Stale Tequila

Hear the solo version from 'Mistaken Identity': Hear the band version from 'Circumstantial Evidence':
          C           G         F     C
After the show, I had packed up my guitar.
              C             G        F      Ami
You caught my eye, you were standing at the bar.
                 G
You flashed me a knowing grin,
Ami                        G
   Looking so good, it was half a sin.
Ami                       G
   I felt myself start to fall in lust.
   F
My brain began to whirl,
       G
'til I thought it might combust.

CHORUS:

           C
And I woke up,
                      G    F     Ami
The taste of stale tequila in my mouth.
                       G
I looked around, I was all alone.
    F
How could you do it?
            G
You were so beautiful.

A few more drinks, and a half a pack of smokes.
We talked for hours, you laughed at all my jokes.
Then we went back to your hotel
and did some things
I shouldn't tell.
I felt myself
start to fall asleep.
You made me feel so safe
that it almost made me weep.

[CHORUS]

Then I awoke in a bathtub full of ice.
You left a note, I had to read it twice:
It said, "Call 911.
I stole your kidney.
Thanks for the fun."
I felt myself
start to fall apart.
I know you took my kidney
but you also stole my heart.

[CHORUS]
