  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Dear Slim, I wrote you but you still ain't callin'
  I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I sent two letters back in autumn  You must not have got 'em
  It probably was a problem at the post office or somethin'
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em
  But anyways, fuck it, what's been up man, how's your daughter?
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  My girlfriend's pregnant too, I'm out to be a father
  If I have a daughter, guess what I'm-a call her? I'm-a name her Bonnie.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I read about your uncle Ronnie too, I'm sorry
  I had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didn't want him.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan.
  I even got the underground shit that you did with Scam.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I got a room full of your posters and your pictures, man.
  I like the shit you did with Ruckus too, that shit was fat.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back, just to chat
  Truly yours, your biggest fan, this is Stan.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Dear Slim, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have the chance.
  I ain't mad, I just think it's fucked up you don't answer fans.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  If you didn't want to talk to me outside your concert You didn't have
  to but you could have signed an autograph for Matthew.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  That's my little brother, man. He's only 6 years old.
  We waited in the blistering cold for you for 4 hours and ya just said no.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  That's pretty shitty man, you're like his fuckin' idol
  He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I ain't that mad, but I just don't like bein' lied to.
  Remember when we met in Denver, you said if I write you
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  You would write back. See, I'm just like you in a way.
  I never knew my father neither. He used to always cheat on my mom and beat her.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I can relate to what you're sayin' in your songs.
  So when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put 'em on.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  Cause I don't really got shit else, so that shit helps when I'm depressed.
  I even got a tattoo with your name across the chest.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds.
  It's like adrenaline. The Pain is such a sudden rush for me.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  See, everything you say is real, and I respect you 'cause you tell it.
  My girlfriend's jealous 'cause I talk about you 24/7.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  But she don't know you like I know you, Slim, no one does.
  She don't know what it was like for people like us growing up.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  You've gotta call me man. I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose.
  Sincerely yours, Stan. PS: We should be together too.

  [Chorus] (soft guitar + rain + little drums)

  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Dear Mr. "I'm too good to call or write my fans"
  This'll be the last package I ever send your ass.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  It's been six months and still no word. I don't deserve it?
  I know you got my last two letters, I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  So this is my cassette I'm sending you. I hope you hear it.
  I'm in the car right now. I'm doing 90 on the freeway.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  Hey Slim, "I drank a fifth of vodka, ya dare me to drive?"
  You know that song by Phil Collins from "The Air In The Night"?
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  About that guy who could have saved that other guy from drowning? But didn't?
  Then Phil saw it all then at his show he found him?
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  That's kinda how this is. You could have rescued me from drowning.
  Now it's too late. I'm on a thousand downers now, I'm drowsy.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  And all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call.
  I hope you know I ripped all o' your pictures off the wall.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  I love you Slim, we could have been together. Think about it. You ruined it now,
  I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  And when you dream, I hope you can't sleep and you scream about it.
  I hope your conscious eats at you and you can't breathe without me.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  See Slim, {screaming} shut up bitch, I'm trying to talk
  Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screaming in the trunk.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  But I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you.
  'Cause if she suffocates, she'll suffer more, and then she'll die too.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  Well, gotta go, I'm almost at the bridge now.
  Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this shit out?
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E (car crash)
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E

  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner, but I've just been busy. 
  You said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that. 
  And here's an autograph for your brother: I wrote it on your Starter cap.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I'm sorry I didn't see you at the show, I must have missed you.
  Don't think I did that shit intentionally, just to diss you.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  And what's this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
  I say that shit just clownin' dawg, c'mon, how fucked up is you?
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  You got some issues, Stan, I think you need some counselin'
  To help your ass from bouncin' off the walls when you get down some.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  And what's this shit about us meant to be together?
  That type of shit'll make me not want us to meet each other.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I really think you and your girlfriend need each other.
  Or maybe you just need to treat her better.
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  I hope you get to read this letter. I just hope it reaches you in time.
  Before you hurt yourself, I think that you'd be doin' just fine
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  If you'd relax a little. I'm glad that I inspire you, but Stan Why are you so mad?
  Try to understand that I do want you as a fan.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  I just don't want you to do some crazy shit.
  I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick.
  G#m   E   F#   B   B/Bb
  Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
  And had his girlfriend in the trunk and she was pregnant with his kid
  G#m   E   Eadd9-   E
  And in the car they found a tape but it didn't say who it was to
  Come to think about it... his name was... it was you. DAMN!
