I'm pretty sure the chords are 100% accurate, but I don't know the correct
names. The exact guitar melody that plays through the entire song is a 
slightly simplified version of what Conor plays. Listen to the song for
timing. Kind of a weird song structure with different chord patterns all
over the place. Beautiful song though. Oh and first tab so go easy ;)



These are some of of the less obvious chords.

Intro (No instruments) In the center of the city was a statue and her twin And together they watched over everything Oh, they saw me when I stumbled and they watched you help me stand I'd swear Cecilia and her sister had it all planned Tabbed by: Brandon Peralta [tabster9000] Email: michaeljamesblake@hotmail.com Then one morning I was walking, from my window to your door Well I nearly hit the ground with what I saw Cecilia had been broken, while her sister had been spared And the vandals had scattered the pieces everywhere
This is the kind of finger pick to do throughout the songC|-----------------------------------------------||------1--------1--------1--------1-------------||------0--------0--------0--------0-------------||------2--------2--------2--------2-------------||----3--------3--------3--------3---------------||---------0-3------0-3------0-3------0-3--------|

Verse A (Guitar enters here, Strum once for the first Verse):
FM C AM FMAnd I knew it made me wonder what kind of twisted mind
C AM FMWould ever hurt her, so thoughtless and unkind
C AM FM7But a monster so cruel can't be that hard to find
FMBoys
Verse B:
C So I started wearing warpaint and I gathered all my friends
AM CFor Cecilia we'd be hunters 'till the end
She was built for a perfect picture, but she came to represent
AM CThough I guess I never understood exactly what it meant
Verse A:
FM C AM FMOh I know Cecilia and her sister were just statues made of stone
C AM FMBut I still missed her and now her sister's all alone
CNo that just won't do!
AM FM7So let's raid the vandal's homes
FMBoys
Verse C:
CSo we ventured out at sunrise
AMWith our torches and our spears
CAnd our shotguns and our fears
AMAnd our carefully hidden tears
CFor Cecilia, Cecilia
Verse A:
FM CNow I'm thinking of the moment
AM FMWhen we can look them in the eye
C AM FMAnd make them sorry, 'cause tonight they're gonna die
CYeah, we'll shoot them up dead!
AM FM7Leave their bodies where they lie
FMBoys
Verse D:
CSo now we're following the pieces of Cecilia to the door
AM CEvery shattered limb repeatedly reminding us of what we're searching for
And the sleepers have woken for now they have an aim
AM CYes they're quite aware of the cold hard fact that the city's loss could be their gain
Verse A:
FM CThey are dreaming of, the feeling of!
AM FM C AM FMA trophy in their arms, a hero's welcome, claiming women with their charms
C AM FM7Oh I'm sorry if I hurt you, you know I swear I meant no harm
FMBaby
Verse E:
C EM7 AM CM7So the trail, it keeps on turning as we wander through the streets
FM C EM7 FM I keep looking at, the pieces of Cecilia at my feet
CBut the strangest thing occurs to me
When I stop to look around
AM COh I'd swear we are returning to the center of the town!
Verse A (Strum once for last verse.):
FM CYes we're back here, where we started
AM FM CWhere Cecilia used to stand, but her sister looks different
AM FMPlease, tell me boys, if you can?
CIs that a smile on her face?
AM FM7Is that a hammer in her hand?
