Blue Ridge Mountains

Fleet Foxes

 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
 Light   up.               
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
Un------der   stormy  night, tell     no-----body. 

 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13Dm7(a

~*~
Then things speed up for the verse and continue the same Dm chord pattern
~*~

**VERSE 1**

Dm7(a) Dm13 Dm7(b) Dm13 x2

My brother where do you intend to go tonight?
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
 I heard that you missed your connecting flight,     
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
To the blue ridge mountains, over near Tennessee.
 Gm7
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
**VERSE 2**

You're ever welcome with me any time you like,
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
 Let's drive to the country side, leave behind some green-eyed look-a-likes,
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13Gm7
So no one gets worried, no.                                    
 Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
So no one gets worried, no.                        
 Gm7Dm7(aDm13Dm7(bDm13
**INTERLUDE**

But Sean don't get callous,
 Gm7Dm7
I'm sure it'll be fine.
 Gm7Dm7
I love you, I love you,
 Cadd9Bb
Oh brother of mine.
 Am11
~*~
Then a Bb chord is strummed for awhile while the piano and mandolin do their
thing
~*~

**REFRAIN**

In the quivering forest,
 Bb
Where the shivering dog rests,
 Cadd9
I will do it grandfather,
 Bb
Wilt to wood and end.
 FM13
And the river got frozen,
 Bb
And the hole got snowed in,
 Cadd9
And near the moon glow ride,
 Bb
Till the morning light.
 FM13

Terrible am I child?
 BbCadd9
 Even if you don't mind,
 BbCadd9
 In the quivering forest,
 Bb
Where the shivering dog rests,
 Cadd9
I will do it grandfather,
 Bb
Wilt to wood and end.
 FM13
And the river got frozen,
 Bb
And the hole got snowed in,
 Cadd9
And near the moon glow ride,
 Bb
Till the morning light.
 FM13
Terrible am I child?
 BbCadd9
 Even if you don't mind,
 BbCadd9
 No                   
 BbCadd9
~*~
Then it plays the slow intro again
~*~

And that's it! Definitely not your typical folk song, but once you get over
the weird chords it's not too hard. Good luck! This took a lot of work, so
you best appreciate it! It's a beautiful song (as all of Fleet Foxes' songs
are) and is very fun to play once you get it down.
