The Wonder Years - Passing Through A Screen Door Chords
0Cigarette smoke dances back in the window
A2 C#m3 B4
1And I can see the haze on the dome light.
2I`m conjuring ghosts on a forty-hour ride home
A7 C#m8 B9
3And they keep asking me what I`m doing with my life,
A10 B11 C#m12
4While my cousins go to bed with their wives.
A13 B14 F#m15
5I'm feeling like I've fallen behind.
8Well the highway won.
9I`m listening to traffic reports,
A18 C#m19 B20
10One on one, coming quietly undone.
11I was born to run away from anything good
12An escape artist`s son
13With sun-drenched pavement in my blood.
A26 B27 C#m28
14The first thing that I do when I walk in
A29 B30 F#m31
15Is plan a way out for when xxxx gets bad
C#m32 B33 A34 E35 C#m36
18And I`ve been looking for tears in the screen door.
19-tears in the screen door-
C#m39 B40 A41 E42 C#m43
20I`ve been waiting for another disaster.
Interlude: E46 G#m47 A48 C#m49 B50
24I`m terrified like a kid in the sixties,
A53 C#m54 B55
25Staring at the sky waiting for the bomb to fall.
26It`s all a lie, what they say about stability.
27It scares me sometimes,
C#m59 B60 F#m61
28The emptiness I see in my eyes.
G#m62 A63 B64
31All the kid`s names I’ve ever liked are tied to tragedy
F#m65 G#m66 A67 B68
32And I don’t want my children growing up to be anything like me.
C#m69 B70 A71 E72 C#m73
35And I`ve been looking for tears in the screen door.
36-tears in the screen door-
C#m76 B77 A78 E79 C#m80
37I`ve been waiting for another disaster.
C#m83 A84 B85
39But I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
C#m86 A87 E88
40I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
Interlude: A89 E90 B91
43I keep a flashlight
A93 E94 B95
44And a small knife in the corner of my bed stand.
45I keep a flashlight and the train times,
46But you wouldn’t understand.
47How could you understand?
50Jesus Christ. I`m twentysix.
51All the people I graduated with
52All have kids, all have wives,
53All have people who care if they come home at night.
54Jesus Christ, did I xxxx up?
C#m110 B111 A112 E113 C#m114
57And I`ve been looking for tears in the screen door.
58-tears in the screen door-
C#m117 B118 A119 E120 C#m121
59I`ve been waiting for another disaster.
C#m124 A125 B126
61But I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
C#m127 A128 B129
62I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
C#m130 B131 E132
63I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
