C/Cmaj7  Fmaj7/Fmaj7*    x2
Basically, JD's pulling off the C on the 2nd string for both chords in the intro. Listen to the track to figure out the shuffle-y rhythm.

C                                F      Am
Window mounted air conditioning unit
Humming like a hive
C                                F                     
We want to send postcards to the friends we used to have
            Am         G              F            G
Rub their noses in the ugly fact that we are still alive

       F      G  
And we played
       C      Am
Lovers reggae
   F             G
On accordion and banjo
F                G
when the moon is high
        F    G
And we lie
        C    Am
on the floor
    F                 G
Get suspicious of the people
    F                  G        C
who just moved in next door

                     F(8)                        C
The bad taste in our mouths, the twinkle in your eye
                  F(8)  G(8)              C  Intro
Good things never last, bad things never die

Wind chime from Tahiti that we found down at the auction
Tolls its minor chord
And I can't think of one thing in this whole wide blessed world
That's more dangerous and frightening than you when you get bored

We go through
scads of money
Don't know where it comes from
Don't know where it goes
And we stare
out the window
See the poisoned flowers the neighbors grow
Sprouting up in nice neat rows

The swelling in our limbs, the twinkle in your eye
Good things never last, bad things never die
