Decemberists - Decemberists chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Here it is. All of the Decemberists' songs and albums in one tab. I'll try to keep it
updated as they cue out with new albums, but it will take a little bit of time to update
however, so don't expect instant service ;). Also, songs that are on more than one album 
will not be repeated. There are also a few songs that are impossible to get chords for so
I have the tab. Any songs with no "Original Tabbers" are ones tabbed by me.

VERSE 1

Cmaj7
The film was a bust but we stayed till the ending
                                                   G
Hair all a-mussed but your clothes didn't look so bad
       Cmaj7
And back on the street the rain was descending
                                              G
In cold dirty sheets, so under the awning we sat
                              Cmaj7
And then you hailed yourself a yellow cab

PRE-CHORUS

       C                                          G
And I sat for a time by the valets in line and I read what you wrote on the card
         C                                           G
Above a cowboy you drew a big talk balloon saying "Try not to take it so hard"

CHORUS

                     Am                                       C
But there's this nagging suspicion that won't leave me alone tonight
                                                                  G
It's just that everything I try to do, nothing seems to turn out right

VERSE 2

Cmaj7
We laid on our backs and stared at the ceiling
                                                          G
Messed with your slacks, but ended up just holding your hand
Cmaj7
The rain will remain, the TV was telling
                                                    G
A drip of the drain as your legs lift to brilliantly bend
                              Cmaj7
And fall to resting on the ottoman

PRE-CHORUS

       C                                           G
So we turned off the tube and we crawled to your room leaving discarded
clothes in our wake
       C                                           G
And we both had some fun, though I twice bit my tongue, and it lasted too long for my taste

CHORUS

                     Am                                       C
And there's this nagging suspicion that won't leave me alone tonight
                                                                 G
It's just that everything I try to do, nothing seems to turn out right

C     G  C    G  C     G
La haaa la haaa la di da

CHORUS

                     Am                                       C
But there's this nagging suspicion that won't leave me alone tonight
                                                                 G
It's just that everything I try to do, nothing seems to turn out right

OUTRO

Cmaj7
A wink and a wave and you're off to your family
                                            G
I sit and watch as the taxi lights distantly fade
Cmaj7
I guess I always thought it'd end this way

VERSE 1

Crone:
Here upon this pillow
Made of reed and willow
You're a fickle little twister
Are you sweet on your sister?
Your fallow won't leave you alone.

VERSE 2

And granted for their pleasure
Possessions laid to measure
She's a salty little pisser
With your cock in her kisser
But now she's a will of her own

They settled dust in your hair

To watch you shake and shout it out.

And the evening's tucked in tow,
          C          Am      G            G7
On the horizon, my true love I see-e-e-e-eee.
             C              C7
She ain't fancy, she ain't fine
           F                   Fm
While her fingers number only nine
            C           Am            F     G
She's the belle of the ball of the insurgency.

CHORUS

         C                               Am
She's my Bandit Queen, laying beneath the moon
       F                              G
In a bandit cave, a blanket laid for two
            C                                   Am
If I could find a way to your hideaway by the sea

O Bandit Queen, steal away to me.

BRIDGE

Am
Somewhere on a mountain, by a starry water fountain

In an alcove hid by some trees
Am
Amidst a pile of treasure, reclining at her leisure,
   F                         G
My ladylove sniffs at the breeze.
F
And sitting up, she adjusts her turban
    C
And takes another swig from a bottle of bourbon
    D7                                                G
And listening to the whistling of the train in station
N.C
Odds are it will never reach its destination.
           C                                    Am
'Cause the Bandit Queen, astride her steed will ride
    F                   G                                     C
Oh, let me be the one to lay within your theivin' arms tonight.


CHORUS

She's my Bandit Queen, laying beneath the moon

In a bandit cave, a blanket laid for two

We sailed away on a winter's day
Cadd9
With fate as malleable as clay
G
But ships are fallible, I say
Cadd9
And the nautical, like all things, fades
G
And I can recall our caravel
Cadd9
A little wicker beetle shell
G
With four fine maste and lateen sails
Cadd9
Its bearings on Cair Paravel

Oh my love

Oh it was a funny little thing

VERSE 2

The sight of bridges and balloons
Cadd9
Makes calm canaries irritable
G
And they caw and claw all afternoon
Cadd9
Centenaries and dirigibles
G
Brace and buoy the living room
Cadd9
A loom of metal warp woof wimple
G
And a thimbles worth of milky moon
Cadd9
Can touch hearts larger than a thimble

CHORUS

Am    Cadd9
Oh my love

Oh it was a funny little thing

To be

VERSE 1

E
Those were the days of Elaine, that was the phrase that she used to describe
       D           A            E
To her son, of the fun, she had had
E
Long before he went away, long before days of the dull and the dregs
        D            A          E
And the lull and the call never came

PRE-CHORUS

          C       D     E
To say,   oh oh oh oh oh

VERSE 2

E
Loitering lavender park, laying about in the day and the dark
     D              A           E
Of a room while the noon passes by
E
Always on verge of collapse, mother would quit and then suffer a lapse
         D               A             E
From the drink you would think she was dead

