intro

C,A,G

              Am
Look what you started,
             F                G
I seem to be coming out of my skin
                    Am
Look what you’ve forgotten here
             F                  G
The bandages just don’t keep me in

                Am        
And when it was over 
           F     G
I woke up alone 
                Am        
And when it was over 
           F     G
I woke up alone 

Chorus:
          Am           G            F          C
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Am      G       F       C          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Am            G             F          C      
I called for my father but my father had died
      F                         G         C
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang


            Am
Look at the damage,
             F                   G
the fortunes came for the richer men.
                      Am
while we’re left with gallows,
               F                      G
waiting for us liars to come down and hang.

                Am        
And when it was over 
           F     G
I woke up alone 
                Am        
And when it was over 
           F     G
I woke up alone 


          Am           G            F          C
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Am      G       F       C          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Am            G             F          C      
I called for my father but my father had died
      F                         G         C
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang


 

                    Bm         A          G  
And here’s where we died that time last year,
                       Bm         A       G      
And here’s where the angels and devils meet.
            Bm               A            G    
And you can dance with the queen if you need,
               D                G            
And she will always keep your cards
   A            D      
Close to her heart oooh
            G       A                                         
So close to her heart 
                      D
before they tear you apart

C,F,G

          Am           G            F          C
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Am      G       F       C          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Am            G             F          C      
I called for my father but my father had died
      F                         G         C
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang


 
               F            G       C
You told me fortunes, in American Slang
