Cigarettes & Saints

Capo on 3rd fret

        C                  Am 
Twice a week I pass by the church that held your funeral 
        G                   F                 C 
And the pastors words come pouring down like rain 
       C                            Am 
How he called you a sinner but said now you walk with Jesus 
       G                    F                 C 
So the drugs that took your life arent gonna cause you any pain 

G                F              C 
I dont think he even knew your name 
G            F              C       G            F 
I refused to kneel or pray. I wont remember you that way 
                C               G                F 
But I lit you a candle in every cathedral across Europe 
  G                    F               C 
I hope you know youre still my patron saint 

  C        Am                  G          F 
I tried to forgive but I cant forget the cigar in his fist 
  G                   F               C 
I know that they were heartsick but I need someone to blame 
                    G         F               C 
And I know how they blame me. I know what youd say 
      G              F                    C          G        F 
Youd tell me it was your fault. I should put all my arrows away 

                       C         G 
Im sure there aint a heaven 
                    Am              G           F 
But that dont mean I dont like to picture you there 
  G                  F              C 
I bet youre bumming cigarettes off saints 
                C              G 
Im sure youre still singing 
                         Am           G          F 
But Ill bet that youre still just a bit out of key 
          G                     F                 C 
With that crooked smile pushing words across your teeth 

         Am            G 
You were heat lightning 
           C          G            F 
You were a storm that never rolled in 
             Am                   G                C              F 
You were the northern lights in a southern town, a caustic fleeting thing 
               Am               G 
Ill bury your memories in the garden 
                C             G              F 
Ill watch them grow with the flowers in the spring 
Ill keep you with me 

( C  F  C  F ) 

These wolves in their suits and ties 
Saying (kid you can trust me.) 
Charming southern drawl, sunken eyes 
Buying good will in hotel lobbies 
C                                                 F 
They got fistfuls of pills to make sure you dont hurt no more 

You dont gotta feel anything 
Got their fangs in our veins 
Got their voice in our heads 
Got our arms in their grips 

No, we cant shake free 

C                                 F 
This god damn machine; hungry and heartless 
My whole generation got lost in the margin 
We put our faith in you. You turned a profit 
                                   C          F 
Now were drowning here under your waves 
                         C         F 
Drowning held under your waves 

Drowning here. Drowning here 

C                                            F 
You cant have my friends. You cant have my brothers 
You cant have my friends. You cant have my brothers 
You cant have my friends. You cant have my brothers 
You cant have me. No, you cant have me
