Codeine

Jason Isbel

    G          D                 Em7   Cadd9
If there's one thing I can't stand
G         D                  Em7       Cadd9
it's this bar and this cover band
G         D                      Em7                       Cadd9
trying to fake their way through 'Castles Made of Sand.'
G      D                 Em7       Cadd9
That's one thing I can't stand.

G          D                 Em7       Cadd9
If there's one thing I can't take
G          D                 Em7       Cadd9
it's the sound that a woman makes
G          D                 Em7                     Cadd9
about five seconds after her heart begins to break.
G      D                 Em7       Cadd9
That's one thing I can't take.


BRIDGE
Bm                                Cadd9
She should be home by now but she ain't.
Bm                            Cadd9
I should've gone by now but I cain't.


CHORUS
          G                     D                Em7         Cadd9
One of my friends has taken her in and given her Codeine.
          G                     D                Em7         Cadd9
One of my friends has taken her in and given her Codeine.


VERSE
G    D               Em7       Cadd9
Them eyes was big as stars
G      D                  Em7       Cadd9
when I saw you behind the bar.
G                  D              Em7                    Cadd9
I guess that's the way to keep on smilin' where you are.
G             D               Em7       Cadd9
But girl them eyes was big as stars.

G         D                     Em7       Cadd9
It sounds funny when you say my name.
G                D                    Em7       Cadd9
It's like you're chewing on a foreign thing
G             D                  Em7              Cadd9
and you won't get to sleep 'till dawn if it don't rain.
G            D                     Em7       Cadd9
It sounds so funny when you say my name.


BRIDGE
Bm                                   Cadd9
You oughta come home tonight but you won't.
Bm                                 Cadd9
I wish we knew how to fight but we don't.


CHORUS 2
            G                     D                Em7         Cadd9
One of your friends has taken you in and given you Codeine.
            G                     D                Em7         Cadd9
One of your friends has taken you in and given you Codeine.


VERSE
G           D          Em7       Cadd9
Darlin' I'm not one to judge
G        D                          Em7     Cadd9
but if I was then I'd say you don't look so good.
G      D             Em7       Cadd9
Got no answers of my own
G            D                      Em7            Cadd9
but with you gone, this place looks bigger than it should.

G          D                 Em7       Cadd9
If there's two things that I hate
G              D                  Em7       Cadd9
it's having to cook and trying to date.
G       D                   Em7                  Cadd9
Busting ass all day to play 'hurry up and wait.'
G        D                 Em7       Cadd9
That's a few things that I hate.


BRIDGE
Bm                     Cadd9
If I call when I ain't drunk
Bm                        Cadd9
This old boat'll still be sunk


CHORUS 3

'cause one of my friends has taken her in and given her Codeine.
          G                     D                Em7        Cadd9
One of my friends has taken her in and given her Codeine.
