Two fingers    (video)    (clip)

 

                         D

1. I drink to remember, I smoke to forget

 

    some things to be proud of, some stuff to regret.

                                         A

    gone down some dark alleys, in my own head,

                            G

    something is changing, changing, changing.

 

                          D

2. I go back to Clifton to see my old friends.

 

    the best people I could ever have met,

                    A

    skin up a fat one, hide from the Feds,

                             G

    something is changing, changing, changing.

 

         D

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain,

 A

light a cigarette and wish the world away,

         G                                                            D

I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay.

          D

So I hold two fingers up to yesterday,

 A

light a cigarette and smoke it all away,

          G                                                           D

I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay.

 

                         D

3. Down in the kitchen drinking white lightning,

                          G

   he's with my momma, yelling and fighting,

                             A

    and it's not the first time praying for silence,

                            G

    something is changing, changing, changing

 

+  CHORUS

 

 

 

 

                     Bm                                          D

+  There's a story for every corner of this place,

     Bm                                                                          D

    running so hard, you got out, but your knees got grazed.

                G                  A                                       D

    I'm an old dog but I learned some new tricks, yeah.

 

         D

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain,

 A

light a cigarette and wish the world away,

         G                                                            D

I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay.

          D

So I hold two fingers up to yesterday,

 A

light a cigarette and smoke it all away,

          G                                                          D

I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay.

 

      D

+ Hey, hey, it's fine, hey, hey, it's fine,

     G                                         D

    hey, hey, it's fine, I left it behind.
