Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans
Tab by Jon Dallas

This is an incredibly creepy song when played and sung correctly. In the recording, 
is playing a 4 string banjo, so the tuning for guitar is with the high e string tuned down 
a d.

The up side of playing this on the guitar instead of the banjo is that on the banjo, it 
very difficult to produce a lot of sound when strumming. With a guitar, however, it is 
to create a large sound when strumming.

Tuning - EADGBD

-Hope you enjoy

Lyrics: We didn't sleep too late. There was a fire in the yard. All of the tress were in light. They had no faces to show. I saw a sign in the sky: Seven swans, seven swans, seven swans. I heard a voice in my mind: "I will try, I will try, I will try. I will try, I will try, I will try." We saw the dragon move down. My father burned into coal. My mother saw it from far. She took her purse to the bed. I saw a sign in the sky: Seven horns, seven horns, seven horns. I heard a voice in my mind: "I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord." He said: "I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord." He said: "I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord."

If you are familiar to finger-picking, this is not a very difficult song at all. -Jon Dallas
