G
Well I think that there's a problem here
G                               Fill B
her voice just don't sound right
G
but I left myself on her answering machine
G                                Fill A
said "I'm back in town tonight."
C
I feel I've stepped out of the wilderness
C                           Fill D
all squint-eyed and confused
G
but even babies raised by wolves
G                                        Fill B
they know exactly when they've been used
 
CHORUS:
 
C                    D
See when it starts to fall apart,
  G                  Fill A
it really falls apart
     C                  D
like boots or hearts, oh when they start
     G                Fill A
they really fall apart
 
G
Fingers and toes, fingers and toes,
G                    Fill C
forty things we share
G
forty-one if you include,
G
the fact that we don't care
C
now you've blocked off most of main street
C                    Fill D
for your faith parade
G
everyone in town now, they probably all agree
G
I'm lying in the bed I made
 
CHORUS
 
SOLO
 
G
Now you won't even let me talk to you
G
we got some air to clear
G
we'd probably only agree on one thing anyway
G                                      Fill C
that's what the hell is happening here?
C
fingers and toes, fingers and toes
C                    Fill D
forty things we share
G
forty-one if you include
G
the fact that we don't care

Thanks to Duncan for doing most of the work here. I just made a few changes,
for the better I hope!

Not sure about what you've got for C chord and D chord - sounds like crap when I try to play it so I just play regular open C and D sounds fine.
