Guster - Manifest Destiny tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey guys, this is a great Guster song off of the album "Ganging Up on the Sun." I think 
another version, but it wasn't all that great, so here's the complete song. It's really 
piano song with backing guitar, so bare with me.

I use the barred chords for this as opposed to the open ones. It sounds more like the 
and you can add the slides and things in between them easier (as I'm too lazy to actually 
all the bells and whistles.)

Without further ado: "Manifest Destiny" by Guster

[Verse 1:]

C         Dm                     G / A
Bones are broken and the will is sunk.
C         Dm              G
How did everything get so fucked up?
 G / A   C       Dm          G
(Do you) want to change your mind?
 G / A   C       Dm          G
(You can) always change your mind.


[Chorus:]
        F               Am
You and I can quit this scene
        G               D
Build a town and then secede
        F    Am      G
Like an Adam and an Eve
        F               Am
To the dreamers go the dreams
        G               D
But believers have the lead
        F           Am          G
It's a frightening, frightening thing


[Verse 2:]
C           Dm             G / A
Born to the land of opportunity
C       Dm       G
of Manifest destiny
 G / A   C       Dm         G
(Do you) want to change your mind?
(You can) always change your mind

[Chorus:]
You and I can quit this scene
Build a town and then secede
Like an Adam and an Eve
To the dreamers go the dreams
But leaders have the lead
It's a frightening, frightening thing

[Bridge: Hit the chords just one time for each and hold it.]
C            Dm                          G
The moon and stars are ganging up on the sun
N.C. [Scream!]
rebellion

[Outro: Falsetto, people.]

F    Am        G              D
Everybody, the sky is falling down
F           Am          G               D
Friends and lovers, the world is coming down
F    Am        G              D
Down,          down...
F    Am        G              D
Down,          down...

That's it!
So, umm... Enjoy.
