Intro: 
A  E x3
A  B
                                
                                  A           E
Some nights it just takes like a smile and a shake.
                               A  E
And I've been with the bodies,
                              A  E                
and I've been with the blood,
                                                      A  B
and I went with Halleluiah and she didn't say a thing,
                                                A  E
she just wiped at her nose and then she winked.

                             A  E
And I've been with the cops,
                                    A  E
and I've been with all the squares,
                                                      A  B
and I went with St. Deborah of defeat and depression,
                                                                        A  E
she put her hand up on my shoulder and then she just kinda stood there.

       E/F#                        A
And she said, "Call me (212) margarita.
            C#m                                    B                   A
'Cause I'm green, and I'm misleading, and I've had too much tequila."

A  E

                                 A  E
And I've been with short tempers,
                                   A  E
I've been behind the sharp knives,
                                                           A  B
I believe the shots in the distance to be cold hard facts,
                                                       A  E 
Ringing out against the radios and the speaker stacks.

                                 A  E
And I've been with the hoodrats,
                                    A  E
I've been with all the hangers on,
                                                       A  B
I stayed out 'til dawn at some raunchy magazine launch,
                                                     A  E
and I hit the open bar and got myself all turned on.

               E/F#                   A
And she said "Call me (612) bloody mary.
             C#m                     B                                   A  
'Cause I'm nice, and I'm spicy, and I'm your only sure shot at recovery."

A  E

            E/F#                   A
She said, "Call me (212) margarita.
     C#m                                    B                   A
I'm green, and I'm misleading, and I've had too much tequila."

 F#m                     A
Leave a message at the Motel 6,
   E        E/F#                 A
and let me know if you still so sick.
  F#m                              A
We'll be in town on a three night stick,
   E                                   E/F#                     E/G#
and maybe if you're feeling better then we could get some soup together,
                     A           
we've been sick together before."

(Solo)
A E x8
A B
A E

                             A  E
And I believe in the bodies,
                             A  E
and I believe in the blood,
                                                     A 
and I believe in salt along the rims of the glasses,
                    B
'cause that makes us thirsty,
                               A      E
and when we drink then we all fall in love.
                          A  E
I believe in the bodies,
                             A  E
and I believe in the blood,
                                                     A
and I believe in salt along the rims of the glasses,
                    B
'cause that makes us thirsty,
                               A       E(End)
and when we drink then we all fall in love.
