Monster Ballads

Josh Ritter

-----------------


 GCG
 Radio waves are coming miles and miles
 CG
 Bringing only empty boats
 CG
Whatever feeling they had when they sailed
 CG
 Somehow slipped out between the notes

 EmCG
 Out on the desert and feeling lost
 EmCG
 The bonnet wears a wire albatross
 EmCG
 Monster ballads and the stations of the cross
 DC
 Sighing just a little bit
 DC
 Sighing just a little bit

And I was thinking 'bout what Katy done
Thinking 'bout what Katy did
The fairest daughter of the Pharoah's son
Dressed in gold 'neath pyramids

Out on the desert now and feeling lost
The bonnet wears a wire albatross
Monster ballads and the stations of the cross
Sighing just a little bit
Sighing just a little bit

 C
 Ones and zeroes bleeding mesa noise
 GD
 And when you're empty there's so much space for them
 C
 You turn it off but then a still, small voice
 GD
 Comes in blazing from some vast horizon

(piano solo)

And I was thinking 'bout my river days
And I was thinking 'bout me and Jim
Passing cairo on a getaway
With every steamboat like a hymn

Out on the desert now and feeling lost
The bonnet wears a wire albatross
Monster ballads and the stations of the cross
Sighing just a little bit
 DC
 Smiling just a little bit
