From the album ĒCharmerĒ 2012

Intro: G / Dm C /G

G                                                 G7
Spent my nights in a sleeping bag smelling kerosene
C
thinking fog and sand
Am
was gonna keep me clean
G                             G7
feeding all the bluejays at the wrong address
C
where they went instead
Am
I could only guess

G
Tell the barfly
             Dm
who runs this town
Bb
you wonít get high
              C
youíll just get down
G
tell the barfly
   Dm
itís on his dime
Bb
you wonít get high
     C
so do the time

G / Dm C /G

Took a breath full of iodine and I overdosed
and the tide crept high
like a watery ghost
and no one needs your kind
of a dope sick clown
you can always find
sitting one seat down

Tell the barfly
who rolls the dice
your numbers up
so roll it twice
tell the barfly
itís on his dime
you wonít get high
so do the time

G / Dm C /G

           Am                 G            D
Honey, Iím not the one whoís of use to you now
Am
I get an hourís sleep at night
        G           D
and I canít see how
      D                    Am
you deserve all the mess that even guilt wonít allow

instr. like chorus

Tell the barfly
who runs this town
you wonít get high
youíll just get down
tell the barfly
itís on his dime
you wonít get high
so do the time
