Closer to Fine

Indigo Girls

Capo on 2nd fret
 GG6C9DsusDD9D
 GG6C9DsusDD9D
 GG6C9DsusDD9
I'm tryin' to tell you somethin 'bout my life                    
 D
 GG6C9DsusDD9
maybe give me insight between black and white                    
 D
 D11C
And the best thing you've ever done for me
 D11C
Is to help me take my life less seriously
 GG6C9DsusDD9D
Its only life after all.                                   

 GG6C9DsusDD9
Well darkness has a hunger that insatiable                      [
D]
 GG6C9DsusDD9
and lightness has a call thats hard to hear.                     
 D
 D11C
And I wrap my fear around me like a blanket.
 D11C
sailed my ship of safety til I sank it.
 G
I'm crawling on your shores.

CHORUS (1)
 DC9G
went to the doctor, I went to the mountain
 DC9G
looked to children, I drank from the fountain

CHORUS (2)
 D11C
Theres more than one answer to these questions 
 G
Pointing me  in a crooked line.
 D11C
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
 GG6C9
The closer I am to fine         
 DsusGG6C9D
The closer I am to fine               

 GG6C9DsusDD9
And I went to see the doctor of philosphy                      [D
]
 GG6C9DsusD
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee.              
 D9D
 D11C
He never did marry, or see a B grade movie.
 D11C
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me.
 GD
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, 
 C9DG
 Got my paper and I was free.  

CHORUS (1)

CHORUS (2)

Bridge - Whistle
 D11CD11C

 GG6C9DsusDD9D
stopped by a bar at three AM                            
 GG6C9DsusDD9
To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend.              [D
]
 D11C
woke up with a headache like my head against a board
 D11C
 Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before
 DG
and I went seeking clarity.

CHORUS (1)

 DC9G
We go to the doctor, we go to the mountain
 DC9G
We look to the children, we drink from the fountain.

 DC9G
We go to the Bible, we go through the workout
 DC9G
We read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout.

CHORUS (2)

When I saw the Indigo Girls live, the guitarist was actually keeping her pinky finger on the 3rd fret first string throughout a G-Am7-C-D riff progression. This is also easier than the above progression.
