“Canceled Check”
Beck

B                               D       A  E     A       B
I hate to do this, but you’re a pain in the neck.
I thought you knew this; you handed me a canceled check.
You’re so helpless; your girlfriends think you’re a saint.
B                                      D       A  E     A                 D
I’ll give you a quarter; I’ll keep my judgments to myself…

D                                        F#
And I get caught up in the moonlight,
F#                          B                             B7
Reaching out for a rotten egg — I don’t wanna beg —
B7  G                         F#                  B
It’s crystal clear your time is nearly gone.

Count your blessings, and do the things that you should.
Oh, the has-beens that never had it so good…
Stormy weather, the kids are making a racket
In the wilderness, the wild lives are so mild…

And I get caught up in the moonlight,
Reaching out for a rotten egg — I don’t wanna beg —
It’s crystal clear your time is nearly gone.

SOLO (over verse chords)

And I get caught up in the moonlight,
Reaching out for a rotten egg — I don’t wanna beg —
It’s crystal clear your time is nearly gone.
