Red Violins  The Gaslight Anthem

There is no use to holler, n[C]o use to cry.
Twenty[F] pounds of curses came to visit [C]me tonight.
Salt for all the cuts, blankets for the cold.
Prayers to [F]keep the devil far away from [C]those I love.
And there were red violins, playing in my dreams.
One for [F]me and two for me, and [C]one at Jesus' feet.
And [G]one I only re[F]ach to for sympath[C]y.
And if you [Am]want it, then you w[F]ant it.
For when you're f[C]alling on your kn[G]ees.
I seen you h[Am]owling now, you w[F]ater at the mouth.
I seen you [C]fawn and faint in n[G]eed.
Are there r[F]ed violins[G] playing you to s[C]leep?
[C]Chariot swing low, if you come for me.
[F]Ain't it now, the strangest sound we ca[C]ll on for relief?
Look at the all these people clapping steady to the beat,
Of the a[F]mbulances on their way to [C]me?
So if you [Am]wanna, then you w[F]anna.
Everybody p[C]ays the price to f[G]eed.
And since you're ho[Am]wling now, you're foaming [F]at the mouth
And since you're s[C]truck right off your f[G]eet.
I'll play r[F]ed violi[G]ns?
And you are n[F]ow of my exis[G]tence,
You're part of t[C]hat which still r[Am]emains.
And you're l[F]ingering like f[G]ingered strings,
I seem to c[C]all on to feel the [Am]pain.
On r[C]ed violi[G]ns? on r[C]ed viol[G]ins.
And if you [Am]wanna, then you [F]wanna.
Can't you [C]see me crawling at your f[G]eet?
You see me h[Am]owling now, I'm foaming a[F]t the mouth.
Come on and g[C]rieve for my di[G]sease?
And there were r[Am]ed v[F]iol[C]ins[G] playing in my [Am]dream[F]s.[C] [G]
There were [Am]red [F]vio[C]lin[G]s playing in my d[Am]reams[F].[C] [G]
There were [Am]red [F]vio[C]lin[G]s.
There were [Am]red [F]vio[C]lin[G]s.
There were [Am]red [F]vio[C]lin[G]s.
There were [Am]red [F]vio[C]lin[G]s playing in my dr[C]eams.
