More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

E  A2                        E
    shakedown Nineteen seven Nine
   A2                          E
    cool kids Never have the Time, on a
   A2                          F#m7,4          B4
    live wire Right up off the Street, you and I should Meet

june bug Skipping like a Stone, with the
headlights Pointed at the Dawn
We were sure we'd Never see an End, to it All

    E            A                          E
and I don't Even Care to Shake these zipper Blues
             A
and We don't Know just Where our bones will
E               A                      F#m             B
Rest, to Dust I Guess, forGotten and abSorbed into the Earth, beLow

double-cross the Vacant and the Bored
they're not sure just What we have in Store
                       F#7,4         A
morphine City slippin' Dues, down to See that

We don't Even Care, as Restless as we Are
we Feel the Pull in the Land of a thousand
                                         B4
Guilts and Poured ceMent, laMented and asSured to the Lights

    C#m7    A2
and Towns beLow
B4              C#m7     A2
Faster Than the Speed of Sound
B4             C#m7         A2
Faster Than we Thought we'd Go
  F#m7,4    B4       E
beNeath the Sound of Hope

justine Never knew the Rules
hung down With the freaks and Ghouls
no a-pologies Ever need be Made, i know you Better than you Fake it, to See

and We don't Even Care to Shake these zipper Blues
and We don't Know just Where our bones will
Rest, to Dust I Guess, forGotten and abSorbed into the Earth, beLow

the street heats the Urgency of Now
as you see there's No one aRound
