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

Conor Oberst – Afterthought Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Afterthought

[Verse] : 
C                              F           C
I woke up this mornin' still wearin' that tie
C                            G         C
The one with the hammer and sickle design
C                           F           C
Threw up all the pills my doctor prescribed
C                  G           C   C Fmaj7 C
And went out to fetch me some air

C                                    F            C  
The streets were so crowded with billboards and signs
C                                    G        C
Food trucks double parked in their parallel lines
C                               F         C
I thought about breakfast but settled on wine
C                    G      F
Always choose hunger over despair
C                     G            C    C7  
And what's possible over what's there

[Chorus] : 
F                          C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F            C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

[Harmonica] : C F C G7

[Verse] : 
C                      F             C
I sat down today in a high barber's chair
C                            G           C
To hear the town gossip and clean up my hair
C                            F           C 
He said she was seen on the bus station stairs
C                     G            C   C Fmaj7 C
With her suitcase threatenin' to walk 

C                                 F          C
Not sure how true it was but I'll hazard a guess
C                                 G          C
It's probably not more and it's probably not less
C                                F        C
If that college kid bookie was accepting bets
C                   G          F
The brackets would mostly be chalk
C                     G              C     C7
Yeah it's safe to assume that she's lost

[Chorus] : 
F                          C
But it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F           C
Then she's gone and I've run out of time

[Harmonica] : C F C G7

[Verse] : 
C                               F            C
I can't be concerned with the state that I'm in
C                                  G        C
At the height of the scandal with vertigo spins
C                          F          C
Take every audition til I'm Errol Flynn
C                  G           C    C Fmaj7 C 
And bring it to life off the page

C                                F           C
And I'll get up tomorrow still wearin' that tie
C                               G            C 
The one with the skull and the crossbone designs
C                                F        C
If I'm asked if I miss her it's easy to lie
C                          G              F
In this world that's called more of the same
C                     G           C      C7
Yeah I wouldn't feel proud or ashamed

[Chorus] : 
  F                          C
'cause it isn't as though we get what we want
G7                      C
No matter how hard or long we have fought
        F             C
Oh my happiness is a mere afterthought
C                    G          F  
When I'm with her I keep it in mind
           Dm             F            C
Then she leaves and I've run out of time

[Outro/Harmonica] : C F C G7

Everything ends, everything has to

Gone with the wind, out into nothing

Little   drowned in a pool
Em                C
  got killed walking to school

Hope it was slow, hope it was painful
G                 F#m
Life is a gas, what can you do?
Em                C
Catheter piss, fed through a tube
D                     C                G
A cyst in the brain, blood on the bamboo
G                    F#m
Highway to hell's littered with signs
Em                           C
Everything last thing they advertise

I want to buy, I want to sell too

And anything's possible if you feel the same

[Verse] : 
G                F#m
Early to bed, early to rise
Em                 C
Acting my age, waiting to die
D                C            G
Insulin shots, alkaline produce
G                    F#m
Temperature's cool, blood pressure's fine
Em                       C
One twenty-one over seventy-five
D                    C                G
Scream if you want, no one can hear you

[Chorus] :

Conor Oberst – Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst 
Song : Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out

[Verse] : 
G
Rise and shine, get out of bed
Em
Get ready for the day
A
Get a coffee from the deli
D               D7
And walk the riverbank
G
Be careful with your headphones on
Em
When you cross the FDR
A
Don't want to be a casualty
D                        D7
Before you make it to the bar
G                               F
And hide your shakes and worried face
C
Just sit down in the back
A
Your friends got there ahead of you
D                   D7
And night is falling fast

[Chorus] : 
C                         D
Oh, you know you shouldn't say it
          Bm               Em
So you're thinking it out loud
C                    D         
Some things we lost are 
              Em     Em B Bm
never to be found
C                        D
But if you're gonna talk like that
    G                 Em
At least buy another round
                   A                 C             G
And we can keep drinking till St. Dymphna kicks us out

G F G F 

[Verse] : 
G
This world is made of blinking lights
Em
They're changing all the time
A
But depending who you're talking to
D                  D7
It's likely to be fine
G
I watched you go from bad to worse
Em
The blues is here to stay
A
Sometimes it's the simple things 
D                 D7
that make it all okay
G                             F
Oh, you don't have to lie, say you're alright
C
We're just happy that you're here
A
But if you yell and tell me to go to hell
D                           D7
Well at least you'd sound sincere

[Chorus] : 
C                          D
Oh, you know it's all a spectacle
Bm                    Em
When you go to take a bow
C                    D            Em   Em B Bm
You always did get nervous in a crowd
C                       D
But if you need some company
G                 Em
I'd gladly stick around
                    A                C              G
And we can keep drinking till St. Dymphna kicks us out

[Bridge] : 
Am           Bm
Let's get enabled
C                        D
Great minds, they think alike
Am              Bm
I never was a good judge of when
C              D    D7
to call it a night
Homepage
[Chorus] : C D Oh, you don't have to say it Bm Em So you're thinking it out loud C D Some things go south and they Em Em B Bm never turn around C D But if you want a confidant G Em I'd never let you down A C G Oh, we can keep drinking till St. Dymphna kicks us out A C G Yes, we can keep drinking till St. Dymphna kicks us out [Outro] : F G F G C C/B Am G F G F G

Conor Oberst – Tachycardia Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : Tachycardia

