[Notes]
* (p) = palm-muted

* The F#/G chord is a G power chord with the root lowered a half-step:

["Chesterfield King"]

[ GC GC GC GC ]

[Verse]
G                  E        B (p)       C (p)
  We stood in your room and laughed out loud
G            E              A                    C
Suddenly the laughter died, we were caught in an eye to eye
G               E             B (p)  C (p)
  We sat on the floor and did we sit close
G                  E
I could smell your thoughts and thought,
 A              C
"Do you want to touch a lot like me?"
G     C               G
  Too scared to say a thing

[Pre-chorus]
B (p)               C (p)
Left your house and kicked myself
E (p)              D (p)         C
Put those feelings on a shelf to die
B (p)             C (p)
Guess I'm not the gambling type
E (p)             D (p)         C
Think of what the two of us had lost   Had lost

[Verse]
I needed some time to think it out
7-Eleven parking lot, a toothless woman turned and stopped
Gave her a dime and a Chesterfield
She leaned down and kissed my cheek
I was scared but it felt sweet   Felt so sweet

[Pre-chorus]
She asked me if I had a name
Told her I was glued up on some chick
We sat and smoked against the wall
Drank a beer, felt the chill of fall   Of fall

[Chorus]
G           F#/G             E        D            C
  I took my car and drove it down the hill by your house
  B        A
I drove so fast
G             F#/G             E         D         C
  The wind it couldn't cool me down so I turned it around
    B         A
And came back up
G          F#/G            E           D
  You were waiting on your step, steam chilling off your
C          B             A
breath and water in your eyes
G                F#/G       E           D
  We pulled each other into one, parkas clinging on the
C         B            D
lawn, and kissed right there

...and repeat

[Pre-chorus]
Said my chicks all smoke these things
Handed you a Chesterfield King
Held your hand and watched TV
Traced the little lines along your palm   Your palm

[Repeat chorus]

[Play chorus progression once, palm muting all chords]

[End on G]
