One Headlight by Wallflowers

I wrote this out in the key of G to better suit my vocal range.
To change it to the original key, just click the transpose "down" arrow until the 
first chord of the intro is D                                      

Intro: G  G  C  G  B7 Em D C G B7 Em D 

C                           G
   So long ago, I don't remember when
       B7                           Em         D
That's when they say I lost my only friend
           C                      G
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
     B7                            Em     D   C   G   B7   Em   D
As I listened through the cemetery trees
            C                   G                      
I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn, 
    B7                       Em  D
The long broken arm of human law
        C                               G
Now it always seemed such a waste. She always had a pretty face
   B7                               Em         D    C    C   B7  B7     
I wondered how she hung around this place

   C                        G
Hey,  come on try a little. Nothing is forever. 
Am                              D
   There's got to be something better than in the middle
C                 G
   Me & Cinderella put it all together
Am                   D               C                G B7 Em D
We can drive it home   with one headlight

              C                         G
She said it's cold. It feels like Independence Day
      B7                             Em    D 
And I can't break away from this parade
            C                    G
But there's got to be an opening Somewhere here in front of me
B7                                Em           D
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
                C                       G
And I seen the sign up ahead  At the county line bridge
       B7                             Em               D
Sayin' all is good and nothingness is dead
      C                                   G
We'll run until she's out of breath, She ran until there's nothin' left
    B7                                Em       D  C    C   B7  B7     
She hit the end it's just her window ledge 


                   C                        G
Well this place is old, It feels just like a beat up truck
           B7                              Em          D
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
                   C                               G        
Well it smells of cheaper wine & cigarettes, This place is always such a mess
     B7                                Em      D
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
           C                         G
I feel so old, I feel just like somebody else
             B7                              Em          D
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
     C                            G           
But somewhere here in between the seedy walls of dyin' dreams
  B7                                 Em    D  C  C  B7  B7 
I think her death it must be killin' me

You're right, tonypizzo. I transposed it because it's easier for me to sing, but I neglected to note this at the top of my submission. To change it to the original key, just click the transpose "down" arrow 5 times until the first chord of the intro is D.
