Brian Fallon – Etta James Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Brian Fallon
Song : Etta James

[Intro] : D Bm D G (x2)

[Verse 1] : 
         D                       Bm
Did you spend most of your life waitin'
      D                      G
On a fairytale read between pages?
         D                       Bm
Did you huddle up close to your boombox radio
    D               A       G
Is somebody waiting on the same song?
        Bm                    G
And we sold our souls on the fantasies
             D                           A
we found in records and black and white movies
       Bm                  G
And I used to beg June to burn me alive,
               D                   A
if that would get me anywhere but here

[Chorus] : 
          D               A
Now Etta James, hit that symphony
           Bm                            G
Cause she drips through my blood like a remedy
         D
And for most of my sad life
   A                        Bm   A   G
I figured I was gonna die alone
               D                    A
Cause I just burned in the curve of my scars
        Bm                        G
Twenty long years away from your heart
         D        A                     Bm   A   G
Til finally, finally, my love is in my arms
                  D    Bm   D   A   G
My love is in my arms

[Verse 2] : 
              D
And it was impossible
               Bm
to hold on to anything
       D                             G
In my chest was a lonesome, growing cyclone
        D                           Bm
I kept pictures tucked up into the rearview above
        D              A       G
to the sirens all lost in the ocean
            Bm                    G
And all we wanted was absolutely everything
      D                     A
Like foolish, hungry young lions
       Bm                        G
I was lost and alone, a million light years from home
        D                  A
It was nobody's fault but mine

[Chorus] : 
          D               A
Now Etta James, hit that symphony
           Bm                            G
Cause she drips through my blood like a remedy
         D
And for most of my sad life
   A                        Bm   A   G
I figured I was gonna die alone
               D                    A
Cause I just burned in the curve of my scars
        Bm                        G
Twenty long years away from your heart
         D        A                     Bm   A   G
But finally, finally, my love is in my arms

[Bridge] : 
                 Bm           G
And was there a hole in your life?
         D
Did you kill to keep warm but somehow
A
never quite satisfied?
        Bm                            G
Do you feel like it's always time to go?
          D
And it's always wrong, and it's always off,
          A
and it's hard to know, which heart to hold
           Bm          G
Now do you lie to someone,
            D             A
is someone else, on your mind?
        Bm         G       D           A
Do you lie to someone with me on your mind?

[Chorus] : 
          D               A
Now Etta James, hit that symphony
           Bm                            G
Cause she drips through my blood like a remedy
         D
And for most of my sad life
   A                        Bm   A   G
I figured I was gonna die alone
               D                    A
Cause I just burned in the curve of my scars
        Bm                        G
Twenty long years away from your heart
         D        A                     Bm   A   G
Til finally, finally, my love is in my arms
                  D
My love is in my arms

[Outro] : 
      D           A
Etta James, Etta James
      Bm                           G
Etta James, it's been a long time coming
      D           A
Etta James, Etta James
      Bm                           G
Etta James, it's been a long time coming
     D        A
(At last, at last)
      Bm                           G
Etta James, it's been a long time coming
     D        A
(At last, at last)
      Bm                           G
Etta James, it's been a long time coming
G
I could've said my love was coming 'long
