Mountain Goats – Night Light chords
Night Light, by The Mountain Goats, from the album Transcendental Youth. Not too sure about the A/B chords in the instrumental parts, but it's the best I can get from the key (Dmaj/Bmin) and the one live video of John Darnielle performing this that I found. ------------------- Standard tuning, no capo. Bm - x24432 Em - 022000 A - x02220 G - 320033 D - x00232 A/B - x2222x (can be played as an A because it's easier, but I think A/B is technically correct).BmPull my mask so tightEm Till it pinches my skin.G Bm Nerves strung so high:G A I Am A mandolin.Bm Jenny calls from Montana,G She's only passing through.D Probably never see her again, in this life, I guess,A Not sure what I'm gonna do.GPlug a night light in;BmLeave the porch light on.GBecause the small dark cornersBmHave designs on me.ALive like an outlaw,GClutching gold coins in his claw.Bm A/B G BmBmRoom full of ambitious young policemen,EmEverybody trying to make his mark.G DI was a red dot blinking on the screen up overhead;G A And then the room went dark.BmDream of maybe waking up somedayGAnd wanting you less than I do.D This is a dream, though:A It's never gonna come true.GPlug a night light in;BmLeave the porch light on.GBecause the small dark cornersBmAre establishing a colony.ALive like an outlaw,GClutching gold coins in his claw.Bm A/B G Bm A/B G GBm Can't ever set aside the sweetnessEmOf the days before the crews put up the border.G Bm Fields full of wet rainG A Cling tight to their memory forever.BmThink about Montana when I close my eyes;G Possibly Jenny's headed east.D Count a couple of stray hopes out loud;A May their numbers one day be increased.GPlug a night light in;BmLeave the porch light on.GBecause the small dark cornersBmBreathe like heavy animals.ALive like an outlaw,GClutching gold coins in his claw.Bm A/B until end. End on Bm.
