Destroyer - Rubies tab



"Rubies"


F
Dueling cyclones jackknife
         G
They got eyes for your wife
        C                       F
and the blood that lives in her heart


FM7          G            FM7            G

FM7
Cast myself towards infinity - Trust me, I had my reasons
G
  Had a dress for every season, it was worth it
FM7
Pulled into town relatively free of hassle - I
G
  Secured a room at the castle, it paid for itself
FM7
Checked out my surroundings, headed down to Thornton Park
G
  Find your way, discover that things are dark
FM7
Shadowy figures babbling on about typical bullshit
       G
I wave bye to them in a modern way
                                        C*       Am*
and increase my stay at the dock of the   bay


   C*                   Am*

(same as first)

Quiet, Ruby, someone's coming
Approach with stealth
Oh, it's just your precious American Underground
and it is born of wealth
With not a writer in the lot
Sapphires vie for your attention
She dances they mean well in their way
The Priest says "Please, I can't stand my knees
And I can't bear her raven tresses caught up in the breeze like that!"

C*         Am*          C*          Am*

FM7        G            FM7         G
FM7        G            FM7         G


(same as first)
Thats it doctor, do your worst
Cut me open, remove this thirst
Hidden, but near
A series of visions, I won't repeat them here
I won't repeat them here


C*         Am*          C*          Am*


        FM7         G
Typical me, typical me
FM7                   G
   I gave my cargo to the sea
           FM7
I gave the water what it always wanted to

C       Am                 C
be      Ahhhhhhh  Ahhhh Ah Ah  AhAh
Am
Ahhhhhhh  Ahhhh Ah Ah

FM7
"Look to the West!
    G                              FM7                      G
Ah, look, it's no contest" - Proud Mary said as she lit the fuse
  FM7                       G
I wanted you. I wanted your blues
FM7   G     C*      Am*
 -    Yo-ur Blues

C*     Am*


FM7                   G
"All good things must come to an end
    FM7                    G
The bad ones just go on forever"
      FM7
Isn't that what I just said?
      G
It is Now and it is Never
      FM7
It is Now and it is Never
      G
It is Now and it is Never
      C
It is Now and it is Never

Am         C
Ahhhhhhh  Ahhhh Ah Ah  AhAh
Am
Ahhhhhhh  Ahhhh Ah Ah

FM7        G            FM7         G

FM7        G            FM7         G
FM7        G            FM7         G
FM7        G            FM7         G


(then fingerpick something like this:
   FM7                          G
e--------0------0------0---------------0------0------0--------|
B----1------1------1-----1---1----3------3------3-----3---3---|
G------2------2------2-----2--------4------4------4-----4-----|
D--3-----3------3------3--------5-----5------5------5---------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------|

and when the lyrics come back in it the same chords but in half
the time)

      FM7                         G
Don't worry about her, she's been known to appreciate
    FM7                  G      FM7                  G
the elegance of an empty room - Look I made you this broom
            FM7                G
A predicate warning to the sun - this Night advances

Am!     Am$     C!    C7!     (see Below)
on...


    Am!  Am$  C!   C7!
e---12---8----X----X------|
B---13---10---8----8------|
G---14---9----9----9------|
D-------------10---8------|
A-------------10---10-----|
E-------------------------|

    FM7
The sketchy crowd shows me drawings, they're alright
   G
An alternately dim and frightful waste
    FM7
Now come on honey let's go outside
       G
You disrupt the world's disorder just by virtue of your grace, you know
 FM7                 G  FM7     G
 -  I didn't want to go  -  but leave I must...
   FM7
As gratifying as this dust was

C!     C7!
Am!     Am$     C!    C7!
Am!     Am$     C!    C7!

F                         G
Please don't wake me from this - my golden slumber -
     F
I am proud to be a part of this number!

C!     C7!
Am!     Am$     C!    C7!
Am!     Am$     C!    C7!
