D            A/C#         Bm           G
Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!   Oh-oh, Oh!

                        D
It was the start of the show
       A/C#
Hiroshima
        Bm          G
and the people were shouting my name
       D
as the house lights came down
        A/C#
and the spotlight followed me out
  Bm
I waved hello to the crowd
     G
as I busted ass off the front of the stage

D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G
They're watching me, watching me fall

D
Maybe it was the rush of adrenaline
A/C#
as the concrete rose to meet my face
Bm
Maybe it was the sheer embarrassment
G
that kept me conscious and standing as I
D
crawled back on the stage
A/C#
and started pounding out the first song
Bm
There was blood on the keyboard...
G (stop)
..Oh my God.

D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G
They're watching me, watching me fall
D              A/C#             Bm       
Oh-oh, Oh!     Oh-oh, Oh!       Oh-oh, Oh!
        G
They're watching me, watching me fall

You wanna see what's in my head?

You wanna see what's in my head?

I got pictures of what's in my head

I got pictures of what's in my head

They took'em in Tokyo
G
And I brought 'em back with me to the USA

D              A/C#             Bm

Spoken Outro: D (jam)

It's true, I fell. 
And I hit my . . .  my head, you know.
I mean my head . . . my ankle, my ankle was black 
But my head got a concussion.
They took x-rays and . . . 
I asked the doctor . . .  if he could tell whether I was . . . 
I don't speak Japanese so . . .
