The Handsome Family
[Intro]

E


[Verse]

E
I didn't wrap my head in roses, I didn't run screaming down the street
           Am
I didn't drive off jagged cliffs
    C               E
or dive in roaring seas

E
I broke no cage door open, I set no horses free
             Am
The day the girl at the drive-thru window
C                 E
Softly smiled at me


[Pre-Chorus]

B
Actually I did nothing
        A                      E
as she handed me a large iced tea
    B
an extra packet of ketchup
         A            E
a small bag of onion rings


[Chorus]

         C#m             F#
I didn't even smile back at her
        A                 E
I just pulled into the street
C#m                     F#
Searching my rear view mirror
    A                 E
To catch her eyes on me
                   B            
'Cause there were cars behind me 
       A                  E
and I had somewhere else to be


[Solo]

E Am C E


[Verse]

E
Down the street I saw an old man eating as he drove
 Am
running over empty cans
 C            E
lying in the road

E
But the billboards near the highway were full of singing birds
              Am
and all the trees were blooming green
          C                 E
in their little squares of dirt


[Chorus]

      C#m                   F#
Every dog chained in every yard
     A            E
was howling with me
             C#m             F#
But I didn't even smile back at her
        A                 E
I just pulled into the street
                   B            
'Cause there were cars behind me 
       A                     E
and I had somewhere else to be


[Outro]

E
