Intro 

D 

verse 1 
D             
Hundreds of stories 
G 
Before I showed up 
D 
They'd tell them to me 
G 
And pull photos up 
Em 
They're all connected 
D  
Like a pair of handcuffs 
G 
No one seemed affected 
A 
That everyone is fucked 
D 
But there was a softness 
G 
Some kind of understanding 
D   
Those 2am decisions 
G 
Always shaky landings 
Em 
And no one ever knew 
D   
What could be demanded 
G 
Maybe it's the cards 
A 
The cards that she was handed 


G D A You called me up from a pay phone Bm A I said 'Hang tight, I can drive you home' G D A I pulled on up and with a southern accent Bm A I offered you my dad's leather jacket
verse 2 D I met her at a party G She'd come straight from work D Complained that the regulars G Were all a bunch of jerks Em She always looked tired D But she dazzled as a drunk G She even pulled off A That stupid hair cut D She said, 'I don't need a sponsor G Or the best lover D Just a man that sees me G As some fixer-upper Em The last few years D I've been running for cover G Trying to sleep A So I can visit my mother'
G D A You called me up from a pay phone Bm A I said 'Hang tight, I can drive you home' G D A I pulled on up and with a southern accent Bm A I offered you my dad's leather jacket
G D A When times were tough in the worst years Bm A We never knew how to interfere G D A And now you're back and just unpacking Bm A Those bruised up takers you keep attracting
Bridge Em In September D/F# When it goes off G Like some god damn A Alarm clock Em And he hits her D/F# Like a third shot G Conversations A She just stares off Em There's no longer D/F# A voice calling G When she goes out A Saying, 'I'll be up waiting for you' G D A Bm - A - G Ooh, Ooh, Ooh-Ooh-Ooh x2
G D A You called me up from a pay phone Bm A I said 'Hang tight, I can drive you home' G D A I pulled on up and with a southern accent Bm A I offered you my dad's leather jacket
G D A When times were tough in the worst years Bm A We never knew how to interfere G D A And now you're back and just unpacking Bm A Those bruised up takers you keep attracting
Outro G D A You call me up from a pay phone Bm A You call me up from a pay phone (x2) And I said, 'Who the fuck uses a pay phone?'
