Little Bombs


From the album ”The Forgotten Arm” 2005


Intro: G  Bm   G   Bm

G             Bm
From the 22nd floor
G                    Bm
Walking down the corridor
Em              C              G
Looking out the picture window down
       D
On Sycamore

G                           Bm
While perspective lines converge
G                       Bm
Rows of cars and buses merge
Em                   C               G
All the sweet green trees of Atlanta burst
            D
Like little bombs
          Em
Or little pom-poms
       C             G
Shaken by a careless hand
                 D
That drives them off
           Em
And leaves again

C     G      D

C                 Em      D
Life just kind of empties out
G      C      Em     D
Less a deluge than a drought
G      C     Em       D
Less a giant mushroom cloud
G       C          G
Than an unexploded shell
         D
Inside a cell
               Em
Of the Lennox Hotel

C     G     D

On the 22nd floor
Found a notice on my door
While outside, the sun is shining on
Those little bombs
Those little pom-poms

Life just kind of empties out
Less a deluge than a drought
Less a giant mushroom cloud
Than an unexploded shell
Inside a cell
Of the Lennox Hotel

C   G   D   Em 

          D
Inside a cell
               Em
Of the Lennox Hotel

          D
Inside a cell
                Em
Of the Lennox Hotel
