Verse 1
B7                          E
 We took the freeway out of town
B7                          E
 We found a place to settle down
B7                          G#             C#m  E7
 We bought a driveway and a swingset and a dog
                      Amaj7
You got your very own bathroom
                  Am7
I got my very own workshop in the basement
              E       G#     C#m     A
We sit around staring at the wall-to-wall
     E           G#     C#m      A
Take field trips to our favorite mall
E       G#      C#m      A       F#m              B7
Waiting for the day when all the kids grow up and leave us here

Chorus
       E
If you need me
        B7
I'll be downstairs
         E 
With the shop vac
        A                         E
You can call but I probably won't hear you
             F#m                    B7sus4
Because it's loud with the shop vac on 
                               B7
(for heaven's sake it's really loud with the shop vac on)
              E
But you'll be OK
                B7
Cause you'll be upstairs
         E
With the TV
        A                        E
You can cry and I probably won't hear you
             F#m           B7       E   A   E
Because it's loud with the shop vac on

Verse 2
B7                        E
 We hung a flag above the door
B7                               E
 Checked out the gourmet grocery store
B7                      G#              C#m  E7
 I bought a mower I can ride around the yard
                      Amaj7
But we haven't got real friends
                 Am7
And now even the fake ones have stopped calling
         E      G#     C#m      A
Maybe if you forget to hide the keys
     E      G#      C#m  A
I'll take a ride to Applebee's
     E         G#       C#m   A       F#m             B7
I'll come home drunk on daiquiris and throw up on the neighbor's lawn

Chorus
       E
If you need me
        B7
I'll be downstairs
         E 
With the shop vac
        A                         E
You can call but I probably won't hear you
             F#m                    B7sus
Because it's loud with the shop vac on 
                               B7
(for heaven's sake it's really loud with the shop vac on)
              E
But you'll be OK
                B7
Cause you'll be upstairs
         E
With the TV
        A                        E
You can cry and I probably won't hear you
             F#m           B7       E   A   E
Because it's loud with the shop vac on

Bridge
Cmaj7                G                           Cmaj7
I like the Starbucks here that's better than the other one
          G
Cause the other one's not as good
Cmaj7                     C#m7b5                         D
They really need to put a light there cause it's hard to turn
             B7
It's hard to make a left turn

[Vincent's Guitar Solo]***


Verse 3
B7                           E
 And when it's time to go to bed
B7                         E
 I'm still awake inside my head
B7                         G#                C#m  E7
 I'm floating up above the house and looking down
                   Amaj7
I guess I gotta go back there
                        Am7
I guess there never was any other answer
           E       G#       C#m     A
And as the freeway hums the cars go by
    E          G#    C#m       A
The headlights roll across the sky
E    G#     C#m     A     F#m               B7
Many miles away but I can see them speeding through the dark


Chorus
       E
If you need me
        B7
I'll be downstairs
         E 
With the shop vac
        A                         E
You can call but I probably won't hear you
             F#m                    B7sus
Because it's loud with the shop vac on 
                               B7
(for heaven's sake it's really loud with the shop vac on)
              E
But you'll be OK
                B7
Cause you'll be upstairs
         E
With the TV
        A                        E
You can cry and I probably won't hear you
             F#m           B7       E   A   E
Because it's loud with the shop vac on
