Bridge City Rose by Kyle Craft Guitar Chords

[Intro]
F Bb Dm Bb
F Bb Am Gm F

[Verse 1]
F Bb Dm Bb
You didn’t know, you couldn’t stand to watch it all slip through your hands
F Bb Am Gm F
The wayward angel, your promised land, they’ve burnt to the ground
F Bb Dm Bb
Stone-drunk on halloween, the shift is like some trick to me
F Bb Am Gm F
When a call comes from your balcony but no one’s around
Am Bb Am Bb F
So pick your fight, break down the door, endless nights waging war against yourself
Bb Am Gm F
on the bathroom floor, spilling it out.

[Interlude]
F Bb Dm Bb
F Bb Am Gm F

[Verse 2]
F Bb Dm
Now I’m on the bed, her hair’s undone, my face is wet,
Bb F Bb Am Gm F
Her face is worn from empty years and bitter scorn and a Victorian love.
F Bb Dm Bb
I don’t wanna cause you grief and I don’t wanna take the lead.
F Bb Bb Am Gm F
Hey little girl, all I wanna see is you getting off.
Am Bb Am Bb
Clenching thirst and heavy breath, naked as the night we met,
F Bb Bb Am Gm F F7
You left it up to me I guess but I’m slow on the draw.

[Chorus]
Bb F
So while the poor boys sit lonesome at the last call
Bb C
and the shy ones stare down at their toes,
F Bb F Bb
I’ll make way for that woman and the mean kingdom coming,
C Bb Dm Bb
I get tired walking these streets alone.
C Bb Dm Bb C Bb F
And I call her my Bridge City Rose, yeah, I’ll call her my Bridge City Rose.

[Interlude]
F Bb Dm Bb
F Bb Am Gm F

[Verse 3]
F Bb Dm Bb
The garden on her windowsill, her crystal moons and family stills,
F Bb F
Jawbone treasures, beatnik thrills and blood-red mulled wine.
F Bb Dm Bb
The sweetgum hanging overhead, with books I bought but never read.
F Bb Am Gm F
Can I lay low here, can I stop instead and stay for a while?
Am Bb Am Bb
‘Cause I cant remember the last time I wasn’t drawn in neon lights.
F Bb Bb Am Gm F F7
Say come drink up the water’s fine and the whiskey’s half off.

[Chorus]
Bb F
But before you find yourself torn between lovers
Bb C
or you’re stuck wearing yesterday’s clothes.
F Bb F Bb
Best make way for that lady and her sweet spirit breaking
C Bb Dm Bb
Fine glass against any old stone.
C Bb Dm Bb C Bb F
Yeah I called her my Bridge City Rose, yeah, I called her my Bridge City Rose.

[Outro]
