This song is played with a capo on the second fret. For the part with no chords, 
it sounds good if you put your fingers across the strings so that it mutes the sound and strum.

INTRO  A
                    Em         D
I am an American aquarium drinker
A            Em       D
I assassin down the avenue
A                      Em         D
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
A                         Em          D
What was I thinking when I let go of you

(A   Em  D)x2  

A                      Em             D 
Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning
A                        Em           D
Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers
A                      Em            D
This is not a joke so please stop smiling
A                           Em             D
What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt

(A   Em  D)x2 

A                              Em          D
I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
A                         Em            D
Take me from the inside, baby hold on tight
A                           Em              D
You were so right when you said I've been drinking
A                              Em       D
What was I thinking when we said good night

(A   Em  D)x2 

A                           Em              D
I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn
A                     Em              D
You're quite a quiet domino, bury me now
A                               Em                 D
Take off your band-aid 'cause I don't believe in touchdowns
A                     Em            D
What was I thinking when we said hello

A                           Em            D 
I always thought that if I held you tightly
A                             Em         D
You'd always love me like you did back then
A                          Em              D
Then I fell asleep in the city kept blinking
A                          Em           D
What was I thinking when I let you back in

N.C. 
I am trying to break your heart
I am trying to break your heart
But still I would be lying if I said it wasn't easy
I am trying to break your heart

(A   Em   D)x4

A            Em          D
Disposable Dixie cup drinker
A           Em         D
I assassin down the avenue
A                      Em             D
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
A                         Em           D
What was I thinking when I let go of you
