Old College Try  The Mountain Goats

Thanks to Mike Walker for giving me a most of the chords. This has the stuff he omitted
Intro: A F#m D E D
[A] [F#m] [D] [E]  
[A]From the housetops to the [F#m]gutters
[D]From the oceans to the s[E]hores[D]
The [A]warning signs have all been bright and [F#m]garish
[D]Far to great in number to ig[E]nore
From the cities to the swamplands
From the highways to the hills
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils
But I will [D]walk[E] down to the [A]end with [D]you
If you will [A]come all the way [E]down with [A]me
From the entrance to the exit
Is longer than it looks from where we stand
I wanna say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet
Things will shortly get completely out of hand
I can feel it in the rotten air tonight
In the tips of my fingers in the skin on my face
In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light
In the way those eyes I've always loved illuminate this place
Like a [D]trashcan fire in a [E]prison cell
Like the [A]searchlights in the [F#m]parking lots of hell
I will [D]walk[E] down to the [A]end with [D]you
If you will [A]come all the way [E]down with [A]me
