Elliott Smith
King's Crossing

Capo: 1st Fret


Am			F

C	    G			Dm

Am			F
The King's crossing was the main attraction
C	    G			Dm
Dominoes falling in a chain reaction
Am			F
The scraping subject ruled by fear told me
C	    G			Dm
Whiskey works better than beer
Am			F
The judge is on vinyl, decisions aren't final
C	    G			Dm
And nobody gets a reprieve
Am			F
And every wave is tidal
C	    G			C
If you hang around you're going to get wet
Am			F                               C G Dm
I can't prepare for death any more than I already have

Am                    F
All you can do now is watch the shelves
    C          G            C
The game looks easy, that's why it sells

C                    B/Am
Frustrated fireworks inside your head
          Am              	F
Are going to stand and deliver dark instead
C                      B/Am
The method acting that pays my bills
          Am            	F
Keeps the fat man feeding in Beverly Hills
C                             B/Am
I got a heavy metal mouth, it hurls obscenity
          Am           	F
And I get my check from the trash treasury
C                             B/Am
Because I took my own insides out

Am                      F
It don't matter cause I have no sex life
    C              G      Dm
And all I wanna do now is inject my ex-wife
I've seen the movie

 F                  C G Dm
And I know what happens
It's Christmas time
And the needle's on the tree
  C               G        Dm
A skinny Santa is bringing something to me
His voice is overwhelming
But his speech is slurred
      C    G          C
And I only understand every other word

C			B/Am
Open your parachute and grab your gun
	Am			F
Float down like an omen, a setting sun
C			B/Am
Read the part and return at five
	Am			F
It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive
But I don't care if I fuck up
I'm going on a date
With a rich white lady
Ain't life great?
C			B/Am
Gi'me one good reason not to do it
(Because I love you)
Am			F
So do it.

C   G   Dm

Am			F

C		G		Dm

Am			F
This is the place where time reverses
C		G		Dm
And dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
Am			F
Instruments shine on a silver tray

C                G		C
Don't let me get carried away
C                G  		C
Don't let me get carried away
C               G       Dm
Don't let me be carried away
