Mountain Goats – Night Light chords

Chords
Transpose:
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 tight
Em 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 corners
BmHave designs on me.
ALive like an outlaw,
GClutching gold coins in his claw.
Bm A/B G Bm
BmRoom 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 someday
GAnd 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 corners
BmAre establishing a colony.
ALive like an outlaw,
GClutching gold coins in his claw.
Bm A/B G Bm A/B G G
Bm Can't ever set aside the sweetness
EmOf the days before the crews put up the border.
G Bm Fields full of wet rain
G 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 corners
BmBreathe like heavy animals.
ALive like an outlaw,
GClutching gold coins in his claw.
Bm A/B until end. End on Bm.
