Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band
To All the Lights in the Windows

Capo: 4th Fret

INTRO Em

Em
Moses up on the mountainside
D
What a place to meet
Em
He brought his pad and his pencil
          D
Poured himself some gypsum tea
Am                        D
All the world's multiplicity
           G                     Em
Turned his brain and his soul to stone
F                     Am
He drew his face on a tablet
F                        G
And carried it back home

Em
Jesus off in the water
D
Standing on his feet
Em
Yeah, that's the thing about charisma
         D
It makes everyone believe
Am                      D
That there is nothing impossible
              G                        Em
When I'm with you and when you're with me
F                   Am
I got a sad sinking feeling
F                      G
That that can never be


Am                         D
But I'm going to do what I can for you
G
I will make a plea
Am                       D
To all the lights in the windows
Em
The puddles in the streets
C                       D
And all the lovers that you've been teasing
G            C
From your balcony
         Am        D                  G
May they carry you far from my memory


Em
Solomon heard a protest
D
From the lower court
Em
Reached in his ear for a silver dollar
D
Just like he'd done before
Am                          D
He tossed it high said that wisdom's fickle
    G                 Em
And chance is God's retort
F                            Am
And handed down the sentence
       F                     G
It was death by Trojan horse

Em
Pharaoh woke from a bad dream
              D
Splashed some water on his face
Em
When it's a matter of nightmares you had
D
Better ask a slave
Am                    D
And he may tell you a famine's coming
G                   Em
Or he may look away
F                   Am
If he's kind then return it
F                       G
Let him lick your plate


Am                         D
But I'm going to do what I can for you
G
I will make a plea
Am                      D
To all the birds in the chimneys
Em
The whales up on the beach
C                          D
And all the footsteps that you've been hearing
G           C
Like a timpani
         Am        D                     G
May they carry you far from your enemies


BRIDGE Em, D, Em, D


Am                         D
But I'm going to do what I can for you
G
I will make a plea
Am                       D
To all the lights in the windows
Em
The puddles in the streets
C                      D
And all the hours that you've been sitting
G           C
At your vanity
         Am        D                    Em
May they carry you far from your misery
         Am        D
May they carry you far


Em
Jesus off in the water
D
Standing on his feet
Em
Yeah, that's the thing about charisma
         D
It makes everyone believe
Am                      D
That there is nothing impossible
              G                        Em
When I'm with you and when you're with me
F                   Am
I got a sad sinking feeling
F                   Am
I got a sad sinking feeling
F                   Am                         G
I got a sad sinking feeling that will never be


OUTRO Em, D, Em, D (Repeat as necessary)

I think the bridge and the outro sound better with Dsus2 instead of D, but it really works either way. Thanks for posting this!

Really just a tiny, minor correction, in the second verse the lyrics are "It makes everyone believe THAT there is nothing impossible", not "but there is...".
Just a minor thing, but since the rest is near perfect, I thought you might just as well, do it all perfect ;)
Otherwise thanks very much for the chords!
