INTRO
A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E
A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

VERSE                                                                                
A                          E                   D             A
I broke free on a Saturday morning, I put the pedal to the floor
         A                E          D                    A
Headed north on Mills Avenue and listened to the engine roar

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

My broken house behind me and good things ahead

a girl named Cathy wants a little of my time

Six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking Aha listen to the engine whine

CHORUS
               A                     E          D         A
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me
               A                     E          D         A
I am going to make it though this year if it kills me

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

VERSE

I played video games in a drunken haze
I was seventeen years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E

And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
trading swigs from a bottle all bitter and clean
locking eyes holding hands
twin high maintenance machines

CHORUS

BRIDGE
F#m                              A
I drove home in the California dusk,
F#m                                   A
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
F#m                                   A
Pictured the look on my stepfather's face
D                           E
ready for the bad things to come.

VERSE
I down shifted as I pulled into the driveway
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear
The scene ends badly as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear
There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year

CHORUS

A    C#m   Bsus4  A
A    E     D      E
