PEDRO THE LION:  FEWER BROKEN PIECES

TABBED BY: STEVEN HUMPHREYS


A fantastic song by david bazan about his breakup with the band pedro the lion.  It's
personal, but evne though its SO incredibly specific to himself, it still somehow manages
apply to everyone who hears it somehow.  It's amazing.  I haven't found a single tab 
for this song after searching for about half an hour I decided to just figure out the
myself. A beautiful song to play at a show.

NOTE:  I don't know many chord names, so when I say "Fm" it means the F barre chord on
1st fret

STANDARD TUNING---CAPO ON 3RD


VERSE 1:

C              F                Am                Em
If you make a reference to some trouble, that you know
Fm               G                  C
Can it help you keep it under control?
E                  Am         Em
Or should I really re---consider
   Fm                 C
My reasons for going solo
Dm                  Em              G
David byrne on Bob Costas, puts it pretty well
    G (moved 1 fret up the fretboard)
But I put it better


CHORUS:
Am      C        F
I still run the show
 F     C      G
Don't you forget it
     A      C        F
So I had to let some go
               C       G
Don't think I don't regret it
        Am  C    F                C          G
Cause I do and I don't think I'm better off alone


INTERLUDE
 F                       G
Man I could have, had a, big sound
 F                       G
But I love to, let my, friends down


VERSE 2
F            C             Dm   Em     Am
Fewer moving parts means fewer broken Pieces
     F           C         Dm      Em         G
When every other start requires a brand new theosis
F               C                G(moved up 1 fret)
One good friend remarks with a rightfully angry:
 Am     C     Fm                     C
"Jesus dude! None of us know what to do with you"
         Dm             Em
To which I in my pride responded
           G
"I've got news for you:
G(moved up 1 fret)
None of you have to, cause"

(play chorus again)
