TRACK 1 - Gold

[INTRO]

F Am G x2

Am

[VERSE 1]

Am                  C
Got a tattoo of a snake
       F              C
And a ski mask on my face
       F            C
But I woke up in a ditch
   G                F
Behind the Stop 'n Go
 Am           C
Lying in the weeds
        F            C
With a bullet in my gut
 F               C
Watching dollar bills
      G          F
Fly away in the dust

[CHORUS]

         F             C
Now the sun's sinking down
          G            F
Spilling gold on the ground
         Am          C
But I'm going out tonight
     G                       F  Am G
Out past the last lights of town

[INTERLUDE]

[VERSE 2]

Am                          C
There was a girl with dark eyes
     F             C
And hair shining black
        F          C
And it ran like a river
 G             F
Wild down her back
           Am           C
But these wide empty streets
        F                 C
And the air shaking with heat
F                 C   
    They made me hungry
 G                      F   Am G
Hungry to do something mean

[CHORUS]

         F             C
Now the sun's sinking down
          G            F
Spilling gold on the ground
         Am          C
But I'm going out tonight
     G                       F  Am G
Out past the last lights of town

[INTERLUDE]

F Am G x3

Am

[VERSE 3]

Am                 C
The Stop 'n Go's closed
     F            C
The coyotes they moan
         F              C
And the wind's rolling beer cans
            G
Down the street

[CHORUS]

         F             C
But the sun's sinking down
          G            F
Spilling gold on the ground
         Am          C
And I'm going out tonight
     G                       F  Am G
Out past the last lights of town

TRACK 2 - The Silver Light

[INTRO]

C G C F C G C

[VERSE 1]

      C      G      C
There is no day or night
        F          C
in the forest of slot machines
  Am                 F
flashing lights and cigarettes
  C   G                C
free refills on your drink

[VERSE 2]

            C      G       C
But if the golden deer of luck
        F                  C
Never leaps the blackjack felt
      Am                 F
Past old men with their oxygen
 C        G               C
feeding quarters to the slots

[CHORUS]

          F              C
Will you see the silver light?
         E              F
Can you see the silver light?
                C
Can you see it hiding 
  G                  C
there in your empty hands?

[CHORUS]
          F              C
Will you see the silver light?

Can you see the silver light?

Can you see it shining 
  G                  C
there in your empty hands?

[VERSE 3]

 C     G        C
Beefy nachos, chicken wings
F                   C
All-you-can-eat buffet
   Am                F
A bar shaped like a racing car
 C     G                  C
Neon glow-stick in your drink

[VERSE 4]

           C       G     C
And if the angels never come
         F              C
Soaring down on golden wings
      Am                 F
And anoint your shaking fist 
        C G            C
with a pa-ir of paper kings

[CHORUS]

          F              C
Will you see the silver light?
         E              F
Can you see the silver light?
                C
Can you see it hiding 
  G                  C
there in your empty hands?

[OUTRO]

N.C.
Will you see the silver light?
N.C.
Can you see the silver light?
N.C.
Can you see it shining 
N.C.
There in your empty hands?



TRACK 3 - Back in My Day

[INTRO]
Em C G D

[VERSE 1]
        C
We had maps that unfolded 
 Cm
back in my day
            G
You could drink from the river
        Em
We had gods made of clay
            C
There were mile-high glaciers, 
    Cm
no locks on the doors
      G
The stars burned brighter 
          D
We never counted past four
         C
And the birds were always watching 
            Cm
There were monsters in the sea
         G
We wore watches on our wrists 
             D
There were ghosts in the trees

[CHORUS]

Em
Way back in the days, 
            C
you're too young to have seen,
          G
When the nights were darker, 
 D
longer and deep

[INTERLUDE]

Am Em G D

[VERSE 2]

