This is from watching the Dig For Fire/Allison video.  I am not too sure
about the chords over "Allison" at the end, so feel free to change them
to something you think sounds better.  Also, these chords are for standard
tuning (EADGBe); from watching the video it looks like the guitars are tuned
down a half step.  Enjoy!  --Ryan       cygnusx1@prairienet.org

Words :

They're going higher
Wind is whistling on the barbs
Your head's a hammer

Hang Wire  x 3
(Meet you at the) Hang Wire

That man is a liar
The day is like a warm night
Salt rusts the cold line

Hang Wire  x 3
(Meet you at the) Hang Wire

Every morning and every day
I'll bossanova with ya

If there were a fire
Can we scratch beneath it

Hang Wire  x 3
(Meet you at the) Hang Wire
