Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Painted eyelids   Beck

	This song comes from the One Foot in the Grave album on K records.  
If you don't have it, I would highly recomend its immediate purchase.  

These chords are played by hitting the lowest note first followed by a 
few strums, and that pattern is repeated.  Your best bet is to listen to 
the CD for the exact rhythm.  Also, there may be some pulloffs/hammerons 
around the A chord (Perhaps a second guitar?).  Anyway, this is pretty 
much it.  Any corrections or additions will be greatly appreciated.

Intro: D

D                            A  
I wake up and look upon your painted eyelids
    G                            F
The world is your oyster and the trashbags are your kids
D                                  A      
The ceiling is invisible there's a bird sinkin through the sky
    G                         F    
and every hour that passes is teachin me how to cry

Chorus(kind of):
A7                          D 
Cuz it's lonely here in the ugly part of town
A7                                   D
the buildings are all vacant and the telephones are down
D                                   A     
There's a police siren singin like a tiger with no skin
    G                                   F   
the sewer drain is glowin and I don't know what state I'm in
D                                    A    
And the river is on fire and there's chemicals and debris
G                                  F   
All the roads are blocked off  it's just too hard to see
A7                           D  
So cancel my appointment and set up a whole new show
A7                                        D
'Cuz I'm in need of a good hot meal and a life to call my own
(Harmonica solo over verse chords 1x)
D                                 A
So get me a plate of money and get me a blanket and a chair
G                                     F
The limitations are limitless they're floating through the air
A7                               D
'Cuz it's real and it's true the things I see in you
A7                                                     D
And there's nothin that I wouldn't talk about with the clearest

dream that ever drifted by...

Fade on verse chords with harmonica and sounds
Hope you enjoy it