       C
There was no time or space 
     Cm
when I was growing up
        G
We had summer all winter 
     Em
The moon rose with the sun
     C
And music sounded better 
  Cm
Recorded on rings of ice
            G
And as the songs turned to water 
    D
we couldn't help but cry

[CHORUS]

Em
Way back in the good days, 
    C
the ones you didn't see,
      G
When everything was better, 
 D
darker and deep

[OUTRO]

Am Em G D

TRACK 4 - Tiny Tina

[INTRO]

G C G Am Em C G

[VERSE 1]

         G     D        G
Last September at the state fair
          C                       G
Past the ferris wheel and bumper cars
     Em             Am      C
The hypnotist, the jumping goats
                          G
Forgotten country music stars

[VERSE 2]

             G        D    G
There was a sign for Tiny Tina
          Em      C   G
From the wilds of Arizona
  C                       G
Drinks just a thimble of water
 Am          C            G
Eats just a handful of straw

[CHORUS]

 C              G
Tiny Tina, the world's smallest horse
        Am           Em
Just a dollar to go see her
        C                         G
Just a dollar to see that little horse

[INTERLUDE]

G D G Em C G C G Am C G

[VERSE 3]

            G  D         G        G7
I rode the teacups, the tilt 'o whirl
      C                       G
Shot water guns at grinning clowns
     Em             Am   C           G
Ate funnel cakes, chili dogs, fried beer
  Am       C              G
I saw the largest ear of corn

[VERSE 4]

            G            D       G
But as the fair lights shone at dusk
    C                           G
I stood there in that field of dirt
         Em             Am     C
Thinking only of those little hooves
                         G
Trotting circles in the dark

[OUTRO]

 C              G
Tiny Tina, the world's smallest horse
     Am          Em
Why didn't I go see her?
     C                           G
Why didn't I go see that little horse?
     Am          C             G
Why didn't I go see that tiny horse?
     Am          C               G
Why didn't I go see that little horse?



TRACK 5 - Underneath the Falls

[INTRO]

D

[VERSE 1]

      D    G   D/F# A
The green one sleeps 
G               D
underneath the falls
 G                   D
Deep in the roar of water 
     G                D   Dsus4 D
he slowly dreams the world

[VERSE 2]

      D        G       D/F# A
And those who venture close 
          G                D
to that shadow 'neath the sea, 
      G             D
they fall asleep forever 
       G            A
in the eddy of the reeds

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A              G             D
Turn away, away, from the whisper in the falls

[VERSE 3]

        D     G     D/F#   A
On the first summer nights 
     G            D
the windows open wide
     G                D
The world expands in darkness, 
       G             D  Dsus4 D
black waters rushing by

[VERSE 4]

           D      G       D/F#  A
There are hunters in the hedges 
            G               D
There are whispers in the green
     G              D
The soaking mud is hungry,
  G            A
closer now it seeps

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call

Turn away, away, from the hissing in the walls

[VERSE 5]

    D       G      D/F#  A
Be careful summer nights 
 G                 D
Keep the windows closed 
    G                 D
Outside the yard is crawling 
     G              D  Dsus4 D
The heavy branches bow

[VERSE 6]

    D        G       D/F#  A
In heat the world remembers 
     G                    D
when all rushed with the sea 
    G                  D
In heat the old waves rise again 
     G                      A
to claim what has crawled free

[INTERLUDE]

A/G A/F# A/E

[CHORUS]

       G             A             D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call 
       G     A            G                D
Turn away, away, from the one beneath the falls
       G             A             D Dsus4 D
Don't listen, don't listen to the call

Turn away, away, from the one beneath the falls

TRACK 6 - The Sea Rose

[INTRO]

G

[VERSE 1]

  G             D             G
Wrapped in the weeds of the shallows 
C                          G
   In the moon's drifting light 
 C                G
Calling from the cold, wet rocks, 
           D           G
the sea ro-ose of the low tides

[VERSE 2]

