    Intro:

    / G - - - / G - - C / G - - - / - - - - /

     

    Verse 1:

    G                               C                               Am                                    Bm (½)    C (½)      

       So at my show on Monday I was hoping someday,  you'd be on your way to   better                         

    G                                         C                                     Am                    Bm (½)    C (½)      

    things   It's not about your makeup or how you try to shape up to these tiresome paper

       G         C                 Am            Bm (½)    C (½)    

    dreams.        Paper dreams honey.

     

    Verse 2

    G                                 C                                    Am                                    Bm (½)    C (½)      

    So now you pour your heart out telling me you’re far out, you're not about to lie down for your

    G                               C                                         Am               Bm (½)          C (½)    

    cause,  but you don't pull my strings,  ‘cause I'm a better man, moving on to better things.

     

    Chorus

    G          D              Am                     C (½)      D (½)         Em

        But o-oh, I love her because she moves in her own way

             C                  Am                          C (½)    D (½)       G (2)

    But o-oh, she came to my show just to hear about my day.

     

    G                               C                               Am                                    Bm (½)    C (½)     

    And at the show on Tuesday, she was in her mindset, tempered furs and spangled boots
    G                  C                               Am                        Bm (½)    C (½)     

        Looks are deceiving, make me believe it, and these tiresome paper

       G         C                 Am            Bm (½)    C (½)    

    dreams.        Paper dreams honey.


    G                      C                                 Am                          Bm (½)    C (½)
        So won’t you go far, tell me you're a keeper, not about to lie down for your

    G                               C                                         Am               Bm (½)          C (½)    

    cause,  but you don't pull my strings,  ‘cause I'm a better man, moving on to better things.

     

    Chorus

    Em         D                            Bm (½)  (C) (½)    G

        Yes, I wish that we never made        it       through all the summers

    Em                      D                           Bm (½)  (C) (½)    G

        We kept them up instead of kicking us        back     down to the suburbs
