Intro: E-Asus2-Bsus4

Well, I'm lost
I'm afraid
Rope tying down a leaky boat
       E                  Asus2                     Bsus4
To the roof of a car on a road in the dark and it's snowing
       E            Asus2     Bsus4
If I'm more then it means less

Last call for happiness
         E                           Asus2                      Bsus4
I'm your dress near the back of your knees and your slip is showing
      E          Asus2        Bsus4
I'm a float in a summer parade
                         E        Asus2        Bsus4
Up the street in the town that you were born in
       E           Asus2       Bsus4
With a girl at the top wearing tulle
                     E     Asus2           Bsus4
And a Miss Somewhere sash, waving like the queen

C#m                               Asus2
   Well beauty's just another word
I'm never certain how to spell
                              Asus2  Bsus4
Go tell the nurse to turn the T.V .  back on
C#m                   Asus2
  Throw away my misery
It never meant that much to me
It never sent a get-well card.

        E             Asus2 Bsus4
And I'm broke, like a bad   joke

Somebody's uncle told 
     E                    Asus2            Bsus4
At a wedding reception in nineteen seventy-two
        E                  Asus2                  Bsus4
Where a little boy under a table with cake in his hair
E                      Asus2                   Bsus4
Stared at the grown-up feet as they danced and swayed

(Let all chords ring until chorus)

        E                  Asus2                   Bsus4
And his father laughed and talked on the long ride home
        E                  Asus2                   Bsus4
And his mother laughed and talked on the long ride home
        E                Asus2             Bsus4
And he thought about how everyone dies someday
    E             Asus2                           Bsus4
And when tomorrow gets here, where will yesterday be
    E                  Asus2            Bsus4
And fell asleep in his brand new winter coat

C#m                     Asus2                          F#m
  Buy me a shiny new machine that runs on lies and gasoline
Asus2                             Bsus4
  And all those batteries we stole from smoke alarms
C#m                          Asus2
  And disassembles my despair
It never took me anywhere
It never once bought me a drink
