The Last Resort

Eagles

 EAB
 She came from Providence   
 BE
 The one in Rhode Island
 EAB
 Where the old world shadows hang   
 BE
 Heavy in the air
 EAB
 She packed her hopes and dreams   
 BE
 Like a refugee
 EAB
 Just as her father came   
 BEEEEEEsus2
 Across the sea               

She heard about a place
People were smiling
Spoke about the red man's ways
How they loved the land
They came from everywhere
To the Great Divide
Seeking a place to stand
Or a place to hide

Down in the crowded bars
Out for a good time
Can't wait to tell you all
What it's like up there
They called it paradise
I don't know why
Somebody laid the mountains low
While the town got high

 C#mC#mC#mC#mC#m+
When the chilly winds blew down
Across the canyon
Through the canyons of the coast
To the malibus
Where the pretty people played
Hungry for power
To light their neon ways
Give 'em things to do

Some rich man came and raped the land
Nobody caught him
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes
And Jesus people bought them
They called it paradise
The place to be
They watched the hazy sun
Sinking in the sea

(Key Change: changes from E to G)

 GCD
 You can leave it all behind   
 DG
 Sail to Lahaina
 GCD
 Just like the missionaries did   
 DG
 So many years ago
 GCD
 They even brought a neon sign     
 DG
 Jesus is Coming
 GCD
 Brought the white man's burden down   
 DGGGGGG+
 Brought the white man's reign             

And we'll provide the grand design
What is yours and what is mine
'Cuz there is no more new frontier
We have got to make it here
We satisfied our endlees needs
And justified our bloody deeds
In the name of destiny
And in the name of God

And you can see them there
On sunday morning
Stand up and sing about
What it's like up there
They called it paradise
I don't know why
To call someplace paradise
Kiss it goodbye

 GGGGG+
 Em Em Em Em Em+  (repeat this and fade)