   G        D             G
A passing ship along the coast 
C                   G
   heard her sadly calling 
     C               G  F#/G Em
and turned its sails to the sound, 
        G         D        G
of the rose, the sea rose calling

[REFRAIN]

        Em         D           G
In the waves, the waves she's calling

[CHORUS]

 D                   C       G
Lonely, lonely, my heart is dark 
C       G                D
   the rocks lie cold beneath me
       C             G F#/G Em
Come closer, closer darling one
       G  D         G   
We'll marry in the seaweed

[SOLO]

G D G C G    

C G F#/G Em G D G

[VERSE 3]

G                D             G
On the passing ship, a sailor boy, 
C                         G
   he heard the sea rose calling 
      C              G  F#/G Em
and from the bow he dove on down 
        G          D         G
to the waves, the waves are falling

[REFRAIN]

     Em         C          G
The waves, the waves were falling

[VERSE 4]

 G     D               G
Come, come my darling boy 
C                  G
    into my arms awaiting
 C                 G    F#/G  Em
Down, down in the cold, dark sea 
     G  D            G
I'm waiting here to love you

[CHORUS]

D                 C     G
To her arms, her lovely arms, 
C       G                     D     
   the currents pulled him splashing, 
 C               G    F#/G     Em
but her body was only foaming waves 
         G    D             G
and her voice   just water rushing

[OUTRO]

        Em        C        G
In the waves the sea rose falling
        Em         D         G
In the waves, the waves, my darling
     Em         D        C      G
The waves, the sea rose calling



TRACK 7 - The Red Door

C Dm Em Dm C 

[VERSE 1]

C                       Dm
You appeared upon the white shore 
Em    Dm               C
on a dark and moonless eve 
C                       Dm
I led you through the stone gate, 
Em        Dm         C         C/B Am
torches spitting in the breeze

[CHORUS]

Am                      Em     Eb
All around our palace glistened, 
Dm                            Am    Em
splashed with waves from the sea, 
    Dm                      C
but you shone bright as a thousand suns 
         G        C
in your gown of ivory

[VERSE 2]

C                    Dm
One thing, I ask of you, my love 
Em    Dm              C
as I comb your white-gold hair 
C                             Dm
Only stay your hand from the red door, 
Em       Dm           C         C/B Am
the red door beneath the stairs

[CHORUS]

Am             Em             Eb
The red door under the stairs, 
Dm                       Am   Em
the red door under the stairs 
Dm                       C
Stay your hand from that old, black lock
         G    G7            C
There's nothing to see in there

[INTERLUDE]

C Dm Em Dm C (x2)

[VERSE 3]

C                         Dm
Why do you stand so many hours 
Em      Dm          C
staring out across the sea? 
C                             Dm
Why do you slip out past the black drapes 
Em         Dm              C   C/B Am
when I pretend that I'm asleep?

[CHORUS]

Am                Em      Eb
And even in the bright sun 
Dm                         Am Em
as we walk the bone-white beach
Dm                        C
You put your ear to the whispering shells 
     G   G7           C
and turned away from me

[VERSE 4]

C                    Dm
Red in your dress's hem tonight, 
Em      Dm                  C
a red flash in your roving eye
C                       Dm
Why the tremor in your soft hands 
Em      Dm          C       C/B Am
when I pull you to my side?

[CHORUS]

Am                      Em    Eb
The red door and what's inside, 
Dm                       Am   Em
the red door and all it hides 
Dm                    C
Stare away across the ocean waves, 
        G G7                 C
but I know what you've seen tonight

Gentlemen, I tell you now,

I swear the truth

I saw the table rise, the teacup flew

[VERSE 1]

      Bm                             G
From tempered glass I built the apparatus 
     Bm                           G
to alight in the presence of phantasmus
 Am                         Em
Filaments within detect a change, 
   Am                         Em   D
in aero-pressure, barometric waves

[CHORUS]

