Conor Oberst – Napalm Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Napalm

[Intro] : A

[Verse] : 
A
It's a quixotic quest on a hot summer's night
A
I got a fistful of fireworks
A
I'm gonna try and set things right
D
I lost my inhibitions
D                                  A
I think I may have lost my wallet too
E
In this dying land of plenty
E                                 A
There's a whole lot of nothing to do

[Verse] : 
A
Oh, I'm Billy Pilgrim you're a Dresden doll
A
They carpet bomb the city
A
Thank God they spared the mall
D
Let's hold a vigil
D                          A
For the kinda, sorta innocent
E
I guess I should defend your virtue
E                                    A
But the truth is I'm still on the fence

[Verse] : 
A             
And old Heinrich Himmler, he never broke the law
A
Well, technically speaking ask Sam Peckinpah
D
Sometimes you need a vigilante 
D                                 A
if you want to get a just thing done
E
And I don't want to kill nobody
E                                    A
whose only crime is worshiping the sun

[Chorus] : 
D                 A
Breakfast of napalm
D               F#m       E       D
Burn down the place where I belong
D                  A
Arch rivals make love
E
And they gotta keep it secret
E                            Dm     A 
They still do it with the lights on

[Verse] : 
A
And I got bad nostalgia for what came before
A
Sad reenactments of our civil war
D
My heartache is obsessive
D                               A
I just wish that I could let it go
E                         
But there's a mountain down in Georgia
E                               A
With a kickass laser light show

[Verse] : 
A
And I can always convince you, you're just like Patty Hearst
A
Or you're a sympathetic baby when I'm at my worst
D
I don't want to brainwash you
D                                       A
I just wish that you would change your tune
E
'Cause I've been gunning for redemption
E                                    A
And I think I'll hit the bullseye soon

[Chorus] : 
D                     A
Chartreuse and menthols
D              F#m      E         D
Burn down the town that we were from
D                 A
I lost my true love 
E
to a three-alarm fire
E                             Dm                      A
They tried to put out with a squirt gun  Odelay, homes 

[Solo] : A D A E A

[Verse] : 
A 
Sing little child like a Nightingale
A                                              D
Sing little child, send me anthrax through the mail
D                                              A
I wanna to know you, I wanna know if you are true
E
Because the closer I get to you 
E                                 A
is the further that I feel from you

[Chorus] : 
D                A
Breakfast of napalm
D              F#m       E       D
Burn down the place where we belong
D                 A
Arch rivals make love
E
And they gotta keep it secret
E
They gotta keep it secret
E
They gotta keep it secret
E                         Dm
They still do it with the lights on
