First Night  The Hold Steady

Song: First Night
Standard Tuning
Tabbed by: Johan Persson
Em Am G D x3
[Em] [Am] [D]  
[G]Charlemagne [Am]shakes in the [C]streets
[G]Gideon makes [Am]love to the s[C]uites
and H[Em]olly's not in[Am]vincible
in f[F]act she's in the h[C]ospital
not [Em]far from that b[Am]ar where we m[D]et
on that [Em]first night[Am] [G] [D]
Em Am G D x3
[Em] [Am] [D]  
[G]Charlemagne pulls s[Am]treet corner s[C]cams
and G[G]ideon's got a [Am]pipe made from a P[C]ringles can
H[Em]olly's ins[Am]atiable, she [F]still looks in[C]credible
But she [Em]don't look like that [Am]same girl we [D]met
on that [Em]first night[Am]
when she was g[G]olden with f[D]loorlight and be[Em]er[Am] [G] [D]
on that [Em]first night[Am]
she s[G]lept like she'd n[D]ever been s[Em]cared[Am] [D]
Piano Solo
And then [Em]last night[Am]
She said "W[G]ords alone n[D]ever could sav[Em]e us."[Am] [G] [D]
And then [Em]last night[Am]
She c[G]ried and she t[D]old us about J[Em]esus[Am] [D]
[Em]Holly's incon[Am]solable
[F]Unhinged and uncon[C]trollable
'Cause we c[Em]an't get as h[Am]igh as we g[D]ot
on that first night
D Em C x3
[D]Boys[Em] and [C]girls in America x5
... Em
Don't bother talking to the guys
with their [C]hot soft [D]eyes
you know they're a[Em]lready [C]taken[D]
Don't even speak to all those s[Em]equencer and [C]beats boys[D]
when they k[Em]iss they spit [C]white noise (W[D]hite Noise) x7
Gorgeous song, enjoy.
