Bright Eyes - "Poison Oak"
('I'm Wide Awake It's Morning', 2005)

Tabbed by Hal

A               Dsus2
A               Dsus2


A                             Dsus2
Poison oak, some boyhood bravery
       A                                Dsus2
When the telephone was a tin can on a string 
     F#m                                            E
And I fell asleep with you still talking to me
                       A              Dsus2
You said you weren't afraid to die

A       Dsus2

    A                                       Dsus2
In polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
        A                                           Dsus2
Were you made ashamed, why'd you lock them in the drawer? 
   F#m                                    E
Well I don't think that I ever loved you more


Than when you turned away
When you slammed the door
          A                          Dsus2
When you stole a car drove, towards Mexico 
          A                       Dsus2
And you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm
       F#m                     E
I was young enough, I still believed in war

A       Dsus2
A       Dsus2

[Verse 2]

E                                    F#m
But let the poets cry themselves to sleep
E                                                 F#m
And all their tearful words would turn back into steam

               A                Dsus2
But me, I'm a single cell on a serpent's tongue
               A                   Dsus2
And there's a muddy field where a garden was
And I'm glad you got away 
But I'm still stuck out here
                F#m                    E                
My clothes are soaking wet from your brother's tears

A               Dsus2
A               Dsus2


E                                       F#m
And I never thought this life was possible
E                                               F#m 
You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for

              A                Dsus 2
The end of paralysis I was a statuette 
          A                  Dsus2
Now I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
            A                     Dsus2
And when I press the keys it all gets reversed
              F#m                E
The sound of loneliness makes me happier

A               Dsus2
A               Dsus2
A               Dsus2
A               Dsus2

Yeah, sorry about that -- typo. I've updated it, thanks. I also changed the Dsus to a Dsus2.
