intro : C / Cmaj7 / Am / G / F / G / C G /     (2x)

C 		     Cmaj7	      Am
  There's someone at my frontdoor
	  G             F              G        C   G
and he's raising his voice: is there anybody home?
C              Cmaj7        Am
  Now there's a question I like,
        G                  F        G          C   G
kept me up and I have been thinking all night long.

F        G          C      C7
  Summertime gonna cut my hair now,
F         G                C     C7
and ask a friend to die it red.
F           G             C           C7
  Spent my days watching girls in the park;
F        G                    C*
I'm just trying to fill my head.

C      Cmaj7     Am
  Yes I hate to admit
       G             F             G      C   G
but I miss you like hell miss you every day.
C          Cmaj7       Am
  And yes I hate to be asked
           G             F             G      C   G
cause everytime they do I don't know what to say

F             G      C        C7
  I need someone to come and save me,
F        G                C     C7
when I'm wrapped up in my world.
F           G      C      C7
  Need someone to poke a finger
F       G              A
in the places where it hurts.

                       G? (not to sure about this one)	    D
Baby it's driving me mad I need your warm hands back on my head,
          E	     G        D
hear you say: it's alright alright

(let's rock) A / A / A ...

C         Cmaj7           Am
  I felt myself slipping back
         G           F           G        C      G
I could feel the old man grab me by the throat.
C           Cmaj7           Am
  He slowly squeezed out the air
         G           F           G        C      G
made me look like a fool, chokin' every word

F          G       C        C7
  I know tonight I lost the fight,
F                   G            C     C7
pulled the blankets way over my head.
F         G            C           C7
  Had the old man stand guard at the door,
F            G              A
checked for ghosts under my bed,

 		      G?				    D
baby it's driving me mad and I don't think I can take it anymore.
         E           G        D
Hey old man can we cease the war.
         E           G        D
Hey old man can we cease the war.
