Track Number 8  Sun Kil Moon

I crossed the hi[F]ghways like I did as a child[D] [F]
[Bm]On my way to the [Am]movies, I [G]pet cats and [F]smile
[F]I walk the back alleys, their [D]John Steinback [F]calm
[Bm]Fake trees, [Am]lemon trees, [G]tall shady [F]palms
[Em]Big empty churches, [D]old antique [Am]stores
[Em]Peeling Victorians that [D]used to house [Am]whores
[Em]I take the back streets [D]back to my [Am]digs
[Em]And look up at skies like I [D]did as a [Am]kid
[F]My bedroom window, I'd [D]look out and [F]dream
[Bm]Of a life [Am]close to [G]what I'm [F]living
[F]A traveling singer who [D]plays good [F]guitar
[Bm]At outdoor [Am]festivals, [G]theaters and [F]bars
[Em]And I got a [D]nice girl, she's beautiful [Am]too
[Em]We're destined to [D]be this, I know to be [Am]true
[Em]Sure there were [D]others, but nothing this [Am]nice
[Em]She set the [D]bait and I took the [Am]bite
[Em]The streets of [F]Martinez, I [G]love them [Am]so
[Em]I walk around [F]thinking the [G]sun's always [Am]low
[Em]The cats of [F]Martinez, I l[G]ove them [Am]so
[Em]I feed them at [F]night, they [G]run off and [Am]go
[Em]Four kitty [F]cats, [G]gave them their n[Am]ames
[Em]Monster Fluff, [F]Half Fluff, [G]No Fluff and [Am]Sammy
[Em]They're the [F]highlights of my [G]songwriting [Am]days
[Em]They're happy to [F]see me, we [G]sit and we [Am]play
[F]These are some words I [D]wrote down last [F]night
[Bm]I've beat 'em to [Am]death and I [G]can't get 'em [F]right
[F]Songwriting's lonely, [D]songwriting [F]hurts
[Bm]A relentless i[Am]tch and [G]bed bug [F]curse
[Em]Songwriting [D]costs, it doesn't come [Am]free
[Em]Ask Eliot [D]Smith, ask Richie [Am]Lee
[Em]Ask Mark Lin[D]kous, ask Shannon [Am]Hoon
[Em]To get up on [D]stage and sing you a tu[Am]ne
[F]This business is troubling, a [D]big nagging [F]cyst
[Bm]You get on this [Am]plane and I'll s[G]it at your [F]desk
[F]And I'll leave at eight and [D]be home by [F]five
[Bm]Call me from [Am]Warsaw if [G]you have [F]time
[Em]Ever wonder why [D]there aren't [Am]more
[Em]Than ten songs on most [D]albums, cause it's a [Am]chore
[Em]To write half a dozen, [D]some guys lay [Am]back
[Em]And rest on their l[D]aurels
Like lazy old [Am]hacks
[Em]Well I wrote [F]this one
And I [G]know it ain't g[Am]reat
[Em]We'll probably [F]sequence it
T[G]rack number [Am]eight
[Em]And pick up some water at [F]7-11
On my [G]way to the mastering [Am]session
[Em]The streets of Mar[F]tinez, I [G]love them [Am]so
[Em]I walk out the [F]door and the [G]sun always [Am]flows
[Em]The cats of Mar[F]tinez, I [G]love them [Am]so
[Em]They help me [F]forget my [G]songwriting [Am]woes
