Releasing the third finger will generate the note back on the 7th fret, which is still held down by the first finger! ( This is for those of you who are unfamiliar with some guitar techniques - hope you can visualize that one, if you're not confused with my description :/ ) Chorus: E (10th) C G e|------------------------------------------------------------------| B|------------------------------------------------------------------| G|---9----\-----5-------4-------------------------------------------| D|---9----\-----5-------5-------------------------------------------| A|---7----\-----3-------5-------------------------------------------| E|----------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------| ** The above is a simpler way to play the chorus.

Oh what a backwards scheme, Cuz here things go from grey To grey and back to grey again And they get green and go to grey And back to grey again" So he said," Head south!" [x12] Struck by being ashamed of your old space Just wanting that mean heat You bleached your hair And you pawned your skis And then you sold out for the Shape of the palm tree scene Surrounded, cut off jeans And cut off jeans are what you mean When you say, "Head south!" [x12]
