Withered Hand - California chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Recording on 'New Gods' is Capo 3.

During the verse, both the Am and C have a pull off/hammer on on the B string, first fret. The Em has 
a similar variation on the G string, second fret. 

Lyrics should be correct except for the line that sounds like "I keep slipping on the tossing like 
I'm sick again." I have no idea what he says there!

Am              C
After the longest night
Em              Am
Stepping out into a new daylight
Am              C
Beer ice cold in my hand
Em                     Dm
Like I’m on my way, like I had 
Am              C
Plenty not to talk about
Em                                              Am
Stopping for a burger at the in-and-out, waiting in line 
Am      C
For the prophecy
Em                      Dm
How we took our turns to be
Am                              C
Strung out like some powder in a bag of skin
Em                      Am
Last night I could have sworn I was dying
Am                      C
Cicadas singing at my window, signs 
Em                     Dm      
Proclaim the end is nigh
        C       Em
But not tonight

Am      C
California, ooh
Em                      Am
I keep slipping on the tossing like I’m sick again
Am                    C
Ooh white light white heat all night
      Em                          Am
Heart beating in my chest like a kettle drum
Am      C
California, ooh
Em                       Am
I keep slipping on the tossing like I’m sick again
Am                    C
Ooh white light white heat all night
      Em                         Am
Heart beating in my chest like a jackhammer

Am                      C
What of the unfinished symphonies
            Em                                Am
Immigration infamies, my head rings like the liberty bell
Am                          C
Sweating like a winner on a hot day
            Em                          Dm
Sinner, say what, say nothing if you’ve nothing to sell
Am                      C
Every time I open up my mealy mouth 
              Em                               Am
This tiny wee sound comes out, I’m spitting it out in the doubt
Am                      C
I hear my heart like a back-beat
          Em                      Dm
Something incomplete, no midnight choir
    Am          Em
No love over desire

Chorus x 2 

Just add some horsewhip sound effects and that's it! Hope you enjoy!
