Peter Bjorn And John - Poor Cow tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
NOTES:
-The whole song is played with bar chords, although A sounds fine open obviously. I 
to match the timing to the lyrics.
-For the E chords play the bar chord, not the open.
-The bits in the chorus that go A A A E or A A E, try to slide up from the A to the E 
you're playing an open A).
-The riff goes along with the words Peter sings, just follow them as you listen to get timing.

SONG:

E E A   E E A   C# 
A   A A E

     C#  C# B         B      B  A
When all is gone, and things go wrong,
[Riff]
We don't need them anymore.
    C#C#B         B   B    A
The artifacts and all they lack,

[Riff]
We don't need them anymore.


E E A    E E A    C# 
A    A A E

  C#    C#       B          B  B  A
I don't have the means, and so it seems
[Riff]
For now I can't participate.
    C#   C#     B
But I've waited long,
        B  B     A
Now the dollar's strong again,

[Riff]
I still can't participate.


E E  F#m              C#      A            E
     When we don't consume it seems we are immune
   C#                       B
To all of the thoughts they sell,
    B    B  F#m
You know as well as I, that's a lie...


                   E E E A           E 
E A
'Cause I want to spend, I want to spend,
                   C# C# C# A           E 
E A
In a never-ending story, but it always ends.
            E E E A          E E 
A
I want to spend, I want to spend,
                    C# C# C# A          A 
A E
In a never-ending story, but it always ends.


    C#   C# B       B     B     A
And when I die, the angels will try

[Riff]
To count all my belongings.

   C#     C#  B           B     B     A
To measure my worth, pure gold, solid dirt,
[Riff]
To see if I'm worth keeping.
Lyrics


E E  F#m             C#   A             E
     But the house I rent and the car I drive,
    C#                   B
I'm sorry but they ain't mine.
    B    B  F#m
You know as well as I, that's no lie...


                   E E E A          E 
E A
'Cause I want to spend, I want to spend,
                    C# C# C# A          E 
E A
In a never-ending story, but it always ends.
            E E E A          E E 
A
I want to spend, I want to spend,
                    C# C# C# A          E 
E A
In a never-ending story, but it always ends.
               E E E A             C# 
C# A
And it always ends, and it always ends...
