Song: Cassiopeia
Artist: Joanna Newsom
Album: "The Milk-Eyed Mender"

Tab by Devin Miller

Tuning: Standard EADGBe ***CAPO 2nd Fret

******************************************************************

INTRO:

I will tab these harmonics as if there was no capo...because they are
high up on the fret board (so play these on the indicated fret with a
capo on 2).

   F#   C#    E    B    E    C#

D|------------7+---5+---7+-------------|
A|-9+----------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|


Feel the matress tense beneath me
like the muscle of nonsleepy;
Feathers flexing will defeat me,
and it vexes me completely.

VERSES:

        Esus4         E
And the hexes heat covertly

       Bm                     E
like a slow low-flying turkey

       Esus4        E
like a Texan drying jerky

        Bm                     E
but his meaty mitts can't hurt me

        Esus4           E
With my steely will compounded
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/j/joanna-newsom/211667.html ]
     Bm                       E
in a mighty mound that's hounded

       Esus4                  E
by the snap your steel string sounded,

        Bm                      E
just before your snores unwound it.

-----

       D7M                 A7M
And in store are dreams so daring

         Bm                      A7M
that the night can't stop from staring.

-----

          Esus4        E
I'll swim sweetly as a herring

            Bm                    E
through the ether, not despairing.

-----

      A                   E
Go to sleep, you stunning sky;

    D                E
gently creep cunning by:

     F#m             E
A quiet hum is amplified

        D                   E
by your thumb, that you suck dry.

        A             E              D            E
Hundred raging waters snare the lonely sigh.

          F#m                 E     D      E         
Hold your breath and clasp at Cassiopiea.

        A             E              D            E
Hundred raging waters snare the lonely sigh.

          F#m                 E     D      E         
Hold your breath and clasp at Cassiopiea.

-----

         Esus4           E
Cassiopeia.

Bm              E         Esus4
   Cassiopeia!

    E    Bm            E 
Ohhhh....Cassiopeia!

-----

D       E       D       E
