Decemberists - Shiny tab


Artist: The Decemberists
Song: Shiny
Album: 5 Songs [EP]
Tuning: Standard EADGBe
Notes: Capo on 2nd Fret

This is a fairly easy song to play,
but uses some rather uncommon chords,
complete with long and weird names.
My advise would be to not be thrown
by the odd chords, but just to learn
the shapes of them, where they fit
into the song and keep at it :)
Here are all the chords used in the
song:

~ Introduction: Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em Verse 1: Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em by the bumper cars, in the pretty twining light, Cadd9 Cmaj7 i may have gone too far, Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 i may have gone too much, too long. Em G Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em i'm a dull and witless boy. Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em in the after bars, think i was sullied by a dream. Cadd9 Cmaj7 in the killing jar, Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 you and me at war at arms Em G Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em all falling in embrace. Em D/F G Am B7 tell me why you lied Em D Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 and what it is you do to keep your eyes, Em9/D Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em all shiny Cadd9 Cmaj7 a tawny gypsy girl Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em sleeping blanketed by stars Cadd9 Cmaj7 'neath the tilt-a-whirl Cadd9 Cmaj7 Bm where we were coyly caught alone Em G Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em all fumbling with your blouse Em D/F G Am B7 tell me why you lied Em D Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 and what it is you do to keep your eyes, Em9/D all shiny D C and in the rollercoaster din D C Em by the parachutes in saddle shoes you break your shin D C B5 Em B5 Em but i have never seen two eyes so shiny Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em D C and the sullen beery swine D C Em try to tangle you in sullen beery balls of twine D C B5 Em B5 Em have they ever seen two eyes so shiny? Cadd 9 Cmaj7 the boys in denim vests Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em smoking cigarettes between Cadd9 Cmaj7 their bootblack fingertips Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em sweetly tipsy by the half-light G Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em the light and the half-light Em D/F# G Am B7 tell me why you lied Em D Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 and what it is you do to keep your eyes, Em9/D all shiny, all shiny The rest of the song is the norman verse chord sequence "Cadd9 Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 B5 Em B5 Em" Over Colin singing "All shiny" repeatedly. The song then finishes with: Em D/F G Am B7 Thanks for reading and enjoy playing :)
