Elliott Smith - Kings Crossing Acoustic guitar chord

Elliott Smith

King's Crossing

Capo: 1st Fret

Intro:

Am F

C G Dm

Am F

The King's crossing was the main attraction

C G Dm

Dominoes falling in a chain reaction

Am F

The scraping subject ruled by fear told me

C G Dm

Whiskey works better than beer

Am F

The judge is on vinyl, decisions aren't final

C G Dm

And nobody gets a reprieve

Am F

And every wave is tidal

C G C

If you hang around you're going to get wet

Am F C G Dm

I can't prepare for death any more than I already have

Verse:

Am F

All you can do now is watch the shelves

C G C

The game looks easy, that's why it sells

Chorus:

C B/Am

Frustrated fireworks inside your head

Am F

Are going to stand and deliver dark instead

C B/Am

The method acting that pays my bills

Am F

Keeps the fat man feeding in Beverly Hills

C B/Am

I got a heavy metal mouth, it hurls obscenity

Am F

And I get my check from the trash treasury

C B/Am

Because I took my own insides out

Am F

It don't matter cause I have no sex life

C G Dm

And all I wanna do now is inject my ex-wife

Am

I've seen the movie

F C G Dm

And I know what happens

Am

It's Christmas time

F

And the needle's on the tree

C G Dm

A skinny Santa is bringing something to me

Am

His voice is overwhelming

F

But his speech is slurred

C G C

And I only understand every other word

C B/Am

Open your parachute and grab your gun

Am F

Float down like an omen, a setting sun

C B/Am

Read the part and return at five

Am F

It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive

C

But I don't care if I fuck up

B/Am

I'm going on a date

Am

With a rich white lady

F

Ain't life great?

C B/Am

Gi'me one good reason not to do it

(Because I love you)

Am F

So do it.

C G Dm

Am F

C G Dm

Am F

This is the place where time reverses

C G Dm

And dead men talk to all the pretty nurses

Am F

Instruments shine on a silver tray

C G C

Don't let me get carried away

C G C

Don't let me get carried away

C G Dm

Don't let me be carried away
