Intro:
Em  Am  G  D x3
Em  Am  D

G           Am            C
Charlemagne shakes in the streets
G            Am           C
Gideon makes love to the suites
     Em           Am
and Holly's not invincible
    F                 C
in fact she's in the hospital
    Em             Am           D
not far from that bar where we met
        Em         Am      G     D
on that first night

Em  Am  G  D x3
Em  Am  D

G                  Am            C
Charlemagne pulls street corner scams
     G             Am                C
and Gideon's got a pipe made from a Pringles can
 Em        Am           F             C  
Holly's insatiable, she still looks incredible
        Em                   Am           D
But she don't look like that same girl we met

        Em           Am
on that first night
              G           D               Em  Am  G  D
when she was golden with floorlight and beer
        Em           Am
on that first night
     G                D          Em     Am D
she slept like she'd never been scared


Piano Solo


         Em         Am
And then last night
           G           D             Em       Am  G  D
She said "Words alone never could save us."
         Em         Am
And then last night
     G             D             Em  Am  D
She cried and she told us about Jesus

Em           Am
Holly's inconsolable
F                 C
Unhinged and uncontrollable
           Em           Am         D 
'Cause we can't get as high as we got    

PAUSE
     
on that first night


D   Em   C x3

D   Em   C 
Boys and girls in America x5

D
 
...                           Em
Don't bother talking to the guys
           C        D
with their hot soft eyes
                  Em     C     D
you know they're already taken
                               Em           C          D
Don't even speak to all those sequencer and beats boys

           Em            C             D
when they kiss they spit white noise (White Noise) x7



Gorgeous song, enjoy.
