Intro: 
 G ( 2 bars)

G                     A/C#                       C            
I live on a chain and    you share the same last name, 
     G                                       A/C#
as a joke,I sent a bottle of whiskey, as you   choked, 
                         C
You said it made you feel dirty,

D                                       Am
And I was waiting over here for life to begin,
                         Em
I was looking for the new thing,
                C                   A/C#
And you were THE sunshine heading my front-line,
      C                                     G
I was alone, you were just around the corner from me.

G                       
Time alone is good, I spend my days in the city,
A/C#                                              C     
Dirty neighborhood, you know you'll never convince me,
G
So I sold the town away, I couldn't wait to forget you,
A/C#                                         C
I was killed in half a day, I hadn't time to regret you,

D                                       Am
And I was waiting over here for life to begin,
                         Em
I was looking for the new thing,
                C                   A/C#
And you were THE sunshine heading my front-line,
      C                                     G
I was alone, you were just around the corner from me.

G                                A/C#                C
I, I'm still on the chain, and you, had the same last name,
G                             
As a joke I sent a bottle of whiskey
      A/C#                               C
As you   choked you said it made you feel dirty...

D                             Am
Waiting over here, for life to begin,
                         Em
Still looking for the new thing,
                C                   A/C#
And you were the sunshine heading my front-line,
     G                                      G   
I was alone, you were just around the corner from me
(play 12-bar-G for two or three bars to fade)

Cheers.
