Dave Rawlings Machine – Method Acting Cortez The Killer chords

Chords:
Transpose:
EmThere's no beginning to the story
Bm7A bookshelf sinks into the sand
CAnd a language learned, forgot in turn
G D/F#Studied once again
EmIt's a shocking bit of footage
Bm7Viewed on a shitty TV screen
CYou can squint at snow and static
G D/F#To make out what it means
EmAnd keep stretching that antenna
Bm7Hoping that it will come clear
CI need some reception, a higher message
G D/F#Please tell me what to feel
[Chorus]
C D G G/B'Cause I don't know what tomorrow brings
C D G G/BIt's alive with such possibilities
C D G G/BBut I know that I feel better when I sing
C B7add4Burdens are lifted from me
EmThat's my voice rising
EmSo T-Bone, please keep the tape rolling
Bm7Gil keep strumming that guitar
CWe need a record of our failures
G D/F#We must document our love
EmI sat too long in my silence
Bm7Grown too old on my pain
CTo shed this skin, be born again
G D/F#It starts with an ending
[Chorus]
C D G G/BAnd I don't know what tomorrow brings
C D G G/BIt's full of such possibilities
C D G G/BBut I know that I feel better when I sing
C B7add4Burdens are lifted from me
EmThat's my voice rising
[Solo] [Bridge]
C Bm7It's not a movie, no private screening
Am7 DThis method acting—I call it living
C Bm7It's like a fountain, the door is open
Am7 DWe have a problem with no solution
C B7add4But to love and to be loved
[Solo] [Chorus]
C D G G/BSo thank you friends for the time we shared
C D G G/BYour love stays with me like sunlight and air
C D G G/BAnd though I truly wish I could keep hanging around here
C B7add4My joy is covering me
EmSoon I will disappear
[Solo]
Em7He came dancing across the water
DWith his galleons and guns
Am7Looking for the new world
In the palace in the sun
Em7On the shore lay Montezuma
DWith his coca leaves and pearls
Am7In his halls, he often wondered
The secrets of the world
Em7And his subjects gathered round him
DLike the leaves around a tree
Am7In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see
Em7And the women all were beautiful
DAnd the men stood straight and strong
Am7They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on [Solo] (over Cortez verse progression)
Em7Hate was just a legend
DAnd war was never known
Am7The people worked together
And they lifted many stones
Em7Then they carried them to the flatlands
DBut they died along the way
Am7And they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today
Em7And I know she's living there
DAnd she loves me to this day
Am7I just can't remember when
Or how I lost my way [Solo] (back to Method Acting verse progression)
