Intro and verse, hammer part

             E             C              G          D

   W/ hammers:

I don't care to say what
   C             G           D
I failed to recognize
             Em            C             G         D
Every single day from the poker to the prize

W/o hammers:

Running out of Springfield
    C                     G           D
I worked for the Capitol Air in the [bags?]
               Em         C
Found a woman there who said
                   G                   D
She had a mind to make me a messenger man


Am                              G        D
If my father took his life for national plan
I don't care
Am                                              G            D
I'm not about to stake my grave with a paper and a bucket of plans
Never ever

I can take the pillowcases off the yellow pillows
G               D
Make a property line from the bed
In the living room, the living room, the morning papers
G                    D
Make the most out of nothing at all

W/ hammers:

                Em           C            G            D
So we took the room with a view of the run[a]way
                Em            C             G          D
I took off my clothes and she took it for a holiday


W/o hammers:

            Em           C                  G         D
I was taken for all the things that I never had before
Running out of Springfield
     C                         G                    D
She left me with a note saying "Bobby don't look back"


Am                                         G           D
And if my wife took a bicycle ride with a knife in her hand
I saw it coming
Am                                    G             D
All the shadflies run at once with a trumpet or a train
Oh I'm running from it

Wait a minute, wait a minute
                     G         D
Give a minute, baby, I can explain the aftershave
Wait a minute, wait a minute, give a minute
G                    D
Bobby got a shadfly caught in his hair
