Chords and lyrics for Landlocked Blues by Bright Eyes

 
If y
C 
ou walk away, I’ll walk  
G 
away
C 
 
First te
C 
ll me which road you  
G 
will 
 
take
C 
 
I do
Am 
n’t want to ris
G 
k our paths crossing s
C 
ome 
 
day
Am 
 
So yo
C 
u walk that way, I’ll walk thi
G 
 
way
C 
 
And the future
C 
hangs over our hea
G 
ds
C 
 
And it move
C 
s with each current event
G 
C 
 
Unti
Am 
l it falls all a
G 
round like a cold st
C 
eady 
 
rain
Am 
 
Just st
C 
ay in when it’s looking t
G 
his 
 
way
C 
 
And the moon’s  
C 
laying low in the sk
G 
y
C 
 
Forcing every
C 
thing metal to sh
G 
ine
C 
 
And the sidewa
Am 
lk holds diamonds li
G 
ke the jewelry store case
C 
Am 
 
They argue  
C 
walk this way, now walk this way
G 
C 
 
And Laura
C 
‘s asleep in my  
G 
bed
C 
 
As I’m leavin
C 
g she wakes up and s
G 
ays
C 
 
“I drea
Am 
med you were carried a
G 
way on the crest of a wave
C 
Am 
 
Baby don
C 
‘t go away, come here”
G 
C 
 
And there’s kids p
C 
laying guns in the st
G 
reet
C 
 
And ones pointi
C 
ng his tree branch  
G 
at 
 
me
C 
 
So I put  
Am 
my hands up I say
G 
“enough is en
C 
ough,
Am 
 
If yo
C 
u walk away, I’ll walk  
G 
away”
C 
 
Am 
I found a l
G 
iquid 
 
c
C 
ure
Am 
From my lan
G 
dlocked 
 
blues
C 
 
It’ll pa
F 
ss 
 
awa
G 
y like a slow par
C 
ade
Am 
 
It’s le
C 
aving but I don’
G 
t know how soon  
C 
 
And the world
C 
‘s got me dizzy a
G 
gain
C 
 
You think after 22 years I’d  
C 
be used to the spin
G 
C 
 
And it  
Am 
only feels worse
G 
when I stay in one  
C 
place
Am 
 
So I’m always pacing around
C 
or walking away
G 
C 
 
I keep drink
C 
ing the ink from  
G 
my 
 
pen
C 
 
And I’m balanci
C 
ng history boo
G 
ks up on my head
C 
 
But it all
Am 
boils 
 
do
G 
wn to one quotable p
C 
hrase
Am 
 
If you lov
C 
e something, give it aw
G 
ay
C 
 
A good woman
C 
will pick you apart
G 
C 
 
A box full  
C 
of suggestions  
G 
for your possible heart
C 
 
But you may b
Am 
 
offende
G 
d and you may be afr
C 
aid
Am 
 
But don
C 
‘t walk away, don’t walk  
G 
away
C 
 
We made love on  
C 
the living room f
G 
loor
C 
 
With the noise in  
C 
the background  
G 
of a televised war
C 
 
And in the deafening
Am 
pleasure
G 
I thought I heard someone say
C 
Am 
 
“If we
C 
walk away, they’ll wa
G 
lk 
 
away”
C 
 
But gree
C 
d is a bottom
G 
less 
 
pit
C 
 
And our freedo
C 
m’s a joke we’re j
G 
ust taking a piss
C 
 
And the whole
Am 
world must watch
G 
the sad comic display
C 
Am 
 
If you’r
C 
e still free star
G 
t running away
C 
 
I’ve grown tired o
C 
f holding thi
G 
 
post
C 
 
I feel mor
C 
e like a stranger  
G 
each time I come hom
C 
e
 
So I’m  
Am 
making 
 
a
G 
deal with the
C 
devils 
 
of
Am 
faith
 
Saying “
C 
let me walk away,
G 
please”
C 
 
You’ll be free ch
C 
ild once you  
G 
have 
 
died
C 
 
From the shackle
C 
s of language and
G 
immeasurable 
 
time
C 
 
And then we c
Am 
an trade  
G 
places, play musical grace
C 
Am 
 
Till the
C 
n walk away, walk away
G 
C 
 
Am 
So I’m up a
G 
 
dawn
C 
Am 
Putting on  
G 
my 
 
shoe
C 
s
 
I just w
F 
ant to make  
G 
a clean esc
C 
ape
Am 
Am 
I’m 
 
leaving
G 
but I  
C 
don’t know where to
