Intro: GG chord

Verse 1:
GG chord
The air was more than human and
GG chord
the heat was more than hungry and
GG chord                                           EmEm chord
the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes
GG chord
the bulls were running wild
GG chord
because they're big and mean and sacred and
GG chord                                           EmEm chord
the children were playing cricket with no shoes

AA chord
the next morning we woke up, man
AA chord
with a seven hour drive
CC chord
well there we were stuck in Port Blaire
CC chord                                 C7C7 chord
where boats break and children stare

Chorus:
GG chord                   DD chord
there were so many fewer questions
      EmEm chord                AA chord                 CC chord        AmAm chord
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
AmAm chord    GG chord                  DD chord
and there were so many fewer questions
      EmEm chord                AA chord                 CC chord       AmAm chord
when stars were still just the holes to heaven

Verse 2:
GG chord
disembarking from the port
GG chord
with no mistakes of any sort
GG chord                                  EmEm chord
moving south the engine running smooth
GG chord
officials were quite friendly
GG chord
once we drowned them with our sweet talk
GG chord                                        EmEm chord
we bribed them with our cigarettes and booze

AA chord
the next morning we woke up man
AA chord
with the sunrise to the right
CC chord
moving back north to Port Blaire
CC chord                                 C7C7 chord
where boats break and children stare

Chorus:
GG chord                    DD chord
there were so many fewer questions
       EmEm chord               AA chord                 CC chord         AmAm chord
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
          GG chord                  DD chord
yes and there were so many fewer questions
       EmEm chord               AA chord                  CC chord       AmAm chord
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
