D E G1 D 

D E G1 D (pulloff)
Window facing an ill-kept front yard
D E G1 D (pulloff)
Plums on the tree heavy with nectar
D E G1 D (pulloff)
Prayers to summon the destroying angel
D E G1 D
Moon stuttering in the sky like film stuck in a projector
G2
And you
D
You
J-K-D

D E G1 D (pulloff)
Twin prop airplanes passing loudly overhead
D E G1 D (pulloff)
Road to the airport two lanes clear
D E G1 D (pulloff)
Half the whole town gone for the summer
D E G1 D
Terrible silence coming down here
G2
And you
D
You
J-K-D

D E G1 D (pulloff)
There is no deadline
D E G1 D (pulloff)
There is no schedule
D E G1 D (pulloff)
There is no plan we can fall back on
D E G1 D (pulloff)
The road this far can't be retraced
D E G1 D (pulloff)
There is no punch line anybody can tack on
D E G1 D
There are loose ends by the score
D E G1 A
What did I come down here for?
G1 
You 
D 
You
