Mountain Goats – Cotton tab

Intro: C - Gm - Dm - F

Verse 1:

   This song is for the rats

   Who hurled themselves into the ocean

          Dm                             F
When they saw that the explosives in the cargo hold

Were just about to blow

Verse 2:

This song is for the soil
That's toxic clear down to the bedrock
Where no thing of consequence can grow
Drop your seeds there, let them go


             Am*  C  F  Am
Let them all go

            C       F  Am
Let 'em all go

Verse 3:

This song is for the people
Who tell their families that they're sorry
For things they can't and won't feel sorry for

And once there was a desk
And now it's in a storage locker somewhere
And this song is for the stick pins and the cottons
I left in the top drawer

Interlude: C - F - Dm


Let 'em all go
Let 'em all go

Verse 4:

I wanna sing one for the cars
That are right now headed silent down the highway
And it's dark and there is nobody driving
And something has got to give

Verse 5:

I saw you waiting by the roadside
You didn't know that I was watching
Now you know
Let it all go


Let 'em all go
Let it all go
