We All Know  Devendra Banhart

We all know[G]    [Em]
That the wind blows[G]     [Em]
And the moon glows[G]     [Em]
And our lungs grow[G]     [Em]
[C]We belong to the floating hand
that's made by some animals,
And we all dance so[G]     [Em]
We can let go[G]     [Em]
And remove clothes[G]     [Em]
And trade lobes[G]     [Em]
[C]Like the type of tongue that roots from your breast
and it shakes your pretty little clavicle,
A good friend[G]     [Em]
Is walking[G]     [Em]
To a homeland[G]     [Em]
An inside land[G],    [Em]

And to him you can say
[C]Leave your eyes at the horizon's dead door cause you
won't need them anymore,
The children[G]     [Em]
Da da da di dum spend the dawning[G]     [Em]
Da da da di dum and the morning[G]     [Em]
Da da da di ra disappearing[G]     [Em]

[C]They reappeared as the seed of love
you know the [A7]earth births the vegetables[G],    [Em]
We all know[G] (x4)[Em]

Outro: (Enter horn section)
[G]Da dum da dum[Em] da da da... etc

The song mainly consists of the top progression
but at various times frequents the lower.

Attempted made as far as possible to correspond the chord
changes w/lyrics.
Fingerpicked/strummed (of course)
d= down strum
u= up stum
ux= up muffle (get the down up motion going but just slightly
release pressure on the upward movement to create the small muffle)

Transcribed by ear, all my own work.
Good Luck
