Royal Quiet Deluxe chords – Bonnie Prince Billy

 "Royal Quiet Deluxe"
tuning: DGCFAd


 F 
I-64 goes from 
 Bb 
some place bad to some place
 F 
better
 F 
better 'cause it's far, far 
 Bb 
away from where i 
 F 
met her
 Bb 
and because it's 
 F 
unknown


 F 
life is worth nothing
 Bb 
all my love is in a hole
 F 
and is dead
 F 
there is no heaven for 
 Bb 
love
 F 
it simply dies


 Bb 
the hills of west virginia offer
 F 
respite for my eyes
 Bb 
but like utah and all things lovely
 F 
the loveliness is lies


 F 
we learn that she who screams the loudest
 Bb 
makes he who fears most 
 F 
run
 F 
and who is ruled by fear
 Bb 
is oft ignored by 
 F 
fun

 C 
still there is a 
 Bb 
way to 
 Dm 
be
 G 
if we die many times
 A 
then let death come to me

 D 
this is the last song of its kind
 A 
now you can be
 G 
now you can be

 D 
all that all your weakest love can find
 A 
ain't it the best
 G 
ain't it the best
 D

VERSE I  
--------------------------
         Em7            
Well we all have a face
         Am Em7 
That we hide away forever
        Am C 
And we take them out and show ourselves
      D                 B7#5(#9)
When everyone has gone
          Em7  
Some are satin some are steel
          Am Em7 
Some are silk and some are leather
             Am7 D 
They're the faces of the stranger

Well, we all fall in love

But we disregard the danger
           Am7 C 
Though we share so many secrets
           D                  B7#5(#9)
There are some we never tell
          Em7 
Why were you so surprised
          Am Em7 
That you never saw the stranger
         Am7 D 
Did you ever let your lover see

The stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again

Everyone goes south

Every now and then, oo  hoo
 Gmaj7 Gm (maj7)           D/F# 
You've done it, why can't someone else?
 D7/C Bm 
You should know by now
 Bb +                    A6   B7#9 
You've been there yourself

VERSE III
--------------------------
        Em7  
Once I used to believe
        Am Em7 
I was  such a great romancer
        Am C 
Then I came home to a woman
        D                   B7#5(#9)
That I could not recognize
        Em7 
When I pressed her for a reason
       Am Em7 
She refused to even answer
        Am7 D 
It was then I felt the stranger
         Bm7             ||  Em7  |  C9  |  Em7  |  C9  ||
Kick me right between the eyes

Billy died of a broken heart

Couldn't bear to be apart
 F G C 
from the one he loved too much



When I break out of this iron cast

I'll lay all of my ghosts in the past

Friends that I thought I knew

Where were you when I needed you

And lovers that had torn me apart



It seems the more I chase the further you run

Faster than a bullet from a gun

That shot me through this heart of stone

Now all that's left is skin and bones

I tell you this is the end for me

Billy died of a broken heart

Couldn't bear to be apart

from the one he loved too much


Billy died of a broken heart

Couldn't bear to be apart

from the one he loved too much

Closer Tonight chords – Billy Currington

 
This sounded pretty close to me.  Its off his new CD.  I haven't put up a tab in awhile 
so I thought I'd put one up I didn't see on here.
Standard Tuning - No capo needed.  Its an easy song and pretty smooth to play.  good acoustic.



Artist: Billy Currington
Song Title:  Closer Tonight
Intro:     A E D    twice


  D E 
I don't know what you're doin', but baby I just had to find out
 D E 
Maybe it's too soon to call you, but it's too late now
           D 
I've been thinkin' about the way you move

And the way you look when I look at you
      E 
And I just can't wait, tomorrow's too late

Chorus:

 A E D 
Baby just come over, we should be a little closer tonight
   A E D 
Let's drink a little something and do a lot of nothin' all night
   A E D 
We can take it slow or we can go wherever you're feelin' like
 A E D 
It really doesn't matter as long as we get closer tonight

