Pretty Things.
Gretchen Peters.
Album: Blackbirds.

Intro: G A7 C6 G A7 C G

G
I knew a girl who said that beauty kills,
A7
Dulled the pain with wine and pills,
C/G                                  G
Took that slow ride down the hill to nowhere,
G
She said Pompeii crumbled and Athens fell,
A7
Heathens stormed the citadel,
C/G                                       G
A girl like me ainít got a chance in hell against Ďem.

(Chorus)
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin,
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin.

G
Rained three days, when we awoke,
A7
Sun came out and the levee broke,
C/G                                   G
Like some cruel and cosmic joke Godís playing,
G                          
Now I donít pretend that I believe,
A7
I know there ainít no guarantees,
C/G                                    G
Still morning finds me on my knees and praying.

((Chorus)
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin,
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin.

Break: G Dm C G Dm C G 

G
Come the flood you build an ark,
         A7                  G
Come the night you curse the dark,
C/G                                   G
Inside your broken heart you bear the crosses,
G
Some of us have got it made,
A7
Some of us have more than paid,
C                                         G
Weíre all marching in this slow parade of losses.

(Chorus)
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin,
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin.
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin,
    Dm             C                     G
Ooh pretty things, pretty things gone to ruin.

Dm C Em7 G Dm C G
