Verse:

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7              intro x 2
The first time that I met her I was throwing up in the ladies room stall

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7             Amin
She asked me if I needed anything; I said, "I think I spilled my drink"

                  Gadd9
And that's how it started (or so I'd like to believe)...


intro x 2


Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                   intro x 2
She took me to her mother's house outside of town where the stars hang down

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                  Amin
She said she'd never seen someone so lost, I said I'd never felt so found 

         Gadd9                          D
and then I kissed her on the cheek... and so she kissed me on the mouth


intro x 2


Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                   intro x 2
The spring was poppin' daises up 'round rusted trunks and busted lawn chairs

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7               Amin
We moved into a studio in Council Bluffs to save a couple bucks

           Gadd9
Where the mice came out at night, neighbors were screaming all the time


intro x 2


Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                intro x 2
We'd make love in the afternoons to Chelsea Girls and Bachelor No. 2

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                            Amin
I'd play for her some songs I wrote, she'd joke and say I'm shooting through the roof
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_good_life/album_of_the_year_crd.html ]
         Gadd9
I'd say, "They're all for you, dear, I'll write the album of the year."


intro x 2

Chorus:

Dmin                         Gadd9
And I know she loved me then, I swear to God she did


c                   B                       Amin                 Gadd9
It was the way she'd bite my lower lip and push her hips against my hips 


F                   Gadd9
and dig her nails so deep into my skin. 


intro x 4


Breakdown:
 
									 Intro x 2
The first time that I met her I was convinced I had finally found the one

									  A min
She was convinced I was under the influence of all those drunken romantics

              Gadd9
I was reading Fante at the the time - I had bukowski on the mind


Intro x 2


Verse:

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                   intro x 2
She got a job at Jacob's serving cocktails to the local drunks

Dmin              Gadd9              c                  G7                     Amin
Against her will. I fit the the bill: I perched down at the end of the bar

        Gadd9                                  intro x 2
She Said, "Space is not just a place for stars- I gave you an inch, you want a house with a yard


Chorus:

Dmin			    Gadd9
And I know she loved me once, but those days are done


c                    B               Amin           Gadd9
She used to call me everyday from a pay phone on her break for lunch

F             Gadd9
just to say she can't wait to come home


Bridge:

c    G7    Amin   F

C    G7    intro x 4


Verse:

Dmin              Gadd9            c                  G7                   intro x 2
The last time that I saw her she was picking through which records were hers

Dmin              Gadd9              c                  G7                     Amin
Her clothes were packed in boxes, with some pots and pans and books and a toaster

Gadd9
Just then a mouse scurried across the floor

we just started laughing 'til it didn't hurt