[Verse] :
C            Em
It's a mass grave
Dm                C
A dollar-fifty resting place
C            Em
On the north face
Dm                      G
there's a rope I've gotta climb
Am              Em
I'm a stone's throw 
F                 Em
from everyone I love and know
Am           Em      
But I can't show 
   F           G
up looking like I do

C          Em
In an old suit 
Dm                          C
my hair is slicked up back nice and smooth
C           Em
In a court room, 
Dm                     G
sweat rolling down my back
Am          Em
It's a bad dream
F                 Em
I have it seven times a week
Am           Em
No it was not me
F                    G      C
But I'm the one who has to die

[Instrumental] : C Em Dm C
                 C Em Dm G
                 Am G F G

[Verse] : 
C             Em
Needs a cold draw 
Dm                  C
to slow his tachycardia
C         Em
In a dark bar 
Dm                    G
the world just melts away
Am            Em
And he feels fine
F                     Em
If he can just lose track of time
Am           Em
It's a good sign 
F                  G
when he can't stay awake

C          Em
On a slow day 
Dm                     C
the rain against the windowpane 
C        Em 
of the cafe
Dm                       G
She spills the coffee grounds
Am              Em
And the same thought 
F                    Em
hits her like a cinder block
Am             Em
Life's an odd job 
F                      G           C
that she don't got the nerve to quit

[Instrumental] : C Em Dm C
                 C Em Dm G
                 Am G F G
Homepage
[Verse] : C Em Yeah it's just there Dm C At the bottom of those spiral stairs C Em It's the world's fair Dm G The future's on display Am Em In the still night F Em They turned on the electric lights Am Em And the crowd cried out F G C Everyone looked so amazed [Outro] : C F C G Am G F Em Dm C

Song : Next Of Kin

[Intro] : A C#m D E (x2)
 
[Verse] :
A                       C#m
I saw a crash on the interstate
D                              E
It left a feeling I could not shake
A                    C#m
Just a name in a database who
D            E
must be notified
D                         E
It's not a phone call I wanna make
C#m                    F#m
A stranger answers, I hesitate
C#m                     F#m
Got some bad news that couldn't wait
D                 E
Are you sitting down?

A                            C#m
Her bathrobe hangs on the bedroom door
D                          E
Though she's been dead for a year or more
A                     C#m
He buried her by the sycamore
D                      E
So that he could keep her close
D                         E
It broke his heart and it made him old
C#m                    F#m
Tries to rebuild but it just erodes
C#m                        F#m
Some people say that's the way it goes
D                      E
But he don't feel that way

A C#m D E (x2)

[Verse] :
A                       C#m
Get too drunk and you can't perform
D                         E
Something dies when a star is born
A                       C#m
I spread my anger like Agent Orange
D              E
I was indiscriminate
D                       E
Yeah, I met Lou Reed and Patty Smith
C#m                     F#m
It didn't make me feel different
C#m                     F#m
I guess I lost all my innocence
D             E
Way too long ago

A C#m D E (x2)

[Verse] :
A                         C#m
She called my bluff and she won the fight
D                         E
I ran outside in the hot twilight
A                        C#m
I had a lighter that didn't light
D                      E
Well I know I shouldn't smoke
D                       E
I was going, I was free to leave
C#m                     F#m
Walking fast down the Bowery
C#m                     F#m
Tears in my eyes so I couldn't see
D                      E
But I made my way back home

Conor Oberst – A Little Uncanny Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Conor Oberst
Song : A Little Uncanny

[Intro] : G C D G

[Verse] : 
G
You started drinking the Kool-Aid
C
We were taking the bait
D
We were talking big talk
G
Never playing it safe
G
Looking good as Jane Fonda
C
On a Vietnam tank
D
Can't get something for nothing
G
Have to energize your base

[Pre Chorus] : 
C
But she was young enough
C
She was blonde enough
C                        G
She was about a perfect ten
C
Had millions of admirers 
C                    D
but not a single friend

[Chorus] : 
G                                C
And it's a, it's a little uncanny what she managed to do
           D           C              G 
Become a symbol for a pain she never knew

G C D G

[Verse] : 
G
You know old Ronnie Reagan
C
He was a shoe salesman's son
D
He got himself in the movies
G
He impressed everyone
G
He thought trial by fire
C
Was America's fate
D
He made a joke of the poor people
G
And that made him a saint

[Pre Chorus] : 
C
But he was tan enough, he was rich enough
C                         G
He was handsome like John Wayne
C
And there was no one at the country club
                     D
Who didn't feel the same

[Chorus] : 
          G
But it's a, it's a little uncanny
C
What he managed to do
D                       C                           G
Got me to read those Russian authors through and through

G C D G

[Verse] : 
G
I miss Christopher Hitchens
C
I miss Oliver Sacks
D
I miss poor Robin Williams
G
I miss Sylvia Plath
G
Every morning's a desert
C
Every night is a flood
D
They say a party can kill you
         G
Well sometimes I wish it would

[Pre Chorus] : 
C
But I'll get strong enough, I'll be man enough
C                  G
To keep myself in check
C
'Cause all my friends that flew to town
C                      D
Said that's what they expect

[Chorus] : 
G
But it's a, it's a little uncanny
C
What they managed to do
D                      C                   G  
Made me admit to things I knew were never true

[Outro] : G C D G (x2)
