Song Author Billy Corgan Lyrics by: Billy Corgan Performer: Smashing Pumpkins Submitted by: ovolden
[B]    [Em]    
[C]Shakedown 197[B]9 [Em]    
[C]Cool kids never have the [B]time [Em]    
[C]On a live wire right up off the [D]street
You and [Am]I should mee[B]t [Em]    
[C]Junebug skipping like a [B]stone [Em]    
With the [C]headlights pointed at the [B]dawn [Em]    
[C]We were sure we'd never see an [D]end to it [Am]all   

And [D]I don't even [Am]care to shake these zipper [D]blues
And we don't [Am]know   
Just where our bones will [D]rest
To dust I [Am]guess
Forgotten a[D]nd absorbed into [Am] the eart[B]h below

[C]Double cross the vacant and the [B]bored [Em]    
[C]They're not sure just what we have in [B]store
[Em]Morphine city slippin' [D]dues down to [Am]see   

That [D]we don't even [Am]care as restless as we [D]are  
We feel the [Am]pull in the land of a thousand [D]guilts
And pour[Am]ed cement, lamente[D]d and assured
To the lights and [C]towns below
[D]Faster than the [C]speed of sound
[D]Faster than we [C]thought we'd go
[D]Beneath the [Am]sound of [B]hope

[C]Justine never knew the [B]rules, [Em]    
[C]Hung down with the freaks and the [B]ghouls [Em]    
No [C]apologies ever need be [B]made [Em]    
[C]I know you better than you [D]fake it to [Am]see   

That [D]we don't even [Am]care to shake these zipper [D]blues
And we don't [Am]know just where our bones will [D]rest
To dust I [Am]guess
Forgotten and [D]absorbed into the [Am]earth be[B]low  

[C]The street heats the urgency of [B]now [Em]    
[C]As you see there's no [D]one around


Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin' dues down to see

That we don't even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go
Beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it to see

That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

The street heats the urgency of now
As you see there's no one around
