Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

A Celebration Upon Completion  Bright Eyes

my grandf[C]ather's name was moon
because his e[C/B]yes were bright and round
and no a[G6]mount of time or liquor could dull t[C]hem

my grandmother's name was joy
because it s[C/B]pilled out of her heart
and b[G6]athed her precious children in its w[C]armth
and there was happiness in life beyond the s[C/B]orrow and the pain
but [G6]how they ever found it i cannot ex[C]plain
i guess t[F]ime has a way of making e[G]verything alright
it's just there is [Am]not enough of [C]it
and so we d[F]rink and we sing and we ce[G]lebrate this lie
and h[Am]ope that it will l[C]ast
F G C C C/B G6 C/g -->slide up 2 frets on B
morning is here night, has passed string & come back to C/g C
my grandf[C]ather was a doctor
he cured the s[C/B]ick with his kind hands
and he t[G6]aught me how to sail and how to find dry l[C]and

my grandmother was all sweetness
and when she s[C/B]poke we all heard bells
and they r[G6]ang in such a way that we were comfor[C]ted
and they held on to each other with [C/B]all of the strength they had
and they l[G6]oved with devotion be-yond what i underst[C]and
but i guess f[F]ear has a way of making s[G]leep unbearable
and the d[Am]ays seem cold and l[C]ong
but we’ll c[F]ry and we dance
C  (hit [G6]x32013 2 or            [Am]              [G6]
and we stumble into love in awkward, perfect grace 3 times)
the m[Fmaj7]oon is gone and the s[G6]un has took its plac[C]e    (last line 2x)
