[Verse 1]
G
Woke up again, watch you wasted
C
Dreaming of days, sadness we tasted
Am                                    G
Figure it out, words you chose to get by-hi
G                           C 
Listing to Elvis Costello, watching the set, rocking my pillow
Am                                     G
Scratching your vinyl, waving my body good-by-hi

[Chorus]
G                      C
Lay down, twenty feet under
      Am                                                 G
This murder’s a crime, it’s time to move away from your own
G                            C
Blame it on, early morning blunder
Am                                       G
Figure it out, time to make sense of it all

[Verse 2]
C          Am                                  G       Am
     Put a rock through your window with a slingshot
C                   Am                         G       Am
     What made you snitch on your friends for dime
C             Am                          G            Am
     Playing tables and smoking in the basement
C             Am                            G
Ain’t much to do here but sit and pass the time

[Chorus]
G                      C
Lay down, twenty feet under
       Am                                                G
This murder’s a crime, it’s time to move away from your own
G                             C
Blame it on, early morning blunder
Am                                       G
Figure it out, time to make sense of it all

[Verse 3]
G
Here come the cops, soon you get busted
C
Dangerous friends, lies we trusted
Am                                        G
Smoking a bowl and shaking my pocket for dimes
G                                C
Listening to this year’s model, blazing away mind gone mellow
Am                                               G
Holding your hand all the way along through the night

[Chorus]
G                      C
Lay down, twenty feet under
      Am                                                G
This murder’s a crime, its time to move away from your own
G                            C
Blame it on, early morning blunder
Am                                       G
Figure it out, time to make sense of it all

[Outro]
G             C
Twenty feet under
      Am                                               G
This murder’s a crime its time to move away from your own
G               C
Early morning blunder
Am                                           G
Figure it out, its time to make sense of it all
