My Rights Versus Yours  The New Pornographers
The only tricky thing about this song is that some chords aren't held
as long as you'd think. Watch out for the Gm to Bb on ‘truth in one
free afternoon’ and there’s a bunch of half measure changes near the
end at ‘my right versus your right versus.’ By the way, I have no idea
if those are the lyrics, so if you know the lyrics, help me out.
[F]Under the wheels the hope will spring
Mi[Am]rages lost a few more things
You [Dm]left your sorrow dangling
It [Bb]hangs in the air like a [C]school cheer
[F]From black notes inside the chords
On e[Am]very wall inflections coughed
[Dm]Deepest lakes and darkest stars
Re[Bb]member we were the [C]volunteers. [Bb] Oooooo
[Am]Courts knew this and [Bb]nothing more Ooooo
[Am]Now it’s my rights [Bb]versus yours[F]
[F]Under your wheels your hopeless reign
[Am]You fall too hard were up to late
With [Dm]hands suspended from the heights
Un[Bb]til it’s safer to [C]walk here
[F]Under your wheels your chances win
The [Am]easy call, the call off search
The [Dm]medicine, it still won’t work
But [Bb]there’s dangerous levels of [C]it here [Bb] Ooooo
( Tab from: )
[Am]Same thing as the [Bb]other time
But [Am]now it’s your rights [Gm]versus mine
The [Bb]truth in one free after[F]noon[Gm]
The [Bb]truth in one free after[F]noon
[C]Under my wheels the [Dm]chances help
It [Am]gave me to save if [Bb]from myself
The [C]spectacles painted [Dm]with my shaking [Bb]hand
[C]Fingers and paints if [Dm]paints we brought
[Am]Thinking we’d be even [Bb]when we’re not
[C]Flying the flags of [Dm]new empires in [Bb]rags
Gm Bb F x4
A new empire in rags. The truth in free afternoon x4
[F]Under their wheels the fencers and start
A [Am]time to dabble in the arts
To [Dm]teach the packs dogs in charge
But [Bb]kid it’s always be[C]yond me
[F]Under the wheels the hope will spring
The [Am]rashes have lost a few more things
The [Dm]medicine it still won’t sing
But [Bb]there’s dangerous levels of [C]it here
[F] Ooo oo oo [Am]oo
[Dm]Your rights [C]versus my [Bb]rights [Am]versus[Gm]
[Eb]You came to my place. [F]Your rights versus my rights versus[Am]
[Dm]Your rights [C]versus my [Bb]rights [Am]versus[Gm]
[Eb]You came to my place. [F]Your rights versus my rights versus[Am]
F Am for the rest of the song. End on F
