Capo 3

[VERSE 1]
F            Em  C
Shakedown 1979
F                        C
Cool kids never have the time 
F                               Dm
On a live wire right up off the street
       G        C
You and I should meet


[VERSE 2]
F                       Em  C
Junebug skipping like a stone
F                              C
With headlights pointed at the dawn
F
We were sure we'd never see
   Dm        G 
An end to it all


[CHORUS 1]
    C            F                          C
And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
             F                              C
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
          F
To dust I guess
               Dm              G       C
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below


[SOLO]
F F Em C 


[VERSE 3]
F                               Em     C
Double cross the vacant and the bored
F                                     C
They're not sure just what we have in store
F                      Dm           G
Morphine city slippin' dues down to see


[CHORUS 2]
C             F                      C
We don't even care as restless as we are
            F                              C
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
             F
And poured cement
             G
Lamented and assured


[BRIDGE]
                  Am      F
To the lights - and towns below
G                 Am       F
Faster than - the speed of sound
G                Am      F
Faster than - we thought we'd go
  Dm        G          Em    C
Beneath the sound - of hope


[VERSE 4]
F                      Em  C
Justine never knew the rules
F                             Em      C
Hung down with the freaks and ghouls
F                         C
No apologies ever need be made
F                      Dm         G
I know better than you fake it to see


[CHORUS 3]
     C             F                          C
That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
             F                              C
And we don't know just where out bones will rest
          F
To dust I guess
             Dm                G     C
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below


[OUTRO]
F                               Em   C
The street heats the urgency of now
F                         C
As you see there's no-one around
