Intro: E G6 Em11/F# (open) E G6 Em11/F# (open) E
E G6 Em11/F# Eas we cruised across the Canadian border
G6 Em11/F# Eyou reached into your handbag, pulled out a micro-cassette recorder,
started quoting Tolstoy into the machine,
G6 Em11/F# Ei had no idea what you meant.
i guess i'm supposed to figure these things out,
G6 Em11/F# Eor maybe it's supposed to be self-evident.
C Cadd9/Bbut i've gone feral,
Cadd9/A G6 Em11/F#-E*and i don't speak the language anymore.
C Cadd9/B Cadd9/A G6 Em11/F# Ewe're headed deep into the forest,
i've got the pedal to the floor.
D E Dthe engine shudders, like a dying man, when you reach out to grab my hand,
A# Ayou can bring out all your weapons,
Eyou can't make me go to war.
E* E* G6 Em11/F# (open) E G6 Em11/F# (open) E
E G6 Em11/F# E*long winding Canadian highways, innumerable evergreens.
Eweather forecast on the AM radio
G6 Em11/F# Esays we'll be expecting highs in the low teens
G6when i mouth my silent curses at you,
Em11/F# Ei can see my breath.
G6i hope the stars don't even come out tonight.
Em11/F# Ei hope we both freeze to death.
C Cadd9/B Cadd9/A G6 Em11/F# E*look at the person i've turned into, tell me, how do you like him now?
C Cadd9/B Cadd9/A G6 Em11/F#-E*no standards of any kind to break, no creeds to disavow
E Di am right here where you want me
E Ddo what you brought me out here for.
A# Ayou can arm me to the teeth.
(muted strumming) E you can't make me go to war. E* E* G6 Em11/F# (open) E E* E* G6 Em11/F# (open) E E* E* G6 Em11/F# (open) E End with string breaking power! [[[pasted from]]] from the coroners gambit
