FIRE ENGINE RED VERSION
STANDARD TUNING
NO CAPO

C    D
G    Bm
C

C                          D
 Tryin' to get her to stay home
                                         G
 was worst than pulling a sword from the stone
                              Bm
 I'm sweating bullets in Palos Verdes
                         C
 Please, don't leave me on my own

C                       D
 I wanted her to be my wife
                            G
 I wanted her to want that life
                           Bm
 It ended the same way it started
                            C
 Behind the door, holding that knife


        C          C               Am 
 While I'm happy, I was wrong and mislead
             C                D           G
 She took me to your lipstick fire engine red


C                              D
 You were brighter than a neon sea
                            G
 of signs that say "no vacancy"
                                    Bm
 The few brave men you've let check in
                                    C
 still brag about the times they've been

C                         D
 Over the limit, drunk on wine
                       G
 Below the Mason Dixon line
                              Bm
 I promised that I'd start to pray
                                C
 if the police looked the other way


      C        C           Am
 And I didn't go to jail, wind up dead
               C                   D           G
 I prayed each night for your lips fire engine red


          C                               D
 They said: "You cannot clear a jump that wide
                         G
 A stunt like that is suicide"
                            Bm
 But when I got the courage to
                              C
 I spent the night alone with you

C                         D
 I think I'm the luckiest guy
                          G
 I used to be too numb to cry
                               Bm
 I don't know how I timed this right
                           C
 You're just the prettiest sight


      C          C                  Am
 In the movies people change when they bled
           C                     D           G
 Inside my veins your lipstick's fire engine red


C                     D
 I must admit I'm insecure
                                  G
 That's what all those women were for
                        Bm
 I don't wanna be who I am
                        C
 If nobody else gives a damn

C                            D
 We've been together 'bout a year
                                 G
 I can't say that don't bring me fear
                               Bm
 I'm scared to come home every night
                                  C
 I'm scared to keep the checkbook tight


       C         C                    Am
 Renting movies in your room, in your bed 
               C                    D           G
 You kissed my cheek, with lipstick fire engine red


C                            D
 You always wear the same perfume
                             G
 It reminds you of the hotel room
                            Bm
 The one in which I swore I knew
                                      C
 I'd spent the rest (of) my life with you

C                                   D
 But I tell you "you should take it off
                               G
 I don't wanna smell like that stuff"
                               Bm
 Sometimes my heart it gets so dark
                            C
 You sit and watch it fall apart


    C             C                 Am
 Run a needle through what's left, tie the thread
              C                   D           G
 Don't let me leave your lipstick fire engine red


C                              D
 What's two people supposed to do
                                G
 When restlessness gets hold of you
                             Bm
 I'm drowning in my drinking cup
                              C
 I can't, I will not give you up

C                              D
 But if flowers never stay and bloom
                        G
 I'd do we in a one bed room
                           Bm
 We're both victims to our fear
                            C
 I'll be a man and hold you near


    C               C                Am
 If you leave me, you'll survive in my head
            C                   D           G
 I won't forget your lipstick's fire engine red
