Eleanor Friedberger - My Mistakes chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
My absolute favorite song on the album, it's quite simply played yet incredibly
fun to play along. It's just a C and F the entire time (sounds best to play bar chords)

 C
You know i do my best thinking when I'm flying down the bridge,
 F
Humming to myself and kicking up my kicks.
 C
Jiggling all around half-afraid for my life, I hope I don't crash like that night last summer,
 F
Back when the bridge was just a wooden path, Bouncing around like he said it was 1956
 C


Chorus:
                     F
I thought I'd learn from my mistakes, I thought he'd learn from my mistakes,
                          C
I thought you'd give me the right advice, I thought he let me in for one last time.
 F         C


 F
The planks rattle around like an old-timey movie,
In tube-top and shorts that Vice called "pull-me-down"
 C
she's got kind of a native vibe before that was so cool
                                                                               F
She's got kind of a native vibe before I even knew who was who
 C
And he's ignoring me like it's 2001
 F
Why keep time traveling if it doesn't get better on the second time around
 C
Why keep time traveling if it doesn't get better on the second time around

Chorus:
                     F
I thought I'd learn from my mistakes, I thought he'd learn from my mistakes,
                          C
I thought you'd give me the right advice, I thought he let me in for one last time.
 F         C

 F
I wore the same outfit on the day the Hasid
Followed me in his car along Park, not Avenue,
 C
But the one in Brooklyn, on an early Sunday morning,
I'm carrying an umbrella and talking on the phone
 F
My mom said run, and I ran,
I crashed down Baker, cut my head and my knees
 C
The ambulance was called by a guy his friend called Guru
 F
They were visiting from California, and I swear they,
I swear they, I swear they,
                                    C
I swear they saved my life

Chorus: (x2)
                     F
I thought i'd learn from my mistakes, I thought he'd learn from my mistakes,
                          C
I thought you'd give me the right advice, I thought he let me in for one last time.

Outro:  F     C  (repeat until fade)
