E		       B
By the second verse, dear friends
C#m			A
My head will burst, my life will end
B
So, I'd like to start this one off by saying
 E
"Live and love"
E		    B
I was young and at home in bed
       C#m			  A
And I was hanging on the words some poem said
      B
And thirty-one
       E
I was impressionable
      F#m
I was upsettable

	    C#m	              A		          B
I tried to make my breathing stop, my heart beat slow
 	    C#m		         A	       B
So, when my mom and John came in, I would be cold

(bridge)

   E		            B 	      C#m	A
        B		            E
Broke my bones and skull and it was memorable
	E			B
It was half a second and I was halfway down
       C#m 		       A	      B
Do you think I wanted to turn back around and teach a class
 	  E			   F#
Where you kiss the ass that I've exposed to you


     	   C#m          A 	B
And at the funeral, the University
	     C#m	A		         B
Cried at three poems they'd present in place of a broken me

(bridge)

      E	            B
I was breaking in a case of suds
 C#m		    A			       B		      E
At the brass rail, a fall-down drunk with his tongue torn out and his balls removed
	E		B  		      C#m         A
And I knew that my last lines were gone while stupidly I lingered on,
      B
other wise men
               E
know when it's time to go
	F#m
And so I should, too

	C#m	      A		       B
And so I fly into the brightest winter sun
	C#m		 A		       B
Of this frozen town, I'm stripped down to move on
	        F#m		A	B
My friends, I'm gone

      E
Well, I hear my father fall
    E
And I hear my mother call
    E					 B
And I hear the others all whisper, "Come home"

             E
I'm sorry to go
	       A
I loved you all so
    E			  B                A
But this is the worst trip I've ever been on

   E
So, hoist up the John B. sail
(Hoist up the John B. sail)
  E
See how the main sail sets
(See how the main sail sets)
 E					       B
I've folded my heart in my head and I wanna go home
 		   E
With a book in my hand
  		  A
In the way I had planned
      E		             B		    E
Well, this is the worst trip I've ever been on
E
Hoist up the John B. sail
(Hoist up the John B. sail)
E
See how the main sail sets
(See how the main sail sets)
E					       B
I've folded my heart in my head and I wanna go home
		    E
With a book in each hand
(With a book in each hand)
	         A
In the way I had planned
(In the way I had planned)
  E                  B
I feel so broke up
           E
I wanna go home
