Verse 2

Same chords) Second night at the Warehouse, and my mock turtleneck just reeks. Woah-oh, woah-oh From the liquor room up to the changeroom To the doom and gloom of the hotel room, I wish this seaside beerhall would sink into the bay.

Chorus

Bridge

this part doesn't use much guitar-- mostly bass, but this is how I emulate it) Maybe IBm caught you at a bad time, (Cmwat'up) Maybe I should Bmcall you back nextCm week, (wat'up) maybe Bmhalf the fault is mine that (wat'up) the Cmsun didn't shine on BmBarrington Street.

Verse 3

back to same progression) It's three o'clock in the morning, and I'm hungry so let's eat. Woah-oh, woah-oh. Climb down three flights to the streetlights and the barfights, we're just taking in the sights. I hope tomorrow that I wake up in my own bed.

Bo Dm

Chorus

End

What a good place to Abe, Don't bCmelieve them, 'Cause they sDpeak a different language, and it's neDmver been happy for me. (Continue the A Cm D Dm progression It's happy hour again Woah-oh, woah-oh - It's happy hour again Woah-oh, woah-oh - Hello city, hey Dm---- A Woah-oh, woah-oh - Hello city - hey Drag out Dm on last Hello City, end on A with 'hey'
