Truckstop Honeymoon - Breakfast in Seattle
Tabbed By: Danny Halstead

Intro:

strum C G F G (x2)

The lyrics in this song are a bit hard for an Aussie to interpret but here goes...

C
Start the day as you left off
G
A smoke is sure to clear your cough
F
Take a sip from a wounded soldier
G
Through your coat over your shoulder
C
Days are long and need punctuation
G
The first stop is a gas station
F
Buy a pack of Old Golds
and some kind of beer you don't have to keep cold
C
Coz the fridge is broke and that's alright
G
You got no food no apetite
F
You drink champagne and Krystal Lite
G                      C
That's breakfast in Seattle


C
Take a walk up Denny Way
G
Try to get the blood back to your feet
F
Go find the Green Cat Cafe
G
and order someting to eat
C
Two eggs over hard
G
Paid for on a gas card
F
Your Daddy never reads the statement
G
He gets the Bills, then he pays them
C
You meet Jimmy like you always do
G
He's always in the same shape as you
F
You walk together down Denny Way
G
Shouting out at the traffic
C
Hey you slaves, you coffee jerks
F
You CEOs, you're late for work
C
You go back to the monastery
G
Where they are shootin' up in the sanctuary
F
You got a pallet on the floor
G
What do you need a god damn job for?
C
You got credit and you got cash
G
You got coffee and you got hash
F 
You've got friends, I can never have
G
I don't care, life's not so bad
C
Sure it's cold but you don't complain
G
You'll like Seattle when its gray and raining
F
You've had enough of the sunny south
G
And redneck clubs, they sing about
C
You don't miss the slower pace
G
Your mind--, it just loves to race
F
You got means and you know ways
G
You can stay away for days and days
C
Here's the church and here's the steeple
G
and my hypodermic space needle
F
Open the door and take a peek
G
On the fingers there are the people
C
Suddenly it all comes clear
G
You can see all the way to Melbourne (1) here
F 
Until the rain sets in for good
G
Don't want your car washed, its understood.


C
Baby you talk a mile a minute
G
and you tell the story, hey I'm in it
F
I'll be walking with you all the way
G
Up the hill, to the Green Cat Cafe


C
Then it ends, like it began
G
With an ashtray and an empty can
F
Had a battle you can stand
G                  C
at Breakfast in Seattle

(1) I know it's not Melbourne but I'm an Aussie and that's 
the nearest city that sounds like what they sing!

Phew! What an epic saga! This is the best I can with trying to
understand the accents. Some of the phrasing is a bit weird and
I am happy to be corrected on any lyrics that I have got wrong.

Please rate and or comment on this song!

Have fun with it.