G       D          G
Gentlemen, in the name of science! 
C                      G
Gentlemen, I now can prove:  
    Em D/F# G         Am       C        G    D G D/F#
the unseen world is close, it pushes through

[INTERLUDE]

[CHORUS]

G       D       G
Gentlemen, the lights blew out! 
C                        G
Gentlemen, the curtains moved! 
    Em D/F# G       Am         C        G    D G D/F#
A world of light resides just past our view

[VERSE 2]

    Bm                       G
Within the crooks of vacuum tubes 
   Bm                         G
a caged spirit lit aglow the room 
 Am                             Em
Burst forth from the shattered tube 
     Am                                  Em  D
It thinned my blood, burnt me, ravaged cruel

[CHORUS]

G       D       G
Gentlemen, the lights do flicker! 
C                      G
Gentlemen, the air it cools! 
       Em D/F# G     Am       C        G    D G
Who's with me here, listening in this room?

[OUTRO]

N.C.
Gentlemen, the world grows dark! 
N.C.
Gentlemen, the curtains moved! 
N.C.
Who's with me here, whispering in this room?



TRACK 9 - King of Dust

[INTRO]

N.C.

[VERSE 1]

    C                 F C     G                   C    C7
I dreamed that I was flying above the glittering world, 
       F              C               G          C
but I woke up in the bar ditch, car ready to explode
 F              C            F                C
Hanging upside down in the front seat of my truck
       F                C         G          C  C7
The scream of grinding metal, 40 cars piling up

[CHORUS]

 F                    C           E               Am  G
Nothing rusts in the desert. The air is full of ghosts
  F                      C         G                    C    C7
Cliffs painted with the old gods, rabbit brush full of bones
     F                 C         G                           Am G
Oh, Coronado, king of dust, the desert never cared what you saw 
           F    Fm        C
when you stared into the sun

[VERSE 2]

C                         F  C     G                    C  C7
Ancient oceans have been lost   beneath this shifting clay 
          F             C             G                  C
where conquistadors in silver hunted Cibola across the plains,
           F             C             F                C
but there are no golden cities, only trailer parks and dust,
    F            C                  G             C  C7
and angels only fly here when you drive into the sun

[CHORUS]

 F                    C           E               Am  G
Nothing rusts in the desert. The air is full of ghosts
  F                      C         G                    C    C7
Cliffs painted with the old gods, rabbit brush full of bones
     F                 C         G                           Am G
Oh, Coronado, king of dust, the desert never cared what you saw 
           F    Fm        C
when you stared into the sun

TRACK 10 - GREEN WILLOW VALLEY

[INTRO]

C

[VERSE 1]

          C         F       C
Like the moon pulls on the water 
         F               C
and the water pulls the sand 
       Dm                Am
Like starlight drifts a billion years 
     F            C
to flicker once above your head

[VERSE 2]

       C    F       C
The cicadas in the oak trees 
     F              C
are singing to the sky 
    Dm           Am
and I am calling out to you 
   F         G      C
across this silent night

[CHORUS]
 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you

[VERSE 3]

         C        F        C
Can you feel the wings of birds 
  F                 C
whisper 'cross the sky? 
 Dm                Am
Can you hear the blades of grass 
 F              C
calling to the light?

[VERSE 4]

           C     F      C
There are rivers underground 
 F                C
rushing cold and wild 
    Dm           Am
and I am calling out to you 
   F        G      C
across the lonely night

[CHORUS]

 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you

[INTERLUDE]

C F C F C Dm Am F G C

[BRIDGE]

       Am            Em
We'll lie under the willows 
      F              C
in a bed of fallen leaves 
Am               Em
I will bring you apples 
     F                C   G G7
and water from the stream

[VERSE 5]

C       F         C
I will pull the thorns 
F                    C
from your blistered feet 
Dm                 Am
Can't you hear me calling 
         F     G        C
in the whisper of the trees?

[CHORUS]

 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you
