-part I - The Death of St Jimmy- 

A E D A 
A E D A 
 

A  E        D        A 
My heart is beating from me 
A    E         D   A 
I am standing all alone 
A           D  A 
Please call me only 
A  E       D      A 
If you are coming home 
E             A 
Waste another year flies by 
E               A 
Wait a night or two 
D          A  D   A  E 
You taught me how to live 


A D E   A D A D E 
A D E   A D A D E 
 

       A        D  E 
In the streets of shame, 
             A         D       A  D  E 
Where you've lost your dreams in the rain, 
            A    D E 
There's no sign of hope, 
              D                 A      E 
The stems and seeds of the last of the dope, 
         A      D E 
There's a glow of light, 
         A           D     A  D   E 
The St. Jimmy is the spark in the night, 
         A    D    E 
Bearing gifts and trust, 
            D       A      E 
The fixture in the city of lust 


         Gbm   E    A 
What the hells your name, 
            Gbm              E        A   
What's your pleasure and what's your pain? 
       Gbm   E    A 
Do you dream too much? 
       D                    A    E 
Do you think what you need is a crutch? 
 
 
A D E  A D A D E 
 

        A     D E               A          D  A D E 
In the crowd of pain, St. Jimmy comes without any shame, 
                A      
He says "We're xxxxed up", 
    D             E 
But we're not the same, 
            D                        E 
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame 
      Gbm  E A 
Jimmy died today 
            Gbm          E      A 
He blew his brains out into the bay, 
       Gbm    E A          D              E 
In the state of mind in my own private suicide 
 


-part II - East 12th Street- 
 
A   D A G A 
A   D A G A 
A   D A G A 
A   D A G A 
 

     D A G  A 
Well nobody cares, 
     D A G  A 
And nobody cares, 
      D A G  A       D A G  A 
Does anyone care if nobody cares? 
      D A G  A 
Well nobody cares, 
     D A D  A 
And nobody cares, 
      D A G  A       D A G  A 
Does anyone care if nobody cares? 
 
 
D                    G    D 
Jesus is filling out paperwork now, 
G         D     A       D 
At the facility on east 12th Street, 
D                  G   D 
He's not listening to a word now, 
G           D   
He's in his own world, 
    A       D 
And he's daydreaming 
                    G          D 
He'd rather be doing something else now, 
     D             G                A    D 
Like cigarettes and coffee with the underbelly, 
                            G      D 
His life's on the line with anxiety now, 
    D        G 
And she had enough, 
    A        D 
And he's had plenty 

D G D A D 
 
D            G   D   A D

D           G   D   A D

D G D A D 
 
D            G   D   A D 
Somebody get me out of here, 

D G D A D 
 
D               G      D   A D 
Get me the xxxx right out of here 
 

C 
So far away, 
A 
I don't want to stay, 
C                       A 
Get me outta here right now, 
C 
I just want to be free, 
A 
Is there a possibility? 
C                        A 
Get me out of here right now, 
 

C A

C A

C A

D C G A 
 

      D             G     A  D

-part III - Nobody Likes You- 
 
D       A           G               A 
I fell asleep while watching Spike TV, 
      D           A 
After 10 cups of coffee, 
           G         A 
And you're still not here, 
D             A 
Dreaming of a song, 
     G              A 
When something went wrong, 
        D           A 
And you can't tell anyone, 
     G        A 
'Cos no one's here 


Bm            A 
Left me here alone, 
       G                  D 
When I should have stayed home, 
      Bm          A 
After 10 cups of coffee, 
    D 
I'm thinking, 
 

D      A 
Nobody likes you, 
G        A 
Everyone left you, 
        D          A 
They're all out without you, 
G      A 
Havin' fun, 
 

D         A    
Everyone left you, 
G      A   
Nobody likes you, 
        D           A 
They're all out without you, 
G      A 
Havin' fun, 
 
             D 
Where'd you go? 
 


-part IV - Rock and Roll Girlfriend- 
 
D E 
 
A 
I got a rock and roll band, 
D 
I got a rock and roll life, 
A 
I got a rock and roll girlfriend, 
E 
And another ex-wife 
 

A 
I got a rock and roll house, 
D 
I got a rock and roll car, 
A 
I play the xxxx out of the drums, 
E 
And I can play the guitar 
 

A 
I got a kid in New York, 
D 
I got a kid in the Bay, 
A 
I haven't drank or smoked nothin', 
   E 
In over 22 days, 
 

       G      A 
So get off of my case, 
    G      A 
Get off of my case, 
G     A   D ... 
Off of my case 
 


-part V - We're Coming Home Again- 
 

... Bm G-A  
  D Bm G-A 
  D Bm G-A 
  D Bm G-A 
 
  
Here they come marching down the street, 
Like a desperation murmur of a heart beat, 
Coming back from the edge of town, 
Underneath their feet 
 
G A 
 
The time has come and it's going nowhere, 
Nobody ever said that life was fair now, 
Go-carts and guns are treasures they will bear, 
In the summer heat 
 
D A 
 
G            A                   G 
The world is spinning around and around, 
           A 
Out of control again, 
 
D A 
 
G          A        Bm               E 
From the 7-11 to the fear of breaking down, 
   D        G     A        
So send my love a letterbomb, 
  D     G       A 
To visit me in hell, 
G         A    G A 
We're the ones going 

D   A 

D 
Home. 
             A 
We're coming home again 
D 
Home. 
             A 
We're coming home again 

 
G 
I started xxxxin' running, 
                D 
As soon as my feet touch ground, 
G 
We're back in the barrio, 
       A                        G      A 
But to you and me, that's Jingletown. That's 
D 
Home. 

             A 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A          G 
We're coming home again, 

D 
Home. 
             A          G 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A          G 
We're coming home again, 
D 
Home. 
             A          G 
We're coming home again, 


D 
Nobody likes you, 
Everyone left you, 
They're all out without you, 
Havin' fun
