E
 There was one thing
   B                          A
 I found that I couldn't help thinking
         E
 As they pried me
 B                     A
 Free with the jaws of life
         E       B                     A
 None of this disaster would ever have happened
      E            B                     A
 If I had not been driving my neighbor's wife

        G#m
 To the Alta Loma Days Inn,
 Where I'd registered us as
   A
 A couple with a name I'm sure
      B
 Some other couple somewhere has

E    B    A (play twice)

And the last thing 
I saw before falling unconscious
Was your right hand 
Tracing a heart on my thigh
And I thought my god what an infantile gesture
And I thought my god what an indescribable high

The autumn air was sweeter 
Than a slice of wedding cake
As I overshot the exit and 
I tried and failed to find the brake
