Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Infanta  Decemberists

Here she [E]comes in her palanquin on the back of an elephant
On a [F]bed made of linen and sequins and [E]silk

All astride on her father's line with the king and his concubines
And her [F]nurse with her pitchers of liquors and [E]milk

And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta
And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta

Among [E]five score pachyderm each canopied and passengered
Sit the [F]duke and the duchess's luscious young [E]girls
Within sight of the baronness seething spite for this live largesse
On her [F]side sits the baron, her barrenness [E]barbs her

And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta
And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta

(Interlude:)
[Am]   [Bb]   [F]                               
A [F]phalanx on camel back, thirty ranks on a forward tack
Followed [F#]close, their shiny bright standards are [F]waving

While behind in their coach in fours ride the wives of the king of bores
And the [F#]veiled young virgin, the prince's [F]betrothed

And we'll [G#]all come [D#]praise the [F]infanta
And we'll [G#]all come [D#]praise the [F]infanta

[E]And as she sits upon her [F]place
[E]Her innocence laid on her [F]face
[Bb]From all atop the parapets blow a [F]multitude of coronets
[Bb]Melodies rhapsodical and [F]fair
[Bb]And all our hearts afire, the [F]sky ablaze with cannonfire
We [E]all raise our voices to the [F]air
To the [E]air
And [E]above all this folderol on a bed made of chaparral
She is [F]laid, a coronal placed on her [E]brow
And the babe all in slumber dreams of a place filled with quiet streams
And a [F]lake where her cradle was pulled from the [E]water

And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta
And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta
And we'll [G]all come [D]praise the in[E]fanta

End:
[G]  [D]  [E]                                [G]  [D]  [E]
