Mountain Goats


E Am B (x2)

[Verse 1]
E                         C#m
I got off work just past 11 laid one finger to the breeze
A                              F#m             B
You can almost taste the action on nights like these
E                              C#m
Trees were bending in the wind you were 40 miles away

A                               F#m                  B
And I was headed your direction I’d been waiting all day I’d been waiting all

E Am B (x2)

[Verse 2]

E                    C#m
Moon over West Covina was huge and white
A                                   F#m            B
And I was like a patient on a table headed for the light
E                                C#m
Leaned toward the center divider feel the wind in my hair
A                              F#m                B
Keep a light up in your window I'm gonna be right there, I'm gonna be right

E      Am
With a gleam in my eye
    E    C#m      A      B
and an almost airtight   alibi
E C#m A B

[Verse 3]
E                             C#m
Down by the chemistry building I found a quiet place to park
A                                                   F#m                     B
And I made my way down the street toward your place stepping lightly in the dark
E                                           C#m
Climbed up the steps to your doorway like a man prepared to jump beneath a train
A                             F#m               B                       E
Its real warm outside tonight maybe tomorrow it rains maybe tomorrow it rains

E Am B (2X)

[Verse 4]
E                                   C#m
Inside your room we shut the window and we turned on a fan
A                                         F#m                    B
And we lay there together in the darkness I can keep a secret If you can
E                                        C#m
Finishing one another's sentences like a pair of identical twins
Your boyfriend's out of town until Tuesday
F#m            B                              E
And nobody saw me come in, nobody saw me come in

E      Am
With a gleam in my eye
    E    C#m      A      B
and an almost airtight   alibi

E C#m A B

E Am B (x4)
