“We’re OK”- The Rescues
Transcribed by Robin Young

Notes: A-7(no5,#13) contains the notes A,C,F#,G. It could be written many different 
ways, but this seemed the most accurate to me.
Also, for the first section, I’ve written the implied chords- they don’t really come in 
until the last line of the first verse.
Additionally, many of these chords are played without the thirds.

INTRO: C5  C5(add13)

VERSE 1:
F             C
  Desert sand fills up your boots
G                       A-
  You promised not to run
F            C
  California won’t grow roots
A-7(no5,#13)
They burn up in the sun

VERSE 2:
F             C
I’m lost, but I’m not afraid
   G                         A-
So what if nothing’s taking hold?
F               C
  All the plans that you’ve made
A-7(no5,#13)
  Let ‘em go

CHORUS:
A-                        F        C  G/B  G
Falling down in the dirt, we’re OK
A-                         F       C  E-7
We are tired, we are hurt, we’re OK
F
Crashing cars, dying stars
G
I can love you like you are
A-
Hit the wall, have to crawl
G(add11)/B
Even if we lose it all
F     G  C
We’re OK

VERSE 3:
F             C
  Torn dress, broken heart
G                  A
  Stumble to the ground
F               C
  Feel the eyes rip you apart
A-7(no5,#13)
  They try to take you down
Oh, they’ll never break us down

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
G5 A5 C5/E F5
              I know you don’t believe it
G5 A5 C5/E F5
              Sometimes I don’t believe it
G5 A5 C5/E F5
              The gavel will fall, don’t matter at all
G5 A5 C5/E F5
              You’re the one you gotta forgive

CHORUS/OUTRO:
A-                        F        C  G/B  G
Falling down in the dirt, we’re OK
A-                         F       E-7
We are tired, we are hurt, we’re OK
F
Crashing cars, dying stars
G
I can love you like you are
A-
Hit the wall, have to crawl
G(add11)/B
Even if we lose it all
F
Sirens wail, empty sail
G
Not enough cups to bail
A-
Bad luck, getting good
G(add11)/B
You don’t want it like you should
F
Empty out your bank account
G
You know you can live without
A-
Hit the wall, have to crawl
G(add11)/B
Even if we lose it all
F     G   A-  G(add11)/B
We’re OK
F     G   C
We’re OK
