C Fmaj7 Am (2x)

C                        Fmaj7   Am
This town bleeds like an open wound
Am                        G    C
You found no peace in a rented room
C                        Fmaj7       Am
And every brick sings a different tune
Am                         G    C
Either kissed or cried on every avenue
C                                    Fmaj7    Am
Well as she steals an hour from the darkest night
Am                        G           C
Wraps it up in gold and gives me some light
C                                      Fmaj7     Am
‘til there's nothing but shivers going down my spine
Am*                           G*             C
Rather wake for an hour than sleep for a lifetime
C                                   Fmaj7   Am
Well I make my way through the rain torn street
Am                          G       C
Past the drunks and their pieces of meat
C                       Fmaj7   Am
The alcohol now clouds their minds
Am                     G      C
Souls are wishing for closing time

Am *                       G*               C
And the coat she bought is bound to keep me warm
Am *                 G*              Fmaj7
Buttons are hanging off, sleeves are torn
Am *              G*              C
The wind outside howls like a newborn

C Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 C (2x)

C                           Fmaj7                    Am
Please tell me why I’m here before you tell me to stay
Am                        G    C
The big bang doesn’t care if I pray
C                             Fmaj7      Am
Well I could fill my time in a million ways
Am                            G    C
Put a little bit of sunshine in my day
C                            Fmaj7      Am
There’s still a swing on the old oak tree
Am                          G        C
Where we used to play, my brother and me
C                         Fmaj7    Am
And sometimes I feel like going home
Am                        G    C
But home is a childhood memory
C                          Fmaj7       Am
Well I cried a tear when I heard the news
Am                           G    C
Really nothing that I could say or do
C                        Fmaj7      Am
It’s the hardest lesson I ever learned
Am                        G    C
Light a candle just to watch it burn

Am *                       G *           C
So you get caught up in a raging winter storm
         Am *                     G *         Fmaj7
All the lights are off and the curtains are drawn
         Am *                    G *             C
You can live like a king but you die like a newborn

C Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 C (2x)

C                                 Fmaj7   Am
Well I rolled a take me from place to place
Am                         G    C
Gonna let this hair grow from my face
C                      Fmaj7     Am
And where I’m bound I cannot tell
Am                                  G      C
If you believe the bible then I’m bound for hell  (Pause here for a bit)
C                         Fmaj7  Am
Well I got a lover now she got me
Am                       G    C
She knows a place inside my dreams
C                           Fmaj7   Am
If I sell this ring it’ll make me sad
Am                        G    C
I’ll buy me a brand new sleeping bag
C                    GmaddD#       Am
There’s a map of the stars on her chest
             Fmaj7       G               C
There’s a universe sitting behind her eyes
         C          GmaddD#       Am
But I’ll meet you at 6 after some rest
            Fmaj7*            G*              C*
We’ll get paid, we’ll get drunk and we’ll get by

Start Strumming Here:

Am          G              C
Chase the sunset until the morning
       Am              G             Fmaj7
We’ll sleep through a thousand world wars
         Am                     G               C
And I’ll smile like a widow but cry like a newborn

C Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 C (2x)
