The Handsome Family
Em Bm C Am Em

 Em Em/F# G
When you walked with me
                          C
away from the strip mall bar
 C/B        Am
across the highway
         D           G   D
to that little graveyard

        G
Where plastic flowers
                    C
bloomed in yellow grass
 C/B   Am           D
we sat on a broken bench
 C                     G  
listening to the cars pass

     G 
And right above your head
         C
in the branches of a tree
C/B          Am
there were white lights
          D             G    D
swaying slowly in the breeze

            Em
There were white lights, 
  Bm
white lights, 
  C
white lights 
  Am          Em  
swaying in a tree

Em/F#  G
   I know they were there
         C                       C/B
to stop kids kicking over graves
     Am             D
or spray-painting tree trunks
            C                    G  
with their favorite rock band's name

     G 
But sitting there with you
        C
almost touching your white hand
  C/B       Am
among the broken bottles
  D                G  D
crushed and faded cans

           Em
And those white lights, 
  Bm
white lights, 
  C
white lights 
  Am             Em  
swaying in the breeze
 
    Em/F#  G
There was mystery
                    C   C/B
singing from everything
      Am             D
the strip mall, the highway
     C                  G
the boarded-up skating rink

           G
They were calling our names
          C  
in the strip mall parking lot
  C/B       Am 
our sweet drunken friends
         D             G  D
finally noticing we'd gone

     G
But we just sat there
     C
not saying anything
  C/B   Am                  D
almost touching hands your hair 
       C                G   D
flying in the highway breeze

             Em
Like those white lights, 
  Bm
white lights, 
  C
white lights 
  Am          Em  Em/F# 
swaying in a tree

G C Am D G D G
