Great Expectations

	  		
Intro: C  Am  C  Am  Fmaj7  C 

C 
Mary, this station is playing every sad song 
  Am 
I remember like we were alive 
  C 
I heard and sung them all from inside of these walls 
     Am 
In a prison cell, where we spent those nights 
         C 
And they burned up the diner where I always used to find her 
Am 
Licking young boys blood from her claws 
      C 
And I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew 
             Am 
Her hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb 

Fmaj7                   G 
My heart's like, like a wound 

          Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
But I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
Am        Fmaj7            C                   G 
Everybody leaves and I'd expect this much from you 
      Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
Am        Fmaj7      C    G            C  
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you? 

C 
Mary, I worried and stalled every night of my life 
       Am 
Better safe than making then making the party 
    C 
And I never had a good time, I sat by my bedside 
     Am 
With papers and poetry about Estella 

Fmaj7      G 
Great expectations 
           Fmaj7         G 
We had the greatest expectations 

      Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
Am        Fmaj7         C            G 
Everybody left me Mary, why wouldn't you? 
      Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
Am        Fmaj7      C    G            Am   Fmaj7  C  G 
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you? 

                   Am         Fmaj7  C  G 
It's funny how the night moves 
                    Am    Fmaj7  C  G 
Humming a song from 1962 

        Fmaj7  G 
We were always waiting 
        Fmaj7  G 
We were always waiting 
        Fmaj7  G                        Am     G 
We were always waiting for something to happen 

      Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
Am        Fmaj7         C            G 
Everybody left me Mary, why wouldn't you? 
      Am          Fmaj7           C              G 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
Am        Fmaj7      C    G            C     Am    C   Am  Fmaj7  G   C  
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you?
