    C  G      C                               G  C
And so, Annie waits, Annie waits, Annie waits,
      Am   G      D
For a call from a friend.
    C     G        C                               G  C
The same, it's the same, why's it always the same?

Annie waits for the last...time.

C  G, C (x2)

Verse 2:

    C      G     C                               G  C
The clock, never stops, never stops, never waits.
              Am  G             D        F
She's growing old, it's getting late and so.
       G                         Am
He for-got, he forgot, but maybe not.
D                        F
 Maybe he's been serious-ly hurt?
G              C      G, C
 Would that be worse?

Bridge 1:

Gm          Bb              F                C             Gm
 Headlights crest the hill, shadows pass her by and out of sight.
Bb       F  C
 Whoo-oo.
Gm     Bb              F             C              Gm   Bb
 Annie sees in dreams, friday bingo, pigeons in the park.

Chorus 1:

C      G      F       C         G, C
 Annie waits, for the last time.
C         G     F      C
 Just the same, as the last time.

Middle 8:

      Am        F            C              G       Am    F  C  G
Annie says; you see? This is why I'd rather be... a-lone.

Verse 3:


    C  G      C                               G  C
And so, Annie waits, Annie waits, Annie waits,
      Am   G      D
For a call from a friend.
    C     G        C                               G  C
The same, it's the same, why's it always the same?
      Am     G      C
Annie waits, as the last...

Bridge 2:

Gm          Bb              F                C             Gm
 Headlights crest the hill, shadows pass her by and out of sight.
Bb        F  C
 Whoo-oo.
Gm      Bb          F                   C                  Gm  Bb
 Annie, I could be, if we're both still lonely, when we're old.

Chorus 2:

C      G      F       C         G, C
 Annie waits, for the last time.
C         G     F      C        G, C
 Just the same, as the last time.
C      G      F       C         G, C
 Annie waits, for the last time.
C         G     F      C
 Just the same, as the last time.

Coda:

      Am      G
Annie waits...
(n.C)        C
 But not for me.

D  D/C	D/B  D/Bb (x2)

Verse 1:

D     D/C	          D/B            D/Bb
 Sara spelled without an 'h' was getting bored,
D     D/C             D/B             D/Bb
 On a Peavey amp from nineteen eighty four.
Em                       A
 While Zak without a 'c' tried out some new guitars,
Em		       A
 Playing Sara with no 'h's favorite song.

Chorus 1:

      D           D/B         A
La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.
      D           D/B         A
La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.
Em       A
 Zak and Sara.

Interlude:

Verse 2:

D      D/C	       D/B                   D/Bb
 Often Sara would have spells where she lost time,
D            D/C               D/B            D/Bb
 She saw the future, she heard voices from in-side.
Em                            A
 The kind of voices she would soon learn to deny,
Em                            A
 Because at home they got her smacked.

Chorus 2:

      D           D/B         A
La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.
      D           D/B         A
La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.
Em       A
 Zak and Sara.

         Zak and Sara.

Break:

               Bm        E
Zak called his Dad about lay away plans,
     A        D
Sara told the friendly salesman,
G		             E
 That you'll all die in your cars.
		      A
And why's it gotta be dark?
               Adim
And you're all workin' in a submarine.

Interlude:

D  D/C	D/B  D/Bb (x2)

Verse 3:

D            D/C              D/B          D/Bb
 She saw the light, she saw a pale English face,
D                D/C              D/B
 Some strange ma-chines repeating beats,
             D/Bb
And thumping bass.
Em                              A
 Pitchers of pills that put you in a loving trance,
Em                         A
 That make it possible for all white boys to dance.
Em                                       A
 And when Zak finished Sara's song, Sara clapped.

Chorus 3:

      D           D/B         A
La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.

La la laaa, la la laaa, la la laaa.

 Zak and Sara.

3...STILL FIGHTING IT... by Ben Folds
------------------------.............

*from 'Rockin' The Suburbs' (2001)*


Verse 1:

             C           Fmaj7
Good morning son, I am a bird,
          C               Fmaj7
Wearing a brown polyester shirt.
           C                Fmaj7
You want a Coke? Maybe some fries?
               C                 G
The roast beef combo's only $9.9-5,
         C                       Fmaj7
But it's okay; you don't have to pay,
                 C       G
I've got all the change.

Chorus 1:

          F        C             G                 F
Everybody knows it hurts to grow up, but everybody does.
        C           G
It's so weird to be back here,
                F         C
Let me tell you what; the years go on, and,
G                         F
 We're still fighting it, we're still fighting it.
    C         Fmaj7     C       Fmaj7
And you're so much like me; I'm sorry.

Verse 2:

             C           Fmaj7
Good morning son; twenty years from now,
            C                            Fmaj7
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers.
          C                 Fmaj7
And I can tell you about to-day,
          C                            G
And how I picked you up and everything changed.
       C                    Fmaj7
It was pain, sunny days and rain,
                      C    G
I knew you'd feel the same things.

Chorus 2:

          F        C             G                 F
Everybody knows it hurts to grow up, but everybody does.
        C           G
It's so weird to be back here,
                F         C
Let me tell you what; the years go on, and,
G                         F
 We're still fighting it, we're still fighting it.
       C       Fmaj7        C          Fmaj7  Fm
You'll try and try, and one day you'll fly,
  C        Fmaj7
A-way from me.

