Conor Oberst And The Mystico Valley Band – Eagle On A Pole(v2)

This is the version that was released on the second album. It's a completely
different song to the one on the first album.

Intro:
Am|Am       |Am|Am          |F|Am
   e|-------    e|----------|
   B|-------    B|-/8\6-----|
   G|-------    G|-/9\7-5---|
   D|-----7-    D|--------7-|
   A|-7/9---    A|----------|
   E|-------    E|----------|

Verse1:
         F
I saw an eagle on a pole
  Am
I think it was an eagle
         F
Now that eagle has flown
         C
And I'll never know
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|----------|
D|----------|
A|-33-55-77-|
E|----------|

chorus 1:
F                          C
  Could have been a rotten apple
        G     F
Full of holes
                        C
Could have been an open wine bottle
         G
Ready to go
      Am              C          G
Or it could have been eagle on a pole

Verse 2:
         F
Well the beauty of the seasons
     Am
Can rip a man up whole
           F
And what's happening while you're sleeping
         C
You will never know
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|----------|
D|----------|
A|-33-55-77-|
E|----------|

Chorus 2:
F                     C
  Never trust a truly wayward
          G    F
Wandering soul
                     C
Never trust a wanted woman
              G
Who can't say no
        Am             C          G
And you never trust an eagle on a pole

Verse 3:
          F
I've seen pictures of my face from
        Am
Where I swear I did not go
            F
Looked like laughing, looked like stealing
           C
But I will never know

Chorus 3:
F                              C
  Looked like running, leaving tracks
                G    F
Through morning snow
                             C
Looked like darkness and the light
             G
Going toe to toe
       Am                  C          G
And it looked just like an eagle on a pole

Bridge 2:
F    E
Look out!
F    C                G                      Am
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
F    C              G                   Am
Eden come and we're crying we can't get out!
    C        G
Get out! Get out!

Verse 4:
          F
Something moving, something floating
          Am
Something falling soft en slow
       F
It was getting super natural
        C
But you never know

Chorus 4:
F                       C
  Getting ready for the girls
                 G     F
At the burlesque show
                      C
Getting ready for the night time
              G
Street lights glowing
    Am             C          G
Get ready for that eagle on a pole

Bridge 2:
F    E
Look out!
F    C                G                      Am
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
F    C                G                      Am
Evil come and there's nothing left to laugh about
F    C              G                   Am
Eden come and we're crying we can't get out!
    C        G
Get out! Get out!
