Yo La Tengo - Our Way To Fall chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: Yo La Tengo
Album: And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out
Song: Our Way to Fall

Tuning: Standard

A spectacular song off of And Then Nothing... and definitely one of my faves from YLT.
A thing I would say to watch out for is the timing of the chord changes, as the timing 
is different with every verse and chorus.

First off, the actual guitar part of the song is a simple one-note riff played 
throughout the whole song:

|e-------------------|
|B---1---1---1-1-1---|
|G-------------------|
|D-------------------|
|A-------------------|
|E-------------------|

Now here are the chords used in the song:

   Fmaj7   F     F7    G     C     A     C*
|e---0-----1-----3-----3-----x-----x-----x----|
|B---1-----1-----1-----3-----x-----10----12---|
|G---2-----2-----2-----0-----5-----9-----12---|
|D---3-----3-----3-----0-----5-----7-----10---|
|A---3-----3-----x-----2-----3-----x-----x----|
|E---x-----1-----x-----3-----x-----x-----x----|

INTRO:

Play guitar riff for one bar, then:

|Fmaj7   C   |G   Fmaj7   |F7       |F   Fmaj7   |F   Fmaj7   |


VERSE 1: (play guitar riff for first half of the verse, then the chords)

I remember a summer's day,
I remember walking up to you,
I remember my face turned red,
And I remember staring at my feet

Fmaj7   F
          I remember before we met,
Fmaj7   C     Fmaj7
          I remember sitting next to you,
F7                Fmaj7                      G        Fmaj7
          And I remember pretending I wasn't looking

CHORUS 1:

A  F7                         F                     Fmaj7
      So we'll try and try,     even if it lasts an hour,
           F7               F                       Fmaj7
      With all our might,     we'll try and make it ours,
                   F7          A
      'Cause we're on our way, we're on our way to fall in love

F7   F   Fmaj7   G   C


VERSE 2: (play guitar riff for first half of the verse, then the chords)

I remember your old guitar,
I remember I Can't Explain,
I remember the way it looked around your neck,
And I remember the day it broke

F7   F     Fmaj7
       I remember the song you sang,
F7                            Fmaj7
       I remember the way you looked tonight,
F    Fmaj7   C                           Fmaj7   C    G   F7   F   Fmaj7
               And I remember the way it made me feel

CHORUS 2:

F7                      F            Fmaj7
   We'll try and try,     even if it lasts an hour,
F7                       F               Fmaj7
   With all our might,     we'll try and make it ours,
F7                            F                     Fmaj7
   'Cause we're on our way,     we're on our way to fall in love

G   Fmaj7

SOLO:

|A   F7   |A  C*  F7   |C   Fmaj7   |F   F7   |


CHORUS 3:

F7                       F            Fmaj7
   You'll try and try,     even if it lasts an hour,
C       Fmaj7            F   F7
   With all our might,          we'll try and make it ours,
Fmaj7                         G   F                     F7
      'Cause we're on our way,      we're on our way to fall in love
F7
   Yeah, we're on our way to fall in love, we're on our way to fall in love

OUTRO: (play guitar riff)

We're on our way to fall in love


Well, that's it! If you want to replace Fmaj7 with regular old C (x32010),
I think that works fine also.

Hope this helps.
