[Verse 1]
Am /b C /e G Gsus4/D G Gsus4/D That winter we were dealing with unrest in the interior
C Bm Am /b C /e Careful when they mention local legends
G Gsus4/D G Gsus4/DHe was down there in the trenches, she was holding down home office
C Bm Am Still in constant correspondence
Bm C Bm Em Blackout Sam has got credentials
C DHe keeps flashing them his laminate
C/E D/F#He keeps scratching at his neck
[Verse 2]
G Gsus4/DThe general made a gesture of contrition
C Bm Am Bm Law of averages says something's gotta give
G Gsus4/DWe were stuck up in survival mode, you were twisting on the telephone
C Bm AmGiving blanket denials to that one persistent kid
Bm C Bm Em Blackout Sam don't have the answer
Am BmHe keeps waking up in parking ramps
C DHe can never find his keys
[Break] G Cmaj7 G Cmaj7 G Cmaj7 [Chorus 1]
Am BmNow promise me you won't forget
C D GThe nights that haven't happened yet
Cmaj7 GSeparate the smoke from all the cinders
Cmaj7 G Put another sticker on the van
Cmaj7Carpet at the party house
Am BmTear it up and take it out
C D N.C.Somebody should check on Blackout Sam
[Verse 3]
G Gsus4/DWhile we stood there at the service with her hand up on my shoulder
C Bm Am Bm We could feel like every single thing
G Gsus4/DPush the pill right through the foil, check the engine, change the oil
C Bm AmSpent the summer wishing it was spring
Bm C Bm Em They sent another man to sing the anthem
Am BmBut the monitor malfunctioned
C DAnd he couldn't find the key
[Chorus 2]
G Cmaj7 G I always try to take it so much further
Cmaj7 G Spinning like a sparrow through the spire
Cmaj7Ingesting every offering
Am BmTry to make it interesting
C D GCut up and consumed what we desired
Cmaj7 G Take a little comfort, it's just thunder
Cmaj7 G Put another sticker on the van
Cmaj7 Now that it's a haunted house
Am BmBreak the lease and empty out
C D Am BmSomebody should check on Blackout Sam
C D Em D/F# G AmSomebody should check on Blackout Sam
[Solo] G Em D G G Em D G [Coda]
G EmDropped out of school but he still went to church
D G He was a friend of mine and I hope it didn't hurt
G EmCried when he died but tonight it felt worse
D GSnuff out your smoke and pour your drink in the dirt
G EmLocal legends with the faraway eyes
D GI wanna make you feel protected and high
G EmIf you're in the city while you're still alive
D GI wanna make you feel protected and high
N.C.Local legends with the faraway eyes
N.C.I wanna make you feel protected and high
