Intro
[drums, then]
B    Em    C
B    Em    

Verse
C            B      Em
Shakedown 1979
C                        B        Em
Cool kids never have the time
C                               D
On a live wire right up off the street
        Am          B      Em
You and I should meet
C                       B        Em
Junebug skipping like a stone
         C                         B        Em
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
C                              D         Am
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

Chorus (second guitar plays verse muted i think)
    D            Am                         D
And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
             Am
And we don't know
                          D
Just where our bones will rest
          Am
To dust I guess
              D                 Am      B(goes into verse)
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Verse
B    Em
C                               B        Em
Double cross the vacant and the bored
C                                     B
They're not sure just what we have in store
Em                     D            Am
Morphine city slippin' dues down to see

Chorus/Bridge (second guitar plays verse muted through chorus, ends at %)
     D             Am                     D
That we don't even care as restless as we are
            Am                             D
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
           Am                    %D
And poured cement, lamented and assured
                  C
To the lights and towns below
D               C      
Faster than the speed of sound
D              C
Faster than we thought we'd go
D           Am       B(goes into verse
Beneath the sound of hope

Verse
B     Em
C                      B        Em
Justine never knew the rules,
C                                 B       Em
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
   C                      B       Em
No apologies ever need be made
C                          D          Am
I know you better than you fake it to see

Chorus (second guitar same as before)
     D             Am                         D
That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
             Am                             D
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
          Am
To dust I guess
              D                 Am      B
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Verse
B    Em
C                               B       Em
The street heats the urgency of now
C                         D(single downstroke)
As you see there's no one around
[drum outro]

thats it
