Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Shiny  Decemberists



[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] [D/F#] [F#m] 
[DaddE]By the [Dmaj7]bumper cars, [DaddE]in the [Dmaj7]pretty twining lig[D/F#]ht,     [F#m]          [D/F#]        [F#m]
I may have gone too far, I may have gone too much, too long, I'm a dull and witless boy

[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] [D/F#] [F#m] 
In the after bars, think I was sullied by a dream
In the killing jar, you and me at war at arms, all falling in embrace

[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] 
[F#]Tell [G#]me [A]why [B]you [C#]lied, and [Bm]what it is you [A]do to keep your [F#m/D]eyes all [E]shiny   [F#/D]       [F#m]

A tawny gypsy girl, sleeping blanketed by stars
Beneath the tilt-a-whirl, where we were coyly caught alone
All fumbling with your blouse

[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] 
Tell me why you lied, and what it is you do to keep your eyes all shiny

[E]  And in the rollercoaster [D]din
[E]  By the parachutes in [D]saddle shoes you break your shin
[E]  But I have never seen two [D]eyes so [D/F#]shiny [F#m]     [D/F#]      [F#m]

[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] [D/F#] [F#m] 
And the sullen beery swine
Try to tangle you in sullen beery balls of twine
Have they ever seen two eyes so shiny

The boys in denim vests, smoking cigarettes between
Their bootblack fingertips, sweetly tipsy by the half-light
The light and the half-light

[DaddE]       [Dmaj7]       [DaddE]       [Dmaj7]         [D/F#]      [F#m] 
Tell me why you lied and what it is you do to keep your eyes so shiny

[DaddE]Oh, shi[Dmaj7]ny... ([DaddE]repeat [Dmaj7]and fade)[D/F#]      [F#m]     [D/F#]      [F#m]

This is a such a beautiful song. Satisfying to play. :) (ps: I play it with capo on the 5th fret, but I sing high). The mp3 is on my site: www.supernaturalthings.net
