Villagers / Becoming a Jackal

Okay yes i MAY have just copied the other version and corrected a few
chords, but who cares if it sounds good? :D I based most of the chords i
changed by the connor guy's jools holand performance, just solo guitar so
its easier to transcribe. Anyway, have fun...

Verse 1:

Am     Am7/G    Dadd9
  The most familiar rose 
 B7                    Em          (Em7)
Every implement was leading to you 
           C       C/B          G
And your homely sense of dissaray 
                Dm
Never once the same 
C     C/B    Am
Always rearranged 
     Am7/G          Dadd9
But things would never change 
B7                         Em       (Em7)
In the seam between the window frame 
            C         C/B           G
Where the jackals preyed on every soul 
                          Dm
Where they tied you to a pole 
C      C/B                  G
And stripped you of your clothes 

Chorus:

(G)        C    Bm
   I was a dreamer 
Em              Am    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G               C       Bm
   Out onto the main street 
Em                       Am        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes 


Verse 2:
               
           Am      Am7/G          Dadd9
And each time they found fresh meat to chew 
B7                       Em          (Em7)
I would turn away and return to you 
            C       C/B          G
You would offer me your unmade bed 
                  Dm    C
Feed me till I'm fed   
        C/B           Am
And read me till I'm read
     Am7/G      Dadd9 
But when the morning came 
B7                           Em     (Em7)
You would catch me at the window again 
        C         C/B            G              (Riff)
In an eyes wide open sleeping state            e--------------
               Dm  (Pause, then riff)   C      B------0-------
Staring into space                             G--0h3---3p0---
         C/B           G                       D--------------
With no look upon my face                      A--------------
                                               E--------------

Chorus:

(G)        C    Bm
   I was a dreamer 
Em              Am    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G               C       Bm
   Out onto the main street 
Em                       Am        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes 


Bridge:

C                C/B      
And when I got older
Am             Am7/G 
When I grew bolder
F                       G7                (Riff 2)
Out onto the streets I flew           e----0----0-----
Am                    C/B             B----1----1----- 
Released from your shackles           G----0----0-----  (didn't know how to
C                   (riff 2)          D----0----2-----   explain it...) :/
I danced with the Jackals             A----3----3-----
F                        G7           E---------------
And learned a new way to move


Verse 3:

         Am    Am7/G      Dadd9 
So before you take this song as truth 
B7                             Em      (Em7)
You should wonder what I'm taking from you 
        C                     G
How I benefit from you being here 
                 Dm   C                     
Lending me your ears 
           C/B             G
While I'm selling you my fears 

(G)        C    Bm
   I was a dreamer     (I'm selling you my fears) 
Em               Am    Bm
   Staring out windows   (I'm selling you my fears) 
G                C       Bm
   Out onto the main street   (I'm selling you my fears) 
Em                        Am        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes    (I'm selling you...) 

G        C    Bm
   I was a dreamer 
Em              Am    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G               C       Bm
   Out onto the main street 
Em                       Am        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes
