The Menzingers – Burn After Reading tab

Tuning: Half-Step Down

This is already here, but the chords are in the wrong key or something, so here is the 
album version, with tabs at the bottom.


INTRO: (w/ lead): E


VERSE: (w/ lead)
E                                     C#m          B
Here's to you, the same chords that I stole from a song that I once heard
E                 C#m                   B
The Same melody I borrowed from the void. I'd rather observe
E                     C#m       B
than structure a narrative, the characters are thin
E                   C#m      B
the plot does not develop it ends where it begins

E      C#m   B    x2

E                                     C#m           B
It's on the screen, in paperbacks, in section 8 and cul-de-sacs
E                                    C#m        B      A
Electro haikus and drunk sonnets are moving me along. Along


INTERLUDE: (w/ lead):   E      A      x2


CHORUS:
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?


VERSE: (w/ lead)
E                                          C#m     B
What I'd give to force your sigh, what I'd give to see you cry
         E                                C#m               B
What I'd give for your caress to see your blue cotton dress balled up on the floor
E                        C#m             B
Certain memories are the problem certain drunken lines are the shame
E             C#m                          B                A
Seven hundred miles and four years I can't fight the flame; it burns


CHORUS:
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?


OUTRO: (w/ lead)
E
Was I wishing on satellites?
Tell me how you've been doing that trick
I'm just wishing the flame away
Now I'm wishing the flame away
