Good Intent  Kimbra

Kimbra's "Good Intent," capo 6th fret
*Bass-esque run (this is just one measure repeated 4x, consider dashes to be 8th notes):

*"ooh's"- I show them on e string and on g&d strings (dashes also 8th notes):

Lyrics and Chords:
You h[Am]eard the crickets of the early eve
They l[E7]urk around the opening in [Am]two's and three's
Clementine told you not to move with the breeze
I'll t[E7]ake you down to places where we d[Am]are not speak
The [Am]red light in the [Am7]doorway [D7]says she's armed
But [E7]boy go try your luck and you [Am]might get pass
[Am]Step into the [Am7]dwelling of the l[D7]iger's mouth
[E7]Peer into the panic for a [Am]kick and swell
You [Am]know you shouldn't [Am7]be there but it's [D7]way past bed
There's [E7]comfort in the fingers of your [Am]good intent
You [Am]know you shouldn't [Am7]be there but your [D7]money's all spent
You've [E7]got your reputation and your [Am]good [D]intent
[E7]Your good i[Am]ntent *instert bass run or "ooh's" here
Out to feed that habit when you've sowed that seed
Nothing made you feel out of the ordinary
But the air turns sombre and the night took heed
Took you on a waltz of hypocrisy
She broke your bones, now you're lying in the dirt
The shadow of a hunter under your torture
It's not enough to say, it's not what's in your heart
You've tainted every moment till death do we part
I know you didn't mean it, boy you meant so well
The pennies are cascading down your wishing well
I know you didn't mean it when you counted to ten
You're slipping through the fingers of your good intent
I know you didn't mean it, though you meant so well
The pennies are cascading down your wishing well
I know you didn't mean it when you counted to ten
You've got your reputation and your good intent
Such a good intent *four measure
[Am]It's not enough to hope for the [Am7]best
[D7]It's not enough to lie there[E7] on a brace
[Am]The liger's on the [Am7]prowl now you've [D7]pulled its strings
[Am]One false move and soon you're [E7]playing dice for a...
*measure rest, hit E7 for one beat at the end of the measure then Am. If you listen to
the album version or watch the music video, there are no more words, its sort of a
dance-break; only the bass run and "ooh's," so you can fade out on those or end on
a strum on Am!)-Enjoy!
