Nightbirds  Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams ? Nightbirds
I just heard this song and WOW, another great Ryan Adams tune. This one is fairly easy to
play. I use open power chords to play this song but you can use basic chords. Please leave
a good rating, thanks!
Tune down to half step.
[A] [C] [F] [G] [D]  

Intro: A, C, F, G, A, C, F
[A]Out under the [C]stars dodging them l[F]ike cars, [G]baby
Cause [A]when you gotta [C]move, you gotta mov[F]e
[(G)] What[A]ever that it [C]was you were [F]thinking of [G]baby
[A]You certainly not [C]thinking of that [F]now
And [D]night birds [G]singing An [D]empty [G]tune
In an [D]empty [G]house, in an [D]empty [A]room
An [D]empty [G]moment Oh the [D]nightbirds [G]singing
We were [A]supposed to rise [C]above But we[(F)] sink
Into the [A]ocean[C] [F] [G] [A] [C] [F]
[A]I feel like [C]a body [F]stuffed into a [G]trunk
From the [A]million years of [C]lying and getting [F]drunk
[(G)] The [A]people here [C]inside me they are [F]loud and in the [G]night
They [A]scream and smash the [C]windows when they [F]fight
And [D]nightbirds [G]singing An [D]empty [G]tune
In an [D]empty [G]house, in an [D]empty [A]room
And [D]empty [G]feelings when it [D]comes too [G]soon
We were [A]supposed to rise [C]above[F]
We were [A]supposed to rise [C]above
But we [F]sink
Into the [A]ocean[C] [F] ([G]x4)
