Guitar 1 and 2 basically play the same thing throughout the verse... D E I see the shapes, G A I remember from maps. D E I see the shoreline. G A I see the whitecaps. D E G A A baseball diamond, nice weather down there. D E G A I see the school and the houses where the kids are. D E G A Places to park by the fac’tries and buildings. D E G A Restaunts and bar for later in the evening. D E G A Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas. D E G A And I have learned how these things work together. D E G A I see the parkway that passes through them all. D E G A And I have learned how to look at these things and I say, Here's the pattern for the Chorus:

C G F I wouldn’t live there if you paid me. C G F I couldn’t live like that, no siree! C G F I couldn’t do the things the way those people do. C G F I couldn’t live there if you paid me to. Outro: (While he goes Goo goo ga ga ga)

I tabbed this listening to the live version off of The Name of This Band is Talking so it might be a little bit different in some parts from the album version
