Arcade Fire – Goodnight Boy tab
Hey everyone. This is my first attempt at a tab, so, gather what you will from that. is a great song and it's a shame that you cannot find this tab anywhere. So here goes. free to update this as there are probably some things missing. I don't know if these the right chord voicings, but they sound ok, at least when you are playing on your own. This is in 3/4 Am X02210 Am/C X32210 D XX0232 G 320033 Bm X24432 Em 022000 C X30210 Gmaj7 xx0032 E 022100 Intro |Am |Am/C |D |D | The story I.. wrote as a kid..... |G |Bm |Em |Em | So yea... I felt so scared |Am |Am/C |D |D | Watching the flames crayon red... |D |D | |G |Bm |C |Bm This.... Kid.... Hung on me too |Am |D | So I had to hide in a |G |Bm |C |Bm Church...Just me..........and the town..mayor |Am |D | and his son who was handi- |G |Bm |Em |Em | capped who wouldn't be quiet... unless |Am |Am/C |D |D | his dad would sing him a.....song |G |Bm |Em |Em | So yea... It wasn't long before |Am |Am/C |D |D | they found out just where we were.... |D |D | But... |C |C |C |C | I wasn't mad...... at that kid at |G |G |G |G | All.... I just.. |C |C |C |C | Felt so sad....when his dad said... |G |GMaj7 |G |Gmaj7 Goodnight Boy..... Go to sleep Boy |E |Bm |E |E Shutup... Boy ....for me |G |GMaj7 |G |Gmaj7 Goodnight Boy..... Go to sleep Boy |G |GMaj7 |Em |Em Shutup....Boy.......for me He repeats the last 8 measures a few times and ends on G with "The troops rush in." There you go. When I play it alone on guitar I substitute a D/F# for the Gmaj7...It sounds better...he might actually play something different at that part, it's hard to tell the organ over it. Anyways, enjoy!
