Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.

King's Crossing  Elliott Smith

When Elliott played this he put his capo on the 6th, that is because his guitar was
a whole step down. So if you do not normally play Elliott Smith songs and don't keep your
tuned down a whole step, capo it on the 4th. If you do play a lot of Elliott Smith and
keep your guitar tuned down a whole step, capo at the 6th!

Capo 4
[F#m]The king's crossing was the main[D] attraction
[A]Dominoes are fal[E]ling in a chain [Bm]reaction
[F#m]The scraping subject ruled by fe[D]ar
[A]Told me whiskey [E]works better tha[Bm]n beer
[F#m]The judge is on vinyl, decisions[D] are final
[A]And nobody gets [E]a reprie[Bm]ve
[F#m]And every wave is tidal[D]
[A]If you hang arou[E]nd, you're going[Bm] to get wet
[F#m]I can't prepare for death any mo[D]re than I alread[A]y have[E] [Bm]
[F#m]All you can do now is watch the [D]shells
[A]The game looks e[E]asy, that's why [Bm]it sells
[A]Frustrated fireworks [F#m]inside your head
[F#m]Are going to stand and deliver t[D]alk instead
[A]The method acting tha[F#m]t pays my bills
[F#m]Keeps the fat man feeding in Bev[D]erly Hills
[A]I got a heavy metal m[F#m]outh that hurls obscenity
[F#m]And I get my check from the tras[D]h treasury
[A]Because I took my own[F#m] insides out
[F#m]It don't matter 'cos I have no s[D]ex life
[A]And all I want t[E]o do now is inje[Bm]ct my ex-wife
[F#m]I've seen the movie and [D]I know what happ[A]ens[E] [Bm]
[F#m]It's Christmas time and the need[D]les on the tree
[A]A skinny Santa i[E]s bringing somet[Bm]hing to me
[F#m]His voice is overwhelming but hi[D]s speech is slurred
[A]And I only under[E]stand every othe[Bm]r word
[A]Open your parachute a[F#m]nd grab your gun
[F#m]Falling down like an omen, a set[D]ting sun
[A]Read the part and ret[F#m]urn at five
[F#m]It's a Hell of a role if you can[D] keep it alive
[A]But I don't care if I[F#m] fuck up, I'm going on a date
[F#m]With a rich white lady, ain't li[D]fe great?
[A]Give me one good reas[F#m]on not to do it (Because we love you)
[F#m]So do it[D]
[A] [E] [Bm]  
[Em] [C]  
[A] [E] [Bm]  
[F#m]This is the place where time rev[D]erses
[A]Dead men talk to[E] all the pretty [Bm]nurses
[F#m]Instruments shine on a silver tr[D]ay
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away[A]
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away[A]
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away.[Bm]
