Intro: D  D  D  D

Verse:
           D           D
a dustland fairytale beginning,
             A                  G
just another white trash county kiss.
          D               D                D     D
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.
D                           D
  He looked just like you'd want him to
             A                     G
some kind of slick chrome American prince.
  A             Bm         Bm              G          G
a blue jean serenade, Moon River, what you do to me.
    E                    E
But I don't believe you.

Chorus:
D           D               Gmaj7
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
        Gmaj7
she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands,
             D
he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D                       Bm
  I saw the minute that I turned away,
         A                 D      D
I got my money on a palm tonight.

Verse:
    D                 D
The change came in disguise of
    A              G
revelation set his soul on fire.
    D               Gmaj7           D       D
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        D            D
And the decades disappear like sinking
Bm                  Bm
ships that we persevere.
             G                  G
God gives us hope, but we still fear,
         D         D
we don't know, the mind is poison.
Bm               Bm                G           G
  Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalised.
    E                      E
The drawBridge is closing.

Chorus:
D           D               Gmaj7
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
        Gmaj7
she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands,
             D
he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D                           Bm
  I saw the ending when they turned the page,
           A                 D
I threw my money and I ran away.
                D                      A
Straight to the valley of the great divide.

Bridge:
A                          D
  Out where the dreams all hide,
D                          G
  out where the wind don't blow.
G                         Bm
  Out here the good girls die,
Bm                  D
  and the sky won't snow.
D                         G
  Out here the bird don't sing,
G                          G
  out here the field don't grow.
G                         Bm
  Out here the bell don't ring,
B7                        E       E7
  out here the bell don't ring.
G     G                         D
        Out here the good girls die.

Outro:
          D                    Gmaj7
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep,
            Gmaj7
it's such a bitter form of refuge.
A              A                        D
  Oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege?
    D
And everybody needs you.
G                D                     Bm
  Is there still magic in the midnight sun?
           A                       D
Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       D                        G
In the cadence of a young man's eyes,
G                           D
  and where the dreams roll high.
