This is a great, great song. One of those that you wish had another verse and 
chorus but at the same time you love how short and sweet it is. 

Just hit the base note of each chord for all the verses. On the Pre-chorus-type 
parts start strumming and strum loudest for Chorus. Listen to the song for Strum pattern.



    

Intro: C

Verse:
F                       C

all the tables nice and clean
F          C

evelyns asleep
 F                 C

on the grave yard shift again
           G

selling gasoline

           F                   C

and theres kids smoking on south first
            F              Am        G

see high-school was just a blur, to her
  C                               G

and everything just found their place it seemed



    

Pre-Chorus:
          Am         F            C         G

theres an old folk song on the radio
        Am      F        C          G

sounding thin and dark and haunted
      Am          F          C                     G

theres a bag of weed in the back beneath the books

         Am               F          C             G

and she cant stand the sight of this coldasac 
              Am        F         C             G

like an old crow, king of the lamp-post
   Am        F           C                      G

and this window hasnt been this clean since it last rained

C


Verse:
F                              C

well she pictures up a different day
F                   C

driving west to east L.A
F                        C

and there aint no sign of a dime but hey
G                     (Start strumming)
anyone can dream     anyone can dream

Chorus:
C                 F                   Am                    G

and all the college girls come in when the bars let out and theyre hungry
C             F             Am                         G

making such a mess, evelyn just talks trash, as shes sweeping up

Pre-chorus:
        Am          F           C          G

theres a thin dark cloud in the evening air
      Am    F    C      G  
after every sunny day
    Am          F              C

theres a bum who lives in the parking lot
               G

wash the windows just to say hey.

Just to say, hey. Ya

Chorus: Instrumental
(C   F   Am   G)  x4

Verse:
F                       C

all the tables nice and clean
F           C

evelyns asleep
         F                    C

on the grave yard shift again
           G

selling gasoline
        F                C

selling gasoline

All the tables nice and clean
Evelyn’s asleep
On the grave yard shift again
Selling gasoline

And there's kids smoking on south first
See high-school was just a blur, to her
And everything just found their place it seemed

There's an old folk song on the radio
Sounding thin and dark and haunted
There's a bag of weed in the back beneath the books

And she can’t stand the sight of this cul de sac
Like an old crow, king of the lamp-post
And this window hasn’t been this clean since it last rained

Well she pictures up a different day
Driving west to east l.a
And there ain't no sign of a dime, but hey
Anyone can dream…anyone can dream

And all the college girls come in when the bars let out and they’re hungry
Making such a mess, evelyn just talks trash, as she’s sweeping up

There's a thin dark cloud in the evening air
After every sunny day
There’s a bum who lives in the parking lot
Wash the windows just to say hey

All the tables nice and clean
Evelyn’s asleep
On the grave yard shift again
Selling gasoline
