Foggy Lilac Windows - Frontier Ruckus

The Orion Songbook: Track 8

Matthew Milia: songs, voice, guitar, harmonica, pedal steel
David W. Jones: banjo, voice, dobro
Zachary Nichols: brass, singing-saw, melodica, keyboards
Ryan Etzcorn: drums, percussion

The chords are directly from Matthew on FR's site. I take little to no 
credit for them. I did fix the forum formatting problems though.


Tuning: Standard [Capo 3rd Fret]

Verse I


G^      C                Em
Ah, the holes of highway bones are filled
        Am               F               Fm
But the tolls of highway loans are billed
       Dm       C            F        Dm7
To the board of directors of boredom, here

     C                 Em
So I slept outside the worried exit
    Am         F            Fm
And hurried to avoid the decrepit
Dm               C             F          Dm7
Hordes of fallen Lords, I cant afford em, dear



Verse II


    C                C7
But overwhelmed is a laughing word
F                      G
To say youve taken for granted stillness
Dm    C           F     Dm7
On an ever-moving planet

C                C7
Was the glaciers falling heard
F                        G
Was the crumbling porchs utter realness
Dm      C              F      Fm
Made of ash or made of granite



Verse III


    Am                   Em
Oh, Im so longing for my mamas kiss
    Dm                C
And scratching my old lifetimes back
F                 Fm
That simpleminded tenderness
C                 A7
Is a pity that my searches lack

    Am                 Em
The graveyard breathes reality
    Dm                  C
But realitys blurred outside my gates
F              Fm
No matter if I hesitate,


Chorus


    C           B/C
The foggy lilac windows come
    Cm7             G    Dm7   F/D
And dumb my number one ambition...
                     C
And its too much repitition



Cycle through the verse chords regularly: Some added licks he does.

Verse IV


    C                   Em
The south was knee-deep in the weeds
    Am         F                Fm
And I was in a plank-wood parlor
Dm               C               F            Dm7
Every flame from every mouth was only worth a dime

C                           Em
Feeling easier to move than shifting reeds
      Am               F           Fm
I was wearing my times on my collar
Dm            C                  F       Dm7
But my colors dont get bright in seasons time



Verse V



C                     C7
Your biggest grid did shrink and sink
F             G
In one nights walk of blindness
Dm C                   F                      Dm7
To foreign sites where bright lights find you out

C              C7
When evolution is extinct
    F            G
And lurking is a fossils kindness
Dm         C                     F               Fm
And theres no one left under our sun to sign you out


Verse VI



        Am                Em
And the piano strings are damp and deep
        Dm            C
And the honky-tonk is breaking free
        F             Fm
And the second-grader that you keep
C                    A7
Beneath your skin is next to me

Am                 Em
Ah, who likes, who plays these games
    Dm               C
And who is clutching to the reins
      F          Fm
Cause I scurried open plains


Chorus II


    C               B/C
And the foggy lilac windows come
    Cm7            G     Dm7   F/D
And dumb my number one ambition...
                       C
And it's too much competition

Verse VII - Listen to the song to hear how to play this verse

                  C
And that bleached canal was rare
    B/C
And Ma was there
    Am              G    Dm7
And no one dared to care   (about tomorrow)

    C
The road is bare
  B/C
I go nowhere
    Am               G        Dm7
And all the joy that I'm aware  (is food for sorrow)
    C                B/C
The loft upstairs is unprepared
    Am                   G              Dm7
The billboard fields are stoned in pairs
    C                 B/C
The gravel layers and river dares
        Am          G     Dm7
And the air is very weary

(end with a verse)
