Decemberists - Sleepless chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is an update from thuggolfer's version. I just gave the "F1"s and "G"s their 
real names, so the transpose feature would work on the UG app.

This is a work in progress as I test out how UltimateGuitar works. 1/24/14


Dm       C             [ch]Fmaj/C[/ch]           Dm
  As you lie before me now, like a shadow
Dm   [ch]Fmaj/C[/ch]        C      Dm
on a pea green sea

       [ch]Fmaj/C[/ch]                               Dm
Never thought that I could find you so hollow
       C    Dm
Laying into me


F                       E
   But this cup of wine
                               Am    G
All salt and brine makes me sleepy
         D   F
A sorrow so  
                 E                              Am      G
A field of tears, that will never yield a single penny
            D    F
But I don't know
                     E    Am
I've got nothing to hold on to


Dm           C               FmajC         Dm
  Wished for gold so I could buy you a palace
        C         Dm
By the riverside
       [ch]Fmaj/C[/ch]                                   Dm
You'd come in and I would fill your diamond chalice
         C        Dm
You were still alive


F                       E
   But this cup of wine
                               Am    G
All salt and brine makes me sleepy
         D   F
A sorrow so  
                 E                              Am      G
A field of tears, that will never yield a single penny
            D    F
But I don't know
                     E    Am      G     D    F
I've got nothing to hold on to
                     E    Am
I've got nothing to hold on to

Am  |  F  |  G  |  G#  |  Am


         F         G             Am
Were you sleepless, tearing at the air?
        F        G        G#     Am
Was the water everywhere?
         F          G            Am
Were you fretful, to wade into the room?
         F            G
I'd been wanting to hear from you
G#  Am
Oh, no


F  |  G  |  F  |  C   (Same timing as G > G# > Am)


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (oh)
F
  You're weary, lay him down
    G
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F                        G
So now your hopes are all laid
        G#          Am
But you hand it all away


Am  |  F  |  G  |  Am
Am  |  F  |  G  |  G#  |  Am


Am         F     G           Am
  Did his eyelids fix on empty chairs
         F           G         G#    Am
You had traveled to lay beside?
           F         G          Am
A gentle torture to watch it all recede
             F               G      G#   Am     F
And all the while your mother slept beside him
    G    F    C 
Oh, no


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (oh)
F
  You're weary, lay him down
    G
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F                        G
So now your hopes are all laid
        G#          Am
But you hand it all away


Am  |  F  |  G  |  Am
Am  |  F  |  G  |  G#  |  Am


          F         G            Am
Were you sleepless, tearing at the air?
         F      G           G#    Am
Was the water everywhere?
          F          G          Am
Were you fearful, and long to run away
         F            G
From the cold clasp of Illinois?
G#  Am
Oh, no
F  G   F
Oh, No


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (ooooooh)
F
  You're weary, lay him down
    G
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F                        G
So now your hopes are all laid
                G#  Am     F      G
But you hand it all away
                G#  Am
But you hand it all away 
F    G        G#   C
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh


Am  |  F  |  G  |  C
