G Gmaj7 C C X4

[Verse 1]
G           Gmaj7                C
The glory of a misspent youth
G                               Gmaj7
Chasing tire stains in muted thunder
Trading sex for drugs
Em                     C                     D
And my Ophelia does not drown
She just barely hangs on

[Verse 2]
G                     Gmaj7                   C
Now driving drunk in Daddy’s car
G           Gmaj7                     C
Honey, I won’t spoil the ending
Em                     C                     D
But see that bend up in the road?
Didn’t it seem that the night
Was a little too quiet?

[Verse 3]
When it seems your subjects
Am                     G
Have all forgotten you
C                               D                     Em
I need you to pretend that you are mine
D                                         Am
And the water is just deep enough to
Take another chance
Am                     C                     D
Ah, but the river doesn’t want you tonight

G Gmaj7 C C X2

[Verse 4]
G           Gmaj7                   C
The engine was not built to last
G                               Gmaj7
And there’s a permanence
To the memory of a bruise
Em                     C
But I still take it on
D           C           C
The chin for yo-u

[Verse 5]
G                     Bm           C
You are not alone here
G           Bm           C
But you ain’t helping me none
Em           C             G
Disabled motorist
Em           C           G           Gmaj7
In the road, I have become one
Em     C           G
Disabled motorist
Em           C           G           D
In the road, I have become one
