Chords with lyrics

Difficulty: Novice

Night Light, by The Mountain Goats, from the album Transcendental Youth.
Not too sure about the A chord diagramA/BA/B chords in the instrumental parts, but it's the best I can get
from the key (Dmaj/Bmin) and the one live video of John Darnielle performing this that
I found.

-------------------

Standard tuning, no capo.

A chord diagramB minorBm  -  x24432
A chord diagramE minorEm  -  022000
A chord diagramA augmentedA   -  x02220
A chord diagramG+G   -  320033
A chord diagramD MajorD   -  x00232
A chord diagramA/BA/B -  x2222x (can be played as an A chord diagramA augmentedA because it's easier, but I think A chord diagramA/BA/B is technically correct).
A chord diagramB minorBm
Pull my mask so tight
A chord diagramE minorEm
  Till it pinches my skin.
A chord diagramG+G                  A chord diagramB minorBm
  Nerves strung so high:
A chord diagramG+G                 A chord diagramA augmentedA
  I A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramA augmentedA mandolin.


A chord diagramB minorBm
 Jenny calls from Montana,
A chord diagramG+G
 She's only passing through.
A chord diagramD MajorD
 Probably never see her again, in this life, I guess,
A chord diagramA augmentedA
 Not sure what I'm gonna do.
       A chord diagramG+G
Plug a night light in;
          A chord diagramB minorBm
Leave the porch light on.
            A chord diagramG+G
Because the small dark corners
        A chord diagramB minorBm
Have designs on me.
              A chord diagramA augmentedA
Live like an outlaw,
               A chord diagramG+G
Clutching gold coins in his claw.


A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramA/BA/B A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramB minorBm


A chord diagramB minorBm
Room full of ambitious young policemen,
A chord diagramE minorEm
Everybody trying to make his mark.
        A chord diagramG+G                       A chord diagramD MajorD
I was a red dot blinking on the screen up overhead;
A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramA augmentedA
   And then the room went dark.


A chord diagramB minorBm
Dream of maybe waking up someday
    A chord diagramG+G
And wanting you less than I do.
A chord diagramD MajorD
    This is a dream, though:
A chord diagramA augmentedA
    It's never gonna come true.


       A chord diagramG+G
Plug a night light in;
          A chord diagramB minorBm
Leave the porch light on.
            A chord diagramG+G
Because the small dark corners
                   A chord diagramB minorBm
Are establishing a colony.
             A chord diagramA augmentedA
Live like an outlaw,
               A chord diagramG+G
Clutching gold coins in his claw.


A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramA/BA/B A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramA/BA/B A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramG+G


A chord diagramB minorBm
  Can't ever set aside the sweetness
       A chord diagramE minorEm
Of the days before the crews put up the border.
A chord diagramG+G                 A chord diagramB minorBm
   Fields full of wet rain
A chord diagramG+G                                    A chord diagramA augmentedA
  Cling tight to their memory forever.


A chord diagramB minorBm
Think about Montana when I close my eyes;
A chord diagramG+G
  Possibly Jenny's headed east.
A chord diagramD MajorD
  Count a couple of stray hopes out loud;
A chord diagramA augmentedA
  May their numbers one day be increased.


       A chord diagramG+G
Plug a night light in;
          A chord diagramB minorBm
Leave the porch light on.
            A chord diagramG+G
Because the small dark corners
                   A chord diagramB minorBm
Breathe like heavy animals.
              A chord diagramA augmentedA
Live like an outlaw,
               A chord diagramG+G
Clutching gold coins in his claw.
