 Hey World! Here is my interpretation of the chords in "I Was Once a Loyal Lover" by
Cab For Cutie off the Open Door EP. This is a song that all Death Cab fans should know how
play. I'm looking at the clock and it's 2:42am on a school night. I'm super tired but I 
couldn't sleep until I got this song out there ( Forgive me if I made a mistake, I'm
asleep right now.) Please contact me if you have any questions. Enjoy! -K.D.

(A, F#m, E, D, Bm, Dm, A* (played with the B string opened), D* (played with the E
opened))


 A
 Will I have learned so very little
 F#m                  D
 When these bones are old and brittle?
   A
 I wait to talk when I should listen
     F#m                 D
 And cloud mistakes with false revisions


 A
 All my friends are forward-thinking
 F#m                 D
 Getting hitched and quitting drinking
     A
 And I can feel them pulling away
    Fm              D
 As I'm resigned to stay the same


     F#m       E    A    E   Bm
 And you can't even begin to know
     F#m  E          A      E       Bm       Dm
 How many times I've told myself "I told you so"

(play A, F#m, D)

 A
 I was once a loyal lover
       F#m            D
 Whose lips did never seek another's
     A
 But now each love's more like a match
   F#m                 D
 A blinding spark that burns out fast


     A
 And they all conclude with the same sentence:
        F#m               D
 " I've never met someone more self-centered
     A
 Who thinks that life with a nice girl's like
 F#m           D
 Waiting for a bus to work"


     F#m       E    A    E   Bm
 And you can't even begin to know
     F#m   E          A      E      Bm       Dm
 How many times I've told myself "I told you so"
     F#m       E    A     E      Bm
 And you can't even begin to believe
            F#m     E       A        E         Bm  Dm
 There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me

(play A, F#m, D) x2

 F#m            E
 If you deem it so
 D*                    A*
 Just cut the cord and go
 F#m        E
 You'll be fine
         D*                 E
 There's plenty of hills to climb

(play A, F#m, D) x2

 F#m       E    A         Bm
 You can't even begin to know
     F#m  E          A       E      Bm       Dm
 How many times I've told myself "I told you so"
     F#m       E    A          Bm
 And you can't even begin to believe
            F#m     E       A        E        Bm   Dm
 There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me

(x2)
