How To Play

Capo: 1st fret

INTRO
Em Bm A D
 
 VERSE 1
Bm        D                A
 I put my life on hold and took you home
Bm               Em                 D
 Good sense shot down I placed you on a throne
Fm            Em                 D
 Where was the wheel that kept me on the road
     F             Em          D
 The force of nature preventing overload
    F        Em             D             Em D
 So don't you know I've been dressed to kill
 F             Em               D            Em D
 If you got the tools be careful what you build
 Fm              Em                D
 When the arrow's in the bull's-eye every time
     F            Em                A#
It's hard assuming that the archer's blind
 
 CHORUS
   Em
My quicksand
                           Bm
Let me introduce you to my final stand
          F#7
I went to Paris once
                  Bm
I thought I had a plan
                  Em
I woke up with an accent
                Bm
I wound up in quicksand
Bm Em Bm
My quicksand
 
 VERSE 2
 
Em Bm A D
Bm     D                             A
 I was full of foreign notions at the start
Bm                    D                A
 There was never once when I was off my guard
Fm      Em             D
 For any ghost of every poet in the ground
F               Em            A
 There's one like me to buy the guys a round
 
  CHORUS
   Em
My quicksand
                           Bm
Let me introduce you to my final stand
          F#7
I went to Paris once
                  Bm
I thought I had a plan
                  Em
I woke up with an accent
               Bm
I wound up in quicksand
Bm Em Bm
My quicksand
 
 BRIDGE
    Em    Bm
I'm going down
        Em   Bm     Em    Bm
You and me together going down
    Em         Bm      Em              D
It's not what I'd been told about this town
              C#7                     D#
That when you least expect if you can drown
   Em   Bm
In quicksand
Bm Em Bm
My quicksand
 
 SOLO
 
 CHORUS
   Em
My quicksand
                           Bm
Let me introduce you to my final stand
          F#7
I went to Paris once
                  Bm
I thought I had a plan
                  Em
I woke up with an accent
               Bm
I wound up in quicksand
Bm Em Bm
My quicksand
