The 13th Floor Elevators

As heard from the 2005 CD Reissue of The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators 
 In those spots, approximations were put in their place.

F#m  B    repeat

F#m                        B
Thru the rhythm of darkened times
F#m                   B
Painted black by knowledge crimes
F#m                  B
And repetitions from this crime
F#m                                B
And steering valleys the sick define
F#m                                  B
That keeps the fabric that keeps you bind
F#m                                B
and ties your hands and cloaks your mind
F#m                         B
But on my stilts, I'm above the slime

F#m                                 B                                  
  F#m   B
Come on, well, if you can make the climb, but who am I?
        F#m  B       F#m
Who am I?    Who am I?

F#m                                     B
My stilts are sticks from the fields that rise
F#m                                                     B
F#m                        B
I felt the panic that bathed the skies
F#m                                B
And the forms of laws of every size
F#m                                                                     B
And you know the teachers whine and make me drop out like flies
F#m                                                                     B
But you know they teach you nonsense, but they can't blind your eyes
F#m                                         B
I feel the field is gold that torn off as the pride

F#m                                      B                             
         F#m  B
To the Everest standard that calms for pride, well where am I?
      F#m  B        F#m  B
Where am I?   Where am I?

Abm  C#

Abm                                                      C#
You gobbled all the blessings that they caused you to digest
Abm                                                                      C#
They may be hard to swallow, but they keep your tongue depressed
Abm                                C#
Your scattered wills were born to pressed
Abm                         C#
So when something slams your chest
Abm                                C#
You flutter about, you're sleek distressed
Abm                           C#
And when you stop to ease your breast
Abm                           C#
A scattered rim beast you're obsessed
       Abm                       C#                                  
    C#
Was fallin' thoughts of who's the best, but where are you?
                                   Abm    C#                   
    C#
OHHHHHHHHH Where are you?    HEY! Where are you?
