chorus 1:
F                          C
  Could have been a rotten apple
        G     F
Full of holes
                        C
Could have been an open wine bottle
         G
Ready to go
      Am              C          G
Or it could have been eagle on a pole

Verse 2:
         F
Well the beauty of the seasons
     Am
Can rip a man up whole
           F
And what's happening while you're sleeping
         C
You will never know

Chorus 2:
F                     C
  Never trust a truly wayward
          G    F
Wandering soul
                     C
Never trust a wanted woman
              G
Who can't say no
        Am             C          G
And you never trust an eagle on a pole

Verse 3:
          F
I've seen pictures of my face from
        Am

F                              C

                G    F
Through morning snow
                             C
Looked like darkness and the light
             G
Going toe to toe
       Am                  C          G
And it looked just like an eagle on a pole

Get out! Get out!

Verse 4:
          F
Something moving, something floating
          Am
Something falling soft en slow

It was getting super natural

But you never know

Chorus 4:
F                       C
  Getting ready for the girls
                 G     F
At the burlesque show
                      C
Getting ready for the night time
              G
Street lights glowing
    Am             C          G
Get ready for that eagle on a pole
