[Verse 1]
B7 E AJim Morrison, Miami County Prison,
E B7lookin' out the window at the barbed wire fence
A E A ESinging "This ain't for me, this rock and roll scene.
A E B7I should be writing poetry on a farm out in France.
A E Fm E"Cause I can't see through the darkness. I can't feel no pain.
A E Fm ESeems you lose your spark when you achieve your fame.
A E Fm EI could start it all over, I could escape.
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight."

B7 E AJanis Joplin, one foot in the coffin.
A E B7Left that field a-rockin' and she walked on out the door.
A E A EShe put her head in her hands, she said "I've given all I can.
A E B7I drain myself for these fans. I ain't never been this dry before.
A E Fm E"But Imma move out of this Chelsea Hotel, stop drinking all the time.
A E Fm EStop blowin' Leonard Cohen and listening to him whine.
A E Fm ECause I know I am beautiful, I will prove it someday.
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight.
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight."

B7 E AAnd Kurt Cobain sat in his shed in the rain,
A E B7stomach full of pain, eyes growin' dark.
A E A EHe said "I'm losing control. Ought to move down to San Francisco,
A E B7light candles at all of my shows and switch to acoustic guitars.
A E Fm E"Cause this world don't need no more tension and hate.
A E Fm ENeeds a reason for these kids to stand up and create.
A E Fm EAnd I could pull this trigger, or I could just walk away,
A E B7 Eif I could only make it to twenty eight.
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight.
A E B7 EIf I could only make it
A E B7 EIf I could only make it."
[Opt. Verse]
B7 E AJames M Hendrix, now he’s fallin’ sick
A E B7A dying flame on a wick, watching his fire die
A E A EHe said “I want to see my Angel; she’d catch me if I fell.
A E B7I’m living some kinda hell; this world can pass me by”
A E Fm E“Or I could make a difference, put an end to this war
A E Fm EAnd offer out the peace and love that we all worked for
A E Fm EI know I’m inventive, and I’ll turn myself straight
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight
A E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight.”
