### Listen to the song for the picking pattern - repeat over these lines:

i guess I met her at the party pit
she said those kids she's with were selling it
so we sailed off on some separate trips
she got pinned down at the party pit

I went away to school that fall

sped through the scene until the engine stalled at
some suburban shopping mall

[ VERSE 2 ] - Repeat second part of the riff of verse 1 over the lyrics:

I came back to start a band, of course.
I saw her walking thru the crystal court.
She made a scene by the revolving doors.
She's gonna walk around and drink some more.

So we walked across that grain belt bridge.
Into bright new minneapolis
She said i think that all those things I did.
Were just momentum from the party pit.

[ CHORUS ]

Em          Dmaj       Cmaj     Em7               EmII       DmajII EmII
   sailed away on such separate trips and she got pinned down...        and I'm pretty 
we kissed.
