Em7  A7  C            G             Em7 A7        C      G
It   was one hundred degrees, as we sat beneath a willow tree, 
      Em7          A7              C           G        Em7        A7       C    G
Who's tears didn't care, they just hung in the air, and refused to fall, to fall. 

(base comes in , same chord sequence)
Em7      A7            C        G
   And I knew I'd made horrible call, 
   Em7          A7                   C      G
And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall, 
          Em7    A7                C          G
And there was no doubt about which side I was on. Hmmm.....
[ Tab from: ]
[Em] [Em7Maj] [G6/E] [Em7Maj] [Em] [Em7Maj] [G6/E] [A7]
           Cause I built you a home in my heart,          With rotten wood,
 ...It decayed from the start

C         G                   D         -|
Cause you can't find nothing at all,     |
If there was nothing there all along.    |-- CHORUS
No you can't find nothing at all,        |
If there was nothing there all along.   -|

Bass fill.....

Em7      A7       C          G
       I braved treacherous streets, 
And kids strung out on homemade speed. 
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep, 
At all, woo, hoo, woo, hooOoOo. 

Em7      A7        C        G
Cause at night the sun in retreat, 
Made the skyline look like crooked teeth, 
In the mouth of a man who was devouring, us both. 

(same as other Pre-chorus, but 2-2 instead of 3-4 on second part)
You're so cute when you're slurring your speech, 
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave. 


A7            B7
I'm a war, of head versus heart, 
          Em7        A7
And it's always this way. 
   A7               B7
My head is weak, my heart always speaks, 
Em7                       C     G    D
Before I know what it will say.
