The National - Lemonworld chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: The National
Album: High Violet

This album will grow on you, this song as well.

Not 100% about the "doo doo" parts, but I think the rest sounds almost right give 
or less a few variations you can improvise yourself. This is how I play it, tabbed 
it in 10mins so may not be 100% correct. I guess the hardest part is to sing like Matt :)

No capo or capo on 1st fret.

There are basicly 4 chords as far as I can tell:

Am7/G : 302010
C/G   : 332010
F     : 133210
Em/E  : 022003 (or maybe Em7 022030, not 100% sure on this one)

Song:

Intro: strum the Am7/G chord twice seperate by a blank.

Verse 1:

   Am7/G                          F                        C/G
So happy I was invited, give me a reason to get out of the city

F                   C/G
See you inside watching swarms on TV

          Em/E
Livin' or dyin' in New York it means nothing to me


          Am7/G                       F                               C/G
I gave my heart to the Army, the only sentimental thing I could think of

     F                          C/G
With cousins and colors and somewhere overseas

          Em/E
But it'll take a better war to kill a college man like me

Am7/G            C/G              F                     C/G    
I'm too tired to drive anyway, anyway right now, do you care if I stayed?

F                   C/G
You can put on your bathing suits

         Em/E
And I'll try to find somethin' on this thing that means nothin' enough


Chorus chords:

Am7/G  (stop)     F               C/G
Losin' my breath, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
 
Am7/G             F               C/G (not sure)          
Losin' my breath, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo


Post-chorus chords:
F                        C/G
You and your sister live in a  Lemonworld
F                   C/G
I want to sit in and die
F                         C/G
You and your sister live in a  Lemonworld
            Em/E
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
F                        C/G
You and your sister live in a  Lemonworld
F                   C/G
I want to sit in and die
F                        C/G
You and your sister live in a  Lemonworld
            Em/E
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo


[Rest of the song is pretty much the same :)]


Verse 2

This pricey stuff makes me dizzy, I guess I've always been a delicate man
Takes me a day to remember a day
I didn't mean to let it get so far out of hand
I was a comfortable kid, but I don't think about it much anymore
Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say that we invented a summer lovin' torture party
I'm too tired to drive anyway, anyway right now, do you care if I stayed?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find something on this thing that means nothin' enough


Post-chorus chords:

You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...
