Written by: Doug Hopkins
Primary Contributor: stryder1017

Note:  Piece of advice.  If you are playing an acoustic, the Second Guitar sounds 
great, but if you're using an electric go with the Primary.

Verse 1:
             B5             C#5  D
So I guess I must have just been dreaming
                 A5               E
When I thought I heard myself say no
          B5            C#5 D                  A5   D5 A5
Anyway it looks like no one heard me so here I go


Verse 2:
                         B5     C#5 D5  
Cause when you're in the company of strangers 
            A5                 E
Or just the strangers you call friends
B5              C#5 D5                           A5  D5 A5
You know before you start just how it's going to end

Chorus 1:
            B5             C#5   D5               
So remember When the doors swing open 
            A5                E
and all the drinks are passed around
            B5           C#5  D5            A5 D5 A5
Anytime the pickins look too easy - hold me down

Verse 3:
                 B5         C#5  D5
I can't remember why I like this feeling 
             A5              E
When it only seems to let me down
                B5            C#5 D5            A5 D5 A5
Soon I find I'm searching for the exit from the ground

Verse 4:  
               B5         C#5  D5
If I think the room is turning faster
                 A5           E
Then I think the music is too loud
                   B5         C#5 D5              A5 D5 A5
By then I've lived another broken story to let me down

Chorus 2:
            B5               C#5   D5
So remember When those doors swing open 
            A5                E
and all the drinks are passed around
                    B5         C#5 D5                 A5 D5 A5
When half the party moves into the bathroom - hold me down

Chorus 3:
                    B5          C#5 D5
Or if you're at the tail end of the evening 
        A5             E
And Dr. Feelgood comes around
            B5           C#5  D5            A5 D5 A5            
Anytime the pickins look too easy - hold me down

               Down if I've gone too far

(Haven't figured out this Fill/Solo) It does end on E and you hold it for 4 seconds.

Play this once:

B5 - C#5 - D5 - A5 - E
B5 - C#5 - D5 - A5 - D5 - A5

Verse 5:
               B5             C#5  D5
Well I guess I must have just been reeling
            A5              E
When I felt myself begin to fall
              B5            C#5 D5                   A5 D5 A5
I realize I'm bounding down the hallways and off the walls

Verse 6: 
              B5          C5# D5
If my bed was standing in the corner 
             A5                 E
I could just fall into it right now
                     B5         C#5 D5                A5  D5 A5      
And know that I'd be staring at the ceiling going round

Chorus 4: 
            B5               C#5   D5
So remember When those doors swing open 
            A5                E
and all the drinks are passed around
                    B5         C#5 D5                 A5 D5 A5
When half the party moves into the bathroom - hold me down

Chorus 5:
                    B5          C#5 D5
Or if you're at the tail end of the evening 
        A5             E
And Dr. Feelgood comes around
            B5           C#5  D5            A5 D5 A5            
Anytime the pickins look too easy - hold me down

               Down if I want that part

    Dsus2,      A,   Asus4, Dsus2,     A,      Asus4, E 

|--0-------0---0-------0---0-------0---0------0----------------|

|--------------------------------------------------------------|

               Down if I've gone too far - Tell me that it'll never be that way.  


The conclusion is a little too complicated for me, and the Fill Stryder used was 
inadequate so I didn't bother.  If you come up with improvements feel free to
