     A              Dmaj7       F#m
They served you champage like a hero
         A              D               F#m
When you landed someone carried your bag
     A           D              F#m
From here on out you're patient zero
         A             Dmaj7        F#m
Smelling ether as they hand you the rag


D/f#    A
Life is good
    E
You look around and think I'm in the

Go as  planned


A           Dmaj7         F#m
Hip hip hooray, hocus pocus
          A             Dmaj7           F#m
With some magic you can fly through the air
     A              Dmaj7       F#m
But when you're the guy pulling focus
          A               D                     F#m
There are people who will wish you weren't there


D/f#    A

   E
Go west young man, go west
D                  Bm
Take a real screen test
        F#m                 Bm             
Doesn't count as a job well done
    E
The locusts had their day
D
The suckers pay and pay
Bm                          A         Bm          F#m
Garmin Stern would probably pull that trigger for fun
                       A
And in the hills where all the sunshine
F#m                  Dmaj7
Constant companions, constant companions
F#m             Amaj7            F#m
Close enough to almost tough the lights of the canyon
Dmaj7                 A   Bm
Lights of the canyon, the lights of the canyon


    A             D        F#m
The news filtered over the transom
       A             Dmaj7        F#m
That a villian ended up    with a part
    A           Dmaj7         F#m
You paid your respects like a ransom
     A               Dmaj7           F#m
To a moment that was doomed from the start


D/f#    A

F#m                    A
And in the hills where all the sunshine
F#m                  Dmaj7
Constant companions, constant companions
F#m             Amaj7            F#m
Close enough to almost tough the lights of the canyon
Dmaj7                     F#m
Lights of the canyon, the lights of the canyon
Bm                        A
Lights of the canyon, the lights of the canyon
Bm                        A             F#m
Lights of the canyon, the lights of the canyon
