Bright Eyes Beginners Mind chords version 3
This is the correct version of Beginner’s Mind that Conor uses live. Track 8 of The People's Key, Bright Eyes' final album. Capo 4D F#Hold on tight beginners mind,Bm AThe wheel is spinning tooEm AFast to make your moveF# BmThe worst must be assumedD F# Oh how they'll try to pull and pryBm AAway what you know nowEm ABeat and beat it outF# BmLeave a drum that makes no soundG F# Em AA snuff film on a Jumbo-tron for all the world to seeEm AA cocktail napkin epitaphD Bm Some psychobabble telegramEm AMessage written in the sandD BmThe tide rolls inEm ASwear you'll do the oppositeD BmOf all those tangled hypocritesEm A D Who say that the experiment has failedBmDon't go thereGYou're getting nowhereAYou're getting nowhereD F#Stay a while my inner childBm AI'd like to learn your trickEm A Know what makes you tickF# BmNurse you when you're sickD F#Oh how you've grown so cynicalBm AHard lines carved in your faceEm AThe sunshine so clichéF# Bm Just like love and painG F# Em A You tried your best on the Rorschach test but there's just nothing to seeEm A Heard terabytes of perfect pitchD BmSome universal eleganceEm A Stack the seventh and the fifthD BmAlong the gridEm ASwear you’ll be the oppositeD BmOf all the stilted hypocritesEm A D Bm You know what made you infamous to them, don't you?G You keep starting overAYou keep starting overF#You keep starting overBmYou keep starting overGKeep starting overAKeep starting overD F#Hold on tight beginners mindBm A The currents far too strongEm AIt will carry you alongF# BmTill you're just like everyoneD F#Stay a while my inner childBm AI'd like to learn your trickEm A Know what makes you tickF# BmNurse you when you're sickG F# Em A The other Capo 1 version of this song has the right tonality, but in the wrongCapo position. I use Barre chords on the F#, Bm, G and the A chord for the “getting nowhere” and “starting over” lines to give it a fuller sound.
