E            F#*         G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
       /B Cmaj7           /B C 
and she locked the car and slipped past
D        riff      C   Am     Asus4 Am   Bm F#
into rhythmic quietude lights bur - ning
      Am   /B  C
voice dry and hoarse
E            F#*                G*
i threw the screen door like a bastard back and forth
  /B Cmaj7     /B C         D
the chimes fell over each other
     riff       C
i fell onto my knees
                 Am  Asus4   Am  Bm F#          Am  /B C
the sound of the car driving off       made me feel diseased
E      G                  Am 
a sick shouting like you hear at the fairground
E               G          Am
now i'm picking up to put away anything of your's that's still around
E         G                         Am
i don't know what to do with your clothes or your letters
       E      D              C  /B /C /G /F# /F
it'll make a whisper out of you
E            F#*        G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
     /B Cmaj7
the fairground's lit
    /B  C       D           riff             C
a drunk man sits by the gate she's driving through
        Am        Asus4  Am  Bm  F#     Am    /B   C
got his hat tipped bot - tle back  in between his teeth
E      F#*       G*                       /B Cmaj7
looks like he's buried in the sand at the beach
      /B C               D            riff           C
i can't think about you driving off to leave barely awake
    Am   Asus4  Am  Bm F#           Am  /B  C
to take a lit - tle nap  while the road is straight
E            G      Am
i wish that car had never been discovered
      E             G              Am
they took away the bottle and the hat he was under
E           G             Am
that's the one thing that he could never do
           E      D              C /B /C /G /F# /F
and it'll make a whisper out of you
E            F#*        G*
she took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
/B Cmaj7          /B C
  cops were running around the scene
D           riff          C
looking for some kind of clue
      Am  Asus4 Am   Bm   F#        Am   /B   C
they never get  up - tight  when a moth gets crushed
E        F#*                G*
unless a light bulb really loved him very much
/B Cmaj7         /B C
  i'm lying down
D        riff             C
blowing smoke from my cigarette
        Am    Asus4 Am Bm  F#            Am /B  C
little whisper smoke  signs  that you'll never get
E              G          Am
you're in your oldsmobile driving by the moon
E           G             Am
headlights burning bright ahead of you
    E                  G          Am
and someone's burning out, out on condor ave
           E     D               C /B /C /G /F# /F
trying to make a whisper out of you
E               G       
what a shitty thing to say
Am
did you really mean it?
    E             G          Am
you never said a word to me about what passed between us
E                   G
so now i'm leaving you alone
        Am
you can do whatever the hell you want to
E   D                   C  /B /C /G /F# /F E
