Owen Pallett - E Is For Estranged chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hi there!  I was fed up with reading the wrong tab which has infested the 
internet.  The time signature can seem a little baffling, and the chord 
progression never seems to resolve properly making you think "Eh?", but this 
version is certainly closer to the real song.  Enjoy!
