Richmond Fontaine - Give Me Time

casino lights

when I'm looking out thirteen miles outside

don't stop unless you

give me boilermakers

F.........C
give me boilermakers

G.........C
give me boilermakers

G.........F
give me time

F.............................................C
this night's so crippled, clouded by you

disappear into the
slender of your back
as we near the industrial line
only twenty miles out
can't wait to get back to
the safeline
where the bright lights never flicker
they just blind

give me boilermakers
give me boilermakers
give me boilermakers
give me time
this night's so crippled, clouded by you

no insurance policy
or license to guard me
it don't matter now
cause were inside the city lines
still I disappear into the
calmness of your voice
and I'm held in your pale light hands
soon the dim lights
will grow bright
and they'll drown me in them

give me boilermakers
give me boilermakers
give me boilermakers
give me time
this night's so crippled, clouded by you
