Bright Eyes -- Classic Cars

I saw him play this on TV.
Capo at 2nd fret

intro: G x4

           D                     G
She was a real royal lady, true patron of the arts
         A7                                Bm                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                    A7           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
A7                                            Bm               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         A7            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
       A7                          Bm            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          A7     D
To tell them all that I made a mistake

G
And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
A7
Lighting candles to a cynical saint
D                               A7                 Bm         G
Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
A7
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
D                      A7            Bm  G
From the panicked paradox of day to day
              D                              A7            Bm  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
A7                                          Bm    G
Intersecting circles she could hang with anyone
           D                          G
But when conducting business she would lie about where she’s from
          D             A7           D
Saying, "Life is how it is not how it was"
D                                     G
I learned to listen felt like I was back at school
A7                                           Bm       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                 A7            D
And when it does, you will know what to do"
D                                      G
Without even knowing I guess I took up her advice
       A7                          Bm            G
Painted her front door it seemed a suitable goodbye
D                           G
It’s not that often but I think of her sometimes
                D        A7       D
Just something quaint, a couple ships in the night

G
And they keep moving at a glacial pace
A7
Turning circles in a memory maze
D                               A7                Bm        G
I made a new cast of the death mask that’s gonna cover my face
A7
I had to change the combination to the safe
         D            A7              Bm  G
Hide it all behind a wall let people wait
           A7                                    D     Bm  G
And never trust a heart that is so bent it can’t break
