    D (4)                                                               A (4)

       Had a dream, you and me and the war at the end times

    D (4)                                                           A (4)

       And I believe California succumbed to the fault line. We heaved relief as scores of innocents died

     

    Chorus 1:

    G (2)                            D (2) 

        And the Andalusian tribe

    G (2)                                       D                                      

        setting the lay of Nebraska alight, until all that

            A                              G (2)

    remains is the arms of the angels

     

    D (4)                                                                 A (4)

        Hetty Green, queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab, you know what I mean

    D (4)                                                            A (4)

        On the road, it’s well advised to follow your own path, in the year of the chewable Ambien tab

     

    Chorus 2:

    G (2)                            D (2)

       And the Panamanian child

    G (2)                                             D

       stands at the Dowager Empress’s side, and all that

            A                              G (2)

    remains is the arms of the angels

    D                         A                              G (2)

       And all that remains is the arms of the angels

            D (2)       G (2)            D (2)       G (2)

    Ah-hooo, ah-hoooel, ah-hooo, ah-hooooel

     

    Bridge:

    Em (2)                             A (2)   Em (2)                                  A  

          You've receded in to loam,        and they’re picking at your bones

              G   D (4)               A (4)

    We'll call home, we'll come home

     

    D (4)                                                         A (4)

        Quiet now, will we gather to conjure the rain down?

    D (4)                                              A (4)

        Will we now build a civilization below ground? And I'll be crowned

    The community kicked it around

     

    Repeat Chorus 1

     

    D                        A                              G (2)

        ‘Til all that remains is the arms of the angels

            D (2)       G (2)            D (2)       G (2)

    Ah-hooo, ah-hoooel, ah-hooo, ah-hooooel

            D (2)       G (2)            D (2)       G (2)

    Ah-hooo, ah-hoooel, ah-hooo, ah-hooooel
