Joanna Newsom - Good Intentions Paving Company chords

      
GOOD INTENTIONS PAVING COMPANY

C FTwenty miles left to the shore
Am FHello my old country, hello
C GStars are just beginning to appear
DmAnd I have never in my life before been here
C FAnd it's my heart, not me, who cannot ply
Am F That base conclusion you may write
C G Watching me sit here bolt upright and cry
DmFor no good reason at the Eastern sky
CAnd the tilt of this strange nation
BbAnd the will to remain for the duration
Am BbWaving the flag, feeling it drag
CLike a bump on a bump on a log, baby
BbLike I'm in a fist fight with the fog, baby
AmStep-ball-change and a pirouette
BbAnd .. and 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 asks
C GI'll get this joy off of my chest at last
DmAnd I will love you 'til the noise has long since passed
C FAnd I did not mean to shout, just drive
Am FJust get us out, get home alive
C GA road too long to mention holds us up from the sea
DmLaid down by the good intentions paving company
CAll the weight of 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
Bb
CThis is blindness beyond all conceiving
BbWell, behind us the road is leaving, yeah, leaving
AmAnd falling back
BbLike a rope gone slack
GAnd the sauce strayed away but the ladle will stay
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
C DIt had a nice a ring to it
F CWhen the old opera house rang
Bb FSo with a song I'm all ran
G Am"Signed, sealed, delivered" I sang
C DAnd there is hesitation
F CAnd it always remains
Bb CConcerning you, me,
G AmAnd the rest of the gang
C DAnd in a quiet hour
F CI feel I see everything
Bb FAnd am in love with the hook
G AmUpon which everyone hangs
C D And I know you meant to show the extent
F CTo which you gave a god dang
Bb FIt rings real hot and real cold but I'm sold
G AmI am home on that range
Bb F And 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 Lord, you know it's a shame
Am Bb F When I only want for you to pull over and hold me
G Am'Til I can't remember my own name
C, F, Am, F C, G, Dm C, Bb, Am, Bb C, Bb, Am, Bb C, Bb, Am, Bb C, Bb, Am, Bb C
