Young Fathers  Typhoon

Verses are played in this special rhythm:
|G G |C C |e|G G |C|e C |
[G]I was born in Sept[C]ember
and like everything [Em]else, I can't rem[G]ember
I replace it with s[C]cenes from a f[Em]ilm that I will never m[C]ake
[G]When I blinked it was o[C]ver
I was thinking my l[Em]ife will get s[G]lower
That I will sort this sh*t [C]out when I'm s[Em]ober
It's e[C]ven better now that you're older
[G]I read the scares on the f[C]ront page
It says we're waiting a[Em]round for an i[G]ce age
It says our comforts they c[C]ome with a price [Em]tag
They ki[C]lled the cancer but disc[G]overed a new plague
* no guitar (if you play alone, sounds better with guitar or any ideas?)
[G]*They said just think of the [C]children
*and imagine the w[Em]orld that we've w[G]illed them
*It's populated with w[C]eirdos to [Em]kill them
*and break their hearts
And [C]everybody knows[G]
This is the end[C]
It's now a fashionable, [Em]oh [G]oh
dinner party convers[C]ation[Em] [C]
There are several ways to play this part, here is one:
|D* |C9* G |D* |C9*|

Now I'm as old as you were when you had me
Should I be afraid? Should I start a family?
I'd raise them in the wild 'cuz up against the city
My love is such a small thing
Interlude (picked):
| G | C | e -

|G G |C C |e|G G |C|e C |
[G]When you're young you're hot[C]
You have your whole life be[Em]fore you
Every[G]one will adore
You'll grow up, you'll be an astron[C]aut[Em]
or a[C]nything you want.[G]
[G]What goes up goes up in f[C]lames
and now your choices surro[Em]und you
and dec[G]ision confounds you
and you're pacing around in place[C] [Em]
Shows you e[C]verything you're not
* no guitar (if you play alone, sounds better with guitar)
*And in a brief, little romance
*you've committed a soul without its consent
*Delivered life as a form without its content
because young people get [G]bo-o-o-ored everyd[C]ay
yeah young people, young p[Em]eople get [G]bo-o-o-ored[C] [Em] [C]
There are several ways to play this part, here is one:
|D |C9* G9 |D** |C9*|

Never went to church
thought a song was gonna save me
so I wrote a hymn on the guitar that you gave me
Singing what you spoke I built a fire with the smoke
You know that hope is just a small thing
(picked) (In original there's same melody as before continuing on other chords,
but I just play alternating bass-string and rest-strings like he plays in some live versions)
| G | C/G | Em G | C/G F#m7 |
[G]I just called to tell you
[C]I just called to say
[Em]Learned all [G]your mistakes
[C]You were my [F#m7]inspiration
[G]And it wasn't all we hoped for
[C]But we shake it off and we say
[Em]Here's your y[G]ellow ribbon
[C]I am your c[F#m7]onsolation
| G | C/G | Em G | C/G F#m7 |
| Em | C/G | F#m7 C/G |
[G]I was born in September
[C]and if I die today
[Em]just know I d[G]on't regret you
[C]some things I [F#m7]can explain (like)
[Em]It's a slow descent
[C]It's a lifeless place
[F#m7]Every g[C]od damned day
[G]and I know you know
[C]no matter where you go[Em] [G]
that I will foll[C]ow[F#m7], that I will follow
[Em]You are my only hope
[C]It's not much, but it's [F#m7]all that I kno[C]w
Here's how it goes
(strum on muted strings, beside first beat of every chord)
[G]* I just called to tell you
[C]* I just called to say
[Em]* Learned all [G]your mistakes
[C]* Passed down through [F#m7]generations
