Five Hearts Breaking  Alejandro Escovedo

Here's one of my favorite Alejandro Escovedo songs. I
couldn't find the chords so I think I figured out for
myself. More of an alt-country tune, but I reckon
there's room for that on COWPIE. Thanks.
FIVE HEARTS BREAKING
Alejandro Escovedo
Every chord is an 8-count except when bracketed together
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E]The sky is black, Billy feels bad
[A]Today he thinks that he'd be better off dead
[E]He hears the pain roaring in his head
[A]He'll close his eyes and the world turns red
(hard strummed transition)
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E]Her name was Hope her hair was blacker than the sky
[A]She had a smile that made the Devil cry
[E]She held is hands, looked him in the eye
[A]She said "Believe, Believe and everything will be fine."
[E] [B7] [E] [A]  
Ev[E]ery[B7]thing will be all right
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E]Today's the day, you can bet on that
[A]I heard her close the door, she ain't looking back
[E]A twist of fate or a stroke of luck
[A]Well, the answer's over there beyond the wishing well
[E] [B7] [E] [A]  
Ev[E]ery[B7]thing will be all right
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
Soft intrumental
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E]Take the fire in your hands
And [A]place it at her feet
[E]Walk upon the mountain
Then you'll [A]sail across the sea
[E]Her eyes are taken from the stars above,
Her [A]voice is Five Hearts Breaking
He[E]r vo[B7]ice is Five Hearts [A]Breaking
He[E]r vo[B7]ice is Five Hearts Breaking
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E]The skies are fire and he's waiting to die
[A]And his heart's as empty as a dead man's eyes
[E]She held his hands, looked him in the eye
[A]She said "Believe, Believe and everything will be fine."
[E] [B7] [E] [A]  
Ev[E]eryt[B7]hing will be all right[E] [A]
Ev[E]eryt[B7]hing will be all right[E] [A]
Ev[E]eryt[B7]hing will be all right
(One quick strum per letter)
[E] [E] [E] [E] [A] [E] [E] [E] [E] [A] [E] [E] [E] [E] [A] [E]
