Artist: Okkervil River
Song: Plus Ones

Capo at 7th Fret 

Intro: D

D                G              Em    G    
No one wants to hear about your 97th tear, 
             Em             G
so dry your eyes or let it go 
           A                Em             G            A                Em       
uncried, my dear. I am all out of love to mouth into your ear, and not above 
           G         A                 Em           Em* G* A*
letting a love song disappear before it's written. 
          D              G            Em        G                       
    And no one wants a tune about the 100th luftballoon that was seen 
Em                  G             A             Em                G
shooting from the window of your room, to be a spot against the sky's 
        A                   Em               G                  A
colossal gloom and land, deflated, in some neighbor state that's strewn with 
   Em         Em  G  A 
99 others.   

  Em               A                      D              A                Em
     8 Chinese brothers; well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide 
             G              A      
and sitting higher than the others,
               Em          G A
swinging his arms.

D                G              Em    G        
You would probably die before you shot up 9 miles high
         Em             G                  A 
Your eyes dilated as light played upon the sight
 Em             G            A    
Of TVC16 as it sings you goodnight
 Em            G                  A
Relaxed as hell and locked up in cell 45
Em                        Em  G  A 
I hope you're feeling better

Em               A   
51st way to leave your lover
 D              A                Em 		   G              A 
Admittedly, it doesn't seem to be as gentle or as clean as all the others
 Em          							G A
Even a scars all in the after hours of some Greenpoint bar

D                           G              Em                  G        
I told you, I can't listen, baby, 'bout the 4th time you were a lady
Em             G                  A 
and how your forthrightness betrayed a secret shyness
Em                       G                     A    
Stripped away by days of being hailed as "your highness"
               Em            G                  A
And what's new pussycat, as you were once a lionness
Em                   Em G  A 
They cut your claws out

D            G              Em                  G   
Kitten, not everyone's keen on lighting candle 17, 
             Em             G                  A 
the party's done, the cake's all gone, the plates are clean
	        Em             G                  A 
The chauffeur's near and from the cheerless mezzanine
                Em             G                  A 
And in just one year, this straight world could pay to see 
Em                        Em  G  A 
what they have been missing

Em                                   A   
You were caught kissing 8 chinese brothers
                 D              A                Em 		   G              A 
Well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide and sitting higher than the others
Em               G A
Staking with charm

Em                                               A   
And he says, "Lets get lost, let them send out alarms
Em                                          A   
He says, "Let's get crossed out and come to harm"
Em                                            A   
"Lets make the world's stupidest stand and truly mean it
Em                                   A   
Lets hit the limit of loss over lover's arms
No, lets exceed it"
