Title Track  Okkervil River

Capo 4
[C] [G] [Am]  
[F] [C] [G]  
[F] [C] [Am] [G]  
[C]All of the s[G]tage names ev[Am]aporate
And it's just a bl[F]ood-flushed and he[C]art-rushing r[G]ace
Either to k[F]ick off too so[C]on or st[Am]ick around too late, to be fa[F]r too
dear or too cut-r[G]ate
Hold my h[Am]and again
Like at the l[G]ake
Hold that mi[Am]rror, babe
Up to my f[G]ace
Hear the wh[Am]ippoorwill?
Am I br[F]eathing still?
[C] [G] [Am]  
[F] [C] [G]  
[F] [C] [Am] [G]  
[C]A Hollywood B[G]abylon bi[Am]ke-a-thon for breakdancers
[F]All broken [C]down in their [G]beds
[F]Now intrav[C]enously f[G]ed
[F]From a bag hanging [C]over their h[G]eads
Can I put you d[Am]own for some miles?
What do you s[G]ay?
Cause don't you kn[Am]ow, it's going to be a long, long w[G]ay
But if you've g[Am]ot the cash
I'm ready to b[F]ust my ass
[C] [G] [Am]  
[F] [C] [G]  
[F] [C] [Am] [G]  
So, t[C]ake this thin br[G]oken down c[Am]ircus clown reject and
G[F]ive her the n[C]ame of a q[G]ueen
Don't I k[F]now her from t[C]he mezzan[G]ine?
She didn't l[F]ook like n[C]o princess to [G]me
But with the proper w[Am]ords
And with her m[Am]orning shoot
Her evening cl[G]othes
Don't call her a pr[Am]ostitute
Well, she ain't one of th[G]ose
Just call her a pr[Am]oper little statue
Come unfr[F]oze
[C] [G] [Am]  
[F] [C] [G]  
[F] [C] [Am] [G]
