Going to Lubbock
(on Infidelity 7") 

I'm not totally satisfied by the first chord verse... If you find a better way...

Gsus4                  F7M+        G+
he drove north out of Dallas on a tuesday afternoon
the summer wind was sweet in his mouth as the engine whistled a solitary tune
ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere among the rocks and the tumbleweeds and the dust
he popped the trunk and he pulled out a shovel and pumped the dull blade through the earth's tough crust

        C          Cm                     G             D
when he dug up the human skull that was bigger than a basketball
         G         C           G         D               G
he took one step back he took one step back into the sunlight
       (he took   one step     he took one step baaaaaaaaack)

he stood there by the roadside underneath the clear blue sky
and ancient stories ran through his mind as a certain detail caught his eye
there was a pronounced depression along the skull's occipital bone 
space burned in the dry June sun and his forehead dripped like an ice cream cone

he laid the skull down gently in the back seat and in his mouth the summer wind was sweet
he took one step back he took one step back into the sunlight
