Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Landlocked Blues  Bright Eyes

If you [C]walk away, I’ll [G]walk away  [C]
First [C]tell me which [G]road you will [C]take
I [Am]don’t want to [G]risk our paths [C]crossing some [Am]day
So you [C]walk that way, I’ll [G]walk this way   [C]

And the [C]future hangs [G]over our [C]heads
And it [C]moves with each [G]current [C]event
Until it [Am]falls all [G]around like a [C]cold steady [Am]rain
Just [C]stay in when it’s [G]looking this [C]way

And the [C]moon’s laying [G]low in the [C]sky
Forcing [C]everything [G]metal to [C]shine
And the [Am]sidewalk holds [G]diamonds like the [C]jewelry store [Am]case
They argue [C]walk this way, now [G]walk this [C]way
And [C]Laura’s [G]asleep in my [C]bed
As I’m [C]leaving she [G]wakes up and [C]says
“I dreamed you were [Am]carried [G]away on the [C]crest of a [Am]wave
Baby [C]don’t go away,[G] come here”  [C]
And there’s [C]kids playing [G]guns in the [C]street
And ones [C]pointing his [G]tree branch at [C]me
So I [Am]put my hands [G]up I say “[C]enough is [Am]enough,
If you [C]walk away, I’ll [G]walk away”   [C]
And he shot me dead [C7]    [Am]
I found a [G]liquid [C]cure    [Am]
From my [G]landlocked [C]blues
It’ll [Am]pass [G]away like a [C]slow [Am]parade
It’s [C]leaving but I [G]don’t know how [C]soon
And the world’s got me dizzy again
You think after 22 years I’d be used to the spin
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
So I’m always pacing around or walking away
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And I’m balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away

A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But don’t walk away, don’t walk away

We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in background of a televised war
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
“If we walk away, they’ll walk away”

But greed is a bottomless pit
And our freedom’s a joke
We’re just taking a piss
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
If you’re still free start running away
Cause we’re coming for you!

I’ve grown tired of holding this post
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
So I’m making a deal with the devils of faith
Saying “let me walk away, please”
You’ll be free child once you have died
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
Till then walk away, walk away

So I’m up at dawn
Putting on my shoes
I just want to make a clean escape
I’m leaving but I don’t know where to
I know I’m leaving but I don’t know where to
