Jim James
State of The Art (A.E.I.O.U)

Standard Tuning

Intro: Dm     C     G     Dm     X2

         Dm      C   G   Dm
Daylight come
         Dm     C   G   Dm
Daylight go
                 Dm       C   G   Dm
How far will it reach
              Dm         C   G   Dm
Ain't nobody know
                  Dm      C   G   Dm
And when the dawn breaks
                 Dm      C   G   Dm
The cradle will fall
              Dm      C   G   Dm
And down come baby
           Dm       C   G   Dm
Cradle and all
                        Dm     C   G   Dm
Now I know you need the dark
                    Dm     C   G   Dm
Just as much as the sun
                      Dm    C   G   Dm
But you're signing on forever
                    Dm      C   G   Dm
When you ink it in blood

(Hit beat with thumb on guitar)

I used my state of the art
Supposed to make for better living
Are we better human beings
We've got our wires all crossed
Our tubes are all tied
And I'm straining to remember
Just what it means to be alive
A life worth living
Now you can feel it in your chest
Building like little bullets
Just building up the nest
And you build it up strong
And you fill it up with love
And you pray for good rain
All from the lord above


I used my state of the art
Now don't you forget it
It ain't using me
Cause when the power goes out
I got over me
Cause the powers going out
I mean the powers going out
I mean it the powers going out
I really mean it the powers going out
