Bright Lanterns  The Tallest Man on Earth

Capo on 6 to sound like album version. These are basic chords, but picking can be worked
out if you listen the the track a bit.
Intro C Am F G
Well we air clear blue a[C]ching skies in the morning aft[Am]er,
and memories of g[F]old on the run, flying a[G]round,
was there a drunken [C]cloud over someone just [Am]empty,
a vision of a moun[F]tain you say, so where did i[G]t go?
It was [G7]light and i [Am]held it like a c[F]hild to be sav[G]ed
from th[G7]e fires and from the [Am]falling down sat[F]ellites
but still w[G]ondering
"Da[C]mn you always tr[F]eat me like a st[C]ranger, [Am]mountain
[Em]though you've seen the s[Am]hadow between the [F]city and what is[G] mine,
and fallen k[C]ids all rising [F]men among their l[C]ogs, but le[Am]avers,
[Em]suddenly [Am]darker in their e[F]yes and their broken s[G]miles,
[G]it's only what these kids will haul ar[C]ound."
[C] [Am] [F] [G]  
Well there's a lot of su[C]llen land for hungry feed of a[Am]nswers,
and medicine for b[F]alancing things, like seeing your g[G]hosts,
So thank god we're br[C]ight, said the lanterns bro[Am]ther,
cause I don't know a t[F]hing about boats or the land I [G]see
[G7]It was day and I s[Am]tood there once a[F]gain climbing qu[G]ick
[G7]when I knew you were the[Am] one throwing dying [F]stars on our gat[G]hering
but he said
[C]"Damn you always t[F]reat me like a moun[C]tain, str[Am]anger
[Em]though I have ne[Am]ver seen your s[F]hadows or fading li[G]ghts,
I'm just a r[C]ock that you'll be [F]picking up through[C] all your a[Am]ges,
[Em]always bel[Am]ieving there's a c[F]anyon for every b[G]lind,
[G]it's only what these kids will haul ar[C]ound."
[C]ti[Am]ll [F]yo[G]u get bored
