Album: Blueberry Boat
Transcribed by: Martin Mokran

   If you don't own this album already, BUY IT! They're one of the few bands today that 
tries something new, they could use the support.
-I'm certain of parts 1 and 3, but the second section of Part 2-"Up for shade on Crumb 
is a little odd. I'm not sure what chords to use to back it. If anyone figures it out 
me at and I'll correct it and give you props.
*the A might sound better barred, up to you

---------------------------Part 1--------------------------------------
C                  A
Came a card marked Mason City
F              C
From my forwarder.
C                    A
Shut the door, don’t let my dad see;
F                C
Read aloud dear sir:
F                                     G
Understanding you account an upright gent-
Bb                          C
lemen Aetna Life agreed and lent.
Bb                          G~
By the way, my fee is 2.6 percent.

C                A
Write again the Riceville widow
  F              C
  S -  A -  S -  E
C                                    A
I would guess they’ll be turned out though
F                    C
I’ll still make my plea:
         F                             G
If the Dunlay heirs cannot be seen to care,
         Bb                                   C
Then the Banker’s Trust will surely think it fair
         Bb                            G~
To not give extensions, as they musn’t dare.
*first solo* backing chords is an exact repeat of ^^^^^^
C                    A
Write Des Moines on several matters
      F      C
And I near anoint,
C               A
Ladle thick the pleasant flatters,
F                  C
And then comes the point;

     F                              G
Mr. Nelson wouldn’t like to hear it said
         Bb                           C
As he’s too proud, so I do it in his stead:
         Bb                       G~
He shall need an extension—so it read.

*This section I'm not sure on. I believe the song actually goes C#m-Cm-D, but the D is low, maybe you could drop the E string to D, but I don't feel like it. So I supplemented with F#, which sounds alright. By the way, power chords may be best for this part C#m Cm F# --Take the Oregon Short Line to Salt Lake; C#m take the Pere Marquette, take the Michigan Central, Cm F# to West Madison for Christ’s sake. C#m Forgemen, Molders, Blacksmiths, Boilermakers, Cm F# None on the make. *THE PART I DON'T KNOW :( Up for shade on Crumb Hill Get something to make my hands still. But now—Wait. -------------------------Part 3------------------------------------------ *begin playing A one meter A How are you my nabs? F# Little tender footed crabs, D A Meet my knuckle duster. A You geeched that gazoon’s gow F# Tried to break into the bow: D A Go wipe your nose. (A-G#-F#)- quick change, once each F#~ I’m just hanging out with some noler knockums, F Just passing time waiting till my stack comes. A Prussian who got jackered, F# My snapper till your knockered, D A Get on the snam. A The chivman wants your chip; F# Better dummy up then go dip: D A You’re outta turn. (A-G#-F#)quickly F# I learned that the lowest form of life is the buffer nabber, F Even worse than the dicer stabber. THEN COMES THE SOLO...which I didn't tab--just keep it in A and you're safe.
