                             OVIEDO - Blind Pilot
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: djweeks13
One of my favorite Blind Pilot songs and I haven't found an accurate, complete tab, so here goes.

Standard Tuning
Capo V | All chords relative to capo

 The | signifies the end of every two-bar phrase

C     032010
E*    032100 (E with the flat 6)
Fmaj7 133210 (If I write "F" I mean Fmaj7, I just didn't have room to write it out.)
G     320003
E     022100

On the first C chord of the verses, he often starts with the 4th (D) string open and hammers on the second fret

     C                         E*                    F   G                      C

Verse
C                                     E*
The thrill here is quicker than you'd think
                                       Fmaj7
The way in some jet-lagged bar they're pouring the wine
                           C                    G
From over their heads then sit back down again
C                                 E*
Four times is once too much for luck
                              Fmaj7
And that's how many times the clock struck
           C                      G
I wandered home, saying your name

     Bb7                                       C

Verse
C                                            E*
The arches here were built 'cause they don't fall
                          Fmaj7
The catedrals to make you feel small
          C               G
You might find your small soul
C                               E*
Leave the preaching to the president

The crowd cheers, his eyes get wet
    Fmaj7
I'm full as it is, I'm full as it is
   C                 G
So don't feed me more


Chorus
E                   Fmaj7               C   G
You'll be having my head, big as a birthday
       E             Fmaj7            C      G
'Cause I left all my doubts on the airplane

Bb7                              C           G
I didn't know, I didn't know I'm not in control
Bb7                            C
I didn't know, I'm not invincible

Verse
C                                         E*
And maybe some things are better left unsaid
                               Fmaj7                        C                 G
But if you wanted to test that out, well, yeah, I guess you couldn't have said
C                                         E*
But there were nights in bars that I recall
                                   Fmaj7
Your breath was courage laced with alcohol
            C      G
You leaned in and said


Chorus
E                    Fmaj7           C  G
"Make music with the chatter in here,
E                    Fmaj7           C   G
And whisper all the notes in my ears."
Bb7                              C                  G
I didn't know, I didn't know the weight of my tongue
Bb7                                  C
I didn't know, I didn't know what I'd done

     C   F     Bb7                                         C

Verse
C                                        E*
The lights here are softer than you'd think
                               Fmaj7
The dim lit peacocks in the trees,
                                    C            G
They're hiding their eyes and their beauty, like me
C                          E*
But if my eyes were on my back
                           Fmaj7
I know what I'd be looking at
                       C          G
Through every shade of brown and green


Outro
Bb7                             C           G
I didn't know, I didn't know it was nothing new
Bb7                                 C
I didn't know, I didn't know it was you
