Mexico City  Jolie Holland

I found a live recording of Mexico City and followed along
capo on V
[F]C [133211]-32010
Am 002210
G 320001
intro: C F
[Gm]Jack and E[C]die ly[Am]ing across my be[F]d
[Gm]Flying hi[C]gh like the sp[Am]irits of the de[F]ad
The [C]living and the [F]dead
The [C]living and the [F]dead
Our Lady of [C]Sorrows and the [Am]long dark [F]night
[Gm]How many ca[C]ndles could I light
For the [C]living and the [F]dead
The [C]living and the [F]dead[G]
What's that black smoke [C]rising Jack
Is the [Am]world on [F]fire[G]
What's that distant [C]singing
Is it a [F]heavenly choir
The [C]living and the [F]dead
The [C]living and the [F]dead
I think [C]about you Jack, [Am]watching the [F]tv
[G]And drinking bo[C]oze
Shame on [F]you, shame on me
[G]But how can we he[C]lp it
There was [F]no where else to go
[G]I sent Julie and Billy out on that lo[F]ng hard road
on that [C]long hard [F]road
on that [C]long hard [F]road
[F]I'm just back from Mexico [C]city
I came back north to [Am]Texas
[F]To rest my weary head
My true love is fresh from the [C]battle field
[F]Sewing up the [C]dying and [Am]carting off the dead
My baby don't stand for [C]no fighting
Amongst the [Am]living and the d[F]ead
[F] [C] [Am] [F] [G] [C] [Am] [F]  
[F]What's that black smoke [C]rising Jack
Is the [Am]world on [F]fire
[G]What's that distant [C]singing
Is it a [Am]heavenly [F]choir
The [C]living and the [F]dead (repeat)
optional: When switching from C to F and F to C on "living and the dead" take the
on the first fret off for a beat before switching
