Pittsburgh  Mason Jennings

from Blood of Man
Tabbed by Drew Langworthy
Tuned half a step down
[G]My mom'd give me t[Em]wenty and say "S[G]tay out till da[Em]wn"
When he[C]r boyfriend was over[Am] and they w[C]anted me gon[G]e
[G]I would walk through the [Em]woods to the[G] old graveyar[Em]d
And[C] roll my own tops [Am]and think tw[C]o kinda thought[G]s[Em]
Are we [C]high enough to c[Em]lear these trees?
I don't kno[G]w[Em]
[G]That was the su[Em]mmer Dave'[G]s girlfriend OD'[Em]ed
She die[C]d in the bathroom [Am]at a par[C]ty down the stre[G]et
[G]I went to see him the ne[Em]xt night, he [G]had a new tatto[Em]o
He was [C]watching home movies of [Am]her, his face was [C]wet, he looked so conf[G]used
[G]They had a funeral for [Em]her, the preache[G]r said she was with the L[Em]ord
There were[C] lots of pictures of her[Am] taped to a [C]poster boar[G]d[Em]
Are we [C]high enough to cl[Em]ear these trees?
I don't kno[G]w[Em]
Are we hi[C]gh enough to cl[Em]ear this place?
I don't kn[D]ow
[C]Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their o[G]wn kinda light
[C]High school halls and shopping malls never f[G]it me right
But my [C]heart would swing free like [D]a lasso from my hand
When I'd[C] hear that sound and put the pedal d[D]own
[G]I wound up that f[Em]all in a[G] hospital[Em]
On th[C]e suicide wing[Am] with a lot of people t[C]hinkin' one thi[G]ng[Em]
[G]They had a sign on the w[Em]all that said [G]"No touching at all"[Em]
There were[C] screams in the dark[Am], nurses runn[C]ing down the hal[G]l[Em]
[G]On the night that I [Em]got there, they s[G]howered me and searched me h[Em]ard
Then they [C]took me to my little room[Am] overlooking a[C] graveyard[G] [Em]
[G]When I opened my eye[Em]s I was st[G]rapped to the be[Em]d
There was [C]a needle in my arm[Am], par[C]t of me was go[G]ne[Em]
[G]Then they took us out[Em]side in our sl[G]ippers and gow[Em]ns
To play[C] basketball on the blac[Am]ktop, the ball just bo[C]unced till it stop[G]ped[Em]
Are we [C]high enough to cl[Em]ear these trees?
I don't kno[G]w[Em]
Are we hi[C]gh enough to cl[Em]ear this place?
I don't kn[D]ow
[C]Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their o[G]wn kinda light
[C]High school halls and shopping malls never f[G]it me right
But my [C]heart would swing free like [D]a lasso from my hand
When I'd[C] hear that sound and put the pedal d[D]own
[G]When the leaves wer[Em]e wet be[G]hind the old du[Em]plex
We used t[C]o run at nigh[Am]t nak[C]ed through the [G]trees[Em]
[G]And you would lean back agains[Em]t me and I would [G]try to stay soft[Em]
We'd li[C]sten to the eng[Am]ines as the[C] planes took [G]off[Em]
