Valley of the Low Sun  Jakob Dylan

Capo 4th
[C]We'd feel much better if we sunk this treasure
And [Am]laid our armor [G]down
[F]These precious metals and these captain's letters
[C]They are no use to us [G]now
[C]In the day we struggle with fatigue much greater
Than [Am]any offer [G]was
[F]We bow down and worship these bandits and cowboys
[C]Unable to hold their own [G]guns
[F]I know that soldiers are not paid to think
But [C]something is [G]making us [F]sick
[C]Onward and steady
[G]Able and young
In the [F]valley of the [G]low, low [C]sun
In the shade we wander along a highway's shoulder
Into the back of beyond
Burning the daylight into a pastime
That's too wise to come more than once
It's boom boom thunder ain't no sleep coming
Out mining a slippery world
Of snow covered beaches and junkyards of diesel
And bombers named after girls
On bridges of black ice not built for the rush
There's a new kind of beast getting up
That's stranger than fiction
Speaking in tongue
In the valley of the low, low sun
[C]Hold on for the [Em]slow turning
[F]Smoke if you've got 'em boys[G]
This is bottom hiding [Am]out
[Am]Down under the stairs
[G]Tomorrow has come
Like it's drunk on the blood
Of the [Am]men who have dared to be [F]there
C G F C G(Hold)
The earth's still climbing as it keeps on grinding
Its way up around the sun
As cool water crashes down to the masses
Bootlegged and bottled like rum
My dreams are humble, lean as arrows
Streetwise, ready, and fair
As we bum rush the ages tied to the rails
On high seas not fit to be sailed
Whatever we've taken does feel like heaven
But baby, we just look like hell
Act like you mean it where paradise was
In the valley of the low, low sun
Act like you mean it where paradise was
In the valley of the low, low sun
C F G (Sounds more complicated due to the overdubbed guitar soloing over the top, but it
like to me underneath he just cycles these chords)
Finish on C
*G/G# - 420003 I've tried using this chord. It sounds right since he only seems to play
E, A and D strings
