Gm First time It's not the first time Last time No, I know I seen your place before Maybe in a past life Or maybe it was just last night I don't know Verse 2: Birtha never sang too well But her stereo shook glass Leather gripped our bodies As her toes curled around the gas Shaking loose out of Kansas First twenty minutes in black-and-white Birtha, Rebirtha, talk to me, take to me Ease these troubled times Verse 3: Won't ever talk too much She had those television eyes My gaze never strayed too much Too much past those eyes She said, "I know a town where real life's a game Baseball's all that's real At night all the faces light up As the players take the field" (Chorus) (Jam over the verse chords for 12 measures) Bridge: The rhythm hear can be really difficult to handle unless you pay very close attention. I've written out the tab below in 15/8 time, but it's probably more like alternating measures of 4/4 and 7/8 for each measure tabbed out below. Either way is basically the same thing. Notice there's 8 beats for the G and Dm chords, and only 7 beats for each Bb chord. The chords should be correct, but they may not be in the right position.

(Jam over the chorus for 12 measures and play the chorus melody line for the last 8). (Verse 1) (Verse 3) (Chorus)
The final jam begins with alternating measures of G and Bb.Eventually, the jam drops into the same chords as the bridgesection above, but in 4/4 this time. / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / /|--7---------------6---------------||--8---------------6---------------||.-7---------------7---------------||.-9---------------8---------------||--10--------------8---------------||------------------6---------------| G Bb
