Key:

[Verse]

G D
So long ago, I don’t remember when
F# Bm
That’s when they say I lost my only friend
G D
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
F# Bm
As I listened through the cemetery trees

G D F# Bm

G D
I seen the sun comin’ up at the funeral at dawn
F# Bm
The long broken arm of human law
G D
Now it always seemed such a waste She always had a pretty face
F# Bm
I wondered how she hung around this place

G G F#

[Chorus]

F#
Hey,
G
come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em A
got to be something better than
G
In the middle
D
me & Cinderella
Em
put it all together
A
We can drive it home
G
With one headlight

[Verse]

G
She said it’s cold
D
It feels like Independence Day
F# Bm
And I can’t break away from this parade
G
But there’s got to be an opening
D
Somewhere here in front of me
F# Bm
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
G
And I seen the sun up ahead
D
At the county line bridge
F# Bm
Sayin’ all there’s good and nothingness is dead
G
We’ll run until she’s out of breath
D
She ran until there’s nothin’ left
F# Bm
She hit the end-it’s just her window ledge

G G F#

[Chorus]

F#
Hey,
G
come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em A
got to be something better than
G
In the middle
D
me & Cinderella
Em
put it all together
A
We can drive it home
G
With one headlight

[Verse]

G
Well this place is old
D
It feels just like a beat up truck
F# Bm
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turn
G
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
D
This place is always such a mess
F# Bm
Sometimes I think I’d like to watch it burn
G D
I’m so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
F# Bm
Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same
G D
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin’ dreams
F# Bm
I think her death it must be killin’ me

G G F#m

[Chorus]

F#
Hey,
G
come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em A
got to be something better than
G
In the middle
D
me & Cinderella
Em
put it all together
A
We can drive it home
G
With one headlight
