The Spirit of Jazz  The Gaslight Anthem

The 9th track off of the newest addition to The Gaslight Athem's back catalogue
'American Slang.' If you don't have this album I highly reccommend it. One of my
new all time faves!
Here goes...
Intro: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse)
Verse:
[G]The cool is dead, baby go on to sleep
[E]Rest your weary head and lover bury me
[G]And in the morning we'll start over again
[E]That's how they do it up on the [C]screen
[G]So me and my baby we would dance all night
[E]But I don't know the steps in my baby's time
[G]To do it like they do it for the girls uptown
[E]I hear they light 'em up like the [C]blues
Pre-Chorus:
So I'm [E]waiting, so I'm [C]waiting
And she's [E]waiting, and she's [C]waiting
For us to [D]remember...
Chorus:
Was I [E]good to [C]you, the [G]wife of my [D]youth
Not [E]another soul could [C]love you like my [G]rotten bones [D]do
So [E]I will [C]wait on the [G]edges in [D]between
These [C]New York [D]streets
Where you and I would [G]meet
Post Chorus: G, E, G, E, C (the same as the verse)
Verse 2:
[G]For 29 years we loved that line
[E]And I would take it easy if I had your mind
[G]But I'm a cannonball to a house on fire
[E]And you're slow like Motown [C]Soul
[G]So what now lover with your long black hair?
[E]If I cut you open baby I can repair
[G]And bandage your wounds with the salt on my tongue
[E]And I'm the only one 'round [C]here
Pre-Chorus 2:
So I'm [E]waiting, so I'm [C]waiting
And she's [E]waiting, and she's [C]waiting
For us to [D]recover...
Chorus 2:
So was[E] I good [C]to you, t[G]he wife of [D]my youth
Not [E]another soul could [C]love you like my [G]rotten bones [D]do
So [E]I will [C]wait on the [G]edges in [D]between
These [C]New York [D]streets
Where you and I would [G]meet
Bridge:
And only [E]I c[C]an [G]heal your [D]wounds
Only [E]I [C]can [G]heal your [D]wounds
When you [E]can't go [C]on
When you [G]can't go [D]on
When you [E]can't go [C]on
When you [D]can't go on, [E]anymore...
Muted Pre-Chorus:
So was I [E]good to [C]you, the [G]wife of my [D]youth
Not [E]another soul could [C]love you
Like my[G]...[D]
Chorus 3:
So was[E] I good [C]to you, t[G]he wife of [D]my youth
Not [E]another soul could [C]love you like my [G]rotten bones [D]do
So [E]I will [C]wait on the [G]edges in [D]between
These [C]New York [D]streets
On all these [C]New York [D]streets
Where you and I would [G]meet
Hopefully everything is okay but as I worked this out by ear who knows?
Enjoy! :)
