Buenos Aires Beach by The War on Drugs  (off of Wagonwheel Blues)

Capo 6th 

Intro:  C  Fmaj7  C  Fmaj7  C Fmaj7  C   Fmaj7   
          C  Fmaj7    C   G    C


My barricades feel open now

       Fmaj7          C
So I leave behind the bridge

                                      Fmaj7          C
With a flag with a western wave and a simple stitch to fix 

                                       Fmaj7             C 
I'll hold myself together now as you take me through the ditch

Where the sky crumbled on the floors 

You'll sweep me off of my back

          Fmaj7            C              Fmaj7 
You'll save me from the rumble you spoke of before 

          C             Fmaj7 
And the one who saved you 

         C                 Fmaj7 
Ain't the one who you were banking on

            C             G             C 
When your highs were cutting through my lows

Bridge:   C     Fmaj7    C    Fmaj7  


Enter through the side door please

       Fmaj7               C 
I know you wish to speak with me

Of old neglected promises 

    Fmaj7       C
Of stolen souvenirs

How you could hear the ocean 

           Fmaj7           C 
But you could not see the breeze

When the sky was setting on a Buenos Aires beach

                    Fmaj7       C      Fmaj7 
And the sun was shining on the one I wish to see

         C        Fmaj7        C
And the fates are shifting under land

             Fmaj7          C
You're beating on the floors

          Fmaj7             C               Fmaj7
You're sleeping on the same ones you've been sweeping on

           C              Fmaj7 
You're the one that saved me

          C               Fmaj7 
And the one that I was banking on 

               C             G             C
When your highs were cutting through my lows


So hold me up against the tree 

You used to measure me in feet

      C     Fmaj7         C
And set your sights to green

And all the cross-town boys and on

G                                            C
They show up with the sea shells in their eyes

  Fmaj7              C 
But you know what they want

By the glow of your skin

And you can overdress for him

                         C      Fmaj7 
But it will soon grow old

Bridge:   C    Fmaj7  (x3) 


C                         Fmaj7
And this winter it came to pass 

C                         Fmaj7 
So much slower than the last

C                       Fmaj7
And now there's nothing left to grasp

In our hands and nothing left to catch

           C             Fmaj7 
So they'll speak of the past 

           C             Fmaj7 
In the future perfect tense

Of places we will go

                  C    Fmaj7 
Before we grow old

Outro:  C   Fmaj7  (repeat as many as needed)
