A Baby for Pree  Neutral Milk Hotel


A Baby for Pree (Live at Jittery Joe's) - Jeff Mangum

I suggest finding someway to listen to this version before you try to play it. It would
difficult just off the chords alone.
This is the LIVE AT JITTERY JOE'S version of the song, NOT the one on On Avery Island.
NOTE: His guitar is tuned slightly sharp when playing this song, so if you try to play
the CD it will sound off. Even a capo on the first will be too sharp, you have to be just
sharp. A flat sharp, if that makes sense.
[C] [Em] [F] [Em] [C]  
[C] [Em] [F] [Em] [C]  
[C]Blistering Pree, all smiling and swollen[Em]
Makes [F]babies to breathe with their hearts hanging open[Em]
All [C]over the sheets as soft as beets in some brown [Em]dresser [F]drawer
[Em]And with [F]bees in her breath and the rest of her ringing[Em]
They'll [F]sting through her chest with a force hard and beating[Em]
Until [C]wonderfully wet she will get
Until she's soaked inside[Em] her [F]clothes
And there is no sorry to be sorry [E]for
For a roll around the [F]floor some afternoon so sound and soft[E]
It made her swallow all her [F]sweat with every bit of breath she [E]coughs
And when the day it came to [F]pour all her babies all across the bathroom [G]floor
She will be swimming in them all forev[C]er[C]mo[Em]re[F] [Em]
[C]Glow right [Em]into [F]you, I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you
And I let you [E]down
Swollen and [F]small is where you find me [E]now
With that silver stripping [F]off and my tongue you're tearing [E]out
And you'll never hear me [F]talk
[C]Glow right [Em]into [F]you, I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you
And I will be [E]strong, strong enough
To [F]shout above your voice that's blaring hard[E]
And your face that's falling [F]out into the dust of what you ar[E]e
[F] [G] [C] [C] [Em]  
[Em]And I will never hear you talk
[C]Glow right [Em]into [F]you, I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you I [Em]will [C]glow
Right [Em]into [F]you[E]
And with my little [F]finger[E]
I could make it all[F] crumble[E]
I could make it all[F] over[E]
Before y[F]ou would e[G]ven know
