Dead Faces  Okkervil River

Band: Okkervil River
Song: 'Dead Faces'
Album: "Down The River of Golden Dreams"
Really really simple song. I've never seen a correct tab for it though, so I thought I'd
it myself.
Standard tuning.
Walk up from Em to G in the chorus.
Intro: G
and we have fun ? we go l[C]aughing and r[G]unning
down to the [D]water, there by the [Am]sea[C]
where the [G]body just [C]floats like a [G]rowboat
and the m[D]oon?s like a harbor light [Am]lit in this[C] sky
and this p[Em]icture?s got a woman who l[G]ooks like you
and a [D]guy who looks just like [Am]someone I?ve [C]seen
when it [G]turns out - I [C]hope that it [G]turns out
I hope that it [D]turns out the [C]way that you [G]dreamed
[C] [G]  
embarcadero [C]train station?s [G]empty
and I [D]just cannot bel[Am]ieve how l[C]ong it takes
[G]all the way [C]home through the [G]city
and everyone?s [D]looking - least, it?s nice to be[Am]lieve everyone?s [C]looking
this [Em]picture?s got a woman who [G]looks like you
and a [D]guy who looks just like [Am]someone I?ve [C]seen
when it [G]turns out, I h[C]ope that it t[G]urns out
I hope that it [D]turns out the [C]way that you [G]dreamed
[C] [G]  
ghostly faces at my l[C]iving-room [G]window
they are not [D]scared of me 'cause they [Am]know I can?t [C]hurt them
they [G]press up and [C]see, in the [G]lamp-glow
all of the [D]hurt and the love in[Am]side of [C]me
it?s their [Em]final dut[C]y
to [Em]see right through [C]me
twelve [Em]hours 'til the [D]dawn
but we?ve [Am]got to hold [D]on, hold on to me...
because we?ll be [G]running
[C] [G] [D] [Am] [C]  
[G] [C] [G] [D] [Am] [C]  
[G]down to the [C]water this [G]morning
well, nobody [D]waits for you to bel[Am]ieve[C]
in [G]ghosts, lit by [C]moonlight or [G]dawning
or in this [D]picture of [C]you and [G]me
