Night Light, by The Mountain Goats, from the album Transcendental Youth. Not too sure about the A/B chords in the instrumental parts, but it's the best I can get from the key (Dmaj/Bmin) and the one live video of John Darnielle performing this that I found. ------------------- Standard tuning, no capo. Bm - x24432 Em - 022000 A - x02220 G - 320033 D - x00232 A/B - x2222x (can be played as an A because it's easier, but I think A/B is technically correct). Bm Pull my mask so tight Em Till it pinches my skin. G Bm Nerves strung so high: G A I Am A mandolin. Bm Jenny calls from Montana, G She's only passing through. D Probably never see her again, in this life, I guess, A Not sure what I'm gonna do. G Plug a night light in; Bm Leave the porch light on. G Because the small dark corners Bm Have designs on me. A Live like an outlaw, G Clutching gold coins in his claw. Bm A/B G Bm Bm Room full of ambitious young policemen, Em Everybody trying to make his mark. G D I was a red dot blinking on the screen up overhead; G A And then the room went dark. Bm Dream of maybe waking up someday G And wanting you less than I do. D This is a dream, though: A It's never gonna come true. G Plug a night light in; Bm Leave the porch light on. G Because the small dark corners Bm Are establishing a colony. A Live like an outlaw, G Clutching gold coins in his claw. Bm A/B G Bm A/B G G Bm Can't ever set aside the sweetness Em Of the days before the crews put up the border. G Bm Fields full of wet rain G A Cling tight to their memory forever. Bm Think about Montana when I close my eyes; G Possibly Jenny's headed east. D Count a couple of stray hopes out loud; A May their numbers one day be increased. G Plug a night light in; Bm Leave the porch light on. G Because the small dark corners Bm Breathe like heavy animals. A Live like an outlaw, G Clutching gold coins in his claw. Bm A/B until end. End on Bm.
