Four Winds
 

Capo 3rd fret


Intro: Em, C, G, Am, G, Am, C  x4

      Em                                          C 
Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe
         G                             Am
There's people always dying trying to keep them alive
     G                      Am
His body's decomposing in containers tonight
         C
In an abandoned building where

     Em                          C
A squatter's made a mural of a Mexican girl
      G                                Am
With fifteen cans of spray paint in a chemical swirl
       G                            Am
She's standing in the ashes at the end of the world
             C
Four winds blowing through her hair

                Am      D                 Am    D
But when great Satan's gone, the whore of Babylon
          C       G                  C           G
She just can't sustain the pressure where it's placed
     Am
She caves


Interlude: Em, C, G, Am, G, Am, C

     Em                                    C
The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qu'ran is mute
          G                                Am
If you'd burn them all together you'd get close to the truth still
          G                           Am
They're pouring over sanskrit on the ivy league moons
                C
While shadows lengthen in the sun

           Em                            C
Cast on a school of meditation built to soften the times
     G                               Am
And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds
       G                             Am
It's knocking over fences, crossing property lines
             C
Four winds, cry until it comes

              Am      D
And it's the song of man
                  Am     D
Slouching towards Bethlehem
              C       G                 C      G
A heart just can't contain all of that empty space
    Am         D
It breaks, it breaks, (it breaks)


Interlude: Em, C, Em, C, Em, C, D

              Em                         C
Well, I went back, I rent a Cadillac, a company jet
        G                        Am
Like a newly orphaned refugee, retracing my steps
        G                     Am
All the way to Cassadega to commune with the dead
                   C
They said, "You'd better look alive"

           Em                         C
And I was off to old Dakota where a genocide sleeps
         G                               Am
In the black hills, the bad lands, the calloused east
    G                   Am
I buried my ballast, I made my peace
                   C
With four winds, levelling the pines

                Am      D                 Am   D
But when great Satan's gone, the whore of Babylon
          C      G                   C     G
She just can't remain with all that outer space
     Am           D           Am        D
She breaks, she breaks, she caves, she caves.


End on: Em



If The Brakeman Turns My Way


Capo 4th fret


       G                             C                G
When panic grips your body and your heart is a hummingbird
 G                                               C           D
Raven thoughts blacken your mind until you're breathing in reverse
 Em                     D             G       D        C
All your friends and sedatives mean well but make it worse
 Em       C              Em            C
Every reassurance just magnifies the doubt
  Em            D        C        D      G
Better find yourself a place to level out

Em, D

        G                               C              G
Got a cricket for a conscience always looks the other way
    G                                  C       D
A cocaine soul starts seeming like an empty cabaret
       Em                 D                    G       D      C
Hey, where have all the dancers gone? Now the music doesn't play
           Em            C              Em                C
Tried to listen to the river but you couldn't shut your mouth
        Em      D      C       D      G
Better take a little time to level out
C                     G
I never thought of running
C                     D
My feet just led the way


G
Mixed up Signals

Bullet Train
G                            D

I could meet you any place
        D    C    D       G
If the Brakeman turns my way

Em, D

           G                        C           G
All this automatic writing I have tried to understand
          G                         C           D
From a psychedelic angel who was tugging on my hand
          Em         D                G      D      C
It's an infinite coincidence but it doesn't form a plan
         Em             C             Em           C
So I'm headed for New England or the Paris of the South
       Em    D       C           D      G
Gonna find myself somewhere to level out

Em, D

           G                               C         G
Are your brothels full, Oh Babylon, with merry Middlemen?
       G                                       C          D
Never peer out of their periscopes from those deep opium dens
           Em                   D                  G     D     C
All this death must need a counterweight always someone born again
         Em                 C             Em         C
First a mother bathes her child then the other way around
             Em     D     C       D      G
The Scales always find a way to level out

C                     G
I tried to pass for nothing
C                      D
But my dreams gave me away

G
Mixed up Signals
C
Bullet Train
G                          D
People snuffed out in the brutal rain
G               C
I could live to any age
        D    C   D        G
If the Brakeman turns my way

         Am                       D7
It is an old world it's hard to remember
        G            C
Like a dime store mystery
        Am                 D7
I'm a repeat first time offender
          C         D    (G)
Who has rewritten history

G
Mixed up tea leaves
C
Phantom Pain
G                   D
Fuzzy logic in the crazy rain
G               D
Getting better every day

If the Brakeman turns my way
G
Mixed up Signals

Bullet Train

Cars are switched out in the blinding rain

He'll be smiling as he seals my fate
          D    C    D       G
When the Brakeman turns my way

Soul Singer In The Session Band


Capo 1st fret

C F C C F G C F C F G F G C

C                                    F          C
See the soul singer in the session band
C                                         F                      G
Shredded to ribbons beneath the microphone stand
C                                    F          C
Felt the quickness of pity like a flash in a pan
F                 G                F       G     C
For the soul singer in the session band
(This chord progression is constant. So just keep playing it!)

