Intro: 
D -- Bm -- Asus4 -- A
D -- Bm -- Cadd9 -- Asus4 - A 

          D            Bm            Asus4    A
I've come five hundred miles just to see a halo
D              Bm         Cadd9       A
come from St. Petersburg, Scarlet and me
       D         Bm          Asus4        A
Well I opened my eyes, I was blind as can be
         D          Bm            Cadd9       A
When you give a man luck, he must fall in the sea
        Em           Em7           Asus4    A
And she wants you to steal and get caught 
        Em            Em7              Asus4    A
For she loves you for all that you are not 
                    D   Bm            Asus4   A
When you're falling down,     falling down
                    D   Bm            Cadd9   A
When you're falling down,     falling down



    D              Bm          Asus4          A
You forget all the roses don't come 'round on sunday
      D         Bm              Cadd9       A
She's not gonna choose you, for standing so tall
   D          Bm           Asus4       A
Go on, take a swig of that poison, and like it
D             Bm          Cadd9         A
Don't ask for silverware, don't ask for nothing
Em              Em7        Asus4    A
Go on, put your ear to the ground
         Em             Em7          Asus4    A        
Yeah you know you'll be hearin' that sound
           D    Bm           Asus4    A
Of falling down,     falling down
           D    Bm           Cadd9    A
Of falling down,     falling down
                    D    Bm              Asus4   A
Well you're fallin' down,    yeah you're falling
               D    Bm   Cadd9   A                 
You're fallin' down


Solo:
D Bm Asus4 A D Bm Cadd9 A
D Bm Asus4 A D Bm Cadd9 A
Em Em7 Asus4 A Em Em7 Asus4 A



                    D    Bm              Asus4   A
Well you're fallin' down,    yeah you're falling
               D    Bm   Cadd9   A                 
You're fallin' down



      D             Bm                 Asus4       A
Go on down see that wrecking ball come swinging on along
D        Bm        Cadd9       A   
Everyone knew that hotel was a goner
     D             Bm            Asus4        A
They broke all the windows, they took all the doorknobs
         D         Bm        Cadd9     A
And they hauled it away in a couple of days
    Em             Em7      Asus4         A
Now someone yelled 'timber, take off your hat'
   Em       Em7           Asus4       A
It all looks smaller down here on the ground
              D    Bm                 Asus4  A
we're fallin' down,     you're fallin' down
              D    Bm                  Cadd9  A
 yeah you're fallin',   you're fallin' down
              D    Bm                  Asus4  A
 well you're fallin',   you're fallin' down
            D     Bm            Cadd9   A 
   yeah, fallin',       fallin' down... 



     D    Bm   Asus4   A   Cadd9   Em   Em7

*I recently heard this song and fell in love with it.  So, I wanted to
establish a  foundation for playing the song.  It may not be perfect, 
and I just improvise for the solo, so I hope you enjoy it.
