Broken Bells - The Ghost Inside chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Great song by Broken Bells, pretty simple chords. 

This was compiled in response to a couple versions on here with either 
incorrect chords or incorrect lyrics (although, I can't seem to find the 
official lyrics anywhere, so these might still be wrong). This is compiled to
 the best of my ability using live videos and my own ear as a reference. 

Enjoy!


Standard tuning, no capo

Intro: Em D A  

Em         G            D      A
She sold her love to the modern man
Em         G            D             A 
Cause solid currency's the hardest to lend
Em         G               D            A
All of that money helps you cover your eyes
Em         G              D            A
Don't let the lady finger blow in your hand
       Em
Did it all

Chorus:

G            D  A    Em
    For that Dollar
G             D    A      Em
    She's a star tonight
G            D  A   
    Without warning 
         Em     G      A  D
She gave up the ghost inside


Em            G            D             
Just like a whiskey bottle drained on the
A
floor
Em            G            D       A
She got no future, just a love to endure
Em            G            D       A
This good samaritan shakin' her hand
Em            G            D       
Too late to leave him now, the sun's in her
A
bed
        Em
Give it up


Chorus:

G            D  A    Em
    For that Dollar
G             D    A      Em
    She's a star tonight
G            D  A   
    Without warning 
         Em     G      A  D
She gave up the ghost inside


Em     
  You call it chivalry
D            A
Never pull a punch for free

Em                         D           A
  You ever wonder why they had to move on  -  on
Em 
  This phony honor code
D              A 
 That puts you on your throne
Em
  A double standard
      D            A
You invoke when you want  -  want


Chorus:

G            D  A    Em
    For that Dollar
G             D    A      Em
    She's a star tonight
G            D  A   
    Without warning 
         Em     G      A  D
She gave up the ghost inside



Bridge: 

Em
Was it all for show
Am              D
Don't turn into one of them
Em 
Turn another page
Am
Trust me darlin
D
I'm carving them up 
                         Em
through the dust in your town
Am                  D
Crawling over rubble
Em
Just to sort it out
Am
Now I tend to wonder why 

 
End with:

Em D A
Em D A
