Rotting Strip / Crooked Fingers

G C G D Blurry eyes half bent and I can’t take you sober
G C G Tricking off the rotting strip that we’ve been
Dtrudging under
Em C G DWe ducked into a dim lit room out where the river bends
G C G And turned to walk the burning bridge that we would build
D CAnd crossed our hearts half hoping
G D CThat we could both quit smoking
G D CAnd kick the booze and blow
G D C DAnd one day go make something of ourselves
G C G D Glory came and went the night we both slipped under
G C G D ‘Neath the row of oil slicks and ancient ugly lovers
Em C G DSome they say the price you pay is far too much to spend
G C G But they don’t know the cost is fair if for a while
D CIt keeps your heart from crumbling
G CAnd we’d take what we want when we knew what we wanted
D GWhen we wished we had something to lose
C G C You were a fine young thing crammed in your tight red vinyl
Gjeans
C Em C DI was a third rate going nowhere burning for nothing to do
G C G D Boredom settled in and I can’t take you sober
G C G Strewn across the rotting strip that we’ve been building
Dover
Em C G D‘Til nothing made its wicked way slow creeping into view
G C G Where we could watch the burning bridge that we half built
D CAcross our hearts now broken
G D CAnd we could both quit smoking
G D CAnd kick the booze and blow
G D C DAnd one day go make something of ourselves
G CAnd we’d take what we want when we knew what we wanted
D GWhen we wished we had something to lose
C G C You were a fine young thing crammed in your tight red vinyl jeans
C Em C DI was a third rate going nowhere burning for nothing to do
G CSo we branded our hearts and we toasted the stars
D GGetting wasted by the light of the moon
C G C Gyou were a two bit tramp - I was a low life lying scum
C Em C DWe were a bad lay coming undone burning for someone to use
