The guitarist John adds a little riff to this chord (you should watch the video I link

INTRO

A    C#m   D *  A *
A    E     D    A
A    C#m   D *  A *
A    E     D    A

VERSE 1

A         E                    D                   A
I broke free on a Saturday morning, I put the pedal too the floor
         A              E                D                 A
Headed north on Mills Avenue and listened to the engine roar

A    C#m   D *  A *
A    E     D    A

                  A                       E
My broken house behind me and good things ahead,
               D                         A
a girl named Cathy wants a little of my time

                 A                        E
Six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking
       D                   A
aha! listen to the engine whine


CHORUS
               A                     E            D       A
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me
               A                     E           D         A
I am going to make it though this year if it kills me

VERSE 2

I played video games in a drunken haze,
I was seventeen years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue

And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
trading swigs from a bottle all bitter and clean
locking eyes holding hands
twin high maintenance machines

CHORUS

BRIDGE
F#m                              A
I drove home in the California dusk,
D                                      A
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
F#m                                   A
Pictured the look on my stepfather's face,
D                           E
ready for the bad things to come.

VERSE 3
I down shifted as I pulled into the driveway,
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear
The scene ends badly as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear

VERSE 3 CONT'D (this varies from the other verses)

              A            C#m        D *            E *      
There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year


CHORUS

OUTRO

A    C#m   D *  A *
A    E     D    A
A    C#m   D *  A *
A    E     D    A
