Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


40 Years  Counting Crows

[F#m]        I was born in the [E]jungle
With the [Bm]sickening smell of [F#m]cinnamon in the air
[F#m]       Born in a [E]white hole
and I [Bm]can't be[A]lieve the [D]colors [E]here to[F#m]day
Stuck on a [E]circle
I've [Bm]never been blessed with [F#m]elephant's memory
[F#m]       Riding a [E]red line no[Bm]where

If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years for the [Bm]gun to be [A]paid for
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years, put the [Bm]money a[A]way
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years to get the [Bm]things that I [A]need sir
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years I want the [Bm]thunder and the [A]rain    [D]    [E]

[F#m]        I was born in a [E]good home
Where the [Bm]rising cost of [F#m]raising children
[F#m]       Was not a [E]factor
And I [Bm]can't be[A]lieve the [D]things it [A]does to [F#m]me
I'm filled with the [E]white noise
Well I [Bm]never did much of [F#m]anything anyway
[F#m]      Jump on a [E]big train no[Bm]where
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years for the[Bm] gun to be [A]paid for
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years, put the [Bm]money a[A]way
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years to get the [Bm]things that I [A]need sir
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years I want the [Bm]thunder and the [A]rain
[F]   I'm gonna buy me a [C]good heart, and a [G]conscience, maybe [D]raise some children
[F]    Ge[C]t me a good wife, and a [G]God and God and God and God and
[F]    Start me a [C]new life with a [G]six foot color [D]television
[F]    Start me a [C]new life some[G]where  [A]    [E]
[F#m]        I was born on a [E]warm night
On the [Bm]right coast, south[F#m]eastern America
[F#m]       Dead on ar[E]rival
But you [Bm]can't be[A]lieve the [D]things you [E]hear to[F#m]day
I'll fly me a [E]white plane over [Bm]water
Over [F#m]blue and green and
[F#m]        Land in the [E]ocean some[Bm]where
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years for the [Bm]guns to be [A]paid for
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years, put the [Bm]money a[A]way
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years to get the [Bm]things that I [A]need sir
If [D]it takes [A]40 [G]years well I want that [Bm]thunder
[A]Yeah and I want that [G]rain  [Bm]     [A]
Oh  well I want that [G]rain
[Bm]     Come on now, now [A]gimme the thunder, gimme the thunder
Gimme the [G]rain  [Bm]      [A]
I want that [G]rain, I want the [Bm]thunder and the [A]rain
