Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Red  Okkervil River

[F]Am[-]- [133211]X02210

Chords in parentheses are over really long drawn out vowels,
so instead of writing "baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar" and trying to
space out the chords over them, I just clumped them together
in parentheses. The rhythm shouldn't be hard to figure out for
these sections because it usually follows the same pattern as
similar parts of the song.

Intro:
[G]      [FG]                               

R[C]ed is my f[G]avorite c[F]olor

Red like your [Am]mother's eyes [C]after awh[G]ile
Of cr[C]ying about h[G]ow you don't l[F]ove her
She says, "[Am]I know I don't deserve
S[C]upervised sight of her
But [G]each day becomes a blur without my [F]dau[G]gh[Am]ter[FG]"
F[C]all is my f[G]avorite s[F]eason
Like falling to r[Am]easoning why you cr[C]ashed from on h[G]igh
She says, "Wh[C]y is my l[G]ife so un[F]even
[Am]And what have I done right
B[C]ut given you your life
If [G]after I let you on into that [FG]bar r[Am]oom... into that b[F]ar r[G]oom?"
Interlude:
[G]      [FG]                               

"Y[C]es" is my f[G]avorite a[F]nswer

I took a d[Am]ancer home, she f[C]elt so al[G]one
We st[C]ayed up all n[G]ight in the k[F]itchen
Doing my d[Am]ishes, on and [C]on until the d[G]awn
She said, "[C]I know that it's [G]easy to h[F]ave me
B[Am]ut I have seen some things
Th[G]at I cannot even t[C]ell to my f[G]amily p[F]ictures
And I'm full of f[C]ictions and fucking add[G]ictions
And I miss my m[C]other"
Second Interlude*:
[C]  [C9]   [C]  [C9]                              
*The rhythm here is difficult to explain from the chords alone;
basically he switches between C and C9 for twelve measures. You
can hear it especially well from the left speaker.


She'll never kn[C]ow I could n[G]ever forg[F]et her
If I could write her a l[Am]etter, I'd try w[C]ith every l[G]ine
To say, "Sh[C]e still rem[G]embers your to[F]uch
And I kn[Am]ow that it's not m[G]uch
I kn[C]ow that [F]it's not m[G]uch
I kn[Am]ow that it's not m[G]uch
But you still haven't l[C]ost her
[C]You[G] s[F]ti[C]ll[G] h[G]av[G]en[G]'t lost her
[C]You[G] s[F]ti[C]ll[G] h[G]av[G]en[G]'t lost her
[C]You[G] s[F]ti[C]ll[C] h[G]av[F]en[C]'t[C] l[G]os[F]t [C]her
Not y[G]et"
