Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes


** The song is recorded with a guitar tuned down a half-step to Eb**
		(Eb Ab Db Gb C Eb)

(palm-muted) E x16

**Verse 1**

EI was raised up believing
AI was somehow unique
BLike a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
A EUnique in each way you can see
EAnd now after some thinking
AI'd say I'd rather be
BA functioning cog in some great machinery
A EServing something beyond me
**Chorus** (begin strumming)
E ABut I don't, I don't know what that will be
E A EI'll get back to you someday soon you will see
**Verse 2**
EWhat's my name, what's my station
AOh just tell me what I should do
BI don't need to be kind to the armies of night
A EThat would do such injustice to you
EOr bow down and be grateful
AAnd say "Sure take all that you see"
BTo the men who move only in dimly-lit halls
A EAnd determine my future for me
**Chorus** (with vigor)
E AAnd I don't, I don't know who to believe
E A EI'll get back to you someday soon you will see
**Verse 3** (with subdued enthusiasm / palm-mute)
EIf I know only one thing
AIt's that every thing that I see
BOf the world outside is so inconceivable
A EOften I barely can speak
EYeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
AAnd I can't keep it to myself
BWhat good is it to sing helplessness blues?
A EWhy should I wait for anyone else?
**Chorus** (With renewed intensity)
E AAnd I know, I know you will keep me on the shelf
E A EI'll come back to you someday soon myyyy--self
**Awesome** E x6
Amaj7If I had an orchard
E F#mI'd work till I'm raw
E If i had an orchard
(C#m) Amaj7I'd work till I'm sore
E AAnd you would wait tables
E Amaj7And soon run the store
E Amaj7Gold hair in the sunlight
E Amaj7 F#mMy light in the dawn
E If I had an orchard
(C#m) Amaj7I'd work till I'm sore
E AIf I had an orchard
E Amaj7I'd work till I'm sore
E Amaj7OoooooOOOhhhh
E F#mOoooooOOOhhhh
E AOohhhhhhoooOOOOhoooohhhh
E ASomeday I'll be
E A ELike the man on the screen
**FIN**
