Verse 1

CMy life reads like the classifieds. Pages of what's for sale; whats on the auction block. FAttention bidders! Its line 45. He's got a decent voice, he's got that crooked smile. CHold on, you havent heard the best yet. He writes good storylines, he's got those honest eyes. FSo take him home for just $9.95. He'll sing the songs you like, he'll keep you warm at night...

Verse 2

palm mute power chords, listen carefully for transition points): C5I'm not the type to forget about nights F5like this, where every single move that I make A5is documented and scored for style points. G5The once ambitious one now holds the smoking gun. CAnd if I die in my sleep, Csus4are you still willing to be Ceverything you prCsus4omised you would be?

Chorus

CBack down, cash out, that's the city for you. CBreak down and back out, and get what's coming to you. AmWhen you said you were falling apart AmI thought you meant that you were falling apart.

Bridge

Will you be the F5first one to tell the G5neighborhood paper and all my A5family and friends that stillC5 care? F5Did you buy what I soldG5 and did you feel what I tolG5d you? I hope you stilC5l do. Will you F5promise yourself, that this isn't all we've got?

Chorus

go through twice) CBack down, cash out, that's the city for you. CBreak down and back out, and get what's coming to you. AmWhen you said you were falling apart AmI thought you meant that you were falling apart. Amoh oh oh
