Sleeping in the Flowers
by They Might Be Giants
Transcribed by Adam Lane
This doesn't sound totally right at parts, but it's a good guide. If you=
can come up with anything better for the chorus, please repost it. Also,=
I don't have time to figure out the solo. If there's any interest, maybe=
someone could post that too.
[Am] I got a [F]crush, [C] copy shop[E] clerk
Am F C(hit C chord and quickly mute)
But she won't look up at me
[Am] Don't want to be [F]known as the freak
C E Am(hit and mute)
Who just comes around to catch her eye
We could be [A]sleeping in the [D]flowers, We could [Bm]sleep all after[E]noon
You'd pro[C]claim that your an [F]island, I pro[Dm]claim that I'm one [E]too
A )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))=
[))))))))))))))))))))))))))D]Then we float into the harbor, With just pie[Bm]rs and boats arou[E]nd
C F )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))=
[))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))Dm]I declare that I am England, You declare that I have dro[E]wned
(This part is tough to show rythm as there are no words, but basically
the guitar just plays one note on the high E string)
 e5-5-5-55-55-5-55-5-5-5-55-55-5-5e This is the rythm I use with each =

dash or 5 Equals a sixteenth note
but I think you can figure it out
Then the bass does somthing like this:
 G-------------------0- ----------------0----G
 D---------------2--2-- ------------2--2-----D
 A---0---3---5--------- 0-0-3---5------------A
 E--------------------- ---------------------E

Repeat these figures twice, then back to the verse
[Am] I got a[F] ride,[C] home with a [E]drunk guy
Am F C(hit and mute)
How ungreatful I must have seemed
[Am] He showed [F]me how,[C] to spin my head [E]round and round
Chorus and interlude
Solo(Play the chords for the verse over the solo)
Chorus(Extend the chorus to fade with this...)
We could be [A]sleeping in the [D]flowers =
Tell my [Bm]boss that I've been [C]fired
We'll be [A]sleeping in the [D]flowers
tell my [Bm]boss i'm [C]fired
