Bright Eyes - Landlocked Blues Chords

    D#0               A#1             D#2
0If you walk away, I'll walk away
      D#3            A#4               D#5
1First tell me which road you will take
    Cm6          A#7             D#8            Cm9
2I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
   D#10                   A#11               D#12
3So you walk that way, I'll walk this way
4
5
          D#13            A#14       D#15
6And the future hangs over our heads
       D#16                A#17       D#18
7And it moves with each current event
    Cm19         A#20             D#21           Cm22
8Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
     D#23                A#24           D#25
9Just stay in when it's looking this way
10
11
         D#26             A#27         D#28
12And the moon's laying low in the sky
         D#29          A#30       D#31
13Forcing everything metal to shine
          Cm32             A#33               D#34             Cm35
14And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
       D#36                   A#37            D#38
15They argue walk this way, now walk this way
16
17
       D#39         A#40         D#41
18And Laura's asleep in my bed
         D#42             A#43           D#44
19As I'm leaving she wakes up and says
     Cm45             A#46                   D#47        Cm48
20"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
      D#49               A#50          D#51
21Baby don't go away, come here"
22
23
            D#52            A#53         D#54
24And there's kids playing guns in the street
         D#55            A#56             D#57
25And ones pointing his tree branch at me
       Cm58          A#59         D#60                Cm61
26So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,
   D#62              A#63               D#64
27If you walk away, I'll walk away"
28
29And he shot me dead
30
31
Cm65      A#66    D#67
32I found a liquid cure
Cm68      A#69          D#70
33From my landlocked blues
      G#71   A#72          D#73     Cm74
34It'll pass away like a slow parade
     D#75         A#76              D#77
35It's leaving but I don't know how soon
36
37
         D#78          A#79         D#80
38And the world's got me dizzy again
                   D#81            A#82         D#83
39You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin
     Cm84         A#85             D#86          Cm87
40And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
                 D#88            A#89         D#90
41So I'm always pacing around or walking away
42
43
        D#91          A#92             D#93
44I keep drinking the ink from my pen
         D#94         A#95             D#96
45And I'm balancing history books up on my head
      Cm97      A#98             D#99          Cm100
46But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
      D#101              A#102         D#103
47If you love something, give it away
48
49
        D#104            A#105         D#106
50a good woman will pick you apart
       D#107          A#108                D#109
51a box full of suggestions for your possible heart
         Cm110      A#111             D#112          Cm113
52But you may be offended and you may be afraid
     D#114                A#115                D#116
53But don't walk away, don't walk away
54
55
          D#117          A#118          D#119
56We made love on the living room floor
            D#120          A#121                D#122
57With the noise in the background of a televised war
            Cm123      A#124                  D#125          Cm126
58And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
    D#127             A#128                 D#129
59"If we walk away, they'll walk away"
60
61
      D#130        A#131         D#132
62But greed is a bottomless pit
          D#133           A#134              D#135
63And our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss
         Cm136          A#137                D#138          Cm139
64And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
      D#140          A#141              D#142
65If you're still free start running away
66
67Cause we're coming for you!
68
69
            D#143        A#144         D#145
70I've grown tired of holding this post
      D#146           A#147             D#148
71I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
     Cm149     A#150         D#151       Cm152
72So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
      D#153          A#154     D#155
73Saying "let me walk away, please"
74
75
           D#156        A#157               D#158
76You'll be free child once you have died
          D#159          A#160             D#161
77From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
         Cm162      A#163                D#164       Cm165
78And then we can trade places, play musical grace
      D#166              A#167         D#168
79Till then walk away, walk away
80
81
Cm169      A#170    D#171
82So I'm up at dawn
Cm172      A#173    D#174
83Putting on my shoes
      G#175       A#176      D#177     Cm178
84I just want to make a clean escape
Cm179      A#180    D#181
85I'm leaving but I don't know where to
86
87I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to
