Jesse Malin - 'Brooklyn'
'The Fine Art of Self Destruction' 2002

Really nice song. The verses are all the same, just E to A. And I've only written 
out the chorus once, again it's always the same. Chord spacing looks a bit out in 
this format but it's pretty much a bar each at the intro/verse/bridge and half a 
bar for the chorus/link. Enjoy!

Capo 2nd fret.

The last car on the line

I guess you're back doing time

The ghost of Christmas past

Left Walt Whitman in the trash

You started out with nothing but lonely days
       Asus2	        E		  Abm6/Eb   Aadd9
You used to like the sad songs of doom and gloom
         Asus2           E     	     Abm6/Eb   Aadd9
You started with nothing but throwaways
       Asus2	       E	          Abm6/Eb   Aadd9
You couldn't live with me so you moved to Brooklyn

Artificial desserts
Some have cars some have kids
Hit the pathmark after work
Some never been past the bridge

No more couches to surf
Only beaches in your dreams
No more trannies near work
It's still a drag walking in Queens

It's all blood money in the bank
Somehow some people find the nerve
Like the soldiers they thank down in DC
If I could only find the words
