verse:

Cadd9            Am/C
saw a rising red lung
Cadd9            Gmadd4
glisten under the sun
Cadd9                Gmadd4
i wonder when it will pop
       Fadd4 (only one bar)
in the snow

Cadd9            Am/C
the melody’s a mistake
Cadd9            Gmadd4
an embrace at the wake
Cadd9           Gmadd4
how long does it take
          Fadd4
for us to know

Cadd9                    Am/C
i want a wig that’s been blown
Cadd9         Gmadd4
by something unknown
Cadd9         Gmadd4
buried under a mile
   Fadd4
of snow

Cadd9               Am/C
found a fix for the fits
Cadd9         Gmadd4
come listen to this
Cadd9           Gmadd4
as intimate as a kiss
       Fadd4
over a phone
        Dm9
and it goes…

*(important note: i think this is what Jeff Tweedy is actually playing during the 
instrumental, but I suggest picking or strumming the chords if playing alone...i will note the 
chord shapes at the bottom)

it’s buried under the hiss
       Fadd4  (only one bar)
and It glows

Cadd9           Am/C
like a powerful smile
Cadd9      Gmadd4
a car radio dial

as intimate as a kiss

over a phone

About the artist behind Rising Red Lung:

Wilco is an American rock band based in Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 1993 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar's departure from that group. Wilco's lineup has changed frequently, with only singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt remaining from the original incarnation. The other current members are guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche. Wilco has released six studio albums, a live double album, and three collaborations: two with Billy Bragg, and one with The Minus 5.

Wilco's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including Bill Fay and Television, and has in turn influenced music by The National and Cherry Ghost. The band continued in the alternative country of Uncle Tupelo on its debut album A.M. (1995), but has since introduced more experimental aspects to their music.

Wilco garnered media attention for its fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002), and the controversy surrounding it. After the recording sessions were complete, Reprise Records rejected the album and dismissed Wilco from the label. As part of a buy-out deal, Reprise gave Wilco the rights to the album for free. After streaming Foxtrot on its website, Wilco sold the album to Nonesuch Records in 2002. Both record labels are subsidiaries of Warner Music Group, leading one critic to say that the album showed "how screwed up the music business [was] in the early twenty-first century."[1] Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is Wilco's most successful release to date, selling over 590,000 copies. Wilco won two Grammy Awards for their fifth studio album, 2004's A Ghost Is Born, including Best Alternative Music Album.
