Intro: C D G C


C DThere's rumbling in the head again
G CInside the head there lived a brain
C DInside the brain there lived a dream
G CThat shot round like a laser beam
C DAlong nerve endings and synapses
G CPast the room for memory lapses
C DBought about by alcohol
G CThat causes all the cell collapses
C D G C
C DNow, that dream's not the only one
G CI had plenty more when I was young
C DBut I grew up in a big hurry
G CAnd then one day I start to worry that
D G CI'm gonna be a goner before I read all the books I wanna
C DIf I plant a tree now it'll be fully grown
G CLong after I'm just dust and bone and
C D C GNow I can't sleep, it's already 3 AM
C D G CAnd Im lying here dividing sheep by the square root of ten
C D G C
C DSo I gave away my clothes to charity
G CI turned off my TV for clarity
C DAnd somedays I still envy those
G CWalking around wearing my clothes
G D CSo I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
G D CPut a seed in the ground where no one'll know
G D CGonna make my plan when the morning breaks
G D CBut I just don't know how long it'll take
C D G C
C DI keep hearing voices and ringing phones
G CBut Im staring down a highway all alone
C DWith just the company of my stomach rumble
G CAnd I feel OK, it makes me humble
C DWithout a load that I must carry
G COr a bump in the road to make to tarry
C D G
CJust a pile of ashes from the miles I've burned and everything Ive learned
CWhat have I learned?
C DDon't walk in front of cars or behind horses
G CCats don't drink milk out of flying saucers
CGreen means go
DYellow: go faster
G CRed means stop or financial disaster
C D G CAnd don't ever underestimate the fitness of a determined Jehovahs witness
C D G CAnd don't ever ever take for granted what grew from every kiss you planted
C DIf a heart can break then a heart can feel
G CIt's to know that you're alive and real
C DLike the rattlin, bouncin little white ball
G CNot a number on a roulette wheel
C D C GAnd hair it turns grey and skin it turns to leather
C D G CBut the best thing about growing old is we all do it together
G D CSo I'll just plant a tree I'll never see grow
G D CPut a seed in the ground where no one'll know
G D CGonna make my plan when the morning breaks
G D CBut I just don't know how long it'll take
C D G C
C DThey say that a love that's shared is a love that's carried
G CAll the way to the church where you'll be married
C D G
CAnd it's a long old way down the aisle to alter and you don't have the time to falter
C DLove will always come and go I hope
G CBut sometimes love goes up in smoke
C DAnd you're left there with the greedy ghost
G CAnd just when you need them most
C DSome of your friends have disappeared
G CAnd others started acting weird
C DAnd you’re left on your bed with an awful feeling
G CTill you've learned by heart all the cracks in the ceiling
C D G
CAnd you think Oh god I just related to that awful love song I always hated
C D G CAnd the past it all becomes distorted like it was broke before you bought it
C DRemember, you're the one who paid
G CPulled the pin out of the hand grenade
C DIt's up to you to leave your room
G CBut don't forget to bring your spade
G D CSo you can plant a tree you'll never see grow
G D CPut a seed in the ground where no one'll know
G D CGonna make my plan forever to roam
G D CGonna feed my nan in the nursing home
G D CGonna make that plan when the morning breaks
G D CBut I just don't know how long It'll take
C D G C D C
