Challengers  The New Pornographers


New Pornographers - Challengers

Tabbed by: Stormx
Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)
UPDATE: Corrected to address some concerns!
B is defo Bm. Sorry for the initial mistake.
However, I can't hear the extra G that sheenabon talks of.
I went on youtube and checked some live performances... and my
tab seems correct in this respect!
The timing of the chords is a little tricky to pick up on.
Use barre chords on the verse but ordinary chords sound fine on choruses/other bits. I'm
100% on this tab, but I think correct.
Also, before a G, sometimes a D is played really quickly.
I've left this out, because it isn't totally necessary and you have to
listen kinda hard to notice, but add it in in your playing if you like.
[G] [A] [Bm] [A] [D]  
[G] [A] [Bm] [A] [D]  
[G]Yes I [A]know it was late
We were [Bm]greeting the sun
Be[A]fore [D]long
[G]And you [A]live with someone
I live with [Bm]somebody too
Leave [A]it [D]there
[A]For safe keeping[G]
One of the west village in [A]plains[G]
That was the custom
Come [D]dawn[G]
[G] [D]  
[G] [D]  
[G]On the [A]walls of the day
In the [Bm]shade of the sun
We [A]wrote [D]down
[G]Another [A]vision of us
We were the [Bm]challengers of
The [A]un[D]known
"Be [A]safe" you say[G]
Whatever the mess you are, you're [A]mine, okay[G]
If that is the custom
I'm [D]down[G]
[G] [D]  
[G] [D]  
(just G and D throught this bit...)
Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na
Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na...
[G] [A] [Bm] [A] [D]  
[G] [A] [Bm] [A] [D]  
[G]Until I [A]see you around
Until we [Bm]clear the accounts
Leave [A]it [D]there
[G]Leave [A]it to us
We are the [Bm]challengers of
The [A]un[D]known
[A]Oh-la, oh-la, [D]oh-la, oh-la[G]
[A]Oh-la, oh-la, [D]oh-la, oh-la[G]
