The Handsome Family
Capo 2nd Fret

          G         D          G
Come with me to the forgotten lake,
      C                      G                D
Where covered wagons and the wings of missing planes,
Am                            Em
Float between blind fish underneath the velvet waves.

               G    D               G
Strange lights fly across the rocky beach,
C                                G                 D
Girls in white nightgowns wander barefoot in their sleep,
        Am                       Em
And the vapors of dreams wind in circles 'round their feet.

C     G
Down, down, float them down,
Am             Em
Let the waters float them down,
   G               D           G
To where they'll remember everything.  

G, D, G, C, G, D, Am, Em,

       G            D              G
Golden flash at the corner of your eye,
      C                       G                 D
Those shadows that climb your darkened walls at night,
     Am              C              G       D, G
They open a door lit with forgotten light.

        G         D                G
In dark water the grey veil falls away,
      C                              G             D
We'll see with closed eyes and drift softly in the rain,
     Am                                Em
Like dragonflies in love, we'll dance across the silver waves.

C     G         
Down, down, float us down,
Am             Em
Let the waters float us down,
   G             D           G
To where we'll remember everything.
