You Got To Me
Intro: G C G C G C To celebrate undying faith, we're gathered here like drifted wrecks G D for a late September wedding, October breathing down our necks. G C I knew this town in another time. I knew this town a younger man G D with the world in my hip pocket a subway token in my hand. G C G C Mmm you got to me. G C And they got candlelight and a reggae band, champagne by the bucket load G D Limos lined up down the curb to take us where we need to go. G C And I need to go somewhere I've been to find a place I lost the trail G D Way back then so long ago I don't suppose you even know G You got to me. C G C Brought all this empty down on top of me. G C G C You got to me. G C We danced between the snowflakes falling, tripping on the cobblestones G D And the trolley tracks, we had it all then, Christmas break your roommates gone G C We stoked the fire and let it burn till the embers glowed in the morning light G D Trust in the tangle of skin on skins I've not known quite that feeling since G You got to me. C G Brought all this empty down on top of me. C G C D G C G C I didn't know but we were not to be, but I know a thing or two now. G C The wedding party's raging yet, how the old and desperate misbehave G D Limo smells like cocaine sweat, cheap cologne and aftershave G C It's gotta be one of these row house doors I knew the number long ago G D I step out on the curb. Tell the driver just go on and go. G You got to me. C G Brought all this empty down on top of me. C G C D G C I didn't know but we were not to be, but I know a thing or two now. Interlude: G C G C G C G C The paper boy wants a smoke, leans his bike against a tree G D He's tired and cold and broke and he don't what to make of me G C Standing here in my three piece suit, standing here just like I am G D With my vest unbuttoned and my neck tie loose, impervious to all abuse G You got to me. C G Brought all this empty down on top of me. C G C D G Off on a thousand dollar odyssey, and I know a thing or two now. C D G Yeah I know a thing or two now. C D G C D G Yeah I know a thing or two now.
