Rotting Strip / Crooked Fingers

G      C                  G                D     
Blurry eyes half bent and I can’t take you sober
G                 C                 G        
Tricking off the rotting strip that we’ve been 
         D
trudging under

Em               C                 G               D
We ducked into a dim lit room out where the river bends
G                      C                   G              
And turned to walk the burning bridge that we would build
     D                        C
And crossed our hearts half hoping
     G         D          C
That we could both quit smoking
     G       D          C
And kick the booze and blow
     G      D        C               D
And one day go make something of ourselves
G      C                  G                D     
Glory came and went the night we both slipped under
G      C                  G                D     
‘Neath the row of oil slicks and ancient ugly lovers
Em               C                 G               D
Some they say the price you pay is far too much to spend
G                        C                   G              
But they don’t know the cost is fair if for a while
     D                        C
It keeps your heart from crumbling

         G                          C
And we’d take what we want when we knew what we wanted
         D                          G
When we wished we had something to lose
          C           G                     C               
You were a fine young thing crammed in your tight red vinyl
 G
jeans
         C           Em           C                   D
I was a third rate going nowhere burning for nothing to do

G      C                  G                D     
Boredom settled in and I can’t take you sober
G                 C                 G                   
Strewn across the rotting strip that we’ve been building 
D
over

Em               C                 G               D
‘Til nothing made its wicked way slow creeping into view
G                      C                   G              
Where we could watch the burning bridge that we half built
D                      C
Across our hearts now broken
     G         D          C
And we could both quit smoking
     G         D          C
And kick the booze and blow
     G       D         C             D
And one day go make something of ourselves

         G                          C
And we’d take what we want when we knew what we wanted
         D                          G
When we wished we had something to lose
           C           G                     C               
You were a fine young thing crammed in your tight red vinyl jeans
         C           Em           C                     D
I was a third rate going nowhere burning for nothing to do

         G                          C
So we branded our hearts and we toasted the stars
         D                          G
Getting wasted by the light of the moon
           C           G                     C     G
you were a two bit tramp - I was a low life lying scum
          C               Em           C               D
We were a bad lay coming undone burning for someone to use
