This is 'Irrelevant', the 3rd track from Matthew Ryan's 1997 album "May Day".
Standard tuning with capo on the 1st fret.
Chord Key:
E - 022100
E/A - x02100
E/F# - 202100
Intro: E, E/A, E/F# (x2)
Verse 1:
Thereā??s on[E]ly one light on in the house
And thatā??s [E/A]the light up in the hall
And itā[E/F#]??s shining on the back of my head
And Iā?[E]?m concentrating hard on [E/A]the cigarette
To the ashtray from the[E/F#] ashtray back to my lips
So I[E] lean up from my easy chair
I[E/A] rub my three-day beard
[E/F#]And give that thousand yard stare
As I re[E]call all the time an[E/A]d money w[E/F#]e spent
Before I became irre[E]levant
Interlude: E/A, E/F#, E, E/A, E/F#
Verse 2:
So the [E]straw-dog threw rock-salt
And the[E/A] precious girl took a bow and walked
[E/F#]As I ran my finger over the screen door
Yeah [E]every kiss has reeked of betrayal
Since m[E/A]y heroine jumped the guardrail
And[E/F#] decided who she wanted to be once more
Now[E] every night Iā??m paralyzed
By the[E/A] fear of rope burns and morning light
[E/F#]And the smell of wet cement
Since I became irrel[E]evant
Interlude: E/A, E/F#, E, E/A, E/F#
Verse 3:
Now [E]memory is just a flash flood
A[E/A] thick and black sticky mud
And[E/F#] heartache itā??s like a breaking bone
Verse 4:
It was always[E] twelve hours on a missionary line
[E/A]I think I would've spared some time
But I didn'[E/F#]t I never went home
Now it o[E]ccurs to me like blinds un-drawn
Or a[E/A] bullet from a shotgun
[E/F#]That she knew long ago what it meant
To feel irre[E]levant [E/A] [E/F#]
Last Verse:
Now Iā??[E]m always smil[E/A]ing crying
And hiding my intent
Since I became irrel[E]evant
Outro: E, E/A, E/F# (x3) E
