/ Em - - - / C - - - / Asus2 - - - / Asus2/C - - - /  x2


Em                 C       Asus2                 Asus2/C

     Darling remember          when you come to me

Em                  C      Asus2                               Asus2/C

     I'm the pretender,       and not what I'm supposed to be.

Am                             C             G       D

     But who could know if I'm a traitor

                       Am    C

Time's the revelator.


Em                        C   Asus2                      Asus2/C

  They caught the katy         and left me a mule to ride,

Em                   C   Asus2                       Asus2/C

     the fortune lady came along and she walked beside,

Am           C                     G          D

But ever word seemed to date her

                        Am   C

Time's the revelator

             C (hold)  D

The revelator


Instrumental over Intro Progression


Em                 C      Asus2          Asus2/C

    Up in the morning       up and on the ride

Em                 C         Asus2               Asus2/C

      Drive into corning      and all the spindles whine

Am                  C                    G          D

     and every day is getting straighter

                        Am   C

Time's the revelator

             C (hold)  D

The revelator


Instrumental over Intro Progression



Em                  C      Asus2                 Asus2/C

    Leaving the valley        and fucking out of sight

Em                        C   Asus2                          Asus2/C
      I’ll go back to Cali    where I can sleep out every night
Am                  C                             G      D

and watch the waves and move the fader.

                        Am   C

Time's the revelator

             C (hold)  D

The revelator

Am                C                 G       D

     Queen of fakes and Imitators

                       Am   C

Time's the revelator


Instrumental over Intro Progression x5




    Em                                   C
    Asus2/C                       Asus2/C
