The Dear Hunter – The Revival Chords

No Capo
G
It took a little longer than we hoped,
D
But it was worth it.
Em
You know, it takes a village to raise a scheme;
C
To patch the holes of a mausoleum.

G
Well, we?re packing in the patronage
D
Like it's a lotto, and everybody wins.
Em
Now take a seat so the show can start,
C
And will you welcome these works of art?

G
Isn?t she beautiful? No?
D
Maybe another one here could entertain? Yes?
Em                                     C
We swear that every minute's worth the wait.

G
Hey! It's a cry you can?t contain;
D
A release you couldn?t estimate,
Em                                   C
And the secret's safe as long as you pay.

G
It's so good to be so bad.
D
You can leave it when you walk away,
Em                 C
And pretend you?ve washed your hands of it.
G Last call for the Sunday squaws, D And there's no room left for the hem and haw. Em We?ll give a gift long overdue C And make a sultan out of you. G That?s right; any troglodyte D Can have a life in the party as a socialite, Em Or if you?re looking to efface, C You can retire without a trace? G Don?t you bother with doubt. D Hey! It's a cry you can?t contain; Em A release you couldn?t estimate, C But the secret's safe as long as you pay.
G It's so good to be so bad! D You can leave it when you walk away, Em C And pretend you?ve washed your hands of it. G Another candidate for giving her bruises. D Another night that she?ll dissociate. Em C Another man who thinks the rules don?t apply to him. G Long was this road I?ve wandered, D But short did my temperance live. Em Here I?ve helped him build a temple C To deify this czar of sin. G Now who to blame, but I for tying D These knots so well at my wrists. Em The noose would surely find me C If I?m too wily? but what of the life I?d live? G The sale of a soul that falls D As foolish as young Esau... Em C It's better if I withdraw. G Hey! It's a cry you can?t contain; D A release you couldn?t estimate, Em C But the secret's safe as long as you pay. G It's so good to be so bad! D You can leave it when you walk away, Em C And pretend you?ve washed your hands of it.
