Act of the Apostle  Belle and Sebastian

The notes in brackets are just notes, not chords. The G chord
before [F#-F-E] [D-E-D] is played very briefly before the notes come in.
It probably doesn't really matter if you play the G at all, but I think it's there.
I think this sounds best with the recording if you barre G and Cm, and mute the E
string in the Cm, if you're playing guitar, that is...
intro riff [D-F-D] [G] [G]x4 then [D-F-D]
[G]Morning prayers took the [Cm]girl unawares
She was [F]late for class and she [C]knew it
The [G]broadcaster had a [Cm]voice that was soothing
She [F]couldn‚??t tell if i[C]t was a man or wo-man
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
A patch of sun fell onto her neck
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
She put her head on her arms on her desk
The [G]lesson today was [Cm]Acts of Apostles
The [F]crazy hippies, they‚??r[C]e running scared
She [G]shut her eyes and [Cm]imagined the desert
No [F]cars, no mobiles, just [C]sun and bread
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
What would she look like standing by the well?
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
More like a women and less like a girl
[Bb]‚??Oh, if I could mak[Eb]e sense of it all!
I [Bb]wish that I could sing. I‚??d stay in a [Eb]melody
I would float along in my everlasting [Bb]song
Am [C-B] [C-B] D
What would I do to believe?‚??
intro notes again: [D-F-D] [G] [G]x4 then [D-F-D]
[G]Later on she plays [Cm]Morning Has Broken
She [F]knows she‚??s bad. She i[C]s slowing everbody down
The [G]choirmaster, [Cm]usually a bastard,
knows her [F]mother‚??s sick. He‚??ll[C] be nice to her.
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
She thinks that she shouldn‚??t be there at all
A C G [F#-F-E] [D-E-D]
Her worries make everything else seem trivial
[Bb]‚??Oh, if I could mak[Eb]e sense of it all!
I [Bb]wish that I could sing. I‚??d stay in a [Eb]melody
I would float along in my everlasting [Bb]song
Am [C-B] [C-B] D
What would I do to believe?‚??
Repeat A few more times: Am [C-B] [C-B] D
