Avocados & Beer

Hear the version from 'Circumstantial Evidence":

[INTRO: Long A]

VERSE 1:

            A         A              A       A
It's been a day and a half since you left me
         D             D           D  D
And I've tried to make sense of it all
         E               E
I didn't know you were unhappy,
        D           D            A   A  A  A
I never saw we were headed for a fall
       A         A      A            A
When I enter the empty apartment you left,
         D              D          D     D
Well you know that it's lonely, my dear.
      E        E             D             D    E E
And I open the fridge to see what is still there
        D       D         A    A  A  A
To only find avocados and beer.

VERSE 2:

I know that I'm sometimes hard to get along with
But I didn't know I was that bad
And if I was insensitive, I'm sorry
'Cause you're the best thing I ever had
I should have listened to all you were saying
I understand why you had to leave here
It was still quite a shock to come home home this evening
To only find avocados and beer.

CHORUS:

             E    E
Avocados and beer!
     E           E                   E           E            A
All alone in the fridge, it's what's left of the life that we made
   A         E     E
Avocados and beer!
  E            E                   E         E            A
I thought we'd never part, but now all of my dreams are betrayed
   A         D     D
Avocados and beer!
  D                 D
I thought we were a great pair
           A                 A
But you've left now, and now I'm aware
          E              E                E            E
We're not like beans and cornbread, I've afraid that instead
        E     E  D        D         A    A A A
We go together    like avocados and beer

[SOLO: E E E E D D D D E E D D A A A A A A A A]

VERSE 3:

Now I know that I drink maybe more than I should
My beer belly's gotten quite a few stares
But I always tried to get you whatever you wanted
That's why I bought those alligator pears
And I thought that together we'd make it at last
We'd conquer together our fears
But all of my hopes have transformed into pain
I've just got avocados and beer

CHORUS:

             E    E
Avocados and beer!
     E           E                   E           E            A
All alone in the fridge, it's what's left of the life that we made
   A         E     E
Avocados and beer!
  E            E                   E         E            A
I thought we'd never part, but now all of my dreams are betrayed
   A         D     D
Avocados and beer!
  D                 D
I thought we were a great pair
           A                 A
But you've left now, and now I'm aware
          E              E               E            E        E E
We're not like peas in a pod, we're like hotcakes and salt cod
           E              E        E              E        E E
We're like caviar and kielbasa, or strychnine and waffles,
        E     E D         D         A   A A A
We go together    like avocados and beer

[SOLO: E E E E D D D D E E D D A A A - cha cha cha]
