Intro Chords: G   Em     G     Em


Verse One:
    G                                         D
   She's waitin' for me                  when I get home from work

   C                           G
  Oh but things just ain't the same
   G                                         D
   She turns off the light               and cries in the dark
  C                                    D
  and she won't answer when I call her name




Chorus:
    C                       D
    On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
    C                         D
    Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below
         G                    Em
    And  hey baby    it's the 4th of July
    G                     Em
    Hey Baby     it's the 4th of July


Verse two:
      G                                         D
     She gives me her cheek               when I want her lips
     C                                   G
     Oh but I don't have the strength to go
     G                                          D
     On the Far side of town               in a dark apartment
     C                        D
     We gave up trying so long ago

Chorus

Between chorus one and verse two replay the intro chords
John Doe and Tony Gilkyson do a "walk down" bass note run C B G E between the G
and Em chords and a G F# E walk down prior to entering the chorus lines. Listen
to the song to get the feel of the walk down.

The "walkdown" is actually

(notes) C B A G E G between the G and Em vamp in the intro and throughout the song.

There is a Middle 8/Bridge after the second chorus that goes:
C D G C C
Whatever happened I apologize Dry your tears and Baby walk
G
outside it's the 4th of July

the opening figure is then played and the chorus is replayed for the final outro

The chording for this is C(whatever) D(apologize) C(Dry)D(walk)G(July)
