King's Crossing  Elliott Smith

King's Crossing
Capo: 1st Fret
[Am] [F]  
[C] [G] [Dm]  
[Am]The King's crossing was [F]the main attraction
[C]Dominoes fal[G]ling in a chain reac[Dm]tion
[Am]The scraping subject rul[F]ed by fear told me
[C]Whiskey work[G]s better than beer[Dm]
[Am]The judge is on vinyl, d[F]ecisions aren't final
[C]And nobody g[G]ets a reprieve[Dm]
[Am]And every wave is tidal[F]
[C]If you hang [G]around you're going [C]to get wet
[Am]I can't prepare for deat[F]h any more than I already have[C] [G] [Dm]
[Am]All you can do now is [F]watch the shelves
The [C]game looks [G]easy, that's [C]why it sells
[C]Frustrated fireworks [B/Am]inside your head
Are going [Am]to stand and deliver d[F]ark instead
[C]The method acting that [B/Am]pays my bills
Keeps the [Am]fat man feeding in Bev[F]erly Hills
[C]I got a heavy metal mouth, it [B/Am]hurls obscenity
And I get [Am]my check from [F]the trash treasury
[C]Because I took my own insides [B/Am]out
[Am]It don't matter cause I [F]have no sex life
And [C]all I wanna do [G]now is [Dm]inject my ex-wife
[Am]I've seen the movie
A[F]nd I know what happ[C]en[G]s[Dm]
[Am]It's Christmas time
And the [F]needle's on the tree
A [C]skinny Santa is [G]bringing [Dm]something to me
[Am]His voice is overwhelming
But his [F]speech is slurred
And I [C]only [G]understand [C]every other word
[C]Open your parachute and [B/Am]grab your gun
Float do[Am]wn like an omen, a setti[F]ng sun
[C]Read the part and return[B/Am] at five
It's a h[Am]ell of a role if you can[F] keep it alive
[C]But I don't care if I fuck up
[B/Am]I'm going on a date
[Am]With a rich white lady
[F]Ain't life great?
[C]Gi'me one good reason no[B/Am]t to do it
(Because I love you)
[Am]So do it.[F]
[C] [G] [Dm]  
[Am] [F]  
[C] [G] [Dm]  
[Am]This is the place where [F]time reverses
[C]And dead men tal[G]k to all the pre[Dm]tty nurses
[Am]Instruments shine on a s[F]ilver tray
[C]Don't let me get [G]carried away[C]
[C]Don't let me get [G]carried away[C]
[C]Don't let me be [G]carried [Dm]away
