Intro bit

then it goes straight into it- listen to how he plays the C/G chord in the song (3rd fret on A string then 3rd fret on the E string)
C/G F C/G Fool's gold on Main St. from stop signs to dangling telephones
C/G F GChildren delivering newspapers, all the grotesque and the hum-drum
F C/G Em F I used not to worry but now it's all I do
F C/G Em F I used to be in a hurry but now I'm dragging both my boots
F G F*Wondering how to get from Main to Meadoooooooooooooow
*With that F chord it goes something like (it can be played in a couple variations different from this one):
F C/G F C/G(back to the verse)e|---------------------------------------|b|---0-0h1p0------------------0-0h1p0----|G|2--2-2-----0-------------2--2-2-----0--|D|3----------2----0--0h2p0-3----------2--|A|3------------------------3----------3--|E|---------------------------------------|Listen to the song to get this bit right
C/G F C/GFrom fisherman to fish to butcher, the struggle is never ending
C/G F G FYou can put your life down on paper but it's not the same as swimming
C/G Em FI dropped a hint and you were kind enough to retrieve it
F C/G Em F You asked me where the trouble was and you were sweet enough to believe it
G F*But it was such a sad lie I had to whisper
C/G F C/GWhat happened to Blake and Eric, Douglas, Phil and Amanda?
C/G F G FWhat happened to Jennifer the Great, who loved me before anyone?
C/G Em FThey're flying into the ground or walking high around my city
C/G Em FWhile my head is just some town you wouldn't want to visit
G F*It's crowded and the people all look ghostly
C/G F C/GFool's gold on Main St., shuffling through orphan trash
C/G F GThe birds search for the sun at their feet in every crumb of shattered glass
F C/G Em FI slipped on holy blinders as if I could turn my body in
C/G Em FIf I'm guilty when I despair, will hope make me innocent again
G F*Or will it only get me through this winter?
C/G F C/GThere are neon invitations where shameless billboards babble
F GYou belong to nothing at all now since your pockets have unraveled
F C/G Em FYour soul is just a drop of the dream we collected with pans in the stream
C/G Em FThe streets of heaven are lined with it and the streets of heaven are clean
G F*But everything you'll ever touch is dirty
Keep on playing the F to C/G chord progression and end on C/G
