Californias Dark

Nightwatchman

 F#B
 It started in basements  
 F#
And it started in sheds  
 B
It started in backyards   
 F#E/B
And was hidden under beds      
 B
I turned on the TV  
 F#E/B
Don't believe a word they say     
 B
We can't stay here   
 F#
And we can't get away   

 BF#B
  There's a riot on Sunset   
 F#B
And fires burn in the park      
F# E/B (Note: On the B-snare 9th fret becomes 10th)B
The sun has set my friend

And California's dark

||A F#||
 B
And over the screaming   
 F#
I heard a clear voice    
 B
I looked at my choices    
 F#E/B
And I made a choice       
 B
Smoke and ashes     
 F#E/B
Tonight hide the stars      
 B
The stop lights are red now, love  
 F#
We've come for what's ours  

 BF#B
  There's a riot on Sunset   
 F#B
And fires burn in the park      
F# E/B (Note: On the B-snare 9th fret becomes 10th)B
The sun has set my friend

And California's dark

|| A || F#5 ||

 F#5
 Come stand among the rattlesnakes

At the side of the desert road

And close your eyes and listen
 B5F#5
 To the music hard and cold  

Tonight the moon is blackened

Tonight the doors are shut

Behind the shuttered windows
 B5F#5
We pray the sun will come up  
 F#
 For something walks across these fields

For which there is no name

You might have heard different
 BF#
 But I was there when it came  

It will start with a spark

And a great fire will grow
 B
Don't know how I know it   
 F#
But I just know   

 B
There's a riot on Sunset  
 F#B
And fires burn in the park      
 F#
The sun sets everywhere
 BF#B
And the whole damn country's dark      
 F#B
There's a riot on Sunset   
 F#B
And fires burn in the park      
F# E/B ( Again with the 10th fret on the B ) B
The sun has set my friend
|| A F# || B B A F# ||
And California's dark

B B5 E/B F# F#5
