State of the Union  Richard Shindell

CAPO: 3rd Fret
INTRO: Em C (5x)
That [Em]nice easy [G]mark at the [C]edge of the [G]park[C]
A slam dunk if [G]ever I [C]saw [D]one
I [Em]don't know what [G]happened, I just [C]let it go [G]by
I [C]guess maybe [D]out of re[Em]spect[C] [Em] [C]
This old [Em]town is my [G]home, and I'm [C]not so far [G]gone[C]
That I don't feel like [G]anyone [C]else[D]
And it [Em]didn't seem [G]right to [C]add to the [G]wrong
I de[C]cided to [D]get me some [Em]help
CHORUS:
If [C]not now, then when? I was [D]asking my[Em]self
[C]Over and [G]over a[D]gain
Make it [Em]right, get [G]free, get [C]rid of the [Am]junk
I've [C]heard it can [D]happen that [Em]way[C] [Em] [C]
So I went [Em]down to the [G]clinic on a [C]Hundred and [G]Tenth
I [C]got on the [G]methado[C]ne program[D]
I [Em]waited on [G]line every [C]morning at [G]nine
For my [C]little white [D]cup, my re[Em]prieve[C] [Em] [C]
It was [Em]going o[G]kay, I was [C]feeling al[G]right
I [C]even got [G]back with[C] my [D]daughter
I [Em]lost a few [G]friends, they were [C]anything [G]but[C]
Just took it one [D]day at [Em]time
CHORUS:
If [C]not now, then when? I was [D]asking my[Em]self
[C]Over and [G]over a[D]gain
Make it [Em]right, get [G]free, get [C]rid of the [Am]junk[C]
They say it can [D]happen that [Em]way[C] [Em] [C]
INSTRUMENTAL: G C G C G C D Em G C G C D Em C Em C
I [Em]can't say for [G]sure how it [C]all fell a[G]part[C]
One thing just [G]led t[C]o a[D]nother
[Em]Next thing I [G]knew, I had [C]stolen a [G]car
I was [C]flying straight [D]up to the [Em]Bronx[C] [Em] [C]
Must've [Em]lost the old [G]touch, I [C]blew through a [G]toll
They [C]caught me just [G]outside of [C]Ry[D]e
Sporting [Em]all that re[G]mained of my [C]new-found re[G]solve
A [C]shirt that [D]said NYP[Em]D
CHORUS:
Some [C]shred of my soul could [D]almost be[Em]lieve
That the [C]Lord sent those [G]cruisers for [D]me
Make it [Em]right, get [G]free, get [C]rid of the [Am]junk[C]
But it don't always [D]happen that [Em]way
INTERLUDE: C Em C Em C Em C
At the [Em]half-way house[G] we're [C]sitting a[G]round
[C]Watching the [G]State of the [C]Uni[D]on
Me, I'm [Em]rolling that [G]stone [C]right back up the [G]hill
Watch [C]out for the [D]sh*t coming [Em]down[C] [Em] [C]
'Cause the [Em]President's [G]up there [C]grinning that [G]grin
[C]Thinking he's some[G] kind of [C]John [D]Wayne
We're [Em]howling and [G]jeering, all his [C]talk about [G]drilling
And [C]shooting our [D]way out of [Em]this
CHORUS:
If [C]not now then when, we're all [D]asking our[Em]selves
[C]Over and [G]over a[D]gain
Make it [Em]right? Get [G]free? Get [C]rid of the [Am]junk?[C]
But it don't always [D]happen that [Em]way
OUTRO: C Em C Em C Em C Em C Em C Em C Em
