Neutral Milk Hotel - Engine tab

This is a favorite, I'm glad I can contribute it for the benefit of  others because
it's been a simple but satisfying song to play. There are a couple recordings of this
song and Jeff Mangum sings different lyrics for some of the lines but the chords are
the same.


It's the same three chords repeated throughout, he holds the C chord in a couple places.
[ Tab from: ]
    G        A         C           G 
For I am an engine and I'm rolling on
                 A           C             G
the world is all bending and breaking from me
(or:through endless revision to say what I mean)
               A             C               G                     
for sweetness alone who flew out through the window
    A           C                   G
and landed back home in a garden of green
    A               C                   G
               A           C         G
you're riding alone in the back of a steamer
                A            C           G
and steaming yourself in the warm shower spray 
                A          C              G
and water rolls on off the round captains belly
                 A           C             G
who's talking to tigers from his cafeteria tray
               A               C               G
                      A           C             G
and your sweet babies cry for the cool taste of milking
             A            C        G
that milky delight that invited us all
                 A             C           G
and if there's a taste in this life more inviting
                  A           C                           G
than wake up your windows and watch as those sweet babies crawl 
A        C   G              A  C                           G
        awaaay yeah mmm mmm mmm dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee 
               A                       C                  G
               A                       C                  G
