The Red Door  The Handsome Family

[C] [Dm] [Em] [Dm] [C]  
[Verse 1] 
[C]You appeared upon the wh[Dm]ite shore
[Em]on a d[Dm]ark and moonless [C]eve
[C]I led you through the st[Dm]one gate,
[Em]torches sp[Dm]itting in t[C]he breeze[C/B] [Am]
[Am]All around our palace gl[Em]istened[Eb],
[Dm]splashed with waves from the s[Am]ea, [Em]
but [Dm]you shone bright as a th[C]ousand suns
in your g[G]own of iv[C]ory
[Verse 2] 
[C]One thing, I ask of y[Dm]ou, my love
[Em]as I c[Dm]omb your white-g[C]old hair
[C]Only stay your hand from the r[Dm]ed door,
[Em]the red d[Dm]oor beneath t[C]he stairs[C/B] [Am]
[Am]The red door un[Em]der the stairs,[Eb]
[Dm]the red door under the st[Am]airs [Em]
[Dm]Stay your hand from that [C]old, black lock
There's n[G]othin[G7]g to see in th[C]ere
C Dm Em Dm C (x2)
[Verse 3] 
[C]Why do you stand so many h[Dm]ours
[Em]staring [Dm]out across t[C]he sea?
[C]Why do you slip out past the b[Dm]lack drapes
[Em]when I pret[Dm]end that I'm asl[C]eep?[C/B] [Am]
[Am]And even in the br[Em]ight sun[Eb]
[Dm]as we walk the bone-white b[Am]eac[Em]h
[Dm]You put your ear to the wh[C]ispering shells
and t[G]urne[G7]d away from m[C]e
[Verse 4] 
[C]Red in your dress's h[Dm]em tonight,
[Em]a red fl[Dm]ash in your roving e[C]ye
[C]Why the tremor in your s[Dm]oft hands
[Em]when I p[Dm]ull you to m[C]y side?[C/B] [Am]
[Am]The red door and what's [Em]inside[Eb],
[Dm]the red door and all it h[Am]ides [Em]
[Dm]Stare away across the [C]ocean waves,
but I kn[G]ow[G7] what you've seen t[C]onight
[C] [Dm] [Em] [Dm] [C]
