E

[Verse 1]
(On E chords lift your ring finger from the D string on upstroke to get the D-E transition sound)

EFound these in a box at the bus stop
EMy name's at the bottom
EBut I'm nowhere to be found
EI really get around they say
ESo I take these sightless creatures home
EThen I fear them so to tremble
FFor I'm no mother, I
EJust some random defender
[Chorus 1]
EI remember running chest high
FIn the steppe grass
CAt the dawn of man
DWhen we got along
CI remember running chest high
DIn the steppe grass
BbAt the dawn of man
AmWhen we got along
[Verse 2] C F C G
CWe raced along the ground
FI chased it out of town
CThe sun's the meanest easy target
GThat I know
CWe played a tender game
FOf kissing cobra tag
CWe slept astride our horses
GTied fast in their manes
C
CMy friend would touch my face
FAnd leave a star or two
CThe years left constellations
GOf our wild language
CWhat drove the sun away
FI'm far too small to know
CA gaslight's winter
GMarches on refinery legs
C [Transition]
C DWhat can I tell you now?
C DIt sped away along the canal
AmAnd drummed mosquito clouds
DFrom their dens of hot tires for miles
AmAnd drummed mosquito clouds
DFrom their dens of hot tires for miles
[Chorus 2]
EI remember running chest high
FIn the steppe grass
CAt the dawn of man
CI remember running chest high
DIn the steppe grass
BbAt the dawn of man
AmWhen we got along
[Outro]
AmOh, petroleum
AmYou're the top predator now
DSovereign, lover, liar
CBut you're uninspired too
FAccording to your anthem, you
AmOh, petroleum
AmYou're the top predator now
DAnd I am just desire
COne dirty diamond
DSome random defender
CI sold my flesh that I might die
DSo the world will spin
DAnd my cubs won't cry
C DI have to be the sun for them
FOh, petroleum
AbYou are beautiful
Am D5But so am I
AmI'm a dirty diamond
D5Lying looking at the sky
AmI'm a dirty diamond
D5Lying looking at the sky
