Verse:
          Em                       G                        
      G
I’ve been dragging around from the end of your coat for two weeks, ah-ah,
Em/G                           G                            
        G/D
Everywhere you go is swirling, everything you say has water under it, ah-ah,
    Am                           Am/B C                  
Em          Em/F#
You know I keep your fingerprints     in a pink folder in    the middle of my table,
G                       G/A  Am     Am/B
You’re the tall kingdom I surround
C              C/B         Em    Em/F#   G/D
Think I better follow you around

Chorus:
Am                       Am/B   C              C/B
You might need me more than you think you will,
Em                           Em/F# G
Come home in the car you love, brainy, brainy, brainy,

Em/G  G
Em/G  G

Verse 2:
          Em                       G                        
      G
I’ve been dragging around from the end of your coat for two weeks, ah-ah,
         Em/G                      G                   Em     
                                    G/D
You keep changing your fancy, fancy mind every time I decide to let it go,
Am                      Am/B C                        
                        Em         Em/F#
I was up all night again,    boning up and reading the    American dictionary,
G                       G/A    Am    Am/B
You’ll never believe me what I found,
C              C/B        Em     Em/F# G/D
Think I better follow you around

Chorus 2:
Am                     Am/B     C              C/B
You might need me more than you think you will,
Em                           Em/F# G                  G/A
Come home in the car you love, brainy, brainy, brainy,
Am                     Am/B     C              C/B
You might need me more than you think you will,
Em                           Em/F# G
Come home in the car you love, brainy, brainy, brainy,
