           D           D                     A                  G
A dustland fairytale beginning, just another white trash county kiss.
          D               D                D               D
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.

  He looked just like you'd want him to - some kind of slick chrome American prince.
  A             Bm         Bm              G          G
A blue jean serenade, Moon River, what you do to me.
    E                    E
But I don't believe you.

Chorus 1:
D           D               Gmaj7/B           Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D                   D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#          (D/Bb)    Bm          A                 D             D
  I saw the minute that I turned away, I got my money on a palm tonight.

Verse 2:
    D                 D            A              G
The change came in disguise of revelation set his soul on fire.
    D/A             Gmaj7/B         D             D
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        D            D                 Bm                  Bm
And the decades disappear like sinking ships that we persevere.
             G                  G/B            D         D
God gives us hope, but we still fear, we don't know, the mind is poison.
Bm               Bm                G              G
  Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalised.
    E                      E
The drawbridge is closing.

Chorus 2:
D/A         D/A             Gmaj7/B           Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D                   D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#             (D/Bb)     Bm               A                 D
  I saw the ending when they turned the page, I threw my money and I ran away.
                D/F#                   A
Straight to the valley of the great divide.

Middle Eight:
A                          D     D               (A)        G
  Out where the dreams all hide,   out where the wind don't blow.
G              (A)        Bm   Bm        (A)       D
  Out here the good girls die,   and the sky won't snow.
D              (A)        G     G              (A)         G
  Out here the bird don't sing,   out here the field don't grow.
G              (A)        Bm    B7                        E       E7
  Out here the bell don't ring,   out here the bell don't ring.
G     G                         D/A
        Out here the good girls die.

Outro:
          D/A                  Gmaj7/B            Gmaj7/B
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge.
A              A                        D          D/F#
  Oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege? And everybody needs you.
G                D/F#         (D/Bb)   Bm              A                       D
  Is there still magic in the midnight sun? Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       D/F#                     G     G               (A)         D               
In the cadence of a young man's eyes,   and where the dreams roll high.
