Alibi (album version from Babylon Springs)


E Am B (x2)

E
I got off work just past 11
C#m
Laid one finger to the breeze
A
You can almost taste the action
F#m                  B
On nights like these

E
Trees were bending in the wind
C#m
You were 40 miles away
    A
And I was headed your direction
F#m                      B                      (E)
I'd been waiting all day, I'd been waiting all day

E Am B (x2)

E
Moon over West Covina
C#m
Was huge and white
    A
And I was like a patient on a table
F#m                  B
Headed for the light

E
Leaned toward the center divider
C#m
Feel the wind in my hair
A
Keep a light up in your window
F#m                      B                     (E)
I'm gonna be right there, I'm gonna be right there

E                  Am
With a gleam in my eye
       E      C#m      A       B 
and an almost airtight   alibi

E C#m A B 
E

E
Down by the Chemistry building
C#m
I found a quiet place to park
       A
And I made my way down the street toward your place
F#m                         B
Stepping lightly in the dark

E
Climbed the steps up to your doorway
       C#m
Like a man prepared to jump beneath a train
          A
It's real warm outside tonight
F#m                     B                     (E)
Maybe tomorrow it rains, maybe tomorrow it rains

E Am B (x2)

E
Inside your room we shut the window
C#m
And we turned on a fan
       A
And we lay there together in the darkness
F#m                            B
I can keep a secret if you can

E
Finishing one another's sentences
       C#m
Like a pair of identical twins
     A
Your boyfriend's out of town until Tuesday
F#m                       B                   (E)
And nobody saw me come in, nobody saw me come in

E                  Am
With a gleam in my eye 
       E      C#m      A       B
And an almost airtight   alibi

E C#m A B
E

E Am B (x4)

End on an E chord

Thanks to Dan and others for starting this off
I just fixed a few errors and typed it out/formatted for readability
-miranda
I'm thinkin' this is how it goes for this one
There's a rundown at the A chord during the verse.
Goes A /(G#)/(F#)/(E) with the notes in parentheses being the bassnotes on the 5th/6th strings.

Verses: E C#m A /G#/F#/E F#m B
