[verse]
B                              F#
I guess by now you're feeling sorry for me
Well that's the way this story's meant to be
Take a look around, you won't see much that's right
Your kid might be in the Boy Scouts, but he's kicking queers at night

[chorus]
D                            G
Tell me a single thing life teaches you
Tell me a single death that reaches you
You deny you've got a soul to preach to
Try and save him, I beseech you

B                             G
I've done all I can, he never cut his hair
  B                      Am      G
I washed my hands of the whole affair
D                    Cm         Bb      
Twenty years in jail seems a little harsh
      D              Cm      Bb     Fsus4     F     Fsus4    F
But I bow to the law and the chosen path

[bridge]
Abmaj7             Gsus4/C G/D 
   Is it me, for a moment      
Cm    Cm/Bb     Abmaj7   
  The stars are falling 
Eb          Cm7 Abmaj9     Eb         Cm7 Abmaj9 
    The heat is rising,       the past is calling

E        Ab

[repeat]
I guess by now you're feeling sorry for him
Well that's OK, 'cause they put him in the bin
Take a look around, take a walk out in the park
You can still see all the old ladies scared stiff of the dark

Tell me etc.

Fmaj7                  Cmaj7         D
    Some nights I still sleep on the beach
Fmaj7             Cmaj7         D
    Remember when stars were in reach
