James Vincent Mcmorrow – Down The Burning Ropes chords

Capo on first fret
Am G Am
Am G F G Am F G Am

Intro: Am 

AmWhen the hills let go
Slowly fade into the water like some ancient lover
GOn a ship filled with ghosts
AmIt's something to behold
AmWhen the paper thin girls
With twisting little braids in their hair,
GThey take off their coats and throw
Pebbles and stones from the side of the boat,
FCrying out
G AmThe stones they float, the stones they float
F G Am Oh my God, the stones they float, the stones they float
AmDown the burning ropes
Past the places where the steal beams meet concrete skies
GYou make your bed under the moonlight
AmI think it's time we said goodbye
AmCause nothing moves in the warm air
And words that once would cut like a knife,
GThey just hang in the cloud and you're
Pushed by the lord,
FBut you're pulled by the crowds and
G AmYou're overboard, you're overboard
F G AmOh my God, she's overboard, she's overboard
Am G F (last two strumming)My love she's overboard
Am G F (strumming) She's overboard
Am G FMy love she's over board
Some uuuhs and aaaaahs with Am G F
AmNot a shell unbroken
In the valley where my heartache and the timbers lay
GIt's not the time to be hanging around here
AmYou know what some might say
AmThat people get too reckless
That even with the simplest of crimes They leave, blood behind,
G FAs I clean the knife for the very last time
G AmI think she knows, I think she knows
F G AmOh my God, I think she knows, I think she knows
I think she know Uuuuhs and aAaahhs with Am G F Enjoy
