                "Chesterfield King"
written and performed by Jawbreaker
(C) and (P) 1992 Punk: The Other White Meat music (BMI)

* (p) = palm-muted
* I'm not the best at transcribing solos, so the solo may be inaccurate
* The F#/G chord is a G power chord with the root lowered a half-step:

["Chesterfield King"]


G                  E        B (p)       C (p)
  We stood in your room and laughed out loud
G            E              A                    C
Suddenly the laughter died, we were caught in an eye to eye
G               E             B (p)  C (p)
  We sat on the floor and did we sit close
G                  E                    
I could smell your thoughts and thought,
 A              C
"Do you want to touch a lot like me?"
G     C               G
  Too scared to say a thing

B (p)               C (p)
Left your house and kicked myself
E (p)              D (p)         C
Put those feelings on a shelf to die
B (p)             C (p)
Guess I'm not the gambling type
E (p)             D (p)         C
Think of what the two of us had lost   Had lost

I needed some time to think it out
7-Eleven parking lot, a toothless woman turned and stopped
Gave her a dime and a Chesterfield
She leaned down and kissed my cheek
I was scared but it felt sweet   Felt so sweet

She asked me if I had a name
Told her I was glued up on some chick
We sat and smoked against the wall
Drank a beer, felt the chill of fall   Of fall

G           F#/G             E        D            C
  I took my car and drove it down the hill by your house
  B        A
I drove so fast
G             F#/G             E         D         C
  The wind it couldn't cool me down so I turned it around
    B         A
And came back up
G          F#/G            E           D       
  You were waiting on your step, steam chilling off your
C          B             A
breath and water in your eyes
G                F#/G       E           D
  We pulled each other into one, parkas clinging on the
C         B            D
lawn, and kissed right there


[Solo over verse]

h = hammer-on
/ = slide up
\ = slide down



...and repeat

Said my chicks all smoke these things
Handed you a Chesterfield King
Held your hand and watched TV
Traced the little lines along your palm   Your palm

[Repeat chorus]

[Play chorus progression once, palm muting all chords]

[End on G]
