Artist : The Handsome Family
Song : King Of Dust

[Verse 1] :
    C                 F C     G                   C    C7
I dreamed that I was flying above the glittering world, 
       F              C               G          C
but I woke up in the bar ditch, car ready to explode
 F              C            F                C
Hanging upside down in the front seat of my truck
       F                C         G          C  C7
The scream of grinding metal, 40 cars piling up

[Chorus] :
 F                    C           E               Am  G
Nothing rusts in the desert. The air is full of ghosts
  F                      C         G                    C    C7
Cliffs painted with the old gods, rabbit brush full of bones
     F                 C         G                           Am G
Oh, Coronado, king of dust, the desert never cared what you saw 
           F    Fm        C
when you stared into the sun

[Interlude] : C

[Verse 2] :
C                         F  C     G                    C  C7
Ancient oceans have been lost   beneath this shifting clay 
          F             C             G                  C
where conquistadors in silver hunted Cibola across the plains,
           F             C             F                C
but there are no golden cities, only trailer parks and dust,
    F            C                  G             C  C7
and angels only fly here when you drive into the sun

[Chorus] :
 F                    C           E               Am  G
Nothing rusts in the desert. The air is full of ghosts
  F                      C         G                    C    C7
Cliffs painted with the old gods, rabbit brush full of bones
     F                 C         G                           Am G
Oh, Coronado, king of dust, the desert never cared what you saw 
           F    Fm        C
when you stared into the sun

[Outro] : C