 D E 
You can be here in a song, I'll meet you at the end of the street
    D E 
All we gotta lose is a lonely city night and some sleep
        D 
And if you gotta go, I'll walk you home

Or if you don't wanna wake up alone
 E 
Come on, come on, don't wait too long

Chorus:

 A E D 
Baby just come over, we should be a little closer tonight
 A E D 
Let's drink a little something and do a lot of nothin' all night
 A E D 
We can take it slow or we can go wherever you're feelin' like
 A E D 
It really doesn't matter as long as we get closer tonight

               F#m E D  quick
Closer tonight
                              F#m E D  quick
Don't think about it too much
                      F#m E D  quick
Just get in the car
 A 
You're too far away
 E D 
If you're anywhere but in my arms, uh, huh


Chorus again

 A E D 
Baby just come over, we should be a little closer tonight

 A E D 
Let's drink a little something and do a lot of nothin' all night

 A E D 
We can take it slow or we can go wherever you're feelin' like

 A E D 
It really doesn't matter as long as we get closer tonight
 A E D 
Closer tonight, oh, ohh
 A E D 
Closer tonight, oh, ohh

Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key chords – Billy Bragg And Wilco V4

 (Lyrics by Woody Guthrie)

 B E 
I lived in a place called Okfuskee
 E B 
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
 B E 
I said, little girl, it's plain to see,
 E B 
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
 F# G#m 
Ain’t nobody that can sing like me

She said it's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes, my luttle girly, that might be
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

 E B 
Way over yonder in the minor key
 F# G#m7 
Way over yonder in the minor key
 F# G#m 
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek
To see the frog eat the goggle eye bee
To hear that west wind whistle to the east
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

Oh my little girly will you let me see
Way over yonder where the wind blows free
Nobody can see in our holler tree
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me

(Chorus)

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
And laid it on the she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me

Now I have walked a long long ways
And I still look back to my tanglewood days
I've led lots of girls since then to stray
Saying, ain't nobody that can sing like me.


(Chorus)

Notes:
Not say that these are the exact chord forms from the record, but using a half barre is
easier to play, and kinda replicates the higher pitched mandolin sound. Not using a capo
lets you slide down to the 2nd fret for the F#. Playing the full barre chords on the F# 
and G#m, seems to fit with the song, which has a lower feel in this section. At least to
me. The other thing I like to do is use the half barre at the 4th fret (G#m7) as a 
transition between the B and E chords, 1 strum on the 4th fret barre, then fret the next chord.

Electricity chords – Billy Elliot

 Hi this is basically a less accurate and easier version! KC x

3rd Cappo

 A A/G
I can't really explain it, I haven't got the words
          C EM
It's a feeling that you can't control
    AM F
I suppose it's like forgetting, losing who you are
            F E
And at the same time something makes you whole

        Am G F C
It's like that there's a music, playing in your ear
              Am G F EM
And I'm listening, and I'm listening, and then I disappear

           C Am
And then I feel a change, like a fire deep inside
 Dm7 C G
Something bursting me wide open, impossible to hide
        C
And suddenly I'm flying, flying like a bird
           F Em
Like Electricity, electricity
          C G C
Sparks inside of me, and I'm free, I'm free

 (Repeat above for following lyrics)

It's a bit like being angry; it's a bit like being scared
Confused and all mixed up and mad as hell
It's like when you've been crying
And you're empty and you're full
I don't know what it is, it's hard to tell
It's like that there's some music, playing in your ear
But the music is impossible, impossible to hear
But then I feel it move me
Like a burning deep inside
Something bursting me wide open
Impossible to hide
And suddenly I'm flying
Flying like a bird
Like Electricity, electricity
Sparks inside of me

         G Am
And I'm free, I'm free

  F C
Electricity sparks inside of me
         G E C
And I'm free,  I'm free
 F E A
Oh, I'm free

Christmas Eve Can Kill You chords – Bonnie Prince Billy

 Song:       Christmas Eve Can Kill You
Artist:     Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Written By: Dennis Linde

Also performed by The Everly Brothers!



