Governers Ball by Conor Oberst

Chords with lyrics

Great track off of Conor's new solo album, Upside Down Mountain.
Standard tuning, no capo.
Chord diagramE MajorE
E
He came with his friends, in a caravan
  Chord diagramG#G#           Chord diagramA augmentedA
To witness the governor's ball
Chord diagramE MajorE
Sat by himself on a cool patch of grass
     Chord diagramA augmentedA              Chord diagramBB
While the rest stood like bricks in a wall
  Chord diagramC# minorC#m          Chord diagramA augmentedA
The stage it looked like a vending machine
  Chord diagramG#G#           Chord diagramC# minorC#m
The singer, a black barbie doll
      Chord diagramE MajorE          Chord diagramA augmentedA
But it was well light, and well managed
   Chord diagramE MajorE          Chord diagramA augmentedA
So no property, would be damaged
     Chord diagramE MajorE         Chord diagramBB  Chord diagramA augmentedA
Until his boredom, took full advantage
   Chord diagramE MajorE
Of it all
Chord diagramE MajorE
Talked to a girl, with klonopin eyes
  Chord diagramG#G#           Chord diagramA augmentedA
Who said she had jewelry to sell
Chord diagramE MajorE
First he said no thanks, then he realized
   Chord diagramA augmentedA           Chord diagramBB
That he wasn't feeling that well
    Chord diagramC# minorC#m              Chord diagramA augmentedA
And the turquoise she held looked like pieces of sky
   Chord diagramG#G#             Chord diagramC# minorC#m
And a garnet like teardrops from hell
  Chord diagramE MajorE       Chord diagramA augmentedA        Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramA augmentedA
She offered, him a necklace, and he wanted to accept it
       Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramBB  Chord diagramA augmentedA       Chord diagramE MajorE
But it would end up, too expensive, he could tell
       Chord diagramA augmentedA   Chord diagramE MajorE  Chord diagramA augmentedA       Chord diagramE MajorE    Chord diagramF# minorF#m   Chord diagramA augmentedA  Chord diagramBB
Then she said: "Why not? What have you got, to lose, to lose?"
Chord diagramE MajorE
    Chord diagramE MajorE
When he never came back, and the curfew had passed
  Chord diagramG#G#                  Chord diagramA augmentedA
His friends searched the fair grounds for clues
    Chord diagramE MajorE
But the security guard with the maniacal laugh
     Chord diagramA augmentedA           Chord diagramBB
Said its always the leader you lose
    Chord diagramC# minorC#m           Chord diagramA augmentedA
When he finally turned up in the broad light of day
    Chord diagramG#G#           Chord diagramC# minorC#m
With a black eye as big as the moon
     Chord diagramE MajorE          Chord diagramA augmentedA
They all asked him, what had happened
   Chord diagramE MajorE       Chord diagramA augmentedA
Was it real or, all imagined
    Chord diagramE MajorE       Chord diagramBB    Chord diagramA augmentedA    Chord diagramE MajorE
Why on earth had, he abandoned them so soon
And he said:
 Chord diagramA augmentedA  Chord diagramE MajorE  Chord diagramA augmentedA       Chord diagramE MajorE    Chord diagramF# minorF#m        Chord diagramA augmentedA  Chord diagramBB
"Why not? I do what I've got, to do, and so should you, you"
