[Verse 1]

Emaj7  E5  A5
Shakedown 1979,
 
Emaj7  E5  A5
cool kids never have the time
 
F#m             B5           Emaj7  E5  A5
on a live wire right up off the street, you and I should meet
 
Emaj7  E5  A5
junebug skipping like a stone
 
Ema7  E5  A5
with the headlights pointed at the dawn
 
F#m           B5
we were sure we'd never see an end to it all
 

[Hook 1]

E5           A5                            E5
and I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
 
A5                              E5              A5
and we don't know just where our bones will rest to dust I guess
 
F#m                 B5
forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
 
Emaj7  E5  A5


[Verse 2]

Emaj7  E5  A5                                     Emaj7  E5  A5
double cross the vacant and the bored
 
Emaj7  E5  A5
they're not sure just what we have in store
 
F#m          A5
morpine city slippin dues down to see
 

[Hook 2]

E5             A5                      E5
that we don't even care as restless as we are
 
A5                              E5
we feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
 
A5                 B5
and poured cement, lamented and assured
 
C#m     A5
to the lights and towns below
 
B5               C#m      A5
faster than the speed of sound
 
B5              C#m          A5  F#m         B5           Emaj7  E5  A5
faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope
 

[Verse 3]

Emaj7  E5  A5
Justine never knew the rules
 
Emaj7  E5  A5
hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
 
Emaj7  E5  A5
no apologies ever need be made
 
F#m
I know you better than you fake it
 
B5       E5             A5                          E5
to see that we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
 

[Hook 3]

A5                              E5               A5
and we don't know just where our bones will rest, to dust I guess
 
F#m       B5         Emaj7  E5  A5
forgotten and absorbed into earth below
 

[Outro]

Emaj7  E5  A5
the street heats the urgency of sound
 
E5
as you can see there's no one around

It's correct, but a lot of the chords are off. The Emaj7 and E5 in the verses should be before the lyrics start in some parts.

Completely the wrong chords. A tab would be better than just the chords. Also very confusing formatting.
