Alex Punch Brothers
Alex, Short and Sweet,
leave your boyfriends at home and the drinks are on me next [G7]week.
He seems like a real good guy,
but you're [Em]only as [Eb]good as your l[Db]ast go[C]odbye.
[C]Alex, let your long hair down,
like the prettiest brush you could ever use to paint this [G7]town,
because you know as well as I do
that we're [Em]only as g[Eb]ood as our l[Db]ast good[C]byes.
"[Ab]What will we [Eb]do, wh[C]er[dim]e will we g[Fm]o?"
Alexandra, I [Cm]don't really k[Dbdim7]now.
[Fm]"When will it [Cm]end?" When[Ebdim]ever you [Dm7b5]want it [Adim]to.[G]
Alex to your health!
May you never outgrow the need to outdo yourself,
and heed the jealous cry
of a sitting duck stuck to his last goodbye.
Skyward they flew 'til it was as far
to the street as it was to the stars,
and to stardust as peanut shells on the parlor floor.
Instrumental: C Am Em Dm G C Am Em Eb G
"What have we done, where have we gone?"
Nothing, above and beyond.
"When will it end?" Alexandra, it's already done.
I told you honey, short and sweet!
It's a damn sight better than long and bitter, don't you think?
Keep your feet wet and your eyes dry,
'cause you're o[C]nly as g[Bb]ood as your l[Ab]ast good[C]bye,
you're only as [Bb]good as your[Ab] last [B]goodbye,
yeah, you're only as [Bb]good as your [Db]last [C]goodbye.
