The Industry chords by Okkervil River Guitar Chords

[Intro]
A# Gm D# F

[Verse 1]
A# Dm Gm
I thought that it was us against the world
D#
But now it’s me against something so big and abstract
F
That I can’t tell what it is
A# Dm Gm
All while you’re out there, grinding on some poor girl
D# F
Who is backstage at the 6.8 rock fest
Dm Gm
I thought that you’d be on our side
Dm Cm F
I tuned it out when I heard you shit-talking our friends
Dm Gm
Well, our world’s in free fall and we’re terrified
D# F
And everyone’s just out to grab what they can get

[Verse 2]
A# Dm Gm
I thought I had a bunch of friends, I guess
D# F
I just had people pissed at me for shit
A# Dm Gm
And the cheaper that the music starts to get
D# F
It’s like they’re trying to make us cheep along with it

Dm Gm
I watched you turn into your very opposite
Dm Cm F
Into everything we were trying to reject
Dm Gm
And I figured you had had enough of it
D# F
Watching the whole world turn while all you earned was respect

[Verse 3]
A# Dm Gm
And look at us; just two dumb country hicks
D# F
as we’re trying to bum-rush that VIP
A# Dm Gm
Up there, out where the beautiful people live
D# F
But is that ever who we even wanted to be?

Dm Gm
Do you remember, baby, back in ’96?
Dm Cm F
When some record was enough to make you raise your fist?
Dm Gm
When some singer would make you sure that you exist?
D# F
Well, I never thought I’d feel like that again

A#
Just let go
Gm
I had to let it go
D#
I gotta gotta let it go
F
Gotta let it go

All right, man?

[Outro]
A# Gm D# F
