Verse 1:
A                        Emaj7 E
Shakedown nineteen seven nine,  
A                        Emaj7 E     
Cool kids never have the time.
     A                          F#m7
On a live wire right up off the street 
        B                                  
You and I should meet. 

Verse 2:
A                       Emaj7 E
Junebug skipping like a stone
A                              Emaj7 E
With headlights pointed at the dawn.
A
We were sure we'd never see 
   F#m7      B
An end to it all.

Chorus 1:
    E       Emaj7 Amaj7                      E
And I don't even  care to shake these zipper blues,
    Emaj7    Amaj7                          E 
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
   Emaj7   Amaj7
To dust I  guess
               F#m7             B       E
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below.

Verse 3:
A                               Emaj7 E
Double cross the vacant and the bored,
A                                     Emaj7 E
They're not sure just what we have in store.
A                      F#m7         A
Morphine city slippin' dues down to see:

Chorus 2:
     E        Emaj7 Amaj7                  E
That we don't even  care as restless as we are,
   Emaj7    Amaj7                         E
We feel the pull in the land of a tousand guilts.
    Emaj7   Amaj7
And poured cement,
              B
Lamented and assured.

Bridge:
                  C#m   A
To the lights and town below,
B               C#m      B
Faster than the speed of sound,
B              C#m          A   F#m7       B
Faster than we thought we'd go beneath the sound of hope.

Verse 4:
A                      Emaj7 E
Justine never knew the rules,
A                             Emaj7  E
Hung down with the freaks and ghouls.
      A                   Emaj7 E
No apologies ever need be made,
E                      F#m7       B
I know better than you fake it to see:

Chorus 3:
     E        Emaj7 Amaj7                      E
That we don't even  care to shake these zipper blues,
    Emaj7    Amaj7                          E
And we don't know just where out bones will rest
   Emaj7  Amaj7
To dust I guess,
               F#m              B      Emaj7 E
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below.

Coda:
A                               Emaj7 E
The street heats the urgency of now.
A                          E
As you see there's no-one around.
