Dirty Microphones Chords

[Verse 1]
 
D        A          D
Sharing dirty microphones
               A             D
With ska bands from the outer zones
        A              D
Dancing in our plastic skirts
        A            D
Trading kerosene for merch
 
 A  D (2x)
 
         A             D
Sleeping in your solar van
          A              D
We had no worries and no plans
        A                    D
Driving through the night to play
                    A 
A house show on the coast of Ohio
 
[Chorus]
 
Em
Oh no, no no, don’t think about it
G
It’s not like we can’t live without it
         D   A
It’s just music
           D    A
We used to play music
 
[Verse 2]
 
D             A                  D
Showcased for five or six drunk kids
            A            D
At South by Southwest ’56
       A            D
In an abandoned Taco Bell
            A                D
Got paid in chips and cowrie shells
 
 A  D (2x)
 
              A            D
Your mom gave me her old guitar
            A                 D
The one she bought before the war
              A            D
The pickguard still had bits of blood dried on it
     A 
Your mom was the coolest
 
[Chorus 2]
 
Em
These days, mostly, I don’t think about it, she says
  G
It’s not like I can’t live without it
          D   A
It’s just music
                D  A
We used to play music
 
G                  A
God knows we never got anywhere
G                 A
Although we went everywhere
G                        A
It’s past curfew but the neighbours are away
G                                        D
Come down to the bunker I’ll set up the PA
 
D
 
[Solo]
 
D A D A (repeat)
 
[Chorus]
 
Em
Oh no, no no, don’t think about it
G
It’s not like we can’t live without it
         D   A
It’s just music
           D    A
We used to play music
 
 
[Outro]
D       A          D
Sharing dirty microphones
                A             D
With ska bands from the outer zones
