"Lampshades on Fire"
Performed by Modest Mouse
From the album "Strangers to Ourselves"

Chords figured by D. G. Glastonbury

One of the more popular submissions for this song involves tuning down a
standard guitar two half steps so instead of E-A-D-G-B-e, you get D-G-C-F-d.
I'm not too keen on doing that because I don't want to risk snapping strings
in between tuning to and from two half steps down, so I took some time to
figure out an alternative that involves just using a capo. Enjoy!

---

Capo on 3rd fret.

Intro: Em D C Am


Em 
Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
D
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
C                Am
We're all going, we're all going


          Em
Well, the lampshade's on fire when the lights go out
    D
The room lit up and we ran about
      C
Well, this is what I really call a party now
 Am
Packed up our cars, move to the next town


          Em
Well, the lampshade's on fire when the lights go out
  D
This is what I really call a party now
      C
Well, fear makes us really, really run around
Am
This one's done so where to now?


    Em
Our eyes light up, we have no shame at all
        D
Well, you all know what I'm talking about
C
Shaved off my eyebrows when I fall to the ground
   Am
So I can't look surprised right now


Em
Pack up again, head to the next place
D
Where we'll make the same mistakes
 C
Burn it up or just chop it down
    Am
But this one's done so where to now?


G 
Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
F
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
C
We're all going, we're all going


          Em
Well, the lampshade's on fire when the lights go out
  D
This is what I really call a party now
      C
Well, fear makes us really, really run around
    Am
But this one's done so where to now?


    Em
Our eyes light up, we have no shame at all
       D
Well, you all know what I'm talking about
    C
The room lights up, well, we're still dancing around
Am
We're having fun, having some fun now


Em
Pack up again, head to the next place
D
Where we'll make the same mistakes
 C
Open one up and let it fall to the ground
 Am
Pile out the door when it all runs out


G 
Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
F
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
C
We're all going, we're all going


        G
We have spines and other bones
                 F
We'll eat your food, we'll throw stones
               C
Well, this is how it's always gone

And this is how it's going to go


      G
Well, we're the human race
                F
We're going to party at this place
              C
And then move on

(Tough luck)


              G
Will kill you off and then make a clone
               F
Yeah, we got spines and other bones
         C
This is how it's always gone

And this is how it's going to go


       G
As our feelings are getting hurt
             F
Oh, we want you to do the work
              C
Our ass looks great inside these jeans

Well, we want just our water clean


         G
This is how it's always been
             F
And this is how it's going to be
                 C
So you just move on


    Em
The air's on fire so we're moving on
D
 Better find another one cause this one's done
C
 Waiting for the magic of the sun to explode
   Am
To push, push, push, push, pull us up


Em
Spend some time, float in outer space
 D
Find another planet, make the same mistakes
    C
Our mind's all shattered when we come and go
 Am
Hoping for the scientists to find another door


Outro: G
