VERSE 1

A chordA C#m chordC#m D chordD A chordA
I broke free on a Saturday morning I put the pedal too the floor
A chordA C#m chordC#m D chordD A chordA
Headed north on Mills Avenue and listened to the engine roar

A chordA C#m chordC#m
My broken house behind me and good things ahead
D chordD A chordA
a girl named Cathy wants a little of my time

A chordA C#m chordC#m
Six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking
D chordD A chordA
aha listen to the engine whine


CHORUS
A chordA C#m chordC#m D chordD A chordA
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me
A chordA C#m chordC#m D chordD A chordA
I am going to make it though this year if it kills me

VERSE 2

I played video games in a drunken haze
I was seventeen years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue

And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
trading swigs from a bottle all bitter and clean
locking eyes holding hands
twin high maintenance machines

CHORUS

BRIDGE
F#m chordF#m A chordA
I drove home in the California dusk
F#m chordF#m A chordA
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
F#m chordF#m A chordA
Pictured the look on my stepfather's face
D chordD E chordE
ready for the bad things to come

VERSE 3
I down shifted as I pulled into the driveway
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear
The scene ends badly as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear
There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year

CHORUS
