[Intro]

A  Bm


[Verse 1]
          A       D             A
        All my daydreams are disasters
          A       D             A
        She's the one, I think I love
          A     F#m           D
        Rivers burn, men run backwards
                A            D
        And for her, that's enough

          A       D              A
        They all come from New York City
          A       D          A
        They woke me up at dawn
         A    F#m             D
        She walked with me to the fountain
              A             D
        She held onto my arm


[Chorus]
         A
        C'mon do what you did
         D            Bm
        Roll me under New Madrid
         D                                 E
        Shake my baby and please bring her back
         A
        His death won't even be still
         D               Bm
        Carum's over the landfill
         D              E             A
        Buries us all in it's broken back


[Verse 2]
(same chords as first verse)

        There's a man conviction
        And although he's getting old
        Mr. Browning has a prediction
        We've all been told
        So come on back to New York City
        Roll your trucks in at dawn
        Walk with me to the fountain
        And hold onto my arm

[Chorus]
        last chorus ends like this
        D - E - A - F# - D - E - A

        there is a common walk up pattern used throughout (usually when
        moving from the A to D). It goes 0-2-4 (on A string a-b-c#) to D

Sounds awesome. I just wish I could figure out all the modulations Jeff makes when he plays it solo.

This song is meant to be played with a capo on 2. Sounds much better and it's easier.

In relation to the capo: G C G G (Verse)
