Avoiding Catatonic Surrender  Tim Barry

Tuning: Standard-ish ---He even writes on the album:
"one take, in tune- no, drunk- yes"
This song is pretty basic. Listen to it for the hammer-ons and such.
F G C (walk down to) Am
[F] [G] [Am]  
Verse 1:
[C] [Am] [F] [G]  
it's lonely in the Garden State, the place of no left turns
in a Motel 6 in East Brunswick smoking 'till my lungs burn
i put ice in the trash can to cool down my beer
breathe in the perfume in the room of the person last here
i can't stand this singing, i can't stand this song
i can't stand being home, lord i can't stand being gone
my ears ring when it's quiet and i ain't heard a thing all day
and I'd call if I could but right now i ain't got nothing to say
Chorus: (Same progression as intro)
F G C (walk down to) Am
[F] [G] [Am]  
and so on, and so long
i can't keep singing these songs for too long, and so on
Verse 2: (same as one)
the first night we met we f**ked on the couch in my living room
and spent the morning pretending it didn't happen searching for your lost phone
which i found between the cushions, below a pile of our clothes, you said you couldn't
with out it, I should have kept my eyes closed
i left for work directly then for a 15 hour day made just over a hundred bucks none of
I ever saved
didn't hear too much from you before and never heard from you again
cause as soon as this sh*t starts boy it's bound to end
Chorus: Same as above chorus
Verse 3:
i throw empty beer cans at the tv when I'm watching the news
i hate republicans I hate democrats I hate liberals too
I think pacifists are weak and violence is wrong but I go limp for police and i fight
it's called for
the truth is i don't know or care with who or where I fit in at all
but I keep on living simple RIDING FAST AND LIVING SLOW
i write standard boring songs with boring standard chords just like the best and the
 - verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-repeat and so on...
