Vampire Weekend - Step chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a great song and the tabs already on here are fine but I just wanted to 
share how I play this as it's a little different and sounds a little closer to the 
record for me.

I play it with a capo on the 3rd fret. The instructions are for the subsequent 
chord shapes with the actual chords being played in brackets. Enjoy!


[Drum on body of guitar]
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

G(Bb) G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch]) Em(Gm) D(F) C(Eb) G(Bb) C(Eb) D(F) x2

[Verse 1]
G(Bb)                        G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch])
Back back way back I used to front like Angkor Wat
Em(Gm)                      D(F)
Mechanicsburg Anchorage and Dar es Salaam
      C(Eb)                G(Bb)
While home in New York was champagne and disco
C(Eb)           D(F)
tapes from L.A. slash San Francisco
    G(Bb)                G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch])
But actually Oakland and not Alameda
     Em(Gm)                        D(F)
Your girl was in Berkeley with her Communist reader
C(Eb)                    G(Bb)
Mine was entombed within boombox and walkman
C(Eb)               D(F)
I was a hoarder but girl that was back then

G(Bb)  G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch]) Em(Gm)
Badoom Badoom     Boom


[Chorus]
    G(Bb)               G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch])       Em(Gm)
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
         D(F)
What you on about?
  C(Eb)         G(Bb)    C(Eb)         D(F)
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
    G(Bb)             G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch])    Em(Gm)
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
       D(F)
Such a modest mouse,
  C(Eb)        G(Bb)   C(Eb)        D(F)
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone

G(Bb)            G/F#([ch]Bb/A[/ch])            Em(Gm)            D(F)
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl
C(Eb) G(Bb) C(Eb) D(F)

[Verse 2]
Ancestors told me that their girl was better
She's richer than Croesus, she's tougher than leather
I just ignore all the tales of a past life
Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife
And punks who would laugh when they saw us together
Well, they didn't know how to dress for the weather
I can still see them there huddled on Astor
Snow falling slow to the sound of the master

[Chorus]
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
Such a modest mouse, I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

[Bridge] (Same chord progression as Verse and Chorus)
Wisdom's a gift, but you'd trade it for youth
Age is an honor - it's still not the truth
We saw the stars when they hid from the world
You cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl
Maybe she's gone and I can't resurrect her
The truth is she doesn't need me to protect her
We know the true death, the true way of all flesh
Everyone's dying, but girl - you're not old yet

[Chorus]
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
Such a modest mouse, I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl
