Tabbed by Steve Russell

Verses: E C#m A F# A Chorus bit: E A7

I got off work just past 11 Laid one finger to the breeze You can almost taste the action On nights like these

Trees were bending in the wind And you were 40 miles away And I was headed your direction I'd been waiting all day, i'd been waiting all day

Moon over West Covina Was huge and white And I was like a patient on a table Headed toward the light Leaned toward the center divider Feel the wind in my hair Keep a light up in your window I'm gonna be right there, I'm gonna be right there With a gleam in my eye and an almost airtight alibi

Down by the Chemistry building I found a quiet place to park And I made my way down the street toward your place Stepping lightly in the dark Climbed the steps up to your doorway Like a man prepared to jump beneath a train It's real warm outside tonight Maybe tomorrow it rains, maybe tomorrow it rains

Inside your room we shut the window And we turned on a fan And we lay there together in the darkness I can keep a secret if you can Finishing one another's sentences Like a pair of identical twins Your boyfriend's out of town until Tuesday And nobody saw me come in, nobody saw me come in

With a gleam in my eye and an almost airtight alibi


Based on the above tab, I worked out the following:

Verses: E C#m A F# B
Between Verses:  E A B
Chorus bit: E A E B

I'm really not sure about those A's and B's.  They maybe 7ths, or something else.

<code> Great addition with all the tabs, will try and help out where I can. 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 Pretty sure it's an F#minor for the verse too.

Between and for the chorus sounds like an A minor too.

So for them it goes something like E Am B E Am B
