Buenos Aires Beach  The War on Drugs

Buenos Aires Beach by The War on Drugs (off of Wagonwheel Blues)
Capo 6th
Intro: C Fmaj7 C Fmaj7 C Fmaj7 C Fmaj7
[C] [Fmaj7] [C] [G] [C]  
[C]My barricades feel open now
So I le[Fmaj7]ave behind the [C]bridge
With a flag with a western wave and a [Fmaj7]simple stitch t[C]o fix
I'll hold myself together now as you ta[Fmaj7]ke me through the [C]ditch
[C]Where the sky crumbled on the floors
[C]You'll sweep me off of my back
You'll sav[Fmaj7]e me from the rum[C]ble you spoke o[Fmaj7]f before
And the on[C]e who saved yo[Fmaj7]u
Ain't the[C] one who you were [Fmaj7]banking on
When your hi[C]ghs were cutti[G]ng through my [C]lows
Bridge: C Fmaj7 C Fmaj7
[C]Enter through the side door please
I know [Fmaj7]you wish to speak wi[C]th me
Of old neglected promises
Of s[Fmaj7]tolen souven[C]irs
How you could hear the ocean
But you cou[Fmaj7]ld not see the b[C]reeze
When the sky was setting on a Buenos Aires beach
And the sun was shin[Fmaj7]ing on the o[C]ne I wi[Fmaj7]sh to see
And the f[C]ates are [Fmaj7]shifting unde[C]r land
You're beatin[Fmaj7]g on the floors[C]
You're sle[Fmaj7]eping on the same [C]ones you've been[Fmaj7] sweeping on
You're the [C]one that saved [Fmaj7]me
And the on[C]e that I was ban[Fmaj7]king on
When your highs[C] were cutting [G]through my low[C]s
So hold m[Fmaj7]e up against the tree
Y[G]ou used to measure me in feet
And se[C]t your[Fmaj7] sights to gre[C]en
And [Fmaj7]all the cross-town boys and on
[G]They show up with the sea shells in their eye[C]s
Bu[Fmaj7]t you know what the[C]y want
[Fmaj7]By the glow of your skin
And you can overdress for him
But it will soon grow old[C] [Fmaj7]
Bridge: C Fmaj7 (x3)
[C]And this winter it came to[Fmaj7] pass
[C]So much slower than the la[Fmaj7]st
[C]And now there's nothing [Fmaj7]left to grasp
[G]In our hands and nothing left to catch
So they'll [C]speak of the p[Fmaj7]ast
In the futu[C]re perfect ten[Fmaj7]se
Of places we will go
Before we grow old[C] [Fmaj7]
Outro: C Fmaj7 (repeat as many as needed)
