Genesis 3:23

-tabbed by Mike Wojciechowski

C  G/B  Am  F  G  C G/B

Same pattern for most of the song besides the bridge, listen to the song for the shuffle-y rhythm.

C G/B               Am  F 
  House up in Clearlake
F        G        C  C/B  
Where I used to live
Picked the lock on the front door
And felt it give

Touch nothing move nothing stand still
Keep my ears open for cars
See how the people here live now
F                              G
Hope they’re better at it than I was

           C G/B  Am   
I used to live .. here
           F      Am
I used to live .. here
           C G/B  Am   
I used to live .. here
          Bb      C
I used to live .. here

Intro Riff

Pictures up on the mantle
Nobody I know
I, stand by the tiny furnace
Where the long shadows grow

Living room to bedroom to kitchen
Familiar and warm
Hours we spent starving within these walls
Sounds of a distant storm

I used to live .. here (4x)

Dm                              C
Fight through the ghosts in the hallway
Bb           C
Duck and weave
Dm                        C
Stand by the door with my eyes closed
          Bb         G
When it’s time to leave

Steal home before sunset
Cover up my tracks
Drive home with old dreams of play in my mind
And the wind at my back
Break the lock on my own garden gate
When I get home after dark
Sit looking up at the stars outside
Like teeth in the mouth of a shark

I used to live .. here (4x)

DJW - I hear the intro chords as C  G/B  Am  G  F  G  C G/B, 
and I kind of hear F C on the second line of the chorus. YMMV.
