Standard Tuning, CAPO 4

CHORUS
Am            F                   C
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    C      C         Am
Got out of bed at all

            F                 C
The morning rain clouds up my window

    C       C         Am
And I can't see at all

         F                C
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         C       C         Am
But your picture on my wall

        F               C
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     C      C   Am
It's not so bad

(The whole song continues in that chord progression)

Am            F                   C
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    C      C         Am
Got out of bed at all

            F                 C
The morning rain clouds up my window

    C       C         Am
And I can't see at all

         F                C
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         C       C         Am
But your picture on my wall

        F               C
It reminds me that it's not so bad

     F
It's not so bad

1ST VERSE

Am                     F                           C
Dear Slim, I wrote you, but you still ain't callin

                                 C                    C   Am
I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom

                               F                             C
I sent two letters back in Autumn, you must not have got 'em

                                      C              C         
There probably was a problem with the post office or somethin'

Am                                 F                     C
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em

                        C                  C        Am
But anyway, what's been up man, how's your daughter?

 C                                C                    C        Am
I had a friend kill himself over some b**** who didn't want him

                          F                             C
I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man

                              C                C             Am

My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

    C      C         Am
Got out of bed at all

            F                 C
The morning rain clouds up my window

    C       C         Am
And I can't see at all

         F                C
And even if I could it'll all be gray

         C       C         Am
But your picture on my wall

It reminds me that it's not so bad

It's not so bad

2ND VERSE

     Am                               F
Dear Slim, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have a chance,

C                              C                                   Am
I ain't mad, I think it's just f***** up that you don't answer fans

                            F
If you didn't wanna talk to me outside your concert

           C                                   C             C
You didn't have to, but you could've signed an autograph for Matthew

         Am                             F
That's my little brother man, he's only six years old

                 C
We waited in the blistering cold for you

    C                  C            Am    
For four hours and you just said no

                                 F
That's pretty s****y man, you're like his f***ing idol

   C                                  F                       Am
He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do

                        F
I ain't that mad though, I just don't like being lied to

      F                       C               C
Remember when we met in Denver, you said if I write you

          Am                           F
You would write back, see I'm just like you in a way

                C
I never knew my father neither

           C                  C                Am
He used to always cheat on my mom and beat her

                            F
I can relate to what you're saying in your songs

          C                          C               C    
So when I have a s****y day, I drift away and put em on

              Am                                 F
Cause I don't really got s*** else, so that s*** helps when I'm depressed

C                           F
I even got a tattoo of your name across the chest

Am                             F
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds

         C                            C             C
Its like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me

        Am                              F
See everthing you say is real, and I respect you cause you tell it

       C                               C              C
My girlfriend's jealous, because I talk about you 24/7

Am                                     F
But she don't know you like I know you slim, no one does

C                                         C                 C
She don't know what it was like for people like us growin' up

          Am                               F
You gotta call me man, I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose

          C
Sincerely yours, Stan, p.s.

F
We should be together too



Am            F                   C
My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin' why

                              C                 C
This'll be the last package I ever send your a**

              Am
It's been six months and still no words

           F
I don't deserve it

                  C
I know you got my last two letters

               C                     C
I wrote the addresses on them perfect

Am                                    F

Am                           F                      C
Hey Slim, I drank a fifth of vodka, dare me to drive?

                           F
You know that song by Phil Collins, In the Air of the Night

Am                                     F
About that guy who could've saved that other guy from drowning

    C                           C                         C
But didn't, but Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him

Am                                     F
That's kinda how this is, you could've rescued me from drowning

         C                        C            C
Now it's too late, I'm on a 1,000 downers now, I'm drowsy

Am                          F
And all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call

C                                    C           C
I hope you know I ripped all of your pictures off my wall

Am                           F                          C                
I love you Slim, we could've been together, think about it

                    F                                           Am
You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it

                               F
And when you dream, I hope you can't sleep and you scream about it

C                             C                  C                Am
I hope your conscience eats at you and you can't breathe without me

             F
See Slim, shut up b****, I'm trying to talk

C                       C                       C
Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screamin' in the trunk

Am                                            F
But I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you

C                                      C                 C      Am
Cause if she suffocates, she'll suffer more, then she'll die too

               F                               C
Well, gotta go, I'm almost under the bridge now

Oh s***, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this s*** out?

C                                     C                  C
You say your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?

Am                                   F
Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that

C                           C             C               Am

You got some issues, Stan, I think you need some counseling

To keep your a** from bouncin' off the walls when you get down some

C                                  C                    C     Am
That type of s*** will make me not want us to meet each other

                            F
I really think you and your girlfriend need each other

C                                   C
Or maybe you just need to treat her better

C                 Am                          F
I hope you get to read this letter, I hope it reaches you in time
                
           C                                  F
Before you hurt yourself, I think that you'll be doin just fine

         Am                              F
If you relax a little, I'm glad that I inspire you, but Stan

    C                           C                C             Am
Why are you so mad? Try to understand, that I do want you as a fan

I just don't want you to do some crazy s***

            C                                C              C            Am
I seen this one s*** on the news a couple of weeks ago that made me sick

                                  F
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge

            C                                   C                 C
And had his girlfriend in his trunk and she was pregnant with his kid

           Am                            F
And in the car they found a tape, didn't say who it was to

        C                            F              Am
Come to think about it, his name was, it was you...
