The Handsome Family
D

D                    A
Out in the Red Rock Desert
                           D
Sitting on the roof of my car
                  A
Drinking cans of warm beer
                      D
Watching the sky get dark

 G                   D
Gail and I shot our empties
        A           D
with an old rusted rifle
     G                D
Her golden hair went flying
       Bm          F#
Like a wild brush fire
           G               A      D
When the mountains turned red at dusk

      D                     A
Time passed in the burning desert
                          D
and the tumbleweeds they tumbled
                    A
We lay in a golden fire
                           D
As the screaming buzzards circled

Bm                     F#
Far down the darkened valley
     G                  D
The city lights still twinkled
       Bm             F#
But my eyes saw only Gail
         G              D
And her hair of golden fire
           G               A      D
When the mountains turned red at dusk

         D                      A
But the fire it burned right through her
                      D
Gail followed unseen voices
                     A
They led her to the city
                      D
Deep in the darkened valley

         G                   D
I drove circles through the alleys
A                   D
Calling my burning lover
     G               D
But Gail ran deeper into the gloom
   A                 D
Screaming at the streetlights

       Bm               F#
And I lost her there forever
  G                   D
Deep in the valley's darkness
                         A
My Gail with the golden hair
      G               D
That burns bright as fire
           G               A      D
When the mountains turned red at dusk

    D      G    A      Bm
