Black Chords

Collaboration between Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi


The album cut of this song is sharp, about A=450, while the
single version is flat, about A=436.  So, no matter which version
you're listening to, it will sound slightly out of tune if you're
at A=440 (but the album will sound much more out of tune).
If you're like me, and don't realize there are two slightly 
different tunings because you're streaming the song from a website,
this will drive you insane.

Gm D7 F C
Gm D7 F C

   We touched the walls of the city streets and
F                                       C
   Dead ends plain, sadly showed us our ways
Of never asking why

   Cast down it was heaven sent and 
Bb                                          Dm
   To the church, no intent to repent on my knees
Just to cry

Gm           D7             F                    C 
   Until you travel to that place you can't come back
Gm                D7                F                  C
   Where the last paint is gone and all that's left is black

   Grey nights he's coming to me and
F                                               C
   Some day they'll punish my deeds and they'll find 
All the crimes

   But then they ask when they gonna see them
Bb                                 Dm
   Then they gonna ask to feel the ghosts, the walls, the dreams
And I've got mine

Gm               D7              F                 C
   At last those coming came and they never looked back
Gm               D7                      F                C
   With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black

   Fooled them hoping to seem 
Like a slave of evil but the product of greed 
And it's not a mass so be honest with me
We can't afford to ignore that I'm the disease

   Practical since we had to be and
Bb                                                  Dm
   When they were old they came back to me and they tried
Oh they tried

Gm              D7                 F               C
   And when you follow through and wind up on your back
Gm                     D7                           F                 
   Looking up at those stars in the sky those white clouds have turned 
to black
