Laura Veirs – Spelunking

Tuning on this is tuned up one full step: aDF#B. If you use capos you can just put it on the second fret and play accordingly.

Intro: C (8 cts), Dm (8cts), A (16 cts)

        Am
The tiny midnight caravan
                  C
Made its way across the black hills
        Dm
As I watched from a distance
         F
The slow-going glow
                Dm
They’re wandering you know
                   G
Made me pine
               C
For the lamplight
                       F
Where you lie
                       A
Where you lie

    Am
If I took you darling
              C
To the caverns of my heart
                       Dm
Would you light the lamp dear?
                       F
Would you light the lamp dear?
                Dm
And see fish without eyes
G
Bats with their heads
                  C
Hanging down towards the ground
                       F
Would you still come around?
             A
Come around?

(Solo on the same chords)

Am
I believe in you
               C
In your honesty and your eyes
Dm
Even when I’m sloshing
             F
In the muck of my demise
    Dm
A large part of me
     G
Is always and forever tied
              C
To the lamplight
                F
Of your eyes
                A
Of your eyes

You can find this song on the iTunes Store :)
