A Girl in Port
Okkervil River
The Stage Names (2007)

Capo 2nd Fret

Let fall your 
G                 D
soft and swaying skirt; let fall your 
A                     Em
shoes; let fall your shirt. I'm not the
G             D
lady-killing sort. Enough to 
A    G              D
hurt   a girl in port.

Marie's gone
G                   D
blonde, and lost a stone. She lay on her 
A                Em
lawn, spun and alone. And when the
G                D
morning sun, it rose upon 
A                    Em
Marie, and her lacy clothes. It lit her
G                    D 
up, and she walked around the winding
A                  Em
streets of Camden town. She don't know 
G                D
who she wants to be, but if I 
A     G            D
knew,   I’d tell Marie.


And Cindy tells me she's had fun,
Sitting back stage,someone's plus one.
Up in her room,the records spin
a needle in the grooves that she's worn thin.
Well, she lifts her sleeve and she sees a name.
And she's got a smile on her face
And she's got a story you can't see
Well, that's just between that name and Cindy.

Interlude: A Asus4 A     

And before Holly made her way
Over the sea and far away,
She's telling me inside her car
driving us back from the Crystal Corner bar.
I lost her there; I fell from hell
Cut some fresh pieces from myself
Then for a second something in me
Said leave today, it's time, Holly.


Oh, I'm a weak and lonely sort,
Though I'm not sailing just for sport.
I've come to feel out on the sea
These urgent lives press against me.
I'm just aghast; I'm not a part
My tender head with my easy heart.
These several years out on the sea
Made me empty, cold, and clear pour yourself into me.
