Civil Twilight  The Weakerthans

Civil Twilight by the Weakerthans
For the riff parts (where it says F E D C G etc.) its easiest to play these all on the
string and move down.
My con[F]fusion corner commuters are cursing the [Bb]cold away
As D[F]ecember tries to dissemble the length of their [Bb]working day
And they [F]bite their mitts off to show me transfers, depo[Bb]sit change
and I ca[F]n't stop finding your face in their faces, all [Bb]rearranged
And a[C]ngry like you [C/C#]never were;
and I [F]ease us back into traffic
[Bb]Dusk comes on and I wonder
[F]Why I'm always remembering [Bb]you, in civil twilight
F E D C (try running down the power chords starting on 13)
(repeat pattern for verse/chorus)
For the most part I think about golfing and constantly calculate
all the seconds left in the minutes, and so on, etcetera
Or recite the names of provinces and Hollywood actors;
Oh, Ontario! Oh, Jennifer Jason Leigh!
This part of the day bewilders me
Streets slow down and ice over,
Dusk comes on and I struggle to stop,
To stop to stop thinking of you,in civil twilight
(run down the power chords) F5 E5 D5 C5 G5
[G5]Hey, every other hour I p[A5]ass that house,
Where you [B5]told me that you h[C5]ad to go[C/C#5]
[G5]I wonder if the landlord has f[Am5]ixed the crack,
That I [B5]stared at, instead of s[C5]taring ba[C/C#5]ck at
[F]you, My chance to say something s[Bb]eemed so breif, but it wasn't.
[F]Now I know I had plenty of [Bb]time
Between the su[F]nset and certified darkness
[Bb]Dusk comes on and I follow the [F]exhaust from memory up to the [Bb]end
The civil tw[F5]ili[E5]ght[D5] [C5] [Bb5]
The civil tw[F5]ili[E5]ght[D5] [C5] [Bb5]
The civil tw[F5]ili[E5]ght[D5] [C5] [Bb5]
The civil tw[F5]ili[E5]ght[D5] [C5] [F5]
