Mountain Goats – Oceanographers Choice chords

Most of the credit for this goes to lostpanda, who posted Version 1, and poisonpancake, 
who transposed the chords for use with a capo.  I am merely re-writing these for 
everyone's ease of use.

***** CAPO 3 *****

EmWell, guy in a skeleton costume
G CComes up to the guy in the Superman suit
EmRuns through him with a broadsword
I flipped the television off
G CBring all the bright lights up
EmTurn the radio up loud
A I don't know why I'm so persuaded
D That if I think things through
CLong enough and hard enough
B I'll somehow get to you
EmBut then you came in and we locked eyes
AYou kicked the ashtray over as we came toward each other
CStubbed my cigarette out against the west wall
B And quickly lit another
EmLook at that
Would you look at that?
A We're throwing off sparks
Em D A EmWhat will I do when I don't have you
B EmTo hold onto in the dark?
EmYes, everybody's gonna need a witness
G CEverybody's gonna need a little back up
EmIn case the scene gets nasty
You throw the attic window open
G CAnd I throw myself all around you
EmAnd night comes to Tallahassee
C F I don't know why it's gotten harder to keep myself away
CThought I'd finally beat the feeling back
B It all came back today
EmAnd then we fell down and we locked arms
AWe knocked the dresser over as we rolled across the floor
C I don't mean it when I tell you
B That I don't love you anymore
EmLook at that
Would you look at that?
AThe way the ceiling starts to swerve
Em D A EmWhat will I do when I don't have you
BWhen I finally get what I deserve?
Em till the end (bass changes chords, but I think the guitar part plays just the one chord).
