and she[/B] lo[Cmaj7]cked the car and[/B] sl[C]ipped past

riff C
i fell onto my knees
the sound of the [Am]car [Asus4]driving [Am]off [Bm] [F#] made me f[Am]eel [/B]dis[C]eased
[E]a sick [G]shouting like you h[Am]ear at the fairground
[E]now i'm picking [G]up to put a[Am]way anything of your's that's still around
[E]i don't kn[G]ow what to do with your cl[Am]othes or your letters
it'll m[E]ake a w[D]hisper out of y[C]ou [/B] [/C] [/G] [/F#] [/F]

she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
the f[/B]air[Cmaj7]ground's lit

and it'll m[E]ake a w[D]hisper out of y[C]ou[/B] [/C] [/G] [/F#] [/F]
E F#* G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
[/B] c[Cmaj7]ops were runnin[/B]g a[C]round the scene
