Small Talk Relations by Tift Merritt on "Traveling Alone" Ok, so she plays this on piano but if you want the chords for guitar here they are as I've figured them: (No capo). All chords in song= C, Am, A#, F, Em. *Note: add fun walk-downs in between chords for that bluesy feel. C Am Skipped a stone and watched it go C Am the arc and then the undertoe C Am Em F thinking a day is something like a prayer So much to ask you started soft Then the wait of locks come off In the end you just hope someone's there CHORUS: C Em F Cuz all these small talk relations C Em F No they ain't nothin' for me C-Em A# F C No nobody here knows the way that I feel VERSE There's no one to answer to Just the dark and me and you All the angels standin' round just wishin' For the drag there of your smoke Taste of skin, scent of hope Raise their skirts up when no words are rising CHORUS Small Talk relations I can't hear one thing from you Don't nobody here at all know the way that I feel BRIDGE G Workman in the street below C Softly play a radio G C Hear my static through the traffic A# Crowd just turns to leave F Secret current underneath Em C Cannot be heard above the racket CHORUS Enjoy! Tift is awesome!
