This is Gaslight Anthem's 'Wherefore Art Thou Elvis', second track from their first EP 
'Señor and the Queen".

Tuning: D Standard (DGCFAD)

Intro: Em, D, C, D (x4)

Verse 1:
   Em                G          D       Em         G      D
I cut my teeth on the stone of a teenage romance
          Em                      G             D               Em  G  D
I was the salt of the earth, I was hard, and the last of the independents
        C              D           Em
And the breath from my chest I was blowing kerosene
            C               D                Em
My lips and fingertips were stone, I wore my heart on my jeans
           C              D             Em
I sang the blues like the dogs left too long in the street
        C        D              Em
I still sing the blues with the dogs


Chorus:
          G              D               Em
And I got half a mind to let it all burn up in this fire
            G                  D             Em
That's been burning through my veins since I first learned to cry
               G                D              Em
I'd watch this whole night come down and never miss her again
        C                        D
I never felt right and never fit in

            (Intro)
Walking in my own skin


Verse 2:
          Em                      G         D              Em      G      D
Now I got scars like the number of stars, my mind's full of vipers
          Em                      G      D                       Em   G   D
I got the dust of the desert in my bones, coming through the amplifiers
            C           D            Em
Between the minor chord fall and the fourth and the fifth
       C           D           Em
It's a broken Hallelujah and a pain in my fist
          C              D            Em
I wash my hands like the man with the blood on his teeth
         C    D       Em
Over and over without relief


Chorus 2:
          G               D             Em
And I got nothing for you darling but a story to tell
          G           D                Em
About the rain on the pavement and the sound as it fell
               G                D              Em
I'd watch this whole night come down and never miss her again
        C                        D
I never felt right and never fit in
              G       D              Em
Walking in my old man shoes, with my scientist heart
        G           D            Em
I got a fever and a beaker and a shot in the dark
         G        D              Em
I need a Cadillac ride, I need a soft summer night
      C                       D
Say a prayer for my soul, Señorita


Outro:
                Em       D           C
Because I've been dying out here in the cold and the snow
           Em             D           C
I've got a picture of you, Mama, to remind me of home
       Em       D          C
On the hood of a Dodge on a Saturday night
      C                        D
Say a prayer for my soul, Señorita

Needs a capo on the fourth fret, but otherwise this works
