Modest Mouse - Black Cadillacs
Tabbed By: Pseudo
Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)
Any place where I put "ect." just means that you play the same chords
from that section underneath different words that I didn't feel like
writing out.
And it's [G]true we named our children after [Am]towns
[Am]That we'd never been to
And it's [G]true that the clouds just hung around
Like [Am]Black Cadillacs outside a funeral
And we were [Am]done, done, done,
With all the [C]fuck, fuck, fuckin' around[G]
You were so [Am]true to yourself. You were [C]true to no one
'n that's why I should put you in the [G]ground
[Bb]I didn't die, and I ain't complaining
[F]I ain't blamin' [C]you[C/B]
[Am]I didn't know that the words you said to me
Meant more [C]to me than they ever could [C]you[G]
That's it.
