Part 1
A(1)                
 Times were so tough,
D6 
 But not as tough as they are now.
Fill 1
A(1)
 We were so close,
D5                        F#m
 And nothing came between us,
        Badd11
Not the world,
   G#           E
No personal situations

Part 2
A(1)
 Thick as thieves us,
D6
 We'll stick together for all time,
Fill 1
A
 And we meant it,
D5                            F#m
 But it turned out just for a while,
   B(1)
We stole,
    G#                         E
The friendship that bound us together.
Fill 2

Part 3
   A(1)                             E
We stole from the schools and their libraries,
   A(1)                          E
We stole from the drugs that sent us to sleep,
   A(1)                       E
We stole from the drink that made us sick,
         A(1)          E
We stole anything that we couldn't keep,
       F#m
And it was enough,
   G#m                  A(2)
We didn't have to spoil anything,
     B(2)
We'd allways be,
As thick as thieves.
Fill 1

Part 4
C#m                  G#5   A(2)  B(1)
  Like a perfect stranger,
C#m                G#5   A(2)  B(1)
  You came into my life.
C#m                   A(2)
  And like a perfect lone ranger,
B(2)
Rode away, rode away,

run away, run away.

Part 5
(Instrumental)
Play the same as part 1+2

Part 6
             A(1)                       E
We stole the love from young girls in ivory towers,
         A(1)              E
We stole autumn leaves and summer showers,
             A(1)                        E
We stole the sun and the wind that says you are free,
         A(1)            E
We stole eveyrthing that we could see,
       F#m
But it wasn't enough,
    G#m                      A(2)
And now we've gone and spoilt everything,
    B(2)
Now we're no longer,
As thick as thieves.

Part 7
C#m   G#5   A(2)   B(1)
C#m                G#5   A(2)  B(1)
  You came into my life
C#m                  A(2)
And like a perfect stranger,
B(2)
Walked away, walked away
G#5 (Strum fast)
Walked away, walked away

Part 8
Same as part 2

Part 9
We stole the burning sun in the open sky,
We stole the twinkling stars in the black night,
We stole the green belt they made us believe,
We stole everything that we could see,
But something came along and changed our minds,
Now I don't know what and know why,
But we seemed to grow up in a flash of time,
As we watched our ideals heplessly unwind.
A(1)               E
We're no longer as thick as thieves, no,
A(1)                      E
We're not as thick as we used to be, no,
A(1)               E
We're no longer as thick as thieves, no,
A(1)                      E
We're not as thick as we used to be,
      F#m
No it wasn't enough,
    G#m                      A(2)
And now we've gone and spoilt everything,
    B(2)
Now we're no longer,
As thick as thieves.
A(2)
E
