down to the end with you
            A                E         A
If you will come all the way down with me

Verse 2: (same progression as verse one)

From the entrance to the exit
Is longer than it looks from where we stand
I wanna say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet
Things will shortly get completely out of hand

I can feel it in the rotten air tonight
In the tips of my fingers in the skin on my face
In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light
In the way those eyes I've always loved illuminate this place
'Chorus' 2
             D        E
Like a trashcan fire in a prison cell
         A                    D
Like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell
        A               E A        D
I will walk down to the end with you
            A                E         A
If you will come all the way down with me

[then verse progression while organ solo plays over it, 
followed by D E A, then A E D transitioned rapidly, 
then A E A]
