Outtake from Tallahassee, I'm going off of the version that's up on Daytrotter.

Standard tuning. The chords:

    C   Cmaj7   Fmaj7   Fmaj7 no5   F   Am   G

C Cmaj7 x4
Fmaj7 Fmaj7 no5 x4
repeat twice

C                                 F
Window mounted air conditioning unit,
Am                       G
      Humming like a hive.
C                                  F
We want to send postcards to the friends we used to have,
          Am           G              F              G
Rub their noses in the ugly fact that we are still alive,
          F    G
And we play,
             C    Am
Lovers reggae,
     F           G
On accordion and banjo,
F                    G
When the moon is high.
       F  G            C   Am
And we lie on the floor,
       F              G
Get suspicious of the people
       F                      G
Who've just moved in next door.

C                              F
    The bad taste in our mouths,
The twinkle in your eye
Good things never last
Bad things never die.


Wind chime from Tahiti that we found down at the auction,
Tolls its minor chord.
And i can't think of one thing in this whole wide blessed world,
That's more dangerous and frightening,
Than you when you get bored.
And we go though,
Scads of money.
Don't know where it comes from,
Don't know where it goes.
And we stare, out the window
See the poison flowers the neighbours grow,
Sprouting up in nice neat rows.

The swelling in our limbs,
The twinkle in your eye,
Good things never last,
Bad things never die.
