A Celebration Upon Completion  Bright Eyes

Hey, I saw the chords for this song were incomplete, and I wanted to learn to play this
so I did it myself...the chords are 98% correct I‚??d say, towards the end I had a little
not the best at tabbing songs, but verse/chorus chords are perfect. Enjoy. -L. Martin
Bright Eyes - "A Celebration Upon Completion" standard tuning
Intro is basis of the song‚??s finger picking style....
C C/B G6 C (2x)
In between the chords C and C/B, and C/B and G6, there is a 3-1-0/1 figure on the B
that you should note should you want to play the song like Conor does on the album. I
have the time or knowledge on how to tab it, but I can definitely play it myself, sorry
I can‚??t help you there. Use your pinky hit the B string, 3rd fret while playing C and
chords, andafter a while , it should come along. Good Luck. Great song, by the way. thnx.
my grandf[C]ather's name was moon
because his e[C/B]yes were bright and round
and no a[G6]mount of time or liquor could dull t[C]hem
my grandmother's name was joy
because it s[C/B]pilled out of her heart
and b[G6]athed her precious children in its w[C]armth
and there was happiness in life beyond the s[C/B]orrow and the pain
but [G6]how they ever found it i cannot ex[C]plain
i guess t[F]ime has a way of making e[G]verything alright
it's just there is [Am]not enough of [C]it
and so we d[F]rink and we sing and we ce[G]lebrate this lie
and h[Am]ope that it will l[C]ast
F G C C C/B G6 C/g -->slide up 2 frets on B
morning is here night, has passed string & come back to C/g C
my grandf[C]ather was a doctor
he cured the s[C/B]ick with his kind hands
and he t[G6]aught me how to sail and how to find dry l[C]and
my grandmother was all sweetness
and when she s[C/B]poke we all heard bells
and they r[G6]ang in such a way that we were comfor[C]ted
and they held on to each other with [C/B]all of the strength they had
and they l[G6]oved with devotion be-yond what i underst[C]and
but i guess f[F]ear has a way of making s[G]leep unbearable
and the d[Am]ays seem cold and l[C]ong
but we‚??ll[F] cry and we dance
C (hit [G6]x32013 2 or[Am] [G6]
and we stumble into love in awkward, perfect grace 3 times)
the m[Fmaj7]oon is gone and the s[G6]un has took its plac[C]e (last line 2x)
