Chords and Lyrics Conor Oberst - Mamah Borthwick A Sketch


Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Mamah Borthwick A Sketch

Intro :
C Am G F

Verse :

C Em
Just because you got it

You don't have to flaunt it
F C G
With an endless dream of famous men
C Em
Pretty as a portrait

Looked like Mamah Northwick
F C G F
On that Shining Brow of Taliesin

Chorus :

F C
Someone might try and burn it down
Em F G
So you'll have to put the fire out
C G C F Am Em F G C
Fortunes spent but that's irrelevant to build something that's sacred till the end

Interlude : C Am G F

Verse :
C Em
It cost twenty dollars to visit Fallingwater
F C G
It's the perfect house where no one lives
C Em F C G F
Maybe someone once did but they got evicted by a busload full of greedy tourists

Chorus :
F C
And it would take a time machine
Em F G
To fulfill all of my fantasies
C G C F
'Cause a hidden dream can be embarrassing
Am Em F G C
And the only thing that's sacred till the end

Interlude : C Am G F

Verse :
C
Every time I tempt fate
Em
There's a major earthquake
F C G
Heard the people scream as the ceiling fell
C
Every building damaged
Em
Only one left standing
F C G F
It was Frank Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel

Chorus :
F C
A rumination in my mind
Em F G
Winding like the ramp at the Guggenheim
C G C
I'm not content
F Am Em F G C
But I'm feeling hesitant to build something that's sacred till the end

Outro : C Am G F
