C            Em                F       G
I bet you're laughing at some joke he told you
C         Em             F         Fm(maj7)
With his arm around your sunburnt shoulders
G           Am            Fmaj7              Cmaj7
I spent the morning with my face against the windowseat
G       Am              F                   G*
Looking down at all the things that got the best of me


*On the last G (at "best of me") play this to transition to the chorus:
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------3---0-------------------------|
G|---------0---0-------------------------|
D|-------0---0---------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|-----3---------------------------------|



CHORUS 1:
For this chorus play the chords as follows, which I think sounds the best, or, again, 
strum the chords.
           C                       E5
e|--------0------------------------0-------------------|

C                  E5
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  G**
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              E5
No more taxis, subway tokens
F               G**
Arms wide open, sky high honey, gone.


Immediatly after the second G** play the INTRO again (C, Csus4 X2) to transition to 
VERSE 2.



VERSE 2:
Same as VERSE 1 except a bit more strumming sounds good here (especially with more high 
e-string notes played with the chords at times)

C             Em           F          G
I take the streetcars around San Francisco
C                 Em                F      Fm(maj7)
Get winks from the pretty boys down in the Castro
G               Am              Fmaj7           Cmaj7
Through the turnstiles roll the jappy girls and shabby dolls
G            Am          F                 G*
I can't resist myself, I get their names, I never call.


CHORUS 2:
Similar to CHORUS 1, but mostly strumming this time!

C                  E5
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  G**
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              E5
No more taxis, subway tokens
F               G**              Cmaj7
Arms wide open, sky high honey, gone.
G**
Sky high honey.


BRIDGE:

Em             F                  C
You wait too long, you never leave
Em                  F     C              G
And it feels like dying, but still your heart beats

Em, F, C, G
Em, F, C, G (this second G is played for a few measures)


CHORUS 3:
Played similar to CHORUS 1 for the first two lines, however more strumming like CHORUS 2 
after that.

C                  E5
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  G**
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              E5
No more taxis, subway tokens
F               G**               Cmaj7
Arms wide open, sky high honey, gone.
G**
Sky high honey, gone.


OUTRO:
Same as INTRO, but X3 and end on C.
