Standard Bitter Love Song #8

Here's an easier-to-play version --Rosa

Capo on 2, downtune a little to play along with the recording. 
You can also just play this in A with barre chords to better approximate the sound on the record.

A                    G     E            A
I went down to Lloyd Center looking for you.
A                   C#m  D           A
but a mouth full of anger blocked my view.
A            E    A                    D
he took your hand there in the skating rink.
A        E        D        A
god will give him blood to drink.

saw the two of you leaving, I didn't want to follow behind.
but I could see the rest of your evening, burning in my mind.
the sky's black. the moon's pink.
god will give him blood to drink.

I looked over the railing. ice was white
on the northeast side where I saw you and your boyfriend, on a friday night.
I went mining for gold. I struck pure, fresh zinc.
god, god will give him blood to drink.

A G E A
hey, hey, hey.
