The Handsome Family - "Far From Any Road" from their album "Singing bones" (2003)

Also the official theme song of HBO series "True Detective"


[Verse 1]

Am             E           Dm             Am
From the dusty May sun her looming shadow grows

Am             E              Dm          Am
Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote

C
She twines her spines up slowly
  G
Towards the boiling sun
    Dm 
And when I touched her skin
   F
My fingers ran with blood


[Verse 2]

Am             E            Dm             Am
In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
Am             E                Dm               Am
I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom

    C                             G
And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
  Dm                                F
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands


[Bridge]

Am                  E
When the last light warms the rocks
        Dm             Am
And the rattlesnakes unfold
Am                 E       Dm             Am
Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones


[Verse 3]

    C
And rise with me forever
 G
Across the silent sand
        Dm
And the stars will be your eyes
        F
And the wind will be my hands

The first line should be: "From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows"

The first line is indeed "From the dusty mesa, her looming shadow grows"
On the second verse "and strange hands halted me" should be "A strange hunger haunted me"
Finally, "felt the trembling hands" should be "I felt a trembling hand"
You can hear this on the live youtube version form 2008
