Intro chords: C / F / G / F x2

        C                F
Some words are best not spoken
     G                   F
Some things are best not said
    C             F              F
But since this is your public execution
   F                          G
I think I'm gonna go right on ahead


    C                    F
The mailman brought your letter, babe
          G               F
Where you told me how you feel
        C                 F
An' about the things he said he told you
     G             F
That is I’m such a heel
C                F
I could never be honest
       G               F
And to you I’ve always lied
     C                F
They saw me take some other hide
      F                G
For a two-wheeled pony ride----


F                       G
You at least might have asked me
        F                        G
If the scene was really what it seemed
           C           F       G
But like a queen ruled by her jester
     F                G
Your conclusions was esteemed

    C          F  
You said I disappointed you
     G                   F
Whereby all the things I done
    C                 F
That you had convinced yourself
G              F
I was the only one
C               F
Really make you happy
G           F
Satisfy your soul
C               F 
Now you say I’ve failed
F                        G
Since we split up all my gold---


F                      G
Have you ever seen the truth before
         F               G
Have you ever even made a try
       C         F      G
Such a thing for you so impossible
          F                 G
With them themes all in your eyes

      C                  F       
Whoa, I laughed when you said you had
    G                       F
One chance to really put me down
C                    F 
And how you loved to smear my name
G               F
All over my own town
C                      F
Said some Mouse made a fool of you
    G                 F
And said don’t waste a dime
C                    F 
Your phone is out of order now, babe,
F                 G
For me you got no time----


F                             G
If this is really what you're thinkin’
         F                     G
That it’s really, really all my fault
        C       F              G
Then you better find yourself a welder baby
               F                 G        G#
Cause' you got locked up in your vault---

[All chords modulate up ½ step]

C#                F#    
Yeah, you got your point put over now
   G#                   F# 
It seems you’ve found a match
C#                         F#
Burn the bridge behind you, babe
          G#               F#
Slam your door, throw the latch
C#                   F#
I know just how your hurtin’
          G#               F#
From your feelings as they burn
   C#                F#
I’d like to say I’m sorry
         F#              G#
But it’s no longer my concern---

[Riff up ½ step from riff fig.]

   C#      F#   G#
So goodbye
G#        F#               C#  F# G#
Go on and have a real good cry
G#              F#        C#  F# G#
I've found me a brand new high
G#           F#                    C#  F#  G#
An' She just loves a two-wheel pony ride
G#         F#                 C#  F#  G#    
You better get yourself a welder, babe
G#      F#        C# F# G# F# ...   
Go on, get out of here...........[fade out]
