 [INTRO]


 . 
 [VERSE ONE]
  Bm         A
 Wise men once said
  G               A 
 "Wild winds are death to the candle"
 Bm          A    G     A
 A rose by any other name is a scandal
 Bm        A        G 
 Cautions issued, he stood

 Shooting the messengers
    Bm           A              G A
 They tried to warn him about her

 [CHORUS]
 D            A
 Cross your thoughtless heart
  Bm    G 
 Only liquor anoints you
 D             A 
 She's the albatross
  Bm       G 
 She is here to destroy you
 
 [VERSE TWO]
 Bm         A 
 Wise men once said
   G       A 
 "One bad seed kills the garden"
   Bm         A        G          A
 "One less temptress, one less dagger to sharpen"
   Bm        A      G 
 Locked me up in towers
         A 
 But I'd visit in your dreams
   Bm                 A         G  A 
 And they tried to warn you about me

 [CHORUS]
 D            A
 Cross your thoughtless heart
  Bm    G 
 Only liquor anoints you
 D             A 
 She's the albatross
  Bm       G 
 She is here to destroy you

  D       A 
 Devils that you know
  Bm           G 
 Raise worse hell than a stranger
  D          A 
 She's the death you chose
  Bm         G
 You're in terrible danger

 [BRIDGE]
 Em G           D           A      Em G
 And when that sky rains fire on you
               D         A 
 And you're persona non grata
  Em G           D         A        Em G
 I'll tell you how I've been there too
           D             A 
 And that none of it matters
 
 [VERSE THREE]
  Bm        A         G 
 Wise men once read fake news
   A 
 And they believed it
   Bm       A           G 
 Jackals raised their hackles
  A
 You couldn't conceive it

 Bm          A        G 
 You were sleeping soundly
            A                    Bm 
 When they dragged you from your bed
 Bm               A          G    A
 And I tried to warn you about them
 
 [CHORUS]
         D          A 
 So I crossed my thoughtless heart
  Bm         G 
 Spread my wings like a parachute
  D          A 
 I'm the albatross
  Bm       G 
 I swept in at the rescue

 D          A 
 The devil that you know
   Bm         G            D 
 Looks now more like an angel
  D        A
 I'm the life you chose
   Bm           G          D  A Bm 
 And all this terrible danger
             G     D A Bm G
 (This terrible danger)

 [OUTRO]
  D              A            Bm G 
 So cross your thoughtless heart
  D            A  
 She's the albatross
 Bm        G 
 She is here to destroy you
