Intro: D D  Am7 Am7  C C  G G



Verse 1:

D D Am7 Am7
Don't get mad if I'm laughing

C C G G
Blame the caffeine for all the 5 am phone calls

D D Am7 Am7
I haven't slept a single night in over a month

C C G G
And not even once did you start to make sense to me

D D
Well maybe I'm a little bit slow, or just consistently

Am7 Am7
inconsistent

C C G G
She said, "Unpredictability's my responsibility, baby."




Bridge:

Em Em Bm Bm
But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out

just like they hung out before

C C
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say

D D
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway




Chorus:


G G D D F F
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

C C
middle of nowhere

G G D D F F
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

C C
middle of nowhere




Verse 2:

D D Am7 Am7
They chewed me up and then they spit me out

C C G G
And I'm not supposed to let it bother me

D D Am7 Am7
But maybe I'm a little bit weak - I let my frailty take the wheel

C C
She said, "Maybe there's a bit of me waiting for a bit of you,

G G
baby."




Bridge:

Em Em Bm Bm
But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out

just like they hung out before

C C
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say

D D
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway





Chorus:


G G D D F F
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

C C
middle of nowhere

G G D D F F
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

C C
middle of nowhere



(At this point, there is a crazy guitar solo, in which when trying on my uke, I nearly smashed it against the wall in great frustration. I will not post said solo to save poor, innocent ukuleles around the world.)



Bridge:

Em Em Bm Bm
But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out

just like they hung out before

C C
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say

That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway




Chorus:


G G D D F F
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

middle of nowhere

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the

Sounds good, I would have loved that solo tabbed out though but I guess it's impossible for now :P

About this song

Dustin Hawthorne, bassist of Hot Hot Heat, has been quoted saying, ""I hate ('Middle of Nowhere') and I wish it was never written. I can't deny that it definitely did something good for our career, for sure. But, to me, it's adult contemporary. And it's kind of funny to me, because I grew up playing punk and here I am playing this jackass-sounding song."