PRE-CHORUS

              C       D     E
But they say,   oh oh oh oh oh
          C       D     E
She says,   oh oh oh oh oh

CHORUS

C#m
And the time that it takes
        B
Well it goes so slow
C#m
And she laid on the brakes
    B
And she dove below
           A
Doesn't it go so slow
         Ab                     A
When you build it up to tear it down
               E
You're tearin' down
            A
You tear it down
F#
Those were the days

Those were the days of Elaine

The days of Elaine

The days of Elaine

VERSE 3

A lover like Alan Gulan, she followed him blind from saloon to salon

From the hills to the pills he would take
E
Father died in the mines, brother showed no remorse for his times

When they strung him up
       A                  E
He got all hung up on the scaffolding

E          A      B    E
I'm really sorry Steven
Ab                          C#m  A
But your bicycle's been stolen
E
I was watchin' it for you
F#                        A
'Til you came back in the fall
    F#                          A
Guess I didn't do such a good job after all

VERSE 2

E         A          B       E
I was feeling really sorry Steven
Ab                      C#m      A
And I spent all morning grieving
E
And everybody's saying
F#                         A
That you'll take the news gracefully
F#                          A
Somehow I don't think I'll be getting off that easily

CHORUS

C#m             A
I meant her no harm
E               Ab
When I left her unlocked Outside the Orange Street Food Farm
C#m                 A
I was just running in
E                             Eb
Didn't think I'd be that long
C#m                   A
I came out, she was gone
E                             Ab
And all that was there was some bored old dog
C#m               A                  E
Leashed up to the place where your bicycle had been
F#                       B
Guess we'll never see poor Madeleine again

VERSE 3
E            A       B        E
Let this be consolation, Steven
Ab                                   C#m  A
That all the while you were in England
E
I treated her with care and respect
F#                        A
And have her lots of love
                   F#                        A
And I was usually pretty good 'bout locking her up

CHORUS

C#m             A
Where has she gone?
E                  Ab
Well, I bet she's on the bottom of a Frenchtown pond
C#m                                 A
Rudely abused on some hescher's joyride
E                       Eb
So I wrote you this song
C#m                              A
In the hopes that you'd forgive me
E                      Ab
Even though it was wrong
C#m               A                  E
Being so careless with a thing so great
F#                               B
And taking your poor Madeleine away, away

Where we laid our,     first daughter

The infernal rattling of the rain, still remains

Hear the corncrakes, and the deer hooves

And the sleet rain on the slate roof
Em                         A          Cmaj7       B7
A medallion locked inside her hands, in her hands

Of the barren of her belly
Em                         A          Cmaj7       B7
Do his calluses cure her furrowed brow, even now

Myla Goldberg hangs a crooked foot all upside down

Ambling madly all over the town
                                D
The call to arms you likened to a whisper
               C#
I likened to a radio.
D                             C#
You were a brickbat, a Bowery tough,
                                D
So rough they culled you from a cartoon.
                   C#
Pulled out of your pantaloons.

But you, my bombazine doll
                F#m                                 E
The bullets may singe your skin and the mortars may fall.
    A                 E
But I have never felt so much light
     F#m                     D
Than tonight, huddled in the trenches,
              A
Gazing on the battlefield.

Our rifles blaze away.

We blaze away. Oh Oh Oh

VERSE 2

D                          C#
Corporal Bradley of regiment five

In proud array, standing by the bathing
                         C#
Soldiers and the stevedores.
D                                     C#
We laid on the mattress and tumbled to sleep
                                     D
Our eyes aligned, swaddled in our civies
                     C#
Cradled in our dungarees.

I'd rather I'd lose my limbs than let you come to harm.

But you, my bombazine doll

The bullets may singe your skin and the mortars may fall.

Kin or she'll end up dead

VERSE 1

Dmaj7                            Gmaj7
This cocoon, caught in Vesuvius' shadow
                Dmaj7
Only the ashes remain
    Gmaj7
And I waited there for you
             Dmaj7      Gmaj7
Why couldn't you?

VERSE 2

Dmaj7                               Gmaj7
Here we lie waiting for something to startle
                           Dmaj7
To shake us from gravity's pull
    Gmaj7
And so sleeping hours are through
            Dmaj7       Gmaj7
What can we do?

PRE-CHORUS

     Bm                    Gmaj7           Em7
The sorry conclusion, the low dirty war, it happened before you came to
     Bm                    Gmaj7
But this is solution, and this is amends
     Em7
The joke always tends to come true
     C                        Am                 E
But there on your windowsill over the unmoving platoon
 C                      Am                      E
Written in paperback, view to the quarterback's room

Under waning moon

Take this palm, follow the lines here are written
                                  Dmaj7
And script out the rest of your life
  Gmaj7
And feel your fingers falling slack
               Dmaj7       Gmaj7
And all folding back

PRE-CHORUS

     Bm                    Gmaj7
The tainted election, the hole in the sky
Em7
Command what is tried, what is true
     Bm                    Gmaj7
But without solution, with feet on the ground
Em7
It won't make a sound 'til you're through

So loosen your shoulder blades

This is your hour to make due
     C                        Am
Because there on the timberline
                                  E
Deep cold November shines through
           G
Soft and absolute

Grace Cathedral hill,

All wrapped in the bones of a setting sun,

All dust and stone and moribund.

