Artist: Okkervil River
Song: Plus Ones

Capo at 7th Fret 

Intro: C

C                C              Am    C    
No one wants to hear about your 97th tear, 
             Am             C
so dry your eyes or let it go 
           D                Am             C            D                Am       
uncried, my dear. I am all out of love to mouth into your ear, and not above 
           C         D                 Am           Am* C* D*
letting a love song disappear before it's written. 
          C              C            Am        C                       
    And no one wants a tune about the 100th luftballoon that was seen 
Am                  C             D             Am                C
shooting from the window of your room, to be a spot against the sky's 
        D                   Am               C                  D
colossal gloom and land, deflated, in some neighbor state that's strewn with 
   Am         Am  C  D 
99 others.   

  Am               D                      C              D                Am
     8 Chinese brothers; well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide 
             C              D      
and sitting higher than the others,
               Am          C D
swinging his arms.

C                C              Am    C        
You would probably die before you shot up 9 miles high
         Am             C                  D 
Your eyes dilated as light played upon the sight
 Am             C            D    
Of TVC16 as it sings you goodnight
 Am            C                  D
Relaxed as hell and locked up in cell 45
Am                        Am  C  D 
I hope you're feeling better

Am               D   
51st way to leave your lover
 C              D                Am 		   C              D 
Admittedly, it doesn't seem to be as gentle or as clean as all the others
 Am          							C D
Even a scars all in the after hours of some Greenpoint bar

C                           C              Am                  C        
I told you, I can't listen, baby, 'bout the 4th time you were a lady
Am             C                  D 
and how your forthrightness betrayed a secret shyness
Am                       C                     D    
Stripped away by days of being hailed as "your highness"
               Am            C                  D
And what's new pussycat, as you were once a lionness
Am                   Am C  D 
They cut your claws out

C            C              Am                  C   
Kitten, not everyone's keen on lighting candle 17, 
             Am             C                  D 
the party's done, the cake's all gone, the plates are clean
	        Am             C                  D 
The chauffeur's near and from the cheerless mezzanine
                Am             C                  D 
And in just one year, this straight world could pay to see 
Am                        Am  C  D 
what they have been missing

Am                                   D   
You were caught kissing 8 chinese brothers
                 C              D                Am 		   C              D 
Well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide and sitting higher than the others
Am               C D
Staking with charm

Am                                               D   
And he says, "Lets get lost, let them send out alarms
Am                                          D   
He says, "Let's get crossed out and come to harm"
Am                                            D   
"Lets make the world's stupidest stand and truly mean it
Am                                   D   
Lets hit the limit of loss over lover's arms
No, lets exceed it"
