Intro: D  Dmaj7/9    D6/9  G
       Em D(type II) Em7*  A

(*On the recorded version, John plays Em7, but live he plays C.)

 D                 Dmaj7/9   D6/9               G
 Out behind the safeway      just before the flood
 Em                        D(type II)
 Huffed some cans of spray paint
         A7sus4*           A
 And began to vomit blood.

(*On the recorded version, John plays A7sus4 here, but live he usually plays C for all three verses.)

 G                      D
 One more night in this town's
       Bm                  G
 Gonna break me I just know
G                     D              A                     D
 Hang on to your dreams 'til someone makes you let them go.

Stumbled on down indian hill,
Tail between my legs
Sick taste in my mouth
         C                        A
Folger's Crystals and hard boiled eggs
If I can't run away tonight
I don't know what I'll do
Hang on to your dreams 'til someone beats them out of you

E7       A7        D   G
   Do what you have to do
E7      A7                D       
   Go where you have to go
F#m                     G                            A
 When the time comes to loosen up your grip, you'll know

 Called my friend in New York
 Three thousand miles away
                                    C                  A
 Halfway through her metamorphosis, nothing I could say
 Poured my small resentments like rare and priceless gems
 Hang on to your dreams until there's nothing left of them

D   Dmaj7/9     D6/9   G
Em  D(type II)  G      A
G   D           Bm     G
