Capo on 8th

Intro:

Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

D  Dmaj7  Bm  A   G  D  G  A (x2)


Verse 1:

D
Back back way back
          Dmaj7                    Bm                        A
I used to front like Angkor Wat, Mechanicsburg, Anchorage and Dar es Salaam

      G                      D
While home from New York was champagne and disco
G                 A
Tapes from L.A. slash San Francisco

    D                    Dmaj7
But actually Oakland and not Alameda
     Bm                           A
Your girl was in Berkeley with her communist reader
G                         D
Mine was entombed within boombox and Walkman
G                    A
I was a hoarder but girl, that was back then



Bridge:

D  Dmaj7  Bm  A



Chorus:

    D                   Dmaj7            Bm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          A
What you on about?
  G             D        G              A
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones

    D                 Dmaj7         Bm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        A
Such a modest mouse
  G            D       G            A
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone


D                Dmaj7                 Bm               A
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

G  D  G  A


Verse 2:

D                      Dmaj7
Ancestors told me that their girl was better
      Bm                        A
She's richer than Croesus, she's tougher than leather
G                      D
I just ignored all the tales of a past life
G                    A
Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife
    D                               Dmaj7
And punks who would laugh when they saw us together
     Bm                     A
Well they didn't know how to dress for the weather
G                          D
I can still see them there huddled on Astor
G                        A
Snow falling slow to the sound of the Master


Chorus:

    D                   Dmaj7            Bm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          A
What you on about?
  G             D        G              A
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones

    D                 Dmaj7         Bm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        A
Such a modest mouse
  G            D       G            A
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone

D  Dmaj7  Bm  A   G  D  G  A


Verse 3:

D                         Dmaj7
Wisdom's a gift but you'd trade it for youth
Bm                     A
Age is an honour - it's still not the truth
G                          D
We saw the stars when they hid from the world
G                          A
You cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl
D                      Dmaj7
Maybe she's gone and I can't resurrect her
    Bm                       A
The truth is she doesn't need me to protect her
   G                               D
We don't know the true death - the true way of all flesh
G                    A
Everyone's dying but girl - you're not old yet

Chorus:

    D                   Dmaj7            Bm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          A
What you on about?
  G             D        G              A
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones

    D                 Dmaj7         Bm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        A
Such a modest mouse
  G            D       G            A
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone


    D                   Dmaj7            Bm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          A
What you on about?
  G             D        G              A
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones

    D                 Dmaj7         Bm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        A
Such a modest mouse
  G            D       G            A
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone


D                Dmaj7                 Bm               A
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

G  D  G  A  D
