Far From Any Road  The Handsome Family

The Handsome Family - "Far From Any Road" from their album "Singing bones" (2003)
Also the official theme song of HBO series "True Detective"
[Am]From the dusty [E]May sun her [Dm]looming shadow [Am]grows
[Am]Hidden in the b[E]ranches of the [Dm]poison creos[Am]ote
[C]She twines her spines up slowly
To[G]wards the boiling sun
And [Dm]when I touched her skin
My [F]fingers ran with blood
[Am]In the hushing [E]dusk under a [Dm]swollen silver [Am]moon
[Am]I came walking [E]with the wind to [Dm]watch the cactus [Am]bloom
And [C]strange hands halted me, the l[G]ooming shadows danced
I [Dm]fell down to the thorny brush and [F]felt the trembling hands
[Am]When the last light [E]warms the rocks
And the [Dm]rattlesnakes un[Am]fold
[Am]Mountain cats will [E]come to [Dm]drag away your [Am]bones
And [C]rise with me forever
A[G]cross the silent sand
And the [Dm]stars will be your eyes
And the [F]wind will be my hands
