			                      A-Punk Acoustic - Vampire Weekend

Tabbed by: Rhys.J

Tuning: Standard 

I've tabbed this song out so all part of the song, 
including the chorus, can be played on guitar. 
It doesn't have to be on an acoustic, but sounds nice. 
I hope you enjoy  :)

Verse 1 Johanna drove slowly into the city The Hudson River all filled with snow She spied the ring on his honor’s finger Oh oh oh A thousand years in one piece of silver She took it from his lily white hand Showed no fear she’d seen the thing In the young men’s wing at Sloan-Kettering Chorus Look outside at the raincoats coming, say oh! His honor drove southward seeking exotica Down to the Pueblo huts of New Mexico Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas Oh oh oh Verse 2 I saw Johanna down in the subway She took an apartment in Washington Heights Half of the ring lies here with me But the other half’s at the bottom of the sea That's everything, e-mail me if you have any queries :) ************************************ | x mute note | h hammer-on | p pull-off ************************************
