Machu Picchu
by ze Strokes


Ebm                              Db
I'm putting your patience to the test.
Ebm                          Db        Ab
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
Ebm                             Db
And didn't you know there was a choice?
Ebm                          Db     Ab
It's never yours but someone else's voice.

Ebm                            Db
Slippin' your body through the street.
Ebm                                 Db         Ab
I'm sending your girlfriends to the night, for cheap.
Ebm                      Db
Wearing a jacket made of meat.
Ebm                         Db       Ab
Sending a letter waved with walls so sweet.
Ab
And now you've heard that...

CHORUS

Ebm           Ab
Waves turn to grey.
Ebm         Ab
Life in the shade.
  Ebm     Ab
A violent cloud.
    Ebm       Ab
And that's on USA.
Ebm             Ab
Running for the rights,
Ebm            Ab
Sleep into the sky.
Ebm                 Ab
I'm just trying' to find...
  Ebm            Ab
A mountain I can climb.

Ebm-Db-Ebm-Db-Ab

Ebm                              Db
I'm putting your patience to the test.
Ebm                          Db        Ab
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
Ebm                             Db
And didn't you know there was a choice?
Ebm                          Db     Ab
It's never yours but someone else's voice.
Ab
And now you've seen that...

CHORUS

Ebm          Ab
Waltz on the grey.
Ebm         Ab
Life in the shade.
  Ebm     Ab
A violent cloud,
    Ebm       Ab
And that's on USA.
Ebm         Ab
Born on the rise.
Ebm            Ab
Circles in the skies.
Ebm                Ab
I'm just tryin' to find...
  Ebm            Ab
A mountain I can climb.

Ab-Ebm-Ab-Ebm

Ab                     Ebm
Tell us, are you gonna tell us?
                  Ab
Why do we feel so jealous?
                  Ebm
Why do we feel so silent?
                 Ab
Why is it always silent?
                                   Ebm
                (I didn't want to ask you baby,
Ab                   Ebm                              Ab
I didn't want you to suffer , and everybody is singing .... )
Ebm-Ab-Ebm
Ebm-Db
Ebm         Db              Ab
Why are you waiting? By the door...

CHORUS

Ebm           Ab
Life turns to dust,
         Ebm         Ab
And when it turns to rust.
Ebm         Ab
Gossip is a truth.
         Ebm         Ab
A little bit for the lie you took.
    Ebm             Ab
And why do you look surprised?
     Ebm              Ab
Ever since I'm in the skies.
Ebm                Ab
I'm just tryin' to find,
  Ebm               Ab
A place for you and I.

Ab-Ebm-Ab-Ebm

I apologize for any wrong lyrics.

If you prefer something a little easier with a capo, then put it on the 4th fret.
Play the Ebm as A Bm
the Db as an A
and the Ab as an E, I believe.

That's about it, I did this by ear so if you guys think something's off, please comment, 
and enjoy!
