Whoa-oo yeah-a-yeah

Those soles are comfort
She said that's credit card
New shoes walking home
She don't own a car car car

She turns the lights off
Electric bill is high
She's glad (that) Harry's out
'Cause she hates to cry, cry cry

(chorus: full strums)
C/G           G
Under these dirty skies
    D9/F#             D
Her dirty wings they let her fly
C/G               G
And under these dirty skies

Her dirty wings they let her fly

Give me some reasons
Not just enough is enough
She pricks her skin
From thinking she could take too much

Just a damn fairy tale
She laughs outside
She can't keep it up
Sleeping girl has to close her eyes

Under these dirty skies
Her dirty wings they let her fly
And under his dirty skies
Her dirty wings they let her hide

(bridge)
    C             
The city sings like sirens
   D (slide open C up 2 frets)
Is melting in the wind
 C                        Em
Fading when it is exposed      to (the) sun
C
Turning on the shower
       D
She is melting in the water
       Em
She is fading in the moonlight
C            D
Turning into mud

Under these dirty skies
Her dirty wings they let her fly
And under these dirty skies
Her dirty wings they let her fly
And under these dirty skies
Her dirty wings they let her fly

Let her fly