Now a red carpet bagger makes a blackberry call
To the plastic pirhana in the city of salt
Wasted wheat paste campaign post no bills on the wall
You mean nothing to no one but that's nobody's fault

See the soul singer in the session band
Shredded to ribbons beneath the microphone stand
Felt the quickness of pity like a flash in a pan
For the soul singer in the session band

I had a lengthy discussion about the power of myth
With a postmodern author who didn't exist
In this fictitious world, our reality twists
I was a hopeless romantic, now I'm just turning tricks

Just like that soul singer in the session band
Shredded confetti beneath the microphone stand
Saw the conflicts of interest, slipping cash in the hand
Of the soul singer in the session band

Now his room is on fire since he painted it red
There's a stranger, silk sequins at the foot of the bed
He's been to weddings and funerals, but he still never wept
Now sorrow is pleasure when you want it instead

Just like our soul singer in the session band
Wailed like an infant atop a white baby grand
We'll need every sand bag and every man
To save the soul singer in the session band

C F C C F G C F C F G F G C

Headlights or taillights, it's a flip of a coin
I've been coming and going since the day I was born
And I followed the bread crumbs but I never got home
I grew old in an instant, now I'm all on my own

Just like that soul singer in the session band
Shredded to nothing beneath the microphone stand
Saw the wave of the future through the crack of the dam
Drowned the soul singer in the session band
F                 G                F       G     C
Bless the soul singer in the session band 



classic Cars


Capo 2nd fret

intro: G x4

           D                     G
She was a real royal lady, true patron of the arts
         Am                                B                G
Said the best country singers die in the back of classic cars
         D                         G
So if I ever got too hungry for a suitcase or guitar
D                    Am           D
To think of them all alone in the dark
      D                                G
So I laid some nights beside her in a bed made for a queen
Am                                            B               G
She said I kissed her different, that all the men her age were mean
D                                 G
Gave me anything I wanted, Oh the generosity
         D         Am            D
I took all that I could, it was free
         D                               G
Now the sky is a torn up denim and the clouds just splattered paint
       Am                          B            G
It’s a room I’m renovating; it’s a name I gotta change
          D                           G
If I get out of California I’m going back to my home state
             D          Am     D
To tell them all that I made a mistake

G
And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
Am
Lighting candles to a cynical saint
D                               Am                 B         G
Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
Am
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
D                      Am             B  G
From the panicked paradox of day to day
              D                              Am             B  G
If you can’t understand something then it’s best to be afraid

D                                         G
The whole world it loves you if you’re a chic chameleon
Am                                           B              G
Intersecting circles she could hang with anyone
           D                          G
But when conducting business she would lie about where she’s from
          D             Am           D
Saying, "Life is how it is not how it was"
D                                     G
I learned to listen felt like I was back at school
Am                                            B               G
She’d talk forever about the phases of the moon
           D                      G
Saying, "Everything is a cycle, you’ve got to let it come to you
D                 Am            D
And when it does, you will know what to do"
D                                      G
Without even knowing I guess I took up her advice
       Am                          B            G
Painted her front door it seemed a suitable goodbye
D                           G
It’s not that often but I think of her sometimes
                D        Am       D
Just something quaint, a couple ships in the night

G
And they keep moving at a glacial pace
Am
Turning circles in a memory maze
D                               Am                B         G
I made a new cast of the death mask that’s gonna cover my face
Am
I had to change the combination to the safe
         D            Am               B  G
Hide it all behind a wall let people wait
           Am                                    D      B  G
And never trust a heart that is so bent it can’t break

A train off in the distance, bicycle chained to the stairs

Everything it must belong somewhere

I know that now, that is why I'm staying here

Sound stage in California, televisions in Times Square

Everything it must belong somewhere

I know that now that is why I'm staying here

Just like the gold around her finger or the silver in his hair

No witnesses, no witnesses

Leave the old town drunk on his wooden stool

Leave the autumn leaves in their swimming pool

They locked the Devil in the basement, threw God up into the air

Lime Tree


             G                                         Bm
I keep floating down the river but the ocean never comes

 G                                                C
Since the operation I heard you're breathing just for one

        Am                                 D7
Now everything is imaginary, especially what you love

       Am                                        C                   G
You left another message said it's done, It's done

            G                                              Bm
When I hear beautiful music it's always from another time

        G                               C
Old friends I never visit, I remember what they're like

    Am                                     D7
Standing on a doorstep full of nervous butterflies

 Am                                      C                               G
Waiting to be asked to come inside  Just come inside

                Am                   D7
But I keep go-o-o-o-oing out

            Bm                  Am                     C
I can't sleep next to a stranger when I'm coming down

        B7                                        C                      G
It's 8 a.m. my heart is beating too loud,  Too loud

         D7                   Am          B7                  
          C
Don't be-e-e-e so ama-a-a-azing or I'll miss you too much

   B7                                            C
I felt something that I had never touched


G                                                   Bm
Everything gets smaller now the further that I go

                     G                                         C
Towards the mouth and the reunion of the Known and the Unknown

      Am                                   D7
Consider yourself lucky if you think of it as home

                          Am                                           
                      G
You can move mountains with your misery if you don't, If you don't

    G                                               Bm
It comes to me in fragments, even those still split in two

                G                                                      C
Under the leaves of that old Lime Tree I stood examining the fruit

                 Am                                             D7
Some were ripe and some were rotten, I felt nauseous with the truth

                 Am                                   C           G
There will never be a time more opportune


               Am        D7
So I just won't be late

                     Bm                    Am       C
The window closes, shock rolls over in a tidal wave

        B7                                         C           G
And all the color drains out of the frame

       D7                  Am      B7                             C
So pleased with a daydream that now living is no good

          B7                                                C
I took off my shoes and walked into the woods

         B7                                           C             G
I felt lost and found with every step I took
