Alligator Sky  Owl City

::Alligator Sky by Owl City (Feat. Shawn Chrystopher)::
This is the first single off of Owl City's third album, All Things Bright And Beautiful.
This song makes me smile so much... so I decided to figure out some chords to it!
Considering the song's not really guitar based, it's an easy song to play, and you can
do it almost however you want.
Here're the chords I use:
[G] [D] [A] [Bm] [E] [B] [Cm]  
 
 E|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|
 A|--5----5----7----2----2----2----4---|
 D|--5----7----7----4----2----3----6---|
 G|--4----7----6----4----1----3----6---|
 B|--3----7----5----3----0----3----5---|
 e|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|

I personally like the feel of bar chords because they make me feel cool. :P But not
everyone has really long fingers like me, so it may not be as easy for you (not to mention,
it makes switching chords bundles harder). Go ahead and play open chords if you want
'cause honestly, it makes no difference.
You can just play the "regular" chords like this:
 
 G: 3-2-0-0-3-3-|
 D: x-x-0-2-3-2-|
 A: x-0-2-2-2-0-|

Yeah, much easier.
ANYWAY... Let's do this thang.
Where was [G]I when the r[D]ockets came to [A]life
And [Bm]carried you a[G]way into the a[D]lligator [A]sky
Even [G]though I'll never [D]know what's up a[A]head
I'm [Bm]never lettin' [G]go, I'm [D]never lettin' [A]go
Uh-uh, that's not a [G]plane--that's me
I'm [D]sittin' where I'm suppoused to
[A]Floatin' on a cloud, can't no[Bm]body come close to
[G] The concrete and the [D]sky switch places
So [A]now my ceiling is painted with [Bm]cosmic spaces
[G] Firecracker to the [D]moon, keep your eyes shut
[A]Blastin' off like a [Bm]rocket from the ground up
[G] Ha, I use to catch a [D]cab on a Monday
[A]Now the taxi's sellin' [Bm]lights on the runway
[G] Fly high, [D]condo on the Milky Way
[A]A house on the cloud, [Bm]God's my landlord
[G] And for my rent, all I [D]pay is my drive
Got [A]that, so if you need me you can [Bm]find me in the alligator sky
Where was [G]I when the r[D]ockets came to [A]life
And [Bm]carried you a[G]way into the a[D]lligator [A]sky (To the alligator sky)
Even [G]though I'll never [D]know what's up a[A]head
I'm [Bm]never lettin' [G]go, I'm [D]never lettin' [A]go
[A]Roller coaster through the [Bm]atmosphere
I'm [G]drowning in this [D]starry serenade
Where [A]ecstasy becomes [Bm]cavalier
My i[G]magination's [D]taking me away
[A]Reverie, whisper [Bm]in my ear
I'm [G]scared to death that I'll [D]never be afraid
[A]Roller coaster through the [Bm]atmosphere
My [G]imagination's [D]taking me away
[G] Uh, now I'mma [D]dance like I never dance
[A]Sing like I never sing, [Bm]dream like I've never dreamed
[G] Or try to, '[D]cause we've been lied to
[A]That the sun is somethin'[Bm] we can't fly to
[G] Well, I sit on my [D]star and see streetlights
[A]Look up, ha, you'll [Bm]miss me if you blink twice
[G] Imagi[D]nation is hot, and if you [A]got it, you can meet me
When you [Bm]see me in the alligator sky
Where was [G]I when the r[D]ockets came to [A]life
And [Bm]carried you a[G]way into the a[D]lligator [A]sky (To the alligator sky)
Even [G]though I'll never [D]know what's up a[A]head (I'll never know)
I'm [Bm]never lettin' [G]go (Never let go)
I'm [D]never lettin' [A]go
(Pause)
(Ha, Owl City!)
(Key change time! :P)
Where was [A]I when the r[E]ockets came to [B]life (Keep your eyes shut)
And [Cm]carried you a[A]way into the a[E]lligator [B]sky (Uh, like a rocket from the ground up)
Even [A]though I'll never [E]know what's up a[B]head (On the Milky Way, uh)
I'm [Cm]never lettin' [A]go (I'mma dream like I've never dreamed)
I'm [E]never lettin' [B]go
[A] In the [E]alligator [B]sky
(In the alligato[Cm]r sky)
[A] In the [E]alligator [B]sky
(Look up, you'll [Cm]miss me if you blink twice)
[A] In the [E]alligator [B]sky
(In the [Cm]alligator sky)
[A] In the [E]alligator [B]sky
You can end on E or let B ring or whatever.
And BAM!!
That's how I play it. Like I said before, this song's not guitar based, so if you think
you'd like to replace one of these chords with something you think sounds better, go
ahead! Give it your own 1-2-punch flavor! Nobody's gonna freak.
Well, have fun playing and singing along. Keep rocking!
