Aaaack!!!!  In looking at this song today, I was mortified
to notice that the transcription of 2001-04-16 had the 
chord 998000 (wrong!!!) in places instead of 999800.  It 
was a stupid typo, but in any case, I'm changing the 999800
chord to 999000, which is simpler and works just as well.  
I've also changed the chords for the chorus:

054000 is now 000000
042000 is now 11 0 11 000
020000 is now 999000

999000   555500   000000   777700

999000   555500   000000   777700

     999000            555500   
I am walking past the  sprinklers and the


000000         777700
newly painted  porches and the


999000           555500   
lemonade stand   girls on a


000000           777700
suburban after-  noon     I am


999000           555500   
leaving cuz I    love you   I am


000000           777700
leaving cuz I    don't    And I'm


999000           555500   
hoping you will  follow and I'm 


000000           777700
praying that you won't     Let me 


999000   555500   000000   777700
go

999000   555500   000000   777700


      999000           555500   
I am  captive in your  presence I will


000000             777700
melt before your   eyes   But I


999000               555500
still crave your ap- proval and I'm


000000        777700     222200        555500
helpless when you criticize    criti-  cize    Cuz it's


000000            11 0 11 000
written on your   body it's on the 


999000                   222200
tip of your tongue   The look in your eyes in the 


555500
glare of the sun the


000000               11 0 11 000
touch of your cold   fingers


999000         222200
when you say   goodbye  the


555500                    777700
way that you linger the   way that you 


     999000   555500    000000    777700
lie


999000   555500    000000    777700

Well here I go     here I   go    here I   go

Outtro:

    555500                     777700
The way that we linger,  the   way that we lie    The


555500                         777700
touch of your fingers and the  look in your eyes   The


555500                  777700
way we accuse and the   way we deny
