Lyrics

Intro

| Am . . . | Am7sus4 . . . | Fmaj7/A . . . | G . . . | (x2)

Verse

Am Am7sus4 Fmaj7/A G Sometimes on this place gets kind of empty Sound of the breath fades with the light I think about the loveless fascination Under the Milky Way Tonight Lower the curtain down in Memphis Lower the curtain down, alright I got no time for private consultation Under the Milky Way Tonight

Chorus

G Fmaj7/A Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find And its something quite peculiar Something shimmering and white It leaves you here despite your destination Under the Milky Way Tonight Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find

Solo

| C . . . | G . . . | Am . . . | Am . . . | (x4) And its something quite peculiar Something shimmering and white It leaves you here despite your destination Under the Milky Way Tonight Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find Under the Milky Way Tonight Under the Milky Way Tonight Under the Milky Way Tonight Under the Milky Way Tonight

Play as shown here. Don't let the scary chord names stop you (the Fmaj7/A is otherwise a good way to fake an F without having to use barre chords).

About

My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.

Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.

In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
