Intro -x2-: Gm  D7  Eb  Bb

Gm
When I powder my nose
D7
He will powder his guns
Eb
And if I try to get close
Bb               Bb  
He is already gone
Gm
Don't know where he's going
D7
Don't know where he's been
Eb
He is restless at night
Bb                     Bb  
He has horrible dreams


Gm
So we lay in the dark
D7
'Cause we've got nothing to say
Eb
Just the beating of hearts like
Bb                     Bb  
two drums in the grey
Gm
Don't know what we're doing
D7
Don't know what we've done
Eb
But the fire is coming
Bb                           
So I think we should run
   Bb              Gm
I think we should run, run, run

Interlude: D7  Eb  Bb  Bb  

Gm
While I put on my shoes
D7
He will button his coat
Eb
And we will step outside
Bb                  Bb                
Checking out the coast is 
Gm
clear on both sides
D7
We don't want to be seen
Eb
No, this is suicide
Bb                   Bb  
You can't see the ropes
Gm
And I won't tell my mother
D7
It's better she don't know
Eb
And he won't tell his folks
Bb                         Bb  
'Cause they're already ghosts


Gm
So we'll just keep each other as 
D7
safe as we can
Eb
Until we reach the border
Bb                  Bb  
Until we make our plan
    Gm
To run, run, run

Interlude: D7  Eb  Bb  Bb

           Gm              D7
Will you stay with me, my love
           Eb          Bb
For another day?
                Gm         D7
'Cause I don't want to be alone
                  Eb        Bb
When I'm in this state
           Gm              D7
Will you stay with me, my love
                     Eb          Bb
'Till we're old and gray?
         Gm          D7
I don't want to be alone
                  Eb          Bb
When these bones decay


Gm, D7, Eb, Bb
Bb  
Run, run, run


Gm
When I powder my nose
D7
He will powder his gun
Eb
And if I try to get close
Bb                Bb  
He is already gone
Gm
Don't know what we're doing
D7
Don't know what we've done
Eb
But the fire is coming
Bb                       Bb    
So I think we should run

    Instead of playing C twice I play G the secondly time

  3. -1 is easier for lefties like me, who play backwards lol

  4. +2 is a ton easier :)
