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.