Good morning son, I am a bird,
C                   Fmaj7
 (Good morning son).

       C                    Fmaj7
It was pain, sunny days and rain,

I knew you'd feel the same things.

Chorus 3:

          F        C             G                 F

Let me tell you what; the years go on, and,

 We're still fighting it, we're still fighting it.

          F                       A                  Bb         C

 Will con-sider you gone.

Verse 2:

  F                  A                   Bb    C
I know that you went straight to someone else,
        F                       A               Bb    C
While I worked through all this shit here by my-self.
      F                     A                 Bb   C
And I think that you should spend some time a-lone.

          Dm                G          Bb           C#maj7

The days go on, the lights go off and on,

And nothing really matters when you're gone.
       F                   A          Bb   C
If you think that you feel nothing at all,

If you don't, then you don't.

If you won't, then you won't.

And I... will,

There's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall.

'Cos to-day's just a day like the day that he started.

 No-one is left here that knows his first name,

And life barrels on like a runaway train,
          Am                            F
Where the passengers change, they don't change anything,

Verse 1:

D               D/C
 Her window was hung like a painting,
    D/B                      Bbmaj7
She worried it might come to life.
D               A
 She stared for hours.

D                   D/C
 So obsessed was I, and self-absorbed that I,
D/B                  Bbmaj7  D    A
 Didn't see that she was,     cry-ing.

Chorus 1:

          Gm             C
There was always someone carrying,
          Am             Dm7

 Always someone's carrying Cathy.

Interlude:

D  G, D  G, C  F, C (x2)

Verse 2:

D                          D/C
 There were times when I'd find myself saying that;
D/B                  Bbmaj7
 "Friends, you don't understand",
          D                    A
And she's different, when it's just me and her.

      D                     D/C
And I closed the door and I tried to hang on,
        D/B           Bbmaj7      D            A
And she sank into the dark. I was over my head.

There was always someone carrying,
          Am             Dm7

Bridge 1:

            Bbmaj7                          D
We gave you everything; you could have been anything.
            Bbmaj7                          D
We gave you everything; you could have done anything.

         Bbmaj7                     Dm6 D      Dm6   D
But to i-magine a fall, with no one at  all to catch you.

Chorus 3:

                    Am        Dm7
There'd always been someone...

Gm  C  D

Gm                           C
 Then one night, she climbed into the picture frame.
Am                 Dm7      Gm  C   D     G  D
 Out in the frozen air, and out, of sight.

Verse 3:

D                      D/C 
 Woke up sad from this dream I've been having,
    D/B                   Bbmaj7  D  A
The last couple nights or so.

         D                          D/C
With her father and brothers, we're all at the funeral,
D/B                         Bbmaj7
 Carrying a box through the rain.
     D                       A
Then somebody says that it's always been this way.

Chorus 4:

          Gm             C
There was always someone carrying,
          Am             Dm7

 When people break in the Mc-Donald's line.
C                         D
 Mom and dad, you made me so uptight;
F                  C
 Gonna cuss on the mic tonight.

Bridge 1:

D                     F
 Dunno how much I can take,
C                              D     (n.C)
 Girl, give me something I can break.

Chorus 2:

                D                  F          C
I'm rocking the suburbs, just like Quiet Riot did,
                D                    F               C
I'm rocking the suburbs, except that they were talen-ted,
   	        D                 F                    C
I'm rocking the suburbs; take the cheques and face the facts,
              D                           F
That some pro-ducer with computers, fixes all my shitty tracks.

I can feel that somethings not right,
      C              F                C        F
I can feel someone's blasting me with hate and bass,
        C                 F
Sending dirty thoughts my way.
        C                       F
'Cos my great-great-great-great-grand dad,
              C                       F           C      F

               C    F                C   F               C    F
It wasn't my i-dea,   it wasn't my i-dea,  never was my idea.

I'm rocking the suburbs, except that he was talen-ted.

D        A        D                G
 I don't get many things right the first time,
   D         Bm          C
In fact I am told that a lot.
      A            A/C#
Now I know all the wrong turns,
    D            G                D    Bm  F#m  A
The stumbles and falls brought me here.

Chorus 1:

Bm             G
 And where was I,
           Bm               E               A
Before the day that I first saw your lovely face?
      F#m          G    A  G
Now I see it every day.
    D/A A    A7
And I   know, that;

 I Am, I  Am, I Am,
    D         A
The luckiest.

Interlude:

D  G, D  A,

Verse 2:

D                 A     D           G
 What if I'd been born, 50 years be-fore you,
     D            Bm                C
In a house on the street, where you live?
      A      A/C#
Maybe I'd be outside,
       D            G             D     Bm  F#m  A
As you pass on your bike; would I know?

Chorus 2:

Bm        G           Bm
 And in a wide sea of eyes,
        E             A         F#m   G  A  G
I'd see one pair that I'd recog-nise.
    D/A A    A7

 I Am, I  Am, I Am,

     D               A            D            G
Next door there's an old man, who lived to his 90's,

And one day passed a-way in his sleep.
        A         A/C#
And his wife, she stayed,
      D         G                  D   Bm  F#m  A
For a couple of days, and passed a-way.

Chorus 3:

Bm            G
 I'm sorry, I know,
         Bm             E
That's a strange way to tell you,
       A          F#m   G  A  G
That I know we be-long.
   D/A  A    A7
That I know,  that;

The luckiest.
