[Intro]
(mute & strum pattern (x2))
(G & strum pattern (x4))

[Verse 1]
G
the air was more than humid
G
and the heat was more than hungry
G                                                                         Em1
and the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes
(walk up b/t verses- pluck low E once and then change from Em to G)
G
the bulls were running wild
G
because they’re big and mean and sacred
G                                               Em1
and the children were playing cricket with no shoes
(walk up b/t verse & chorus- pluck low E once and then change from Em to Bm)

[Chorus]
Bm
the next morning we woke up, man, to a seven hour drive
C
well there we were stuck in port blaire where boats break and children stare
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm                C    
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
     Em                Bm            C        
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm
G x4

[Verse 2]
(same as previous verse)
disembarking from the port
with no mistakes of any sort
moving soundly, engine running smooth
officials were quite friendly
once we drown them with our sweet talk
and we bribe them with our cigarettes and booze

[Chorus 2]
Bm
the next morning we woke up man with the sunrise to the right, well,
C
moving back north to port blaire where boats break and children stare
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm                C    
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm            C        
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm

[Outro] 
G

pluck low e on the 3rd fret for the walk up thing - forgot that.

how do you play Em2?

the chords shown aren't accurate nor are the steps, it steps down from G to Em then back up and then there is a barred A higher up the fret than the A major shown
