G#m   F#   E    F#

G#m                   B           F#            G#m       B        F#
I cut my teeth on the stone of a teenage romance
G#m                               B              F#                  G#m   B   F#
I was the salt of the earth, I was hard, and the last of the independents.
E5                       F#5          G#5
And in the breath from my chest I was blowing kerosene,
E5                          F#5              G#5   
My lips and fingertips were stone, I wore my heart on my jeans.
E5                        F#5            G#5
I sang the blues like the dogs left too long in the street,
E5               F#5            G#5 
I still sing the blues with the dogs.

E                        F#          G#m
And I got half a mind to let it all burn up in this fire,
E                                F#            G#m
I've had been burning through my veins since I first learned to cry.
E                               F#              G#m
I'd watch this whole night come down and never miss her again.
E                             F#
I never felt right and never fit in,

Walking in my own skin.

Intro Riff

Verse (played the same):

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

And I got nothing for you darling but a story to tell,
About the rain on the pavement and the sound as it fell.
I'd watch this whole night come down and never miss her again.
I never felt right and never fit in.


When Brian plays this part slowly, he uses the same chord shapes from the verse
(B, F#, G#m), instead of just holding the B chord and changing the root note.  

Also, notice the "Say a Prayer for my soul, Senorita" is different on the last go round.

              B       B/F#           B/G#
Walking in my old man shoes, with my scientist heart.
        B           B/F#         B/G#
I got a fever and a beaker and a shot in the dark.
         B        B/F#           B/G#   
I need a Cadillac ride, I need a soft summer night,
E                       F#
Say a prayer for my soul Se?orita.

                  G#m       F#          E
Because I've been dying out here in the cold and the snow.
        G#m            F#        E
I got a picture of you, Mama, to remind me of home.
       G#m       F#         E
On the hood of a Dodge on a Saturday night,
      B                   F#
Say a prayer for my soul, Se?orita.
