Intro: D  D  D  D

Verse:
           D           D        
a dustland fairytale beginning, 
             A                  G
just another white trash county kiss.
          D               D                D     D
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.
D                           D             
  He looked just like you'd want him to
             A                     G
some kind of slick chrome American prince.
  A             Bm         Bm              G          G
a blue jean serenade, Moon River, what you do to me.
    E                    E
But I don't believe you.

Chorus:
D           D               Gmaj7     
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but 
        Gmaj7  
she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D        
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, 
             D 
he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D                       Bm 
  I saw the minute that I turned away, 
         A                 D      D
I got my money on a palm tonight.

Verse:
    D                 D        
The change came in disguise of 
    A              G
revelation set his soul on fire.
    D               Gmaj7           D       D
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        D            D                 
And the decades disappear like sinking 
Bm                  Bm
ships that we persevere.
             G                  G     
God gives us hope, but we still fear, 
         D         D
we don't know, the mind is poison.
Bm               Bm                G           G
  Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalised.
    E                      E
The drawBridge is closing.

Chorus:
D           D               Gmaj7     
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but 
        Gmaj7  
she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D      
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, 
             D   
he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D                           Bm    
  I saw the ending when they turned the page, 
           A                 D
I threw my money and I ran away.
                D                      A
Straight to the valley of the great divide.

Bridge:
A                          D     
  Out where the dreams all hide, 
D                          G
  out where the wind don't blow.
G                         Bm   
  Out here the good girls die, 
Bm                  D
  and the sky won't snow.
D                         G     
  Out here the bird don't sing, 
G                          G
  out here the field don't grow.
G                         Bm    
  Out here the bell don't ring, 
B7                        E       E7
  out here the bell don't ring.
G     G                         D  
        Out here the good girls die.

Outro:
          D                    Gmaj7  
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, 
            Gmaj7  
it's such a bitter form of refuge.
A              A                        D      
  Oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege? 
    D   
And everybody needs you.
G                D                     Bm   
  Is there still magic in the midnight sun? 
           A                       D
Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       D                        G                  
In the cadence of a young man's eyes, 
G                           D  
  and where the dreams roll high.
