(verse)
B5                E5
He burnt down the house one night 
B5                       G#5  E5
He had a loaded six-pack gun 
B5                            E5
He said that Jesus Christ was just like a cop 
B5                                   D#5-C#5-B5-C#5*
You know, you never know when they'll come
(* = don't play the root of the chord)

(verse) 
She said every day above ground 
Was another dream come true 
He said I'd hang and swap clichés all night 
But I'm not in love with you

(bridge)
F#5             G#m
And I never got serious 
    B5               E5
'Til everything went black 
F#5           G#5
And I ain't so curious 
        B5          E5
That I'm ever going back

(chorus: Play Intro)
On the lie 
On the lie 
On the lie 
On the lie

(verse)
He said, man, you want to be Elvis 
I said I ain't dying face down 
He said you've got to die facing up in the world 
'Cause there's too many holes around 

(verse)
He asked what was wrong with me 
He said I looked like a Hollywood girl 
I said that Hollywood can fall into the ocean, man 
'Cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world

(bridge)
And I never got serious 
'Til everything went black 
And I ain't so curious 
That I'm ever going back

(chorus)
On the lie 
On the lie 
On the lie 
On the lie

(break)
(solo)
E5-G#5-F#5 (3x)
E5-G#5
F#5-G#5-E5

(chorus)
On the lie, he was 
On the lie 
On the lie, she was 
On the lie 
On the lie, he was 
On the lie 

G#5            F#5       E5
It's all been a stinkin' lie
