Kill the Lights - Glorious Sons (2016)


[Intro]

Am C Fmaj7 G
Am C Fmaj7 G  


[Chorus 1]

         Am                             C
Kill the lights and put your nightdress on

       Fmaj7                                    G
Have a last cigarette and leave one out for the morn'

         Am                        C
Kill the lights, babe I'm too damn tired

         Fmaj7                              G
We can't fuck tonight, I'm workin' double tomorrow

         Am                         C
Kill the lights and let it kill the fire

              Fmaj7                           G
I'm comin' undone. I'm not even here when I'm not gone

Fmaj7
   Kill the lights and baby shoot that gun

G                           E7
   Kill the lights and baby right this wrong!

A5                              D5
   We got married and I don't remember

                A5                                 D5            *fill
I just kinda surrendered because I didn't want the summer to end

A5                                       D5
  Her daddy had some money that he could lend us

                     A5                         D5             *fill
And so I took her to Paris, and I tried to be a Renaissance man


[Pre-Chorus]

* (Note: I'm almost certain the lyrics in the final two lines here are wrong. He switches the second line up 
from one performance to another, and the final one just is too slurred to be 100% sure what he's saying. The 
chords are right though, as far as I could tell.)  

           F5
But we were too young, too quick to jump

G5                         E5
Livin' off of life, that's nothin' at all

        F5                          G5   E5
We got a far fly, far far to fly y'know, heyyyyyy


[Chorus 2]

         Am                             C
Kill the lights and put your nightdress on

       Fmaj7                                    G
Have a last cigarette and leave one out for the morn'

         Am                        C
Kill the lights, babe I'm too damn tired

         Fmaj7                              G
We can't fuck tonight, I'm workin' double tomorrow

         Am                         C
Kill the lights and let it kill the fire

              Fmaj7                           G
I'm comin' undone. I'm not even here when I'm not gone

Fmaj7
   Kill the lights and baby shoot that gun

G                           E7
   Kill the lights and baby right this wrong!

[Verse 2]

A5                                   D5
   I took her dad's caddy out for a ride

                 A5                              D5           *fill
And I never came back. Lord, I couldn't stand to see her face

A5                                D5
  All she kept doin was talking about

                    A5                              D5           *fill 
All the times we've had, and that another man would take my place


[Pre-Chorus]

           F5
But we were too young, too quick to jump

G5                         E5
Livin' off of life, that's nothin' at all

        F5                          G5   E5
We got a far fly, far fly to fly y'know, heyyyyyy


[Chorus 3]

         Am                             C
Kill the lights and put your nightdress on

       Fmaj7                                    G
Have a last cigarette and leave one out for the morn'

         Am                        C
Kill the lights, babe I'm too damn tired

         Fmaj7                              G
We can't fuck tonight, I'm workin' double tomorrow

         Am                         C
Kill the lights and let it kill the fire

              Fmaj7                           G
I'm comin' undone. I'm not even here when I'm not gone

Fmaj7
   Kill the lights and baby shoot that gun

G                           E7
   Kill the lights and baby right this wrong!

I hate to complain because I know that the poster is contributing to the community with little personal gain but... Of the 4 people who rated this version as excellent....have any of you ever actually heard this song?!!? The lyrics are about 70% wrong...you got the first verse and first half of chorus right, but I swear that second verse, bridge, and pre chorus are completely made up!! Its hard to learn a song when the lyrics are a mess and the invented lyrics don't match the rhythm of the song...

Thanks for the criticism. At the time of writing this tab, the lyrics were different and/or unfinished. They were figured out by ear based on the videos that I attatched at the top of the tab. Cheers
