D                  D/B
  On the corner of main street
Asus4                       A
  Just tryin' to keep it in line
D                   D/B
  You say you wanna move on and
Asus4                   A
  You say I'm falling behind

Pre Chorus:

                D     D/B    Asus4    A
Can you read my mind?

Can you read my mind?

Verse 2:

D                     D/B
  I never really gave up on
Asus4                  A
  Breakin' out of this two-star town
D                       D/B
  I got the green light, I got a little flight
Asus4                         A
  I'm gonna turn this thing around

                D      D/B     Asus4    A
Can you read my mind?

Chorus:

             G                D
The good old days, the honest man;
             A
The restless heart, the Promised Land
         G                D
A subtle kiss that no one sees;
         A
A broken wrist and a big trapeze
                G                  D
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
            A        A/Bb      Bmin
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine
           G                   A
Before you go, can you read my mind?

Verse 3:

D                         D/B
  It’s funny how you just break down
Asus4             A
  Waitin' on some sign
           D                     D/B
  I pull up to the front of your driveway
Asus4                   A
  With magic soakin' my spine

Pre Chorus:

                D      D/B     Asus4     A
Can you read my mind?
                D      D/B     Asus4     A
Can you read my mind?

Chorus:

            G                 D
The teenage queen, the loaded gun;
              A
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
           G                D
A southern drawl, a world unseen;
       A
A city wall and a trampoline
                G               D
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
            A        A/Bb      Bmin
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine
           G
Before you jump
                 A                     Bmin
Tell me what you find when you read my mind

Chorus:

               G             D
Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
            A
He never returned that call
                G                  D
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
                     A
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said

             Bmin            A
Well I don't mind, you don't mind
            G                  D
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine
                    Bmin
Put your back on me
                 A
Put your back on me

                 G            D        D/B
         A
Put your back on me

Outro:

D                            D/B               Asus4            A
  The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
                 D         D/B         Asus4          A
When you read my mind

D        D/B        Asus4           A
