Pretty Eyes  Silver Jews

Album: The Natural Bridge
Song: Pretty Eyes
Tabbed by: D.C. Berman
(Verse)
[G] [D] 
Everybody wants perspective from a hill
[Am] [G] [D] 
But everybody's wants can't make it past the window sill
[G] [D] 
I can see you in your room at night, pictures on your wall
[Am] 
Little forest scenes and high school halloweens
[G] [D] 
But they don't come to you, they don't come to you at all
[G] [D] 
All houses dream in blueprints, our houses dream so hard
[Am] [G] [D] 
Outside you can see my shoeprints, I've been dreaming in your yard
(Chorus)
[E] [Am] 
One of these days these days will end
[E] [Am] 
Through the kitchen window the light will bend
[E] [Am] 
You'll be carving a pumpkin with a knife
[E] [G] [D] 
When someone at the table says "That's not what I call a life!"
(Verse)
The elephants are so ashamed of their size
Hosing them down I tell them "You got pretty eyes"
When I was younger I used to make like I was a cowboy
I'd set my dog before a hoop and say "Now boy! Now boy!"
(Chorus)
When the governor's heart fails the state bird falls from its branch
Icicles on hell's higher hills
Meanwhile back home at the ranch
I still get up early in the morning and I never knew a better place
(Verse)
I believe that stars are the headlights of angels
Driving from heaven to save us, to save us
Look at the sky, they're driving from heaven into our eyes
Final words are so hard to devise
I promise that I'll always remember your pretty eyes, your pretty eyes
[play E major cbord over and over, tben A major a few times tben E minor]
