Verse:
            Am                                        C               
He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down.
Em                                 Am
I'm gonna put it six feet underground.
Am                                               C  
He said I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall.
Em                                            Am
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls.
Am                                          C  
Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire.
Em                                           Am
Stand here until I fill all your hearts desires.
Am                                           C  
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn.
Em                                     Am
And do back the things it did to you in return.
 

 F   
Huhuuuuuuh Huhuuuuuuuuuuuuh

Pre-Chorus:
      Am                                    C  
He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war.
Em                                          Am
If you can tell me something worth fighting for.
Am                                          C  
Oh and I'm goina buy this place is what I said.
Em                                      Am
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head.

Chorus:
F                                              D                     
Honey, all the movements you're starting to make.
D                                 F   
See me crumble and fall on my face.
F                                      D
And I know the mistakes that I have made. 
D       Bb                        F   
See it all disappear without trace.
F                                 D
And they call us, they beckon you on.
D          Bb                           Am  C    Em  Am   Am  C    Em  Am
The said start as you mean to go on. Start as you mean to go on

      Am                                       C               
You said I'm goina buy this place and see it go.
Em                                              Am   
Stand here beside me, baby watch the orange glow.


Am                                    C  
Some will laugh, some just sit and cry.
Em                                           Am
But you just sit down there and you wonder why.

Pre-Chorus:
Am                                    C  
So I'm goina buy a gun and start a war.  
Em                                          Am
If you can tell me something worth fighting for.
Am                                          C  
And I'm goina buy this place is what I said.
Em                                      Am
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head, oh to the head.

Chorus:

See me crumble and fall on my face.
F                                      D
And I know the mistakes that I have made.

See it all disappear without trace.
F                                 D
And they call us, they beckon you on.
D           Bb                       Am  C    Em  Am

Am  C    Em  Am
 Need to go on.


Am
So meet me by the Bridge
C       
Oh meet me by the lane
Em
When am I going to see
Am
That pretty face again


Am
Meet me on the road
C  
Meet me where I said
Em
Blame it all upon
Am
a rush of blood to the head
