Joanna Newsom - Good Intentions Paving Company chords version 1


C FTwenty miles left to the show
Am FHello, my old country, hello
C GStars are just beginning to appear
DAnd I have never in my life before been here
C FAnd it's my heart, not me, who cannot drive
Am FAt which conclusion you arrived
C GWatching me sit here bolt upright and cry
DmFor no good reason at the Eastering sky
C And the tilt of this strange nation
BbAnd the will to remain for the duration
AmWaving the flag
BbFeeling it drag
CLike a bump on a bump on a log, baby
BbLike I'm in a fist fight with a fog, baby
AmStep-ball-change and a pirouette
BbAnd I regret, I regret
GHow I said to you, "honey, just open your heart"
F CWhen I've got trouble even opening a honey jar
BbAnd that right there is where we are...
C FAnd I been 'fessing double fast
Am FAddressing questions nobody asked
C GI'll get this joy off of my chest at last
DmAnd I will love you 'til the noise has long since passed
(same as just above) And I did not mean to shout, just drive Just get us out, dead or alive A road too long to mention, lord, it's something to see! Laid down by the good intentions paving company
CAll the way to the thing we've been playing at, darlin'
BbI can see that you're wearing your staying hat, darlin'
AmFor the time being all is well
BbWon't you love me a spell?
(same as just above) This is blindness beyond all conceiving Well, behind us the road is leaving, yeah, leaving And falling back Like a rope gone slack
G Well, I saw straight away that the lay was steep
F CBut I fell for you, honey, as easy as falling asleep
BbAnd that right there is the course I keep...
C DAnd no amount of talking
F CIs going to soften the fall
Bb FBut, like after the rain, step out
G AmOf the overhang, that's all
It had a nice a ring to it When the ol' opry house rang So with a solemn auld lang Signed, sealed, delivered, I sang And there is hesitation And it always remains Concerning you, me, And the rest of the gang And in our quiet hour I feel I see everything And am in love with the hook Upon which everyone hangs And I know you meant to show the extent To which you gave a goddang You ranged real hot and real cold but I'm sold I am home on that range
Bb FAnd I do hate to fold
G AmRight here at the top of my game
Bb FWhen I've been trying with my whole heart and soul
G AmTo stay right here in the right lane
Bb FBut it can make you feel over and old
G AmLord, you know it's a shame
Bb FWhen I only want for you to pull over and hold me
G Am'Til I can't remember my own name
