Intro: D, A, D, A, G
Verse One:
You were an [D]old [A] f[G]riend
The k[Bm]ind I could co[G]nfide in
And d[D]rink [A] w[G]ith on ra[Bm]ndom neighbour's po[G]rch steps
Our gl[Bm]ossy eyes painted p[G]ortraits of the s[A]treets[G]
Repeat Intro
Verse Two:
You were an [D]old [A] fr[G]iend
That c[Bm]overed up your i[G]nnocence
With f[D]ive [A] [G]tattoos of all the b[Bm]ands you loved in hi[G]gh school
The o[Bm]nes you said that I [G]had to listen [A]to [G] all the time
( Tab from: )
Verse Three:
[D]I did what I did to get a[G]way from t[D]his
Cause ev[Bm]erything that's hap[G]pened has left [D]me a total wreck
And everyth[D]ing that I do now is m[G]eaningle[D]ss
So I'm o[Bm]ff to wander aro[G]und the worl[D]d for a little bit
Without one [F#m]hundred channels with nothing on the [G]TV
And the gre[F#m]at pessimistic un[G]known[A]
So does a[G]nyone know the best w[D]ay to go?
Which r[A]oad that I could take to get to M[Bm]exico?
Cause I[G]'m so sick of living i[D]n this ditch
With onl[A]y the memory in the b[Bm]ack of my head
I'm on cr[G]uise control and the ra[Bm]dio was on
Yeah, they [G]were playing that song
That we both learned on our Me[Bm]xican guitars
I'm on cru[G]ise control and the ra[Bm]dio was on
They were p[G]laying that song
That we both learned on our Mexican g[Bm]uitars
On our Me[G]xican guitars, on our Me[Bm]xican guitars
On our Me[G]xican guitars, on our Me[Bm]xican guitars
You were my o[G]ld fr[F#m]iend
