Em7 Em7  A7 A7          C C                G G           Em7 Em7    A7 A7        C C           G G
It was one hundred degrees as we sat beneath a willow tree,
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
Whose tears didn't care, they just hung in the air, and refused to fall, to fall.
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
And I knew I'd made horrible call. And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall,
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
And there was no doubt about which side I was on. Hmmm.....

Em Em Em Em(maj7) Em7 Em7 B7 B7
'Cause I built you a home in my heart
Em Em Em Em(maj7) Em7 Em7 A7 A7
with rotten wood--it decayed from the start

Chorus:
C C G G D D
'Cause you can't find nothing at all,
C C G G D D
If there was nothing there all along.
C C G G D D
No you can't find nothing at all,
C C G G D D
If there was nothing there all along.

Main Riff

Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
I braved treacherous streets, and kids strung out on homemade speed
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep at all, woo-hoo, woo-hoo
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
'Cause at night the sun in retreat made the skyline look like crooked teeth,
Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G Em7 Em7 A7 A7 C C G G
In the mouth of a man who was devouring us both

Em Em Em Em(maj7) Em7 Em7 B7 B7
You're so cute when you're slurring your speech,
Em Em Em Em(maj7) A7 A7 (2)
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave.


A7 A7 (hold 2) B7 B7 (hold 2)
I'm a war, of head versus heart,
Em7 Em7 (hold 2) A7 A7 (hold 2)
It's always this way.
A7 A7 (hold 2) B7 B7 (hold 2)
My head is weak, my heart always speaks,
Em7 Em7 (hold 2) A7 A7 (2)
Before I know what it will say.

Instrumental:

Chorus:
C C G G D D
And you can't find nothing at all,
C C G G D D
If there was nothing there all along.
C C G G D D
No you can't find nothing at all,
C C G G D D (2)
If there was nothing there all along.
C C G G D D
No, you can't find nothing at all,
C C G G D D
If there was nothing there all along.
C C G G D D
There were churches, theme parks, and malls,
C C G G D D (hold)
There was nothing there all along

In the places where it says Em(maj7), in the bridges, it should actually be Em6: finger 2nd fret on A-string and 1st fret on C-string. Then the progression for, as an example, the line "You're so cute when you're slurring your speech" would be Em - Em6 - Em7 - [B7], which works out really nicely, as you can just slide your top finger from the first fret to the second when you go from Em6 to Em7, since they're practically the same chord.

As far as I can tell though, the rest of the chords look great. Really nice job. :)

Yea I went back to that and E major Seventh also doesnt sound right. I'm not sure off the top of my head what chord it is, but just move your finger to the second fret on the c string for that chord, sounds fine.
