VERSE 1
           D           D                     A                  G
A dustland fairytale beginning, just another white trash county kiss.
          D               Bm               D
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.
D                                                      A                     G
  He looked just like you'd want him to - some kind of slick chrome American prince.
  A             Bm         Bm          (A) G          G    (G/F#)
A blue jean serenade, Moon River, what you do to me.
    E                    E
But I don't believe you.
 
 
CHORUS 1
D/A                         Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown
A/C#                              D                   D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#          (Bm/Bb) Bm          A                 D
  I saw the minute that I turned away, I got my money on a palm tonight.
 
 
VERSE 2
    D                 D            A              G
The change came in disguise of revelation set his soul on fire.
    A*              Gmaj7/B   G         D
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        D                      D/C#    Bm                  Bm
And the decades disappear like sinking ships that we persevere.
    A        G                  Bm    G        D
God gives us hope, but we still fear, we don't know, the mind is poison.
Bm               Bm                G              G
  Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalised.
    E                      E
The drawbridge is closing.
 
 
CHORUS 2
D/A                         Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown
A/C#                              D/A                 D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#             Bm/Bb      Bm               A/C#             D
  I saw the ending when they turned the page, I threw my money and I ran away
                D/F#                  A
Straight to the valley of the great divide.
 
 
[Middle Eight]
A               A/E*       D                   A          G
  Out where the dreams all hide, out where the wind don't blow.
G              G/F#       Bm   Bm         A        D
  Out here the good girls die,   and the sky won't snow.
D              A        G     G                A           G
  Out here the bird don't sing,   out here the field don't grow.
G              A/C#       Bm   B/Eb                       E       E7
  Out here the bell don't ring,   out here the bell don't ring.
G     G                         D/A
        Out here the good girls die.
 
 
OUTRO CHORUS
          D/A                  Gmaj7/B            Gmaj7/B
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge.
A/C#                                    D/A        D/F#             G
  Oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege? And everybody needs you.
               D/F#         Bm/Bb    Bm              A/C#                    D
Is there still magic in the midnight sun? Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       D/F#                     G                     A           D
In the cadence of a young man's eyes,   and where the dreams roll high.
