Title: One Headlight
Artist: The Wallflowers
Album: Bringing Down the Horse

(note: leads in D major pentatonic [B blues])

[Verse] 

G-D-F#m-Bm

G                     D        
So long ago I don't remember when
       F#m                          Bm
That's when they say I lost my only friend
They said she died easy of a broken heart disease
As I listened through the cemetary trees

I seen the sun coming up at the funeral at dawn
The long broken arm of human law
It always seemed such a waste
She always had a pretty face
I wondered why she hung around this place

G                        F#m
                         Hey hey hey...


[Chorus] 

G-D-Em-A

G
Come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em                          A
There's got to be something better than in the middle
G
Me and Cinderella 
D
Put it all together
Em                   A
We can drive it home ... with one headlight.


[Verse]

She said its cold it feels like independence day 
And I can't break away from this parade
But theres got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed

I seen the sign up ahead at the county line bridge
Saying all is good and nothing less its dead
Runnin' till she's out of breath
She ran until there's nothing left
She hit the end its just her window ledge

G                        F#m
                         Hey hey hey...

[Chorus] 

G-D-Em-A

G
Come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em                          A
There's got to be something better than in the middle
G
Me and Cinderella 
D
Put it all together
Em                   A
We can drive it home ... with one headlight.


[Verse]

This place is old feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine but the engine doesn't turn
With smells of cheap ol' wine and cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn

So alone I feel just like somebody else
Man I ain't changed but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between
These city walls and dyin' dreams
I think her death it must be killing me

G                        F#m
                         Hey hey hey...


[Chorus] 

G-D-Em-A

G
Come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em                          A
There's got to be something better than in the middle
G
Me and Cinderella 
D
Put it all together
Em                   A
We can drive it home ... with one headlight.

sounds more like an F# not an F#m to me
