About this tab version
This is based on the acoustic video posted here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOmixpI0Beg), not the album version. I tried to capture the walkdown spirit of the "America, warm my face" section. I changed the chords in the intro and bridge and made various other corrections. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
Am G C Em Am G C D

[Verse]
Am  C  Em    G   Am  C  D  G
Aw    it's dark outside
Am C    Em   G         Am         G C D
   i've been trying to get a ride
         Am   G         Am    D
While my body waits, my body waits
C C/B Am Am/G G G/A      Am Am/G
  America       warm my face
C  C/B      Am Am/G G G/A       C
  i've been trying  to turn the page

[Pre-Chorus]
Am             G    Em
  Once I was a little boy,
Am              D     G
  staring at my shoes
Am          Em        C              Am    C  D
  You came along and found me in the chicken coop
    C                Am
But time takes over, I can't say when
C                D
Time takes over, may we do it again

[Chorus]
                 G                Am
Take me to the beachhead let's go over
                                     D
All of those rocks at the end of the road
                     G                     Am                Em
And take me down to main street with no clothes on with our bare feet on the
C              G              Am            Em
Painted yellow lines with our shadows far behind us
        C              G                 Am                      D
Broke into that summer school and fooled around on the infirmary cot
           C                 G                    Am                 Em
And we can be like all those fairies making their rain angels in the eddies
      C             G             Am
And I have no expectation just an adolescent heart

[Bridge]
Am G C Em Am G C D

[Verse]
Am  C  Em    G   Am  C  D  G
Aw    it's dark outside
Am C    Em   G         Am         G C D
   i've been trying to get a ride
         Am   G         Am    D
While my body waits, my body waits
C C/B Am Am/G G G/A      Am Am/G
  America       warm my face
C  C/B      Am Am/G G G/A       C
  i've been trying  to turn the page

[Pre-Chorus]
Am             G    Em
  Once I was a little boy,
Am              D     G
  staring at my shoes
Am          Em        C              Am    C  D
  You came along and found me in the chicken coop
    C                Am
But time takes over, I can't say when
C                D
Time takes over, may we do it again

[Chorus]
               G                  Am
Take me to the beachhead let's go over
                                     D
All of those rocks at the end of the road
                 G                  Am
Help me down the seawall let's find Marci
           Em           C             G
See if she got that invitation to the movie,
                  Am                Em
the one where the kids break out of juvie
         C               G                  Am                  D
And then by their own admission they go and turn themselves all in
             C                G
Just as they get there to the station,
          Am                      Em
The young one wheels and begs the pavement
            C             G                     Am              D
For brother speed to make arrangements with the spirits of the night

[Chorus]
               G                   Am
Take me to the race track let's go bet on
       C                          D
Aw the one that no one expects to win and
                   G                    Am            Em                 C
Let's bet on the skinny horse he will surely try the hardest to come in first
                  G                  Am                    Em
I bet you for the winner they put on some kind of fancy dinner
                    C            G
Let's be like those Philadelphia sisters
          Am                            D
That have prayed straight for a hundred years
  C            G               Am             Em
I have no expectation, just to be here in the present
      C              G        Am               D
And behold you for a second before it all goes away

[Outro]
  Em
Haa ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ah
C
Ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ah
Em
Ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh
  Am                 D
Before that all goes away
       Em
Haa ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ah
C
Ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ah
Em
Ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ahh ah ah
Am   D              Em                            C
Ahhh ahhh and those painted yellow lines with our shadows far behind
        Em                               Am                      D
Broke into that summer school and fooled around on the infirmary cot
       Em                                     C
We can be like all those fairies making their rain angels in the eddies
      Em                          Am         D
And I have no expectation just an adolescent heart
