intro: Em Am7 B (x2)

the blackest storm i ever saw

       Am7          B
was coming in from omaha

Em                                  Am7            B
and the latest news from tokyo was a lot of ugly numbers

i was checkin' pay phones for forgotten coins

            Am7           B
as the clouds came over west des moines

got into the house

got the curtains drawn

Am7                            B
got into the the shower with all my clothes on

Em                               Am7  B
hey! hey! let the water come down!

Em                               Am   Bm
hey! hey! let the water come down!

by noon it was clear that winter'd come
and i just the the water run
and i got sop suds in my eyes
and it stung like iodine
the phone started ringing like a fire alarm
and the voice on the machine was brutally calm
new numbers coming down the wire
got into the shower with my eyes on fire
hey! hey! let it fall on me,
let it all come down relentlessly!
you swore that you would stick around
when days like this started coming down!
break out the crystal!
Em                     Am7   B
get out the good champagne!
               Em     Am7     B
we're going down              in flames.

Em Am7 B until the end
