                "G"        Dsus2          Em         A         G (for chorus)

||The picking pattern is too complex for me to write out, but is is
||important that you hammer on the third fret of first string and then off
||as you strike the bass G note
||the A before the chorus has a suspended lick in it
||listen for the 2nd string--it goes from fret 2 to 3 to 2 to 0
||(listen and you'll understand)


                G         Dsus2            G                DSUS2
        Jacob's a fine boy but his parents don't get along
        G           Dsus2
        They hardly talk, when they do
                       Em             A
        He thinks he's done something wrong
        G         Dsus2            G                DSUS2
        He heard all the screaming as he lay down to bed
        G           Dsus2                    Em             A
        He should have been sleeping but he listened instead

                               Em                A
(chorus)        They said he's fine, it's not his fault
                            D                     G
                Between the lines, he somehow got caught
                            Em                   A
                And in our game, it's more like war
                                       Em            A
                I just don't think I love you anymore

                G         Dsus2            G                DSUS2
        He picked up the phone, his tears touched the receiver
             G           Dsus2         Em     A
        His grandmother answered down in Tempe
        G         Dsus2            G                DSUS2
        He told her the story - that his daddy was leaving
        G           Dsus2                    Em       A
        She tried to convince him it was nothing he'd done

                                 Em                   A
(chorus)        She said you're fine, it's not your fault
                            D                     G
                Between the lines, you somehow got caught
                               Em                       A
                And in their game, it sounds more like war
                         Em             A
                I just don't think she loves him anymore

        Jacob's a father and his kids are in teens
        He's done what he could to make meager ends meet
        When it comes down to family, it's the primary goal
        To keep the thing working no matter the toll

        His sons heard them screaming about something he said
        He opened the door and invited them in

(chorus)        He said now sons, it's not your fault
                Between the lines you somehow got caught
                So when you're hurt, you lean on a crutch
                But I still love your mother very much

OUTRO: the same as chorus
