Truckstop Cassettes  Portastatic


Truckstop Cassettes - Portastatic

Tabbed by: Jeff
intro: Cm7 F

[Cm7]Shot from the green cannon of [F]late spring
[Cm7]The map on your lap un[F]folding
[Cm7]Some states don't rave(?) [F]in a blur
[Cm7]Toothpaste across your reflection in [F]muddy water
[Cm7]We had truckstop cassettes and [F]Liza Ks and Patsy Cline
[Cm7]Send "Strange" in the desert [F]every night at nine
[Cm7]Purple light on your face [F]in the canyon at dusk
[Cm7]I thought I might as well go b[F]lind[Cm7]
I thought I [F]might as well go blind
[Bb]I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Bb]I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Bb]Then they lie to [Cm7]you in your head [Ab]that our language [Eb]can't capture it [Bb]all
But I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Cm7]Slept all night in the [F]dry scrub
[Cm7]Crawled from the thicket with a [F]new love
[Cm7]Sleep in our eyes and I pulled a [F]bug off your back
[Cm7]You said "Leave me alone. Just let [F]nature attack us"
[Cm7]We had truckstop cassettes of Smokey [F]Robinson and Kinks
[Cm7]The tape hit the player just as [F]we hit Cruisers Creek
[Cm7]Our time was turning dusty y[F]ellow but the [Cm7]sun on your forehead shone [F]pink
[Cm7]I thought the worst was[F] over
Just goes to [F]show I shouldn't think
[Bb]I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Bb]I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Bb]They made me [Cm7]desperation [Ab]down this road and [Eb]just down this hall [Bb]but
I thought my [Cm7]eyes had seen it [F]all
[Cm7] [F] [G] [Bb]  
The [Bb]tape ate the [Cm7]player ate the tape ate [Ab]me
The tape ate the [Eb]player ate the tape ate [Bb]me
The tape ate the [Cm7]player ate the tape ate [Ab]me[Eb]
[Bb]I promised you the [Cm7]best: a sparkling mi[Ab]rage at worst, a [Eb]sea to another
shining [Bb]sea
The tape ate the [Cm7]player ate the tape ate [Ab]me[Eb] [Bb]
