Bright Eyes - Ladder Song, off of The People's Key

It's a great song on the piano, but goes well on an acoustic guitar

Make sure you play the G chord 
and the B - Bb/Bm transition as follows;

G:    320003

Bm:    x24432
Bb/Bm: x14432

Dmaj7: xx0222
D7:    xx0212

A/D:   x00323

Bm                     Bb/Bm
No one knows where the ladder goes
Bm                           Bb/Bm
You're going to lose what you love the most
Em                  G
You're not alone in anything
Em                   G
You're not unique in dying
Bm                     Bb/Bm
I feel estranged every now and then
Bm                 Bb/Bm
Fall asleep reading science fiction
Em                    G
I want to fly in your silver ship
Em                 G      A
Let Jesus hang and Buddha sit

It's on now
The days are long now
The ups and the sundowns
In a twisting mind
If I've got to go first
I'll do it on my terms
             G                        A
I'm tired of traitors always changing sides
          B       A  G
They were friends of mine

Bm                         Bb/Bm
Don't hang around once the promise breaks
Bm                       Bb/Bm
Or you'll be there when the next one's made
Em                 G
Kiss the feet of a charlatan
Em             G
Some imagined freedom
Bm              Bb/Bm
All the rest is predictable
Bm                     Bb/Bm
You can say you're the first to know
Em                 G
Bought a mantra to concentrate
Em           G       A
Car alarm or hissing snake

I know now
How it's going to turn now
You got to calm down
Or I'll lose my place
Got to get to the center
Got to get to the concert
Run off with a dancer
Going to celebrate

Em               A
We'll welcome to new age
D          G  G/F# Em
Covered in warrior paint
                A             D   Dmaj7  D7
Lights from the jungle to the sky
Em              A
I've seen how a star's born
D                 G    G/F# Em 
Looks just like a blood orange
              A                D
Don't it just make you want to cry
          B     A  G
Precious friend of mine?

Bm                     Bb/Bm
Will I know when it's finally done
Bm                     Bb/Bm
This whole life's a hallucination
Em                  G
You're not alone in anything
Em                  G
You're not alone in trying 
To be
