In the Yard, Behind the Church  EELS


In the Yard Behind the church - Eels

Tabbed by: Anton Petersson 9/11-06
There are 6 chords that are repeated through the whole song.
C-G-Bb-F-G#-G and back to C
It's played on an organ. So if you play it on a piano the right hand plays the chords
 while the left hand plays the tunes: C-B-Bb-A-Ab-G-C

If you want to play it on guitar use the first chords
[C]in the yard, beh[G]ind the church where
[Bb]butterflies and bl[F]ackbirds search for
[G#]a safe place to [G]rest the night awa[C]y
[C]we will go down [G]to the brook and
[Bb]sit upon the [F]overlook then
[G#]forget about the tr[G]oubles of the [C]day
*Here comes the part with a sliding guitar or something*

we will walk among the graves of
men long dead with presidents' names and
listen to the water flow softly by
i will kiss you on the lips now
and as the sky grows dark we'll strip down
and let the water wash away all lies
 C-G-Bb-F-G#-G-C x2

in the yard, behind the church where
butterflies and blackbirds perch on
gray stones as the garden's growing dim
we will lay down on the ground and
put our cheeks against the dirt down
where it no longer matters
where you've been
 C-G-Bb-F-G#-G-C repeat to end.
