D chordD
We wiped out all the Buffalo
Bm chordBm
Around the turn of the last century
G chordG
And so it's factories and sawgrass
A chordA
Wheat fields and asphalt laid in front of me
D chordD
The Midwest feels like a hollow place
Bm chordBm
That we filled with love and industry
G chordG
And we're staring at the frozen ground in Goodwill suits
A chordA
Silent as the pastor reads the eulogy

Well I wanted to see just a little bit of everything
A chordA
Let me be

Chorus: D chordD G chordG
Two blackbirds on a highway sign
Bm chordBm A chordA
Are laughing at me at four in the morning
D chordD G chordG
They played the war drum out of time
Bm chordBm A chordA
So I'm not sure where I've been marching
Bm chordBm D chordD
I wanna be strong
G chordG
But it's not easy anymore
D chordD A chordA G chordG
I'm hoping I'm wrong


Verse 2:
D chordD
It's sixteen hours straight to home
Bm chordBm
From the heart of North Missouri
G chordG
And so I searched through my great-grandpop's memoirs
A chordA
For the devil in my bloodstream
D chordD
Depression grabbed his throat
Bm chordBm
And choked the life out of him slowly
G chordG
I've got the same blood coursing through my veins
A chordA
And it'll come for me eventually

Prechorus 2:
D chordD
I bet I'd be a fucking coward
Bm chordBm
I bet I'd never have the guts for war
G chordG
Cause I can't spend another month away from here
A chordA
These frantic rest stop phone calls don't get answered anymore
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm A chordA G chordG
But I I wanted to know if I could please come home
A chordA
So let me know

D chordD G chordG
Two blackbirds on a highway sign
Bm chordBm A chordA
Are laughing at me at four in the morning
D chordD G chordG
They played the war drum out of time
Bm chordBm A chordA
So I'm not sure where I've been marching
Bm chordBm D chordD
I wanna be strong
G chordG
But it's not easy anymore
D chordD A chordA G chordG
I'm hoping I'm wrong
(palm muted G chordG powerchord)
I'm hoping I'm wrong

Bridge:
D chordD A chordA
I know how it feels to be

At war with a world

That never loved me

I know how it feels to be
G chordG
At war with a world

That never loved me

D chordD G chordG
Two blackbirds on a highway sign

Are laughing at me at four in the morning

So I'm not sure where I've been marching

I wanna be strong

I wanna be strong
G chordG
But it's not easy anymore
