A chord diagramE MajorE
as we cruised across the Canadian border
                                            A chord diagramE MajorE
you reached into your handbag, pulled out a micro-cassette recorder,

started quoting Tolstoy into the machine,
     A chord diagramE MajorE
i had no idea what you meant.

i guess i'm supposed to figure these things out,
   A chord diagramE MajorE
or maybe it's supposed to be self-evident.
              A chord diagramBB
but i've gone feral,
    E*
and i don't speak the language anymore.
A chord diagramE MajorE
we're headed deep into the forest,

i've got the pedal to the floor.
                           A chord diagramD MajorD
the engine shudders, like a dying man, when you reach out to grab my hand,
A chord diagramA augmentedA
you can bring out all your weapons,
                        A chord diagramE MajorE
you can't make me go to war.

long winding Canadian highways, innumerable evergreens.
A chord diagramE MajorE
weather forecast on the AM radio
           A chord diagramE MajorE
says we'll be expecting highs in the low teens
                                     A chord diagramG6G6
when i mouth my silent curses at you,
Em11/E
i can see my breath.
                                             A chord diagramG6G6
i hope the stars don't even come out tonight.
      Em11/E
i hope we both freeze to death.
E*
look at the person i've turned into, tell me, how do you like him now?
E*
no standards of any kind to break, no creeds to disavow
A chord diagramD MajorD
i am right here where you want me
A chord diagramD MajorD
do what you brought me out here for.
        A chord diagramA augmentedA
you can arm me to the teeth.
(muted strumming)       A chord diagramE MajorE
you can't make me go to war.
