Least Complicated

Indigo Girls

---------------------------------

[Emily plays this in A with no capo; Amy plays it in G with a capo on
the second fret. Note that I wrote down Amy's chords, even though in
the intro, and in parts of the first verse and last verse, Amy doesn't
even play (that's why those chords are in parentheses). So, if you want
to play Emily's chords, transpose everything up a whole step. Emily's
picking pattern for the intro and first and last verse is at the end.]

[Each chord is half a measure.  I think Amy plays C/G as 3x2013.]
[You can play the melody in the mandolin parts by playing G7 (320001)
instead of G; use your index finger and pinky to find the melody.]

 GC/GGG
I sit two stories above the street

 GC/GGG
Oh I just sit up in the house and resist  
 GC/GGG
And not be seen until I cease to exist  
 Am7G/B
A kind of conscientious objection
 CDGC/GGG
   A kind of dodging the draft       

 GC/GGG
The boy and girl are holding hands on the street  
 GC/GGG
And I don't want to but I think you just wait  
 Am7G/B
It's more than just eye-to-eye
