Intro:  Fm   Eb 

Verse: 
Gm7                             Ab     
 I woke up this morning, August 3rd 
                                         Eb 
It's been a pretty slow and uneventful summer 

Went to visit a friend in Santa Fe 
 Cm                                      Eb 
Went to New Orleans and went to see my family 
                                Ab 
Woke up this morning and it occurred 
                                          Cm 
I needed one more track to finish up my record 
                                   Eb 
I was feeling out of fuel and uninspired 
                                                   Cm 
Laid on my bed, too hung, a little down, a little tired 
                                      Eb 
Met my girl and we walked down Union Street 
                                             
I was scared and my head was in a bunch of places 
                           Gm7 
Bought a $350 pair of lampshades 
                                     Ab 
And we ate at Perry's and I ordered crab cakes 

           Gm7 
Blue crab cakes 
           Ab 
Blue crab cakes 
           Gm7 
Blue crab cakes 


Verse: 
                       Cm                                     Eb 
She said I seemed distracted and asked what was going on with me 
                                                
I said I can't explain it and it's a middle age thing 
                                   Bb 
She said okay and ate her eggs Benedict 
                                                     Ab 
And I looked at the walls cluttered with sports bar shit 

            Gm7 
Sports bar shit 
            Ab            
Sports bar shit 
            Gm7    Bbm7 
Sports bar shit 

      Gm7 
Ba ba ba 
      Ab 
Ba ba ba 
      Gm7    Fm  Eb    Fm  Eb 
Ba ba ba   
   

Verse: 
Fm 
Got on the phone and I called my mother 
                                                  Eb 
And called my father, talked a little bit with my sister 
                                         
She's got a new boyfriend, he's a deer hunter 
                               
And she's getting used to venison 
Cm 
And my dad's still fighting with his girlfriend 
 Gm 
About his flirting with the girls in Panera Bread 
   Eb 
My mom is good but sounded out of breath 
   Gm                     Fm7          Ab 
I worry so much about her, I worry to death 
Fm7          Gm7 
 I worry to death 
                      Ab 
I worry about her to death 
Fm7          Gm7 
 I worry to death 


Verse: 
Fm 
The other night I went and saw The Postal Service 
                                           Eb 
Ben's my friend but getting there was the worst  

Trying to park and getting up the hill  
                                                         Fm 
And find a spot amongst the drunk kids staring at their cells 

Standing at the back with the crowd of eight thousand 
                                    Eb 
I thought of Ben when I met him in 2000 

At a festival in Spain 
                                                      Cm 
He was on the small stage then and I didn't know his name 

Now he's singing at the Greek and he's busting moves 
        Bb                                Eb 
And my legs were hurting and my feet were too 
                                                    Gm 
I called him after, said I'll skip the backstage hi/bye 
                                  Fm           Ab 
But thanks for the nice music and all the exercise 
Fm                          Gm7 
And we laughed and it was alright 
                            Ab 
And we laughed and it was alright 
    Fm7        Gm7 
And it was alright 

  
Verse: 
                Gm 
There's a fine line between a middle-aged guy with a backstage pass 
                                            Eb 
And a guy with a gut hanging around like a jackass 
                                   
Everybody there was twenty years younger than me 

I'll leave with this, not my fondest memory 
   Gm              Ab                     
I carried my legs back down and then I gave 
                            Eb 
My backstage passes to two cute asian girls 

I drove to my place near Tahoe 
 Cm                                                 Fm 
Got in my hot tub and I thought well that's how it goes 

And it was quiet and I was listening to the crickets 

And Ben's still out there, selling lots of tickets 
      Eb 
And though Iā??m contented, thereā??s a tinge of competitiveness 
                                        
But Ben's my friend and I know he gets it 
 Cm 
Then in a couple of days my meltdown passed 
 Bb                                    Eb 
Back to the studio doing twelve hours shifts 

Singing a song about one thing or another 
  Gm                                     Ab 
Another day behind the microphone this summer 


OUTRO:               
           Fm    Gm7 
This Tenderloin summer 
                Ab 
This Tenderloin summer 
                Gm7     Fm 
This Tenderloin summer 
      Cm7 
Ba ba ba 
      Ab 
Ba ba ba 
      Cm    Fm  Eb    Fm  Eb 
Ba ba ba
