Okkervil River – White Shadow Waltz chords
[Verse]GAbandoned by all her admirersBmWild white shadow waltzCStands alone on a stair down the hallAm DJust one slip from a trip and a fall.[Verse]GIn a cold morning holding her lighterBmOne white shadow waltzCStirs, sputters and stallsAm D BmWakes, wavers, and walks right through her prison walls.[Bridge]Bm Bm F#She says the doorbell is ringingF# F# AGo see who it isAOur little island's sinking intoEmMist.[Verse]GA day came, a night went, it lightenedBmAn animal broke his way outCMoped through a scattering crowdAm DAnd crawled back to his circus shell.[Verse]GAnd circling the zoo's screaming clientsBmWas white shadow waltzCDeaf to their torn breaths and callsAm D GWait take a look closer hey he's hardly moving at all.[Bridge]Bm Bm F#She says there's someone knockingF# F# AGo see who it isAOur world is shaking I guessEmOur little world is breaking in the[Verse]GPresence of all our despisersBmWe'll falter and crawl into our bedCThe world is a black shadow bledAm DAnd what is this tune in my head?[Outro]GShe says it's just the white wind when it whimpersBmAnd it's just the black rain when it squallsCIt's just white meat whistling a waltzAm D GIt's just nine hands wiping a white shadow off of the walls.
