	  		Rhythm is pretty much the same throughout the song 
 
D  G  D 
 
D            G  D      G  D 
Don't expect no favors 
D            G  D      G  D 
nothing in return 
D                   G    D        G  D 
Tell all your cross-eyed neighbors  
          D       G        D      G  D 
that it's none of their concern 
 
 
Open the shades Melinda 
let in the outside air 
I'm deep in doubt and I can't get out 
and it must be dark in there 
 
 
Chorus 1: 
        A         G          D 
I wanna walk with you in the morning mist 
         A         G       D 
Though I should be home by now 
          A       G        D 
And there must be some way outta this 
      A        G          D 
I was thinking you'd know how 
       A         G      D 
And my judgement may be shaky 
       A         G       D 
And my shoes are soaking through 
           A         G         D 
'Cause the weeds are wet and I haven't yet  
     A   G        D 
Made any sense of you 
 
 
All the midnight angels 
Fold their wings by dawn 
The same old wild-eyed strangers  
Sit and watch em till they're gone 
I let the night unravel 
Forget my vain pursuits 
'Cept to feel that gray rock gravel 
On your road beneath my boots 
 
 
Chorus 2: 
I wanna walk with you in the changing light 
When the shadows twist and play 
And the ghosts that kept me out all night 
We can chase em all away 
And the talk of those that wonder 
And the talk of those that curse  
Let em have their thrill, they'll need it 
We'll be no more for the worse 
 
 
Bridge: 
Bm                D 
Shine your eyes upon me 
Bm               G 
whisper long and low 
Bm             D  
Mindful of the longing  
        A    G        Bm 
that we ever more may know 
 
 
Up the ridge on past you 
Looking down below 
You can see the stacks of Danville  
Wwhen the clouds don't hang so low 
Should you take a mind to 
Won't you join me there 
Open the shades Melinda 
Let in the outside air
