Tuned half a step down

G                 Em              G              Em
My mom'd give me twenty and say "Stay out till dawn"
       C                   Am         C           G
When her boyfriend was over and they wanted me gone
G                        Em          G            Em
I would walk through the woods to the old graveyard
   C                 Am          C              G         Em
And roll my own tops and think two kinda thoughts

       C               Em
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           G          Em
I don't know

G              Em        G               Em
That was the summer Dave's girlfriend OD'ed
       C                 Am      C               G
She died in the bathroom at a party down the street
G                       Em           G              Em
I went to see him the next night, he had a new tattoo
       C                       Am                C                     G
He was watching home movies of her, his face was wet, he looked so confused
G                      Em              G                        Em
They had a funeral for her, the preacher said she was with the Lord
          C                       Am          C          G        Em
There were lots of pictures of her taped to a poster board

       C                Em
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           G            Em
I don't know
         C              Em
Are we high enough to clear this place?
          D
I don't know

C                                                      G
Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light
C                                           G
High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right
       C                           D
But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand
        C                                   D
When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down
G                Em      G        Em
I wound up that fall in a hospital
     C             Am                     C              G         Em
On the suicide wing with a lot of people thinkin' one thing
G                       Em            G                   Em
They had a sign on the wall that said "No touching at all"
          C                   Am           C               G          Em
There were screams in the dark, nurses running down the hall

G                   Em               G                           Em
On the night that I got there, they showered me and searched me hard
          C                        Am            C          G         Em
Then they took me to my little room overlooking a graveyard
G                   Em        G               Em
When I opened my eyes I was strapped to the bed
          C                 Am   C             G       Em
There was a needle in my arm, part of me was gone
G                    Em            G             Em
Then they took us outside in our slippers and gowns
       C                      Am                    C                 G           Em
To play basketball on the blacktop, the ball just bounced till it stopped

       C                Em
Are we high enough to clear these trees?
           G            Em
I don't know
         C              Em
Are we high enough to clear this place?
          D
I don't know

C                                                      G
Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kinda light
C                                           G
High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right
       C                           D
But my heart would swing free like a lasso from my hand
        C                                   D
When I'd hear that sound and put the pedal down

G                  Em      G              Em
When the leaves were wet behind the old duplex
         C            Am   C              G          Em
We used to run at night naked through the trees
G                             Em               G                Em
And you would lean back against me and I would try to stay soft
       C              Am         C            G      Em
We'd listen to the engines as the planes took off
