Album : Tallahassee

Intro : A  C#m  D  E  D
          A  F#m  D  E

Verse 1 :
A                               C#m     
From the housetops to the gutters
D                       E      D
From the oceans to the shores
    A                                      F#m
The warning signs have all been bright and garish
D                           E
Far to great in number to ignore

A                          C#m
From the cities to the swamplands
D                        E     D
From the highways to the hills
    A                           F#m
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
D                                          E
From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils
Chorus 1 :
But I will walk
E            A        D
down to the end with you
            A                E         A
If you will come all the way down with me

Verse 2 :
A                        C#m
From the entrance to the exit
   D                                  E     D
Is longer than it looks from where we stand
I wanna say I'm sorry
for stuff I haven't done yet
D                              E      
Things will shortly get completely out of hand

      A                           C#m
I can feel it in the rotten air tonight
In the tips of my fingers
       E          D
in the skin on my face
       A                     F#m
In the weak last gasp of the evening's

dying light
       D                                E
In the way those eyes I've always

loved illuminate this place
Chorus 2 :
             D        E
Like a trashcan fire in a prison cell
         A                    D
Like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell
        A               E A        D
I will walk down to the end with you
            A                E         A
If you will come all the way down with me
