[Fig1] x2

           Fig1
Shakedown 1979
                         Fig1
cool kids never have the time
                                    F#m7add11      B        Fig1
on a live wire right up off the street, you and I should meet
                         Fig1
junebug skipping like a stone
                                    Fig1
with the headlights pointed at the dawn
                               F#m7add11    B
we were sure we'd never see an end to it all
    E5      Emaj7    Fig2                             E
and I don't even     care to shake these zipper blues
   Emaj7     Fig2                           E       Emaj7    Fig2
and we don't know just where our bones will rest to dust I   guess
                     F#m7add11    B          Fig1
forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
                                Fig1
double cross the vacant and the bored
                                      Fig1
they're not sure just what we have in store
                     F#m7add11      A9
morpine city slippin dues down to see
     E5       Emaj7   Fig2                     E
that we don't even     care as restless as we are
    Emaj7    Fig2                              E
we feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
    Emaj7   Fig2                    B5
and poured  cement, lamented and assured
                        C#m   Amaj9
to the lights and towns below
B5              C#m      Amaj9
faster than the speed of sound
B5            C#m          Amaj9 F#m7add11  B        Fig1
faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope
                        Fig1
Justine never knew the rules
                                    Fig1
hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
                           Fig1
no apologies ever need be made
                           F#m7add11
I know you better than you fake it
    B       E        Emaj7  Fig2                        E
to see that we don't even    care to shake these zipper blues
   Emaj7     Fig2                           E        Emaj7    Fig2
and we don't know just where our bones will rest, to dust I   guess
                  F#m7add11   B      Fig1
forgotten and absorbed into earth below
                                Fig1
the street heats the urgency of now
                          E
as you see there's no one around
