    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

    Whose tears didn't care, they just hung in the air, and refused to fall, to fall.

                Em7      A7    C           G         Em7               A7                    C           G

    And I knew I'd made horrible call. And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall,

                    Em7      A7                       C            G         Em7    A7      C        G

    And there was no doubt about which side I was on. Hmmm.....

     

    Em            Em(maj7)    Em7                 B7

        'Cause I built you a    home in my heart

            Em      Em(maj7)     Em7                 A7

    with rotten wood--it      decayed from the start

     

    Chorus:

                       C            G            D        

    'Cause you can't find nothing at all,

                 C                  G           D        

    If there was nothing there all along.

                C             G            D        

    No you can't find nothing at all,

                  C                 G            D              

    If there was nothing there all along.  

     

    Main Riff

     

    Em7          A7  C                      G        Em7             A7    C                       G

           I braved treacherous streets, and kids strung out on homemade speed

                  Em7      A7                 C                G      Em7      A7           C    G

    And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep at all, woo-hoo, woo-hoo

    Em7            A7           C           G                     Em7  A7           C            G

       'Cause at night the sun in retreat made the skyline look like crooked teeth,

                Em7          A7                   C   G          Em7   A7    C     G

    In the mouth of a man who was devouring us both

     

    Em          Em(maj7)           Em7               B7

    You're so cute when you're slurring your speech,

                       Em           Em(maj7)    A7 (2)

    But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave.

     

    Chorus, play last D 2 measures

     

    A7 (hold 2)         B7 (hold 2)

    I'm a war, of head versus heart,

          Em7 (hold 2)        A7 (hold 2)

    It's always this way.

           A7 (hold 2)              B7 (hold 2)

    My head is weak, my heart always speaks,

         Em7 (hold 2)          A7 (2)

    Before I know what it will say.

    Chorus:

                   C            G            D        

    And you can't find nothing at all,

                 C                  G           D        

    If there was nothing there all along.

                C             G            D        

    No you can't find nothing at all,

                  C                 G            D (2)

    If there was nothing there all along.  

                  C            G            D        

    No, you can't find nothing at all,

                 C                  G           D        

    If there was nothing there all along.

                         C           G                               D        

    There were churches, theme parks, and malls,

                      C           G            D (hold)   

    There was nothing there all along.
