"Little Bribes"
set tempo
Use palm muting to get this guitar part to sound like the record. If you haven't 
heard it, there's also an earlier version of the song performed live by Ben 
Gibbard called "Casino Blues", which has a simpler but fuller right hand pattern.
Most of this song is an open E chord shape -- slide it up to frets 6 and 7 to play 
the Amaj7 and then back.

Intro: E to Amaj7 [x3]

Verse 1 Chords:
E                                       Amaj7  E
The Eiffel Tower built to smaller scale
                                       Amaj7   E   
The freshest oxygen I ever inhaled
                                           Amaj7    E   
I tapped a bottle against the safety rail killing time

Amaj7 to E
                                       Amaj7  E
And you were like a walking compliment
                                              Amaj7  E
Tall in stature and exceptionally (well) read
                                       Amaj7  E
In dummy glasses and a cardigan, oh, come on
           Gm             A                                  
And oh so empty were the faces 
                                      E   Amaj7  E
of the dealers and the waitresses around

Amaj7 to E

You said that all these things 
                        Amaj7 E
you've learned to ignore
                                      Amaj7 E
The hidden cameras on the casino floor
                                          Amaj7 E
And what gets paid for behind hotel doors, oh, come on
         Gm                      A                      E  Amaj7 E
Pretend every slot machine is a robot amputee waving hello

The people stare into their eyes
         A                                   E   Amaj7 E
And they feed them little bribes and then they go

Interlude: E to Amaj7 [x3]

F#m                 G#       F#m
    The never-ending twilight 
                        C#m      B     F#m
In a basement where the sun has never spilt
You said that you were lonely
    C#m     B           F#m               E  Amaj7  E  Amaj7 E
And then we kissed like lonely people do

                                      Amaj7  E
You said this city has a beating heart
                                      Amaj7  E
That pushes people down the boulevard
                                           Amaj7  E
And they're all hoping for a wish fulfilled
                             Amaj7  E
In a desert for a dollar bill
                                                   Amaj7  E
Those foolish dreams, you know they plague me still, oh, come on
           Gm                            A 
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers 
                   E      Amaj7 E
and the waitresses around
          Gm                            A     
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers 
                    E    Amaj7 E
and the waitresses around

C#m  G#  Amaj7  E  F#m  E
      They're empty.....................
