The Riot Before - Really Good Reason To Swear chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
G
I was wise, went downwind
AM
I hid all the evidence
C
but then I saw you walking slowly down the stairs with your friends
EM                                      D
soon the dogs caught the smell and the detective found prints
G
so I kicked, and I fought
AM
did all I could just to resist
C
my dirty face on the ground a heavy knee in my back
EM                                              D      C
and I'm heading downtown with handcuffs tight around my wrists


EM
I was home free, and headed south
C
I'd buy an island and relax
AM
now I'm, locked up, and staring out
C
through metal bars at what I had
EM
it was airplanes and dirty vans
C
and a confession to fog the air

AM
now your, hooked up with an old friend
C                               EM
all I have this paper a pen and all these
D                       C
really good reasons to swear



G
I'd erase, start again
AM
I see it clearly inside my head
        C
It would have worked under a different set of circumstances
EM                      D
but my life's not a movie, I can never again
G
live a day, in the past
AM
When we walked nowhere are 4 am
C
I let my hand hang beside me hoping you'd get the hint
EM                                              D
But you didn't that night and now you're so happy with him




AM
I'm holding onto this spoon
C
And I'm scratching at the cement
EM
When the guard's not paying attention
D                                               C
I will tunnel through dirt and rock and under barbed wire fence
EM      D      C
And I will find my freedom
EM              D      C      G
in the sunlight, my freedom
