Poison Oak  Bright Eyes

[A]  [A2]                                   
Poison oak some boyhood bravery
[A]wh[A2]en a telephone was a tin can on a string
[A3]i f[A4]ell alseep you were still talking to me
[A]yo[A2]u said you werent afraid to die

[A]  [A2]                                   
[A]in[A2] polaroids you were dressed in womens clothes
[A]wh[A2]ere you made ashame, why'd you lock them in a drawer?
[A3]wel[A4]l, i dont think i ever loved you more
[A]th[A2]an when you turned away, when you slammed the door,
[A3]whe[A4]n you stole the car, drove towards mexico,
[A]an[A2]d you wrote bad checks , just to fill your arm
[A3]i w[A4]as young enough, i still believed in wars.

A A2 A5 A A6 A2 x 2

[A3]wel[A4]l let those poets cry themselves to sleep
[A3]all[A4] their tearful words will turn back into steam
[A]bu[A2]t me i'm a single cell on a serpents tounge
[A3]the[A4]res a muddy feld where a garden was
[A]an[A2]d i'm glad you got away
[A3]but[A4] i'm still stuck out here
[A]my[A2] clothes are soaking wet from your brothers tears

A A2 A5 A A6 A2 x 2

[A3]and[A4] i never thought this life was possible
[A3]you[A4]'re the yellow bird that i've been waiting for
[A]th[A2]e end of paralysis i was a statuette
[A3]now[A4] i'm drunk as hell at a piano bench
[A]an[A2]d when i press the keys it all gets reversed
[A3]the[A4] sound of loneliness, makes me happier

A A2 A5 A A6 A2 x 2 end on A
