The Menzingers – Burn After Writing chords
This is The Menzinger's song 'Burn After Writing', second track from their latest record: 'On the Impossible Past'. It's an acoustic version, with a fairly loose structure in comparison to the technicality of the record. Verse 1:D BmHere's to you, the same chords that I stoleA DFrom a song that I once heardBm AThe Same melody I borrowed from the voidD BmI'd rather observe than structure a narrativeAThe characters are thin;D BmThe plot does not developA DIt ends where it beginsLink; D, Bm, A (x2) Verse 2:DIt's on the screen, in paperbacksBm AIn section 8 and cul-de-sacsDElectro haikus and drunk sonnetsBm AAre moving me alongEmAlongLink: G, D, G, D Chorus: (x2)DYou cut my hairBm AYou left red ink everywhereEmDo my hands tell a story?AIs it boring?Link (Palm Muted): D, Bm, A Verse 3: (Palm-Muted)DWhat I'd give to force your sighBm AWhat I'd give to see you cryDWhat I'd give for your caressBmTo see your blue cotton dressABalled up on the floorDCertain memories are the problemBm A DCertain drunken lines are the shameBmSeven hundred miles and four yearsA DI can't fight the flame; it burnsGBurns, and it burns and it burns.Chorus: (x2)DYou cut my hairBm AYou left red ink everywhereEmDo my hands tell a story?AIs it boring?Outro:DWas I wishing on satellites?A DTell me how you've been doing that trickA DI'm just wishing the flame awayA DNow I'm wishing the flame awayNota Bene: On the D's in the outro, and throughout other points during the song, you can add embellishments to make it sounds a bit more tidy, but you don't have to. If you wanna give it a try, then whilst you're on the regular D Major shape, hit the fourth fret on the D string, then move it up to second, then open again. Large.
