Intro: Am |C |F |G | (x1)
Verse: Am |C |F |G | (x2)
Am |C
The cigarettes And carrot juice. Get yourself a

I'm sitting on the Cafe Xeno steps, with a book I haven't started yet,
F |G
watching all the girls walk by.
Chorus: G |F |Dm |C | (x2)
G |F
Could I take you out? I'd be yours without a
Dm |C
doubt.. on that Big Dipper.
G |F
If the sound of this, it frightens you, we could play it real
Dm |C
cool. And act some-what in - different.
[Am] And hey June, why‚??d you have to[C] come, why'd ya hafta come a-round so
[F]soon? I wasn't ready for all this [G]nature.
[Am] The terrible green, green grass, [C]and violent blooms of flowered dresses,
[F] and afternoons that make me sleepy[G].
[G] But we could wait a-[F]while, before we push that dull
turn[Dm]stile.. into the [C]passage.
[G] Thousands they have [F]tread. And, others sometimes
[Dm]fled, before their [C]turn came.
[G] We could wait our [F]lives, before a chance
ar[Dm]rives. Before the [C]passage.
[G] From the top you can see Monte[F]rey. Or think about San
Jo[Dm]se. Though I know it's not that [C]pleasant.
[Am] And hey Jim! ah, Kerouac. [C] Brother of the Famous Jack.
[F] Or so he likes to say. Lucky [G]bastard!
[Am] He's sitting on the Cafe Xeno step[C]s, with a girl I'm not over yet.
[F] Watching all the world go by.[G]
[G] Boy you're looking [F]bad. Did I make you feel that
[Dm]sad? I'm honestly [C]flattered.
[G] But if she asked me [F]out, I'd be hers without a
[Dm]doubt, on that Big [C]Dipper.
Outro Verse:
[Am] Cigarettes.. [C] And carrot juice. Get yourself a
[F]new tattoo. For those sleeveless [G]days of June.
[Am] I'm sitting on the Cafe Xeno steps[C]. I haven't got the
[F]courage yet.. I haven‚??t got th[G]e courage yet.. I haven't got the
Am (1 strum)
courage yet.

Verse Tab (slow):
The most noticeable section of the song is the baseline walking in the verse‚??s Am and F
The ‚??2 & 3‚?? counts are very distinct.
If strumming, make them prominent, or pick something like:
Am |C |F |G

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
The choruses are kind of hard to hear at first. They run G, F, Dm, C (one measure each ‚??
count of 1 through 4) and then go
straight into either another chorus with G or a verse with Am. First pass is nearly
The second pass picks up chords. (keep
tapping or you‚??ll get lost)
Chorus pass 1 (patience, almost painfully):
[G] Dm [(G]Dm C[G])* [F] C C C[F] [F]
* = faint or nothing
. 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
