Of Montreal – My Favorite Boxer chords

I saw another tab of this song and I spent 2 hours listening to the song and I noticed the author
got it parts of it incorrect Thanks for trying though, patrick. Following these chords should help
you sound just like the band. I think Kevin Barnes is about as good a songwriter as you 
can be, by the way!

"My Favorite Boxer"
-Written by Kevin Barnes
-Performed by of Montreal

In the beginning the guitar plays higher in the neck besides the barred chords in therest of the song.-The G minor F Ebm to Ao B Dm/A F7 F-7 Dm/Bb Eb/G Cm/Eb*e-10----------------6-8-10-8---8-------5----8---8------------------|b-11----------10----7-7-7-7----7---6---6---10---8----8----8------6-|g-12----------10----8-8-8-8----8---7---7----8---8----7----8------5-|d-12----------10---------------7---8---7---10--10----8----8------5-|a- -----------------------------------------8---8--------10------4-|*comes later in the song. I put it up here to save space.
Here are the lyrics with chords. The Bb to Dm/A is the only part that I am not totally convinced is correct, but I couldn't interpret that spot easily. ----------Chords------------ Hector Ormanos my favorite boxer
Gm F Ebm AdimHe goes smasho and Every one cheers
Bb Dm/A F7 Fm7 Bb
Dm/Bm F7 Fm7 FHe turns big men to whimpering cowards
Gm F Ebm AdimHes so strong and how I adore him.
Bb Dm/A F7 Fm7 Bb Dm/Bm F7 Fm7 F Change to Ab 2/4: But Im so weak.
Cm DbSo much so that Im afraid to walk alone down my street
Eb AbI know Ill never be as brave as Hector Ormano!
Cm/Eb Db (Same Chords as before) Hector Ormano is my favorite boxer His smile is so white like elephant ivory Hes so handsome and all of his girlfriends Are tall and blonde with hourglass curves (Same Chords As before) But I don't know many girls And I certainly dont know any girls like that Even if I did I wouldn't be as cool as Hector Ormano Change to Db 2/8(?): One summer day I was sitting on the bridge
Db Bbm Ab Gb AbLooking at the water below
Ab7 DbWhen I hear some laughter and a familiar voice
Db Ab Bbm Ab Gb AbComing from down the road.
Ab7 DbIt was then that I saw and my heart nearly dropped
Cm/Eb GbI saw Hector Ormano with some friends
Cm/Eb GbAnd as they approached my mind went blank
Ab GbAs I struggled to find the words
AbI was dying to tell him
Ab7 Db Ooh Bbm Fm Gb Ab->7 Db As Hector walked by he picked up a stick
Db Ab Bbm Ab Gb AbAnd threw it at my head
Ab7 DbHis friends went quiet and Hector said to me
Db Ab Bbm Ab Gb AbWhat are you looking at wimp?
DbBack to Bb 4/4:
Hector Ormanos my favorite boxer
Gm F Ebm AdimEven thought he was mean to me.
Bb Dm/A F7 Fm7 Bb
Dm/Bm F7 Fm7 FMy father thinks im a meaningless no one
Gm F Ebm AdimCompared to the perfect Hector Ormano
Bb Dm/A F7 Fm7 Bb
Dm/Bm F7 Fm7 FHum
Bb Dm/Bm F7 Fm7 F(Fin)
