When the Open Road Is Closing In  The Magnetic Fields



[G]time - measured in dotted yellow [C]lines has past you [G]by
[G]and I never said an honest thing to [C]you in all my [G]life
hard [D]times go [C]slowly
and the good [G]times never [D]come
the world is a [C]motor inn in a [G]iowa highway [D]slum
[G]when the open [D]road is closing [C]in
[Em]and you can't say where it [D]ends and you [A]begin
when [G]every truck stop [D]dive's another [C]five years off your [B7]life
[G]when the open [D]road is closing [C]in
[Em]and the dotted yellow [D]lines begin to [A]spin
when the [G]sky begins to [D]fall on every[C]thing you like at [B7]all
[Am]you won't be [D]coming home a[Am]gain[D] [G]
ciao you keep on drowning in the roads between the towns
now i have been closing all the shutters in the house
well i know you'll be back when every tree is turning brown
you'll find the house is empty and the swingset's fallen down
