Intro: A (electric)

Verse 1
A                                        A/G#          F#m
I'm told the eventual downfall is just a bill from the restaurant. 
                    D                    A
You told me I could order the moon, babe, just as long as I shoot what I want.
                                            A/G#                 F#m
What the last ten minutes have taught me: bet the hand that your money's on. 
                        D                    A              
Where the hell have the '70s brought me? You trade me away long gone. 

Chorus 1
 A                 D            E                     D      E
For the love of a god, you say, not a letter from an occupant.  
  A                  A/G#              F#m     D
("ooo-weee-ooo-eeeoooo-oooweeeooo-weeeeoooo-oooo") (x2)

Verse 2
A                                       A/G#               F#m     
The time that your enemy gives you, good times are not the ones you want. 
             D                       A         
I cried five rivers on the way here, which one will you skate away on? 
                                            A/G#       F#m
The tune you'll be humming forever, all the words are replaced and wrong,
                  D                       A
with a shower of yeahs and whatevers, you trade me away long gone. 

Chorus 2
A                 D            E                     D      E
For the love of a god, you say, not a letter from an occupant. 
 A                  A/G#              F#m     D
"ooo-weee-ooo-eeeoooo-oooweeeooo-weeeeoooo-oooo" (x2)
A                  E                A                  D
Where have all sensations gone? Where have all sensations gone? (x2)
A          E       A    D
"Ommlllalalmmamlallallala" (or something like that.)
 
Chorus 2 
               D                E                    D       E
For the love of a god, you say, not a letter from an occupant.  (x3)

Bridge
D                                            E
The song, the song, the song that's shaking me.

*Repeat Chorus 1 (x2), go into the 'ooos' (x2) and end on A.

-Cheers, J.B.
