Conor Oberst - Afterthought

Chords and Lyrics Conor Oberst - Afterthought


Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Afterthought

Verse :
C F C
I woke up this mornin' still wearin' that tie
C G C
The one with the hammer and sickle design
C F C
Threw up all the pills my doctor prescribed
C G C C Fmaj7 C
And went out to fetch me some air

C F C
The streets were so crowded with billboards and signs
C G C
Food trucks double parked in their parallel lines
C F C
I thought about breakfast but settled on wine
C G F
Always choose hunger over despair
C G C C7
And what's possible over what's there

Chorus :
F C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7 C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
F C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C G F
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
Dm F C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

Harmonica :
C F C G7

Verse :

C F C
I sat down today in a high barber's chair
C G C
To hear the town gossip and clean up my hair
C F C
He said she was seen on the bus station stairs
C G C C Fmaj7 C
With her suitcase threatenin' to walk

C F C
Not sure how true it was but I'll hazard a guess
C G C
It's probably not more and it's probably not less
C F C
If that college kid bookie was accepting bets
C G F
The brackets would mostly be chalk
C G C C7
Yeah it's safe to assume that she's lost

Chorus :
F C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7 C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
F C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C G F
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
Dm F C
Then she's gone and I've run out of time

Harmonica :
C F C G7

Verse :

C F C
I can't be concerned with the state that I'm in
C G C
At the height of the scandal with vertigo spins
C F C
Take every audition til I'm Errol Flynn
C G C C Fmaj7 C
And bring it to life off the page

C F C
And I'll get up tomorrow still wearin' that tie
C G C
The one with the skull and the crossbone designs
C F C
If I'm asked if I miss her it's easy to lie
C G F
In this world that's called more of the same
C G C C7
Yeah I wouldn't feel proud or ashamed

Chorus :

F C
'cause it isn't as though we get what we want
G7 C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
F C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C G F
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
Dm F C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

Outro/Harmonica :
C F C G7
C F
C F C G7 C F G F C
