Condor Ave  Elliott Smith




and she[/B] lo[Cmaj7]cked the car and[/B] sl[C]ipped past
D riff C Am Asus4 Am Bm F#
into rhythmic quietude lights bur - ning
voice [Am]dry a[/B]nd h[C]oarse
E F#* G*
i threw the screen door like a bastard back and forth
th[/B]e c[Cmaj7]himes fell[/B] ov[C]er each ot[D]her
riff C
i fell onto my knees
the sound of the [Am]car [Asus4]driving [Am]off [Bm]   [F#]   made me f[Am]eel [/B]dis[C]eased
[E]a sick [G]shouting like you h[Am]ear at the fairground
[E]now i'm picking [G]up to put a[Am]way anything of your's that's still around
[E]i don't kn[G]ow what to do with your cl[Am]othes or your letters
it'll m[E]ake a w[D]hisper out of y[C]ou [/B]   [/C]   [/G]   [/F#]    [/F]
E F#* G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
the f[/B]air[Cmaj7]ground's lit
/B C D riff C
a drunk man sits by the gate she's driving through
got his [Am]hat tipped[Asus4] bot - [Am]tle [Bm]back[F#]  in be[Am]tween [/B]his t[C]eeth
E F#* G* /B Cmaj7
looks like he's buried in the sand at the beach
/B C D riff C
i can't think about you driving off to leave barely awake
to t[Am]ake a[Asus4] lit - [Am]tle [Bm]nap[F#]  while the r[Am]oad [/B]is s[C]traight
[E]i wish that c[G]ar had [Am]never been discovered
they t[E]ook away the b[G]ottle and the h[Am]at he was under
[E]that's the o[G]ne thing that [Am]he could never do
and it'll m[E]ake a w[D]hisper out of y[C]ou[/B]   [/C]   [/G]   [/F#]    [/F]
E F#* G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
[/B]  c[Cmaj7]ops were runnin[/B]g a[C]round the scene
D riff C
looking for some kind of clue
they n[Am]ever[Asus4] get  [Am]up - [Bm]tight[F#]  when a m[Am]oth g[/B]ets c[C]rushed
E F#* G*
unless a light bulb really loved him very much
[/B]  i[Cmaj7]'m lying down [/B]   [C]
D riff C
blowing smoke from my cigarette
little w[Am]hisper[Asus4] smoke[Am]  s[Bm]igns[F#]  that you'll [Am]nev[/B]er g[C]et
[E]you're in your [G]oldsmobile [Am]driving by the moon
[E]headlights b[G]urning bright [Am]ahead of you
and [E]someone's burning o[G]ut, out on [Am]condor ave
trying to m[E]ake a [D]whisper out of y[C]ou[/B]   [/C]   [/G]   [/F#]    [/F]
[E]what a shitty th[G]ing to say
[Am]did you really mean it?
you [E]never said a w[G]ord to me a[Am]bout what passed between us
[E]so now i'm leaving y[G]ou alone
you can [Am]do whatever the hell you want to
[E]na, [D]na, na, na, na, na, [C]na [/B]   [/C]   [/G]   [/F#]    [/F]   [E]
