Lay Of The Last Survivor Guitar Chords Okkervil River

 

[Verse 1]
C
She went out and found
G F
Her father face down on the ground
G
Out in the cold

[Verse 2]
C
She walked her way around
G F
A hill with the sun sinking down
G
Into the snow

[Verse 3]
Dm F C G
All the whitecaps of the waves slap
Dm F
Like last hand claps
G Dm
And the dark water dies in a crash
C
Is sucked back with a moan
G
And the smoke on the coast

[Verse 4]
Dm
Oh, piled fathers
F G
Soft, sighing daughters
Dm F G
Where does it go?

[Instrumental]
C

[Verse 5]
C
It’s a dream, now
G
I’ll describe
F G
Let your mind drift on down, like so

[Verse 6]
C
To when the world was young
G F
A big sky, blue of a dead bachelor’s tongue
G
A new bloom on the rose

[Interlude]
Dm F
So some line someone told says
C G
Even light can get old

[Verse 7]
Dm
Oh, slobbering lovers
F
Drink-clinking brothers
G Dm F G x3
They don’t have to tell us, ’cause we know

[Instrumental]
C

[Verse 8]
C
What a way down
G F
What a ride, what a slide spin-around
G
What a life to have known

[Verse 9]
C
What a time
G F
And how I was singing out in a crowd
G
Of the thousand most frightening faces I’ve known

[Verse 10]
Dm F
And when the lighthouse
C G
Lending us sight finally went out
Dm F
What a fright we felt
G
In that night

[Verse 11]
Dm
Friends just shout it out
C
All the whys and don’t knows
G
All the cries in our throats
Dm F
And how right we felt

[Verse 12]
C
With our eyes tightly closed
G
Holding something we broke
Dm
And then whimpering sisters
F
Sobbing well-wishers
G
It’s over

[Outro]
C
Just let my hand go
