A  A  A  G


Verse 1:
A                             G
Some folks look for trouble,
A                      G
Some look for belief
A                          G
Baby, you look for Jesus
A                   G
I look for relief
D             C        G
Used to talk about the weather,
D              C         G
Used to say it all looks fine
D            C      G
Now we never hang together,
D                C     G
Now you're never on my mind

A   A   A   G
No!

Verse 2:
Spinning around in circles,
Cut it up in squares
Ask me if I love you baby,
Ask me if I care
You think it's a joke or something
I think that it's all a drag
You say it's in the pocket
Can't be let out of the bag

Chorus:
G  F     G          F               G
I     go north, the sun it hurts my eyes
    F              G             F                 G
But I don't really care, they're all drowning down here
   F           G
So I will disappear

Verse 3:
Trials and tribulations
Face us every day
Baby, you used to talk too much,
Now you don't have much to say
Throw it out and say it's fortune
Throw it out and say it's luck
Tell me that it's all intention,
Ask me if I give a fuck
I don't

Verse 4:
You think that I'm stupid,
I think that I'm cool
Haul you back to Texas baby,
Send you back to school
Last thing that I need is a mustang,
Last thing that I need is a tan
I'm gonna get myself up north,
Find out who the hell I am

Chorus:
G  F     G          F               G
I     go north, the sun it hurts my eyes
    F              G             F                 G
But I don't really care, they're all drowning down here
   F           G     F           E
So I will disappear, I will disappear
F              E      F                 E
Find my way up north, find out what I'm worth
F            E      F              E
Try and understand, just how big I am

Jam over F > E

Verse 5:
Some say I am stupid baby,
I think that I'm cool
Haul you back to Guadalajara,
You can send me back to school
Last thing that I need is a mustang,
Last thing that I need is a tan
I'm gonna get myself up north,
Find out who the hell I am

Chorus:
G  F     G          F               G
I     go north, the sun it hurts my eyes
    F              G             F                 G
But I don't really care, they're all drowning down here
   F           G     F           E
So I will disappear, I will disappear
