                             LIGHT POLLUTION - Bright Eyes

Tabbed by: John Morisi
Email: johnmorisi@aim.com

This is my favorite song by Bright Eyes, and I couldn't believe that not a single 
person had the chords correct on the internet. It's a very simple song, only 5 chords. 

Tuning: Standard

Capo Second Fret

F                         C               
   John A. Hobson was a good man
G                                 Am
   He used to loan me books and mic stands
F                         C
   He even got me a subscription
   To the Socialist Review
F                                 C
   Listening to records in his basement
G                              Am
   Old folk songs about the government
F                                  C
   It's love of money not the market
   He said, "These fuckers push on you"

                 F                C
   And freedom yells, it don't cry
                F            Am
   Whatever sells will decide
                  F               Am
   But there's no hell when you die
   So don't look so worried

   He got a nightlife, lost his day job
   Pushing papers, swinging pendulums
   Anything to serve a function
   Or to occupy some time
   You've got to earn this living somehow
   You're good as dead without a bank account
   But it's funny how alive he felt 
   Down in that unemployment line

   With all that trash at his feet
   The pools of piss in the street
   All of that filthy empathy
   For the way we're feeling

Em                  Am                        G
   The billboard's shade, the flags, they wave
   The anthem was playing loud
Am             C              F            G               
   The baseball game was letting out
Em            Am                  G
   And all at once he saw the dust
   And heard every tiny sound
Am           C                     F          G
   Got in his truck and turned around

   Drove out through the...

   F               C
   Crowd and the cops 
                      F        C
   Drove out past that center mall
                        F            C
   Drove out past that sickening sprawl
                 F             C
   Out past that fenced in gold
                F           C
   And maybe he lost control
                    F       C
   Fucking with the radio
                  F               Am             G
   But I bet the stars seemed so close at the end
          F        C
   At the end
          F        C 
   At the end
          F        C
   At the end
          F        C
   At the end   

End on F.
