From the album "Notes of Blue"
Words and Music by Jay Farrar

***On the record, Farrar plays this in an alternate tuning (a la Nick Drake). However, this is how the band
plays it live. These chords are taken from watching Farrar play the song live in Asheville, NC on 3/14/2017.

[Intro]
Em  A  D  G/B  Em  A  D


[Verse]
D                                       G/B
Don't get down when the cavalry doesn't arrive
               Em                              D
That's only in Hollywood and they didn't get it right
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                               G/B
The air is colder closer to the ground
          Em                     D
Find your footing and leave your doubts
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                                   G/B
Promise the world to each other, to obey
              Em                      D
In the end it matters, it's worth the fight
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                                       G/B
We all move mountains that stand in the way
             Em                        D
Just part of being here, making things right
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way
