UNDER THE MILKY WAY TONIGHT

 

Church

 

(First guitar part)

 

[Am] Sometimes when this [Am7sus4] place gets kind of [Fmaj7] empty [G]
[
Am] The sound of the [Am7sus4] breath fades with the [Fmaj7] light [G]
[
Am] I think a-[Am7sus4]-bout the [Fmaj7] loveless fasci-[G]-nation
[
Am] Under the [Am7sus4] Milky Way to-[Fmaj7]-night [G]

[
Am] Lower the [Am7sus4] curtain down on [Fmaj7] Memphis [G]
[
Am] Lower the [Am7sus4] curtain down all [Fmaj7] right [G]
[
Am] I've got no [Am7sus4] time for [Fmaj7] private consul-[G]-tation
[
Am] Under the [Am7sus4] Milky Way [Fmaj7] tonight [G]

[
G] Wish I knew what you were [Fmaj7] looking for
[
G] Might have known what you would [Fmaj7] find

[
Am] And it's [Am7sus4] something quite pe-[Fmaj7]-culiar [G]
[
Am] Something [Am7sus4] shimmering and [Fmaj7] white [G]
[
Am] That leads you [Am7sus4] here [Fmaj7] despite your desti-[G]-nation
[
Am] Under the [Am7sus4] Milky Way to-[Fmaj7]-night [G]

[
G] Wish I knew what you were [Fmaj7] looking for
[
G] Might have known what you would [Fmaj7] find
[
G] Wish I knew what you were [Fmaj7] looking for
[
G] Might have known what you would [Fmaj7] find
