Josh Ritter - Lillian Egypt tab

-Lillian, Egypt-
-Josh Ritter-
Because the alt. tuning, the chords
are not formed the same, I listed 
the way to form them at the bottom.

Alt. Tuning: D-A-D-F#-A-D
Capo 3

I remember back in Illinois I found her 
    F#m                                           Em11
The lily of the valley the lily of the West was a rose 
The daughter of the biggest big town banker 
   F#m							   Em11
He kept her like a princess I stole her like the Fort Knox gold

She used to pour Four Roses like it was going down the chimney 
Like the bottle was on fire or the boiler was about to blow 
She was up on the table when we hit Missouri 
Dancing with a movie man he was holding her a little too close

Bm             F#m         Em11
La di di da da da da da da da

He made her the star of the silent movies 
But all she did was mouth the words all she did was mouth the words, "Oh no!" 
And he cast me as the villain as the sheriff's worst enemy 
I practiced falling off of buildings and out windows

La di di da da da da da da da

The last time I saw she was tied to the train tracks 
I was back there with the extras riding on a tiger roan 
The villain on the left with the studio mustache 
Winking at Lillian blowing kisses from the second row

La di di da da da da da da da
