The Shins - New Slang submitted incorrectly by badfish_313
From the Album "Oh Inverted World"

Chords - Am, C, F, G

Am x02210
C  x32010
F  133211
G  320003

Verse 1:
Am               C              F
Gold teeth and a curse for this town 
C              G              
Were all in my mouth
     C            F            Am   G
Only I don't know how they got out, dear
Am             C      F
Turn me back into the pet 
C             G
I was when we met
C             F            Am   G
I was happier then with no mind set

G                      C
And if you'd a took to me like
  F    C            G
A gull takes to the wind
            G           C
Well, I'd a jumped from my tree
    F     C               F           C
And I'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
F                   C             G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well

Verse 2:
Am                 C          F
New slang when you notice the stripes
C                G
The dirt in your fries
     C                   F
Hope it's right when you die
        Am  G
Old and bo..ny
Am                 C                F
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall
C              G
Never should'a called
    C               F
But my heads to the wall
        Am  G
And I'm lonely


Verse 3:
Am                C          F
God speed all the baker's at dawn
             C         G
May they all cut their thumbs
    C                F
And bleed into their buns 
           Am   G
'Till they melt away

Chorus 2:
G                     C    
I'm looking in on the good life
           F               G
I might be doomed never to find
Without a trust or flaming fields 
         F       G
Am I too dumb to refine?
And if you'd a took to me like 
     F     C               F            C
Well I'd a danced like the queen of the eyesores 
F                   C             G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well
