INTRO: A(add11) – G(add9)D5 (2x)

A(add11) G(add9) D5I don't want to talk about it to you
A(add11) G(add9) D5I'm not an open book that you can rifle through
A(add11) B-7 G(add9) E7sus4The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
D5 A(add11) G(add9)I'm just basket case without you
A(add11) G(add9) D5He's not a magic man or a perfect fit
A(add11) G(add9) D5He had a steady hand, and I got used to it
A(add11) B-7 G(add9) E7sus4And a glass cage heart, and invited me in
D5 A(add11) G(add9)And now I'm just a basket case without him
D5 G(add9) You're begging for the truth
G-(add9) D5 So I'm saying it to you
G(add9) I've been saving your place
G-(add9) (hold) What good does it do?
D5 A(add11) G(add9) Now I'm just a basket case
D5 A(add11) G(add9) Now I'm just a basket case
A(add11) G(add9) D5I don't say much, and it'll stay that way
A(add11) G(add9) D5You got a steel train touch, and I'm just a track you lay
A(add11) B-7 G(add9) E7sus4So I'll stay right here underneath you
D5 A(add11) G(add9)I'm just a basket case; it’s what we do
D5Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams?
A(add11)Oh, send your armies in of robbers and thieves
B-7 G(add9) D5 A(add11)To steal the state I'm in, I don't want it anymore
D5 A(add11) G(add9)Now I’m just a basket case
D5 A(add11) G(add9)Now I’m just a basket case
