[Verse 1]B7 E AJim Morrison, Miami County Prison,E B7lookin' out the window at the barbed wire fenceA 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 eightA E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight."[Verse 2]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."[Verse 3]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 itA E B7 EIf I could only make it."[Opt. Verse]B7 E AJames M Hendrix, now he’s fallin’ sickA E B7A dying flame on a wick, watching his fire dieA 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 warA E Fm EAnd offer out the peace and love that we all worked forA E Fm EI know I’m inventive, and I’ll turn myself straightA E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eightA E B7 EIf I could only make it to twenty eight.”
