 G
 Blame it on the Tetons.
 DC
Yeah, I need a scapegoat now.
 G
 No my dog won't bite you,
 D
Though it had the right to.
 C
 You oughta give her credit
 G
Cuz she knows I would've let it happen.

 D-C
 G
 Blame it on the weekends.
 DC
 God I need a cola now.
 G
 Oh we mumble loudly,
 D
 Wear our blame so proudly.
 C
 Wear our blank expressions,
Trying to look interesting.
 G
 Blame it all on me cuz
 DC
 God I need a cold one now.

 G
 All them eager actors
 D
 Gladly taking credit
 C
 for the lines created
...C...
By the people tucked away from

 G
 sight / Is it a window
 D
 from the room we're bound to.
 C
 If you need a way out,
Would you please just let me know how?
 G
 Blame it on the web but
 DC
 the spider is your problem now.
 G
 Language is the liquid
 D
 That we're all dissolved in.
 C
 Great for solving problems
...C...
After it creates a problem.
 G
 Blame it on the Tetons,
 DC
 God I need a scapegoat now.
humming over 2 verses of G - D - C

 GC
 Everyone's a building burning
 AmC
With no one to put the fire out.
 GC
 Standing at the window looking out,
 AmC
Waiting for time to burn us down.
 GC
 Everyone's an ocean drowning
 AmC
With no one really to show how.
 GC
 They might get a little better air
 AmC
If they turned themselves into a cloud.
G - D - C x3
