New Mexicos No Breeze Guitar Chords Iron & Wine

[Intro]
B7 F7 x2

[Verse 1]
B7 F7
God gave you red light on every green road sign when you left Santa Fe
B7 F7
We were two string beans and you were too nineteen to be blowin’ away

[Hook]
B7 F7
There were thieves in the square hidin’ hands and hidin’ prayers and all their mumblin’
B7 F7
Nothing left you alone tangled heels and tiny vireos singin’ something

[Verse 2]
B7 F7
Stuck with her pin curls your mama was scared of the world it was born with a bang
B7 F7
I was steppin’ on sea shells by the old Mission San Miguel when a bell tower rang

[Hook]
B7 F7
And the sky fell apart heard the rain, I heard your heart and what was spoken
B7 F7
‘Cause nothin’ bends for a name nothin’ wants to stay the same and nothin’s broken

[Bridge]
Emaj7 B7
When your friends and their friends
F7
Pass the pipe or tie the knot
Emaj7 B7
Honeymoon music played
C#7
In the drive-thru parking lot
Emaj7 B7
I woke up by your bed
F7
You were wanderin’ around the yard
Emaj7 B7
Window wide as a day
C#7 F#
But the sun just hit too hard

[Hook]
B7 F7
In a home void of doors mama’s house slowed a little more in the evenin’
B7 F7
Naked boys throwin’ stones beady eyes and desert bones they saw you leavin’

[Instrumental]
B7 F7 x2

[Verse 4]
B7 F7
God gave you bobwhites And the good kind of black night When you left Santa Fe
B7 F7
New Mexico’s no breeze and you were so nineteen you were blowin’ away
