Bend about 1/4 - 1/2 the notes with (^) and add some vibratto, it sounds better.



E                 B
I'm floating in a black balloon
C#m        (D#) E
O.D. on Easter afternoon
G#m   F#         E         B
My mama told me "Baby stay clean
          C#m       (D#) E
There's no in-between"
G#m                  F#     B
And all you ladies and you gentlemen
C#m                  (D#) E
Between is all you've ever seen or been
G#m   F#           E
Fit poorly and arrange the sight
B              C#m       (D#) E
Doll it up in virgin white


G#m    F#      E       C#m                     D#
You disappoint me, you people raking in on the world
E     F#    Fm      E       B      C#m      G#m      G
The devil's script sells you the heart of a blackbird
E            B                C#m           E
Shine on me baby, 'cause it's raining in my heart

G#m            F#   B
Sun's rising on a chopping glare
C#m              (D#)  E
Rain dropping acid bought up in the air
G#m   F#     E        B     C#m       E
A distorted reality's now a necessity ... to be free

G#m    F#     E
It's so disappointing
C#m                         D#
First I put it all down to luck
E   F#     Fm  E  B       C#m        G#m
God knows why my country don't give a fuck
G
Fuck

G#m          G         B                   C#
Shine on me baby, 'cause it's raining in my heart
G            B          F#                 G#m
Shine on me baby, 'cause it's raining in my heart

Nice job :) The C#m's are major throughout, though. Also, during the "heart of a blackbird" line, I'm pretty certain it's an F#/A# instead of C#m on the word "heart." Thanks for laying the groundwork :)
