VERSE 1:
    D                                       G
A smashed windshield, the dust on a pickup truck
  A                              G            D
Shine with silver secrets in the Albuquerque sun
     D                                               G
The light makes jewels of pawn shops and drive-thru banks
  A                             G              D
Wrinkled faces staring out the windows of the laundromat

CHORUS:
    Bm                     F#m
And even the broken glass scattered in the street
  A                             E
Shines like a thousand diamond rings

INTERLUDE:
         Bm                A             Em                     G     A         D

VERSE 2:
 D                           G
Neon signs above the old mo-tels, 
 A                                          G                 D
warehouse stores and strip malls, houses sprawled across the hills
     D                                      G
The sunset's a bird with wings made out of fire
 A                                G                D
Parking lots turn to gold as it glides across the sky
     D                          G
And every night from 6:00 to 6:05
     A                           G           D
The desert dirt shimmers like a sea of watermelon light

CHORUS:
Bm                     F#m
Even the broken glass shattered in the street
A                               E
Shines like a thousand diamond rings
