NARCISSA….the seventh track on Greatest Hats, Vol. 1

A certain amount of vanity is good; it keeps you centered and looking sharp. However, it’s easy to get carried away…

from the album Better Liar, 2009

Narcissa
(c.robertson 09)

G D
When I finally worked up the nerve
C G
I guess I got what I deserved
G D
I said you were heaven to me
C D G G7
And you just agreed

C
Why don’t you go fuck yourself?
G
Cause you really don’t love no one else
D
Under the makeup and hair
C D G
There ain’t nobody there.

You dragged me from right into wrong
That summer was hot and long
Then you went back to that other man
now I understand.

Chorus

I could use fancier chords
An’ I could use fancier words
But it’s pretty straightforward to me
I’m sure you agree,
(and even if you don’t)

Chorus(3x)

(You can take my heart, just leave the bottle…)

(way cool backing vocals by Shiny and the Spoon: Amber Nash and Jordan Neff)
