     G                       D
The day you left and you called me bitch
     Em                         C
I called you selfish - Better pull that switch
G   F            C             F-C
    Put my son on amphetamines
    G                      D
He came home cryiní and thereís your proof 
   Em                       C 
Crying Ďbout nothing but missing tooth
G   F               C      F-C
    I did the right thing
      D         
You shade the truth almost every day
  Em             D               C
Phone calls at night, ďItís gonna be OKĒ

           G
Are you signing, baby, 
F            C    F-C 
Under the bridge? 
           G
Are you signing, baby, 
F          C    F-C 
On Lake Street?

Little drawing of a medicine wheel 
          G              D          C 
Well, everything thatís given you steal

G                       D
Maybe youíll wake up in jail alone
Em                         C
And hold the handle of the one pay phone
G   F                 C     F-C
    And do the right thing 
     G                     D     
Like I once tried though I bent the truth 
    Em                      C
A five dollar debt for a little lost tooth 
G     F                      C         F-C    
      Thereís a payback in front of me 
        D
ĎCause once you were like a walking heart, 
 Em           D                  C
Breaking in motion through the parking lot 

           G
Are you signing, baby, 
F            C    F-C 
Under the bridge? 
           G
Are you signing, baby, 
F          C    F-C 
On Lake Street? 
Em
Black marker on cardboard

Well, everything thatís given you steal

Everything thatís given, you steal

Words of encouragement are just as real 
Em        D          C  
Same effect as a smooth blue pill 

           G
Are you signing, baby, 
F            C    F-C 
Under the bridge? 
           G

On Lake Street?
