The Milk Carton Kids - Permanent chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Standard tuned a whole step down.

Joey plays an E7 (rather than G) in certain places. Change to the intro chords and I've 
added the interlude chords played under Kenneth's solo. Sounds better. Great song.

[ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]                          C
I think i'm going to work construction
             E7            Am
Just to make something of myself
G       [ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]                  C              G
I can't live off these childhood trophies on my shelf
  [ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]              C
I want to get my hands dirty

'cause you can open it and plug it in

G            [ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]                 C              G
No one could ever say that i've been trying way too hard
[ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]                C

Got dusty and old

It's been a long year but i'm not ready to give up

        [ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]          C
You get rid of what came before
       Am                G
And it feels like a long hot shower
                     [ch]Fmaj7/C[/ch]                 C
Like getting in your bed when the sheets are warm
