B         B2  B            B2  B    B2      D

Verse 2: use verse 1 chords
I hear a breeze that wheezes through the tips of the pines
Ahere there's laughter and screaming to the rafters in the

were piled in the river with the rock and roll skinned, times ten

Verse 3: use verse 1 chords
Like the water loves lapping at the skin of the shore, hear
our friend come tapping at the latches on the door. Like a
foot slips, slapping on the ladder's last rung, we were
thrashing in the clatter of the rock and roll hung, thats one

Verse 4: use verse 1 chords
It's just a loud crowd crush. It's just a thrush, seen flying
through the late autumn dusk for the very last time. It's
just a busted-up body in the dust of the last road out of the
city, when the city explodes. Light grows, and the light
grows bright, and red-tinged. We were fallen on the
border with the rock and roll singed. Times ten. Times
ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times
ten. Times ten. Times ten. Times ten.
