1st fret
Capo on 1. Easy to play on acoustic. Enjoy 


                       C
We wiped out all the Buffalo
                            Am
Around the turn of the last century,
            F
And so it's factories and sawgrass,
                                 G
Wheat fields and asphalt laid in front of me.
                         C
The Midwest feels like a hollow place
                             Am
That we filled with love and industry.
          F
And we're staring at the frozen ground in Goodwill suits,
G
Silent as the pastor reads the eulogy.



Prechorus

     C          G           Am     G      F
Well I wanted to see just a little bit of everything.
           G
Let me be.



Chorus:     
                    C        F
Two blackbirds on a highway sign
                Am                G
Are laughing at me at four in the morning.
                         C      F
They played the war drum out of time
           Am                   G   
So I'm not sure where I've been marching.
                Am               C
I wanna be strong,
             F
But it's not easy anymore.
               C            G  F
I'm hoping I'm wrong.


Verse 2:
                   C
It's sixteen hours straight to home
                        Am
From the heart of North Missouri,
         F
And so I searched through my great-grandpop's memoirs
                    G
For the devil in my bloodstream.
                       C
Depression grabbed his throat
                               Am
And choked the life out of him slowly.
             F
I've got the same blood coursing through my veins
                      G
And it'll come for me eventually.


(Build up)

Prechorus 2:
                       C
I bet I'd be a fucking coward.
                         Am
I bet I'd never have the guts for war,
       F
'Cause I can't spend another month away from here.
      G
These frantic rest stop phone calls don't get answered anymore.
    C              G               Am     G    F
But I, I wanted to know if I could please come home.
               G
So let me know.


                    C        F
Two blackbirds on a highway sign
                Am                G
Are laughing at me at four in the morning.
                         C      F
They played the war drum out of time
       Am                       G   
So I'm not sure where I've been marching.
               Am               C
I wanna be strong,
             F
But it's not easy anymore.
               C            G  F
I'm hoping I'm wrong.
I'm hoping I'm wrong.


Bridge:
C                        G
I know how it feels to be
    F
At war with a world

That never loved me.

C                        G
I know how it feels to be
    F
At war with a world

That never loved me.



Chorus 3:
                    C        F
Two blackbirds on a highway sign
                Am                G
Are laughing at me at four in the morning.
                         C      F
They played the war drum out of time
       Am                       G   
So I'm not sure where I've been marching.
           Am     C     F
I wanna be strong.
             C      G
I wanna be strong
             F
But it's not easy anymore.
