The Gaslight Anthem - High Lonesome chords


Tuning: Half-step Down!!


Intro:

| B | E | B | E | G#m | E | G#m | E F# |


Verse 1:
G#mSo the ambulances came,
C#m F#They took your pulse and packed up your things.
G#mAnd the papers read,
B F#Some boys forget what heartache brings.
G#mAnd the pounding in the streets
C#m F#Was your heart in four/four time.
G#mAnd the taste of defeat
B F# E F#Was never too far from your mind.
Chorus:
G#m E B F#And Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand,
G#m E B F# I always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis.
G#m EAnd in my head there's all these classic cars,
B F#And outlaw cowboy bands
G#m E B F#I always kinda sorta wished I was someone else.
Verse 2:
G#mSo gravity came,
C#m F#And stole the temple that the school boys praised
G#m,And the crowds shuffled in.
B F# G#mYou're getting drinks for the same boys who once bought you everything.
C#mAnd the powder on the bar
F# G#mWas just this one time, the powder on the bar
B F# E F#Was just this one night, and only to get by.
Repeat Chorus Bridge:
G#m E F# There were southern accents
G#m E F#On the radio as I drove home.
G#mAnd at night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
E F# G#mIt's a pretty good song, maybe you know the rest...
E F#Maybe you know the rest.
Repeat Chorus Outro:
G#m EWhen our boots they hit the ground, |
B F# |<--x3 They made a high and lonesome sound |
G#m E BWhen our boots they hit the ground down from the clouds,
F# They made a high and lonesome sound.
