Old College Try

Mountain Goats

 AF#mDE
 AF#m
 From the housetops to the gutters
 DED
 From the oceans to the shores   
 AF#m
The warning signs have all been bright and garish
 DE
 Far to great in number to ignore

From the cities to the swamplands
From the highways to the hills
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils
 DEAD
But I will walk down to the end with you
 AEA
If you will come all the way down with me

From the entrance to the exit
Is longer than it looks from where we stand
I wanna say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet
Things will shortly get completely out of hand

I can feel it in the rotten air tonight
In the tips of my fingers in the skin on my face
In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light
In the way those eyes I've always loved illuminate this place
 DE
Like a trashcan fire in a prison cell
 AF#m
Like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell
 DEAD
I will walk down to the end with you
 AEA
If you will come all the way down with me
