Intro: G


Verse 1 chords:
G
Portable television, shrouded in snow
     Am                 C/G
In a raggedy van on the side of the road
    G
The night it had frozen through my little bones
       Am                        C/G
So you took me in your arms, you squeezed out the cold


Chorus 1 chords:
G                       Am          C/G
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h
G                       Am          C/G         G
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h


Verse 2: use verse 1 chords
Upstate New York, autumn, brightly colored leaves
Oh, the hills were on fire, they burn for you and me
And where we were going it was built like a lie
But as sacred as the Bible, so we didn't question why


Chorus 2: use chorus 1 chords
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h


Bridge:
  C/G                 G
I saw it in the soil just recently
          Am                                   G
Where the rows of teeth they grow in fields of infinite greed
    C/G                       G
And here laid the father, and here stood the son
          Am                         G             C/G
Where the road meets the horizon for everyone, for everyone


Verse 3: use verse 1 chords
Portable television, take us away
From this burden of reflection we've carried today
Oh, the generator's running but there's nothing on the air
And the static is a comfort, so we huddle around and stare


Chorus 3: use chorus 1 chords
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h
And oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h, oh-h-h-h-h
