Transpose
The 9th track off of the newest addition to The Gaslight Athem's back catalogue 
'American Slang.' If you don't have this album I highly reccommend it. One of my 
new all time faves!

Here goes...

Intro: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse)

Verse:

GThe cool is dead, baby go on to sleep
ERest your weary head and lover bury me
GAnd in the morning we'll start over again
E CThat's how they do it up on the screen
GSo me and my baby we would dance all night
EBut I don't know the steps in my baby's time
GTo do it like they do it for the girls uptown
E CI hear they light 'em up like the blues
Pre-Chorus:
E CSo I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
E CAnd she's waiting, and she's waiting
DFor us to remember...
Chorus:
E C G DWas I good to you, the wife of my youth
E C G DNot another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
E C G DSo I will wait on the edges in between
C DThese New York streets
GWhere you and I would meet
Post Chorus: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse) Verse 2:
GFor 29 years we loved that line
EAnd I would take it easy if I had your mind
GBut I'm a cannonball to a house on fire
E CAnd you're slow like Motown Soul
GSo what now lover with your long black hair?
EIf I cut you open baby I can repair
GAnd bandage your wounds with the salt on my tongue
E CAnd I'm the only one 'round here
Pre-Chorus 2:
E CSo I'm waiting, so I'm waiting
E CAnd she's waiting, and she's waiting
DFor us to recover...
Chorus 2:
E C G DSo was I good to you, the wife of my youth
E C G DNot another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
E C G DSo I will wait on the edges in between
C DThese New York streets
GWhere you and I would meet
Bridge:
E C G DAnd only I can heal your wounds
E C G DOnly I can heal your wounds
E CWhen you can't go on
G DWhen you can't go on
E CWhen you can't go on
D EWhen you can't go on, anymore...
Muted Pre-Chorus:
E C G DSo was I good to you, the wife of my youth
E C Not another soul could love you
G DLike my...
Chorus 3:
E C G DSo was I good to you, the wife of my youth
E C G DNot another soul could love you like my rotten bones do
E C G DSo I will wait on the edges in between
C DThese New York streets
C DOn all these New York streets
GWhere you and I would meet
