Verse 1:
Bbm                                Gb
Broadway is black like a sinkhole, everyone raced to the suburbs.
    Db                                         F7
And I'm on the rooftop with curious strangers, this is the oddest of summers.
Bbm
Maybe I'll medicate, maybe inebriate.
Gb
Strange situations, I get anxious.
Db
Maybe I'll smile a bit, maybe the opposite.
F7
But pray that they don't call me thankless.

Pre-Chorus:
Ebm          F7               Bbm    Gb   Gb        Ebm      Bbm    F7
My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest, cut me a silk tie tourniquet.

Chorus:
           Bbm                    Gb
This is my roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.
F7
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
Bbm                       Gb
My roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.
F7                                              Bbm
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.

Verse 2:
Bbm                             Gb
Oscars and Emmy's and Grammy's, everyone here is a trophy.
    Db                                             F7
And I'm sipping bourbon, the future uncertain, the past on the pavement below me.
Bbm                                        Gb
Maybe I'll elevate, maybe I'm second rate, so unaware of my status.
Db
Maybe I'm overjoyed, maybe I'm paranoid.
F7
Designer me up in straight jackets.

Pre-Chorus:
Ebm          F7               Bbm    Gb   Gb        Ebm      Bbm    F7
My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest, cut me a silk tie tourniquet.

Chorus:
           Bbm                    Gb
This is my roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.
F7
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
Bbm                       Gb
My roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.
F7
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.

Bridge:
Gb                  Ab                         F7
Hallucinations only mean that your brain is on fire.
                                 Bbm                   Fm                    Gb
But it's Lord of the Flies in my mind tonight, I don't know if I will survive.
Gb                            Ab                              F7
Lighters up if you're feelin' me, fade to black if you're not mine.
                   F7                     F7
Cause I just need a sign, or a signal inside

Chorus:
             Bbm                    Gb
This is my roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me a blunt 'cause I wanna go home.
F7
Roll me a, roll me a blunt.
            Bbm                      Gb
This is my roaring, roaring 20's, I don't even know me.
Db
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home.
F7
Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I want, I wanna go home.

Bbm   Gb
oh oh oh oh,
Db    F7 
oh oh oh oh.

I wanna go home.
