Bright Eyes -- Classic Cars

I saw him play this on TV.
Capo at 2nd fret

intro: F x4

           C                     F
She was a real royal lady, true patron of the arts
         G7                                Am                F
Said the best country singers die in the back of classic cars
         C                         F
So if I ever got too hungry for a suitcase or guitar
C                    G7           C
To think of them all alone in the dark
      C                                F
So I laid some nights beside her in a bed made for a queen
G7                                            Am               F
She said I kissed her different, that all the men her age were mean
C                                 F
Gave me anything I wanted, Oh the generosity
         C         G7            C
I took all that I could, it was free
         C                               F
Now the sky is a torn up denim and the clouds just splattered paint
       G7                          Am            F
It’s a room I’m renovating; it’s a name I gotta change
          C                           F
If I get out of California I’m going back to my home state
             C          G7     C
To tell them all that I made a mistake

And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
Lighting candles to a cynical saint
C                               G7                 Am         F
Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
C                      G7            Am  F
From the panicked paradox of day to day
              C                              G7            Am  F
If you can’t understand something then it’s best to be afraid

C                                         F
The whole world it loves you if you’re a chic chameleon
G7                                          Am    F
Intersecting circles she could hang with anyone
           C                          F
But when conducting business she would lie about where she’s from
          C             G7           C
Saying, "Life is how it is not how it was"
C                                     F
I learned to listen felt like I was back at school
G7                                           Am       F
She’d talk forever about the phases of the moon
           C                      F
Saying, "Everything is a cycle, you’ve got to let it come to you
C                 G7            C
And when it does, you will know what to do"
C                                      F
Without even knowing I guess I took up her advice
       G7                          Am            F
Painted her front door it seemed a suitable goodbye
C                           F
It’s not that often but I think of her sometimes
                C        G7       C
Just something quaint, a couple ships in the night

And they keep moving at a glacial pace
Turning circles in a memory maze
C                               G7                Am        F
I made a new cast of the death mask that’s gonna cover my face
I had to change the combination to the safe
         C            G7              Am  F
Hide it all behind a wall let people wait
           G7                                    C     Am  F
And never trust a heart that is so bent it can’t break
