Red Vines


From the album, ”Bachelor No. 2” 1999

Capo 1


   D         Bm            F#m         G
They're all still on their honeymoon
     D        Bm          F#m
Just read the dialogue balloon
F#       G
Everyone loves you - 
D               A
Why should they not?
    D       Bm           F#m       G
And I'm the only one who knows
     D     Bm              F#m
That Disneyland's about to close
F#         G          D         A
I don't suppose you'd give it a shot
        E               Em
Knowing all that you've got


              D   A          Em
Are cigarettes and Red Vines
                              G
Just close your eyes, 'cause, baby -
    D        A
You never do know
                   D   A
And I'll be on the sidelines
        Em
With my hands tied
G            D         A       Em
Watching the show


Well it's always fun and games until
It's clear you haven't got the skill
In keeping the gag  from
Going too far
So your running round the parking lot
'til every lightening bug is caught
puching some pinholes
in the lid of a jar
while we wait in the car

             D   A          Em
With cigarettes and Red Vines
                              G
Just close your eyes, 'cause, baby -
    D        A
You never do know
                   D   A
And I'll be on the sidelines
        Em
With my hands tied
G            D         A       Em
Watching the show

                      G    Bm    D
And tell me, would it kill you
                G     Bm   D
Would it really spoil everything
              G         Bm
If you didn't blame yourself
       Em
Do you know what I mean?


                   D   A          Em
Cigarettes and Red Vines
                              G
Just close your eyes, 'cause, baby -
    D        A
You never do know
                   D   A
And I'll be on the sidelines
        Em
With my hands tied
G            D         A       Em
Watching the show

             D      A      Em
Watching the show
             D      A      Em
Watching the show
             D      A      Em
Watching the show  etc etc