I paid twenty-five cents to light

A little white candle

For a New Year's day
  Em
I sat and watched it burn away
     C
Then turned and weaved through the slow decay.
         D
We were both a little hungry
       D7
So we went to get a hotdog.
G
Down the Hyde St. Pier,
         Em
The light was slight and disappeared.

The air, it sunk of fish and beer.

We heard a superman trumpet

Play the National Anthem.

All sing "Fifty three bucks
    D7
To buy a brand new halo."

I'm sweet on a green-eyed girl,

All fiery Irish clip and curl,

All brine and piss and vinegar.

I paid twenty-five vents to light

A little white candle.

I'm a legionnaire, camel in disrepair,

Hoping for a Frigidaire to come passing by.

I am on reprieve, lacking my joise de vivre,

Since they shipped me to this foreign shore,

Fighting in a foreign war,

So far away from my home.

With a roar of cars and the lolling of the cafe bars
       Gm                            Bb
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine.

Longing for the old fecundity of my homeland.

The smattering of distant applause is ringing in my poor ears.

On the old left bank, my baby in a charabanc,
               G                   Bb           A
Riding up the width and length of the Champs Elysee.

From stairway to station, we made a sensation

Sweet mother while your brother was so cruel

And here in the alleys your spirits were rallied

As you learned quick to make a fast buck

In bathrooms and ballrooms, on dumpsters and heirlooms

We bit our tongues

We are two Mariners, our ship's sole survivors,

In this belly of a whale

It's ribs our ceiling beams, it's guts our carpeting,
                                 Am
I guess we have some time to kill
You may not remember me, I was a child of three,
                 E
And you a lad of eighteen

But I remember you, and I will relate to you,
                        Am
How our histories interweave

VERSE 2

F                                        Am
At the time you were a rake and a roustabout.
 F                                          E      F  E
Spending all your money on the whores and hounds. Oh-oh

You had a charming air, all cheap and debonair,
My widowed mother found so sweet
Am
And so she took you in, her sheets still warm with him,
Now filled with filth and foul disease.

VERSE 3

F                                                Am
As time wore on you proved a debt-ridden drunken mess.

Leaving my mother a poor consumptive wretch. Oh-oh

And then you disappeared.

Your gambling arrears, the only thing you left behind.
And then the magistrate, reclaimed our small estate,

And my poor mother lost her mind.

Then one day in spring my dear, sweet mother died.

clawing at the ceiling of his grave, oh-oh."

VERSE 4

Am
It took me fifteen years to swallow all my tears,
                         E
Among the urchins in the street
And then a priory, took pity and hired me
                                Am
To keep their vestry nice and neat.
F                     Am             F

The captain of his ship, who matched you toe to tip,

Was known for wanton cruelty.

The following day I shipped to sea with a privateer.

Clawing at the ceiling of his grave, oh-oh."

We had you in our sights, after 20 months at sea.
Your starboard flanked abeam, I was getting my muskets clean,

When came this rumbling from beneath

The ocean shook, the sky went black and the captain quailed.

Don't know how I survived, the crew all was chewed alive,

It gives my heart great joy to see your eyes glow with fear.

Got my heart right pierced by a pin

Sing muse of the warning by the whistle
A night so dark in the waning

A teenage lookout on the signal tower
The mogul's daughter in hogties
The mogul fingers the wrong guy

XIII. Annan Water

VERSE 1

Am
Annan water, you loom so deep and wide
I would cross over if you would stem the tide
Or build a boat that I might ford the other side
                                                                  F
To reach the farther shore where my true love lies in wait for me
G           Am   F           Em  G           Am
In wait for me,  in wait for me, in wait for me

VERSE 2

Oh, great river, your waters ramble wild
The horses shiver and bite against the bridle
But I will cross if mine own horse is pulled from me
                                                            F
Though my mother cries that if I try I sure will drowned be
G             Am  F            Em G             Am
Will drowned be, will drowned be, will drowned be

CHORUS

            D   Dm              A   F#m
But if you calm     and let me pass
         D           E                 A   A7
You may render me a wreck when I come back
               D   Dm                A     A7
So calm your waves     and slow the churn
             D               E                Am
And you may have my precious bones on my return

VERSE 3

Annan water, oh hear my true love's call
Hear her holler above your water's pall
God, that I could that my two arms could give me wings
                                                                      F
And I would cross your breadth and rest my breast about her amber ring
G            Am F            Em G             Am
Her amber ring, her amber ring, her amber ring

CHORUS

            D   Dm              A   F#m
But if you calm     and let me pass
         D           E                 A   A7
You may render me a wreck when I come back
               D   Dm                A     A7
So calm your waves     and slow the churn
             D               E            [start verse tabs here]
And you may have my precious bones on my return
              Dm
On my, on my return

Am
