Verse I
G^ C Em
Ah, the holes of highway bones are filled
But the [Am]tolls of highway [F]loans are billed[Fm]
To the [Dm]board of [C]directors of [F]boredom, [Dm7]here
So I [C]slept outside the [Em]worried exit
And [Am]hurried to [F]avoid the dec[Fm]repit
[Dm]Hordes of fallen [C]Lords, I cant [F]afford em, [Dm7]dear
Verse II
But [C]overwhelmed is a [C7]laughing word
[F]To say youve taken for [G]granted stillness
[Dm]On an [C]ever-moving [F]planet[Dm7]
[C]Was the glaciers [C7]falling heard
[F]Was the crumbling porchs [G]utter realness
[Dm]Made of [C]ash or made of [F]granite[Fm]
Verse III
Oh, [Am]Im so longing for my [Em]mamas kiss
And [Dm]scratching my old [C]lifetimes back
[F]That simpleminded [Fm]tenderness
[C]Is a pity that my [A7]searches lack
The [Am]graveyard breathes [Em]reality
But [Dm]realitys blurred out[C]side my gates
[F]No matter if I [Fm]hesitate,
Chorus
The [C]foggy lilac [B/C]windows come
And [Cm7]dumb my number o[G]ne am[Dm7]bition[F/D]...
And its too much repi[C]tition
Cycle through the verse chords regularly: Some added licks he does.

Verse IV
The [C]south was knee-deep [Em]in the weeds
And [Am]I was in a [F]plank-wood parlor[Fm]
[Dm]Every flame from [C]every mouth was [F]only worth a [Dm7]dime
[C]Feeling easier to move than [Em]shifting reeds
I was [Am]wearing my times [F]on my collar[Fm]
[Dm]But my colors [C]dont get bright in [F]seasons [Dm7]time
Verse V
[C]Your biggest grid did [C7]shrink and sink
[F]In one nights [G]walk of blindness
[Dm]To [C]foreign sites where [F]bright lights find you [Dm7]out
[C]When evolution [C7]is extinct
And [F]lurking is a [G]fossils kindness
[Dm]And theres [C]no one left under our [F]sun to sign you [Fm]out
Verse VI
And the [Am]piano strings are [Em]damp and deep
And the [Dm]honky-tonk is [C]breaking free
And the [F]second-grader [Fm]that you keep
[C]Beneath your skin is [A7]next to me
[Am]Ah, who likes, who [Em]plays these games
And [Dm]who is clutching [C]to the reins
Cause [F]I scurried [Fm]open plains
Chorus II
And [C]the foggy lilac [B/C]windows come
And [Cm7]dumb my number [G]one am[Dm7]bition[F/D]...
And it's too much compe[C]tition

Verse VII - Listen to the song to hear how to play this verse
And that bleached [C]canal was rare
And [B/C]Ma was there
And [Am]no one dared to [G]care [Dm7] (about tomorrow)
The [C]road is bare
I [B/C]go nowhere
And [Am]all the joy that [G]I'm aware[Dm7] (is food for sorrow)
The [C]loft upstairs is [B/C]unprepared
The [Am]billboard fields are [G]stoned in pairs[Dm7]
The [C]gravel layers and [B/C]river dares
And the [Am]air is very [G]weary[Dm7]
(end with a verse)