Intro:
 C F G C F C G 


Verse 1:
 C F G C    
The winter's flaking snow is brushin' through the wiry trees
   F C G 
I stuff my hands down deep inside my coat
   F G C F 
I think of years ago and half remembered Christmas trees
     C F G 
And faces that still warm me with their glow
     C F G C 
The cold and empty evening hangs around me like a ghost
   F C G 
I listen to my footsteps in the snow
     F G C F 
The sound of one man walking through the snow can break your heart
     C F G 
And stopping doesn't help, so on I'll go


Refrain:
     F Em 
And Christmas Eve can kill you
             F G C 
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere


Verse 2:
 C F G C   
The icy air I'm breathin's all that keeps me on my feet
   F C G 
I feel like I've been walking all my life
   F G C F 
A car goes runnin' by; the man don't even turn his head
            C F G 
Guess he's busy bein' Santa Claus tonight
     C F G C  
The saddest part of all is knowin' if I switched with him
     F C G 
I'd leave him stumbling ragged by the road
     F G C F 
I'd ride that highway to the arms of my sweet family
         C F G 
And forget about the stranger in the cold


Refrain:
     F Em 
And Christmas Eve can kill you
             F G C 
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere


Verse 3:
     C F G C  
And as I walk I'm singing to myself, Oh Silent Night
 F C G 
Hopin' I can save those other souls
     F G C F 
Oh, God forgive the man that drives right by the other man
      C F G 
Take pity on the stranger in the cold


Refrain:
       F Em 
Cause Christmas Eve can kill you
             F G C 
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere

I sent you ( F )over with a couple of ( G )drinks and you never came ( C ) back

(Chorus)
You were supposed to be my ( F )wingman, wasn't that your game plan
You take the ( C )grenade, and I'll take the fox
Supposed to talk me ( F )up bro, no matter what so
Don't go ( G )tellin' me you must've forgot
You waltzed her off the ( F )dance floor, right out the back door
Leaving ( C )me to go it A-( Am )lone
You're supposed to be my ( Dm )wingman, but the only ( F )thing that it should've been 
( G )meThat's taking her ( C )home

( C ) Shortly after you left, I was cussing your ( D )name, hell I was
When her ( F )ugly girlfriend comes ( G )over starts working her ( C )game, mmm
And I ( C )couldn't scare her off, no matter what I'd ( D )said, nah, no
I's thinkin' ( F )I'm the one that should be ( G )kissing on that cutie in-( C )-stead

(Chorus)
You were supposed to be my ( F )wingman, wasn't that your game plan
You take the ( C )grenade, and I'll take the fox
Supposed to talk me ( F )up bro, no matter what so
Don't go ( G )tellin' me you must've forgot
You waltzed her off the ( F )dance floor, right out the back door
Leaving ( C )me to go it A-( Am )lone
You're supposed to be my ( Dm )wingman, but the only ( F )thing that it should've been ( G )me
That's taking her ( C )home, whoa

They say, ( E )all is fair in love and war, and ( Am )all in time I'm gonna settle that score
It ain't ( D ) win or lose, it's how you play the game, if I was ( G )in your shoes, I 
might've done it just the same

(Chorus)
You were supposed to be my ( F )wingman, wasn't that your game plan
You take the ( C )grenade, and I'll take the fox
Supposed to talk me ( F )up bro, no matter what so
Don't go ( G )tellin' me you must've forgot
You waltzed her off the ( F )dance floor, right out the back door
Leaving ( C )me to go it A-( Am )lone
You're supposed to be my ( Dm )wingman, but the only ( F )thing that it should've been ( G )me
That's taking her ( C )home

(Tag)
You waltzed her off the ( F )dance floor, right out the back door
Leaving ( C )me to go it A-( Am )lone
You're supposed to be my ( Dm )wingman, but the only ( F )thing that it should've been ( G )me
That's taking her ( C )home, is taking her home, ohh
You were supposed to be my wingman, mmm, mmm ----
