This is one of my all time favorite songs by the Jayhawks and is definitely
one of the better songs on "Sound of Lies".  My guitar teacher helped me
figure it out, so I can't take all the credit.

Intro (play twice):

e----9-----------9------------10--------------------------------------------
B----10----10---10-----10-----12------12----12s14---12--10-------------------
G----9-- 9-------9--9---------11--11------------------------11--------------

Verse:

A
Trouble
             C#
that's what we had
        D*
And everything that goes around
Dm*             (Dm lick)               A          Dm lick (while in Dm bar chord)
Comes around in a bittersweet lament
           C#m                          G          e--------5-7-8-7-5
Well my heart's already  broken down

E
Looking for a sweeter sound
E
Looking for a brighter day

       A                        C#
I'm face down on the pavement
D*                          Dm*         (Dm lick)              A
Step aside, see the light, close your eyes and let us live our lives
          C#m                           G
As they rally around the sinking ship
E
Looking for a better way
E                                       A    A/G#    F#m    A/E
It was just the blind leading the blind    oooooo   yeaaaaah

D            D/C#                 Bm    D/A
    I got my feet back on the ground


Chorus:

C#m                         Bm
It's better than being alone
C#m                         Bm          E
It's better than being alone

A
Funny
               C#
We tried it all
                        D*
Just standing on the brink
           Dm     (Dm lick)    A
Looking down, down, down

A           C#m                           G
There's a little bit of truth in every lie
E
You were so above us all
E                                         A     A/G#    F#m      A/E
It was just the blind leading the blind         oooo yaaaah
D          D/C#              Bm  D/A
I got my feet back on the ground

Chorus:

C#m                     Bm
It's better than being alone
C#m                     Bm
It's better than being   alone

Bridge:

Bm                           D
We were stranded on  the vine
                  A
Destitute and shaken
                F#m
Looking for a sign
Bm                 D
Left hung out to dry

                             A
Our backs against the wall
                      F#m         D       E
Stoned out of our, minds
