Okkervil River – A Stone tab
Tab written by Hamon Moravejzadeh. Okkervil River - A Stone Hey, everyone! This is the most accurate version (at least on this site) I've only written chords. Listen to the song to get the accurate strumming of the chords. Now it could be that when the Am comes that it can be a chord that is similar to Am. Maybe Am7/C6. Capo on 3rd fret G Hot breath, rough skin Cadd9 warm laughs, and smiling, Em the lovliest words D whispered and meant Cadd9 you like all these things. D But though you like all these things G you love a stone. Cadd9 You love a stone, D Am because it's smooth and it's cold. Em And you'd love most D to be told Cadd9 that it's all your own. G You love white veins, D you love hard grey, Am the heaviest weight, Cadd9 the clumsiest shape, Em the earthiest smell, D the hollowest tone Cadd9 you love a stone. Bridge: G D Am Cadd9 G And I'm found too fast, called too fond of flames, Cadd9 and then I'm phoning my friends, and then I'm shouldering the blame, Em while you're picking pebbles D out of the drain, Cadd9 miles ago. G You're out singing songs, and I'm down shouting names Cadd9 at the flickerless screen, going fucking insane. Em Am I losing my cool, D overstating my case? Cadd9 Well, baby what can I say? D You know I never claimed G that I was a stone. Cadd9 And you love a stone. G You love white veins, D you love hard grey, Am the heaviest weight, Cadd9 the clumsiest shape, Em the earthiest smell, D the hollowest tone Cadd9 you love a stone. Bridge: G D Am Cadd9 (x2) G Cadd9 You love a stone, D because it's dark Am and it's old Em and if it could start D being alive Cadd9 you'd stop living alone. (quieter, don't strum as much) G And I think I believe D that if stones could dream Am they'd dream of being laid Cadd9 side-by-side piece-by-piece Em and turned into a castle D for some towering queen Cadd9 they're unable to know. G And when that queen's daughter D came of age, Am I think she'd be lovely Cadd9 and stubborn and brave, Em and suitors would journey D from kingdoms away Cadd9 just to make themselves known. G And I think that I know D the bitter dismay Am of a lover who brought Cadd9 fresh brouquets every day Em when she turned him away D to remember some knave Cadd9 who once gave just one rose, one day, years ago. The end: G D Am Cadd9 X4 G
