This Song is from Alkaline Trio’s Cd Good Mourning – it’s a damn good acoustic
song! This is the second time I tabbed something. There are more difficult ways to play this
but this version sounds also pretty good. Also there are no chords for this osng jsut
Just follow the chords exactly where they are above the Lyric lines. Have fun!


[Intro] 4x 

E-Esus


[Verse]

               E  Esus   C#m            A
It's about time that I came clean with you
               E Esus         C#m           A
I'm no longer fine, I'm no longer running smooth
               E Esus          C#m            A
I thought that I found myself under something new
                E Esus       C#m            B
Just one more line I repeat over and over again

                       A            E       B
'Till I'm blue in the face with a choking regret
                    A            E          B
Because I talk in circles 'round you on my bed
                A          E            B            G#  --- A
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
                B
When you left that night


[Instrumental] 2x 

Verse Chords


[Verse 2]

                E   Esus   C#m       A
It's about time that you got sick of me
                E Esus      C#m         A
No longer fun, and so far from interesting
                E Esus       C#m             A
I thought that I found me a cure for feeling old
                E Esus   C#m               B
Just one more line to keep me sleeping loudly and cold

      A              E         B
In disgraced with a shameful regret
      A            E                 B
As I talk in tongues to myself in my bed
           A              E            B              G# --- A
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
                B
When you left that night


[Intro] 2x


[Bridge]

E                      Ex           B            A
And all that followed fell like mercury to hell
E                      Ex           B            A
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time
E                      Ex           B            A
And all that followed fell like mercury to hell                             E
         A                B      (play B A little bit longer)
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time


[Outro]

      E              Esus  E      G#     A
And I don't dream since I quit sleeping
        E             Esus E     G#      A
And I haven't slept since I met you
        E    Esus   E                       G#      A
And you can't breathe without coughing at daytime
               B
And neither can I
              A -------- B(Stop)
So what do you say?
                 E (let ring)
Your coffin, or mine?
