Myrna Loy Guitar Chords Josh Ritter

[Verse 1]
       F                                       A#/F
Let me stay with you a while and tell old, old stories
        F             C                 F   Fadd11
Of your oft' electric laughter and your charms
        F                                           A#/F
How you came out of Montana with a wolf pup at your heels
      F                 C               F   Fadd11
And a snow white rabbit huddled in your arms


[Chorus]
       A#/F
In the darkness
       F
In the darkness
       A#/F
In the darkness


[Verse 2]
   F                                                          A#/F
Remember, hey, those Gold Rush days, how the gold dust in the mud
      F               C               F
From Main St. leading all the way to Alder
     F                                              A#/F
With sunset turned the color of a lover's throat at blush
         F                     C               F   Fadd11
And with moonrise, blazed some new and silver river


[Chorus]
       A#/F
In the darkness
       F
In the darkness
       A#/F
In the darkness


[Verse 3]
     F                                                 A#/F
The minister was bloodless and the preachers were on fire
      F                 C              F
And Mahatmas sang their love songs in nasturtiums
       F                                               A#/F
But if he, or they, or any of their masters called my name
     F              C                 F
I was in your holy temple and never heard them


[Chorus]
       A#/F
In the darkness
       F
In the darkness
       A#/F
In the darkness

[Break]
F   A#/F

[Verse 4]
   F                                                          A#/F
Remember, hey, those Gold Rush days, some Last Chance Gulch saloon
 F               C              F
You, and I, and all the miners watching
    F                                             A#/F
As shadows danced across a screen as quiet as the moon
        F               C             F
Without sound, their fury signifying all things


[Verse 5]
    F                                                      A#/F
The whole town was alive that night as we floated down the street
      F                     C              F
Through fist fights, cowboy poets, parlor women
       F                                                    A#/F
And the light from the projector seemed to glow within your soul
        F             C                F
Like an opal throated songbird in its prism


[Chorus]
       A#/F
In the darkness
       F
In the darkness
       A#/F
In the darkness


[Verse 6]
       F                                                A#/F
They're tearing down the movies now, not a stone upon a stone
     F              C            F
All dust is dust no matter how celestial
    F                                           A#/F
But I, who tasted hornet juice and honey on the rose
     F               C              F
What use have I for all their cold memorials?


[Verse 7]
       F                                                     A#/F
Still every now and then sometimes when the night sky gets so bright
       F             C                    F
And no Bethlehem of stars could match its burning
   F                                                A#/F
I Go out into the fields until I can feel you by my side
        F          C                   F
And my memory is a book of gold thrown open


[Bridge]
               A#/F
How you rode a white horse
                 F
The queen of the harvest kissed your cheek
                  A#/F
The boys all took one look
                    F
And found that they could no longer speak


[Chorus]
       A#/F
In the darkness
       F
In the darkness
       A#/F
In the darkness
