Small Talk Relations Tift Merritt
by Tift Merritt on "Traveling Alone"
Ok, so she plays this on piano but if you want the chords for guitar here they are
as I've figured them:
(No capo). All chords in song= C, Am, A#, F, Em. *Note: add fun walk-downs in
between chords for that bluesy feel.
[C]Skipped a stone and wa[Am]tched it go
[C]the arc and then the und[Am]ertoe
[C]thinking a day is [Am]something like a[Em] prayer[F]
So much to ask you started soft
Then the wait of locks come off
In the end you just hope someone's there
Cuz all these sm[C]all t[Em]alk rel[F]ations
No they ain't not[C]hin[Em]' for m[F]e
No nobody he[C-Em]re kn[A#]ows the [F]way that I fe[C]el
There's no one to answer to
Just the dark and me and you
All the angels standin' round just wishin'
For the drag there of your smoke
Taste of skin, scent of hope
Raise their skirts up when no words are rising
Small Talk relations
I can't hear one thing from you
Don't nobody here at all know the way that I feel
[G]Workman in the street below
[C]Softly play a radio
[G]Hear my static through the [C]traffic
[A#]Crowd just turns to leave
[F]Secret current underneath
[Em]Cannot be heard above the r[C]acket
Enjoy! Tift is awesome!
