An Animal in Your Care  Wolf Parade

Song: An Animal In Your Care
Artist: Wolf Parade
Album: At Mount Zoomer, Sub-Pop, 2008
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

All chords are barred, unless tabbed out (well, the E/Em's are open)
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Time after [E]time
You will for[G#m]give me
Like an [G]animal in your [B]care
But give it [E]time
You will out[G#m]live me
And take the [G]bow back you put in my [B]hair
Made a [E]parade of myself in the [G#m]street outside your house
For the [G]New York photographer [B]there
I fell for [E]crime and I fell for [G#m]beauty
I fell for [G]you because you're the only one that [B]cared
 
 ------------------------------------------

And when I [C]die
You can put on [G]costumes
In the [Em]style of the clothes I wore
And sing the [C]songs your lover [G]taught you
When you were too [Em]young to know that this was [E]what they were for.
[Over top of tbis la la la part a guitar comes in...]

La la la [C]la. La la la [G#m]la. lala[Em]la [x2... second time transition from Em to E]

[For this part, a second guitar picks around the chords played by the main
guitar, with a prominent picking of:
 
 e|---------|
 B|---------|
 G|--6-6-4--|
 D|---------|
 A|---------|
 E|---------|

Right at "toasts you made"]
Like some dead [E]relative
You will re[G#m]member me most by my [G]funeral
And all the [B]beautiful toasts you ma[E]de
Take back the [G#m]spade
We've both been [G]filling up our days like we were [B]filling in a grave
 
 ----------------------------

[PIANO INTERLUDE] 
Guitar 1 kinda starts scratching along near the end of this interlude
Then...
Guitar 1 End
 
 e|--------------------3-3-2-2--|
 B|--------------------3-3-3-3--|
 G|--4-4-4-4--7-7-7-7--0-0-2-2--|
 D|--------------------0-0-0-0--| x6
 A|--2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5--2-2------|
 E|--------------------3-3------|

Guitar 2 End
 
 e|--------------------------------|
 B|--/12---10---7-10-7-------------|
 G|--------------------7-7/9--7----| x9
 D|-----------------------------7--|
 A|--------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------|

It also sounds as if Guitar 2 slides down to 2 on the G
at the end of the riff sometimes, instead of playing the
A note on the D
Guitar 3 plays overtop on the 4th time Guitar 1 plays
There is some improvisation with the riff as Dan repeats it...
Guitar 3 End

 D|--------------------------------------------------------|
 A|--------------------------------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------------------------------|

End backing riff (this is then followed by chords, which are
marked with the lyrics):
 
 e|------------------------------|
 B|------------------------------|
 G|--4--4--4--4-4-6--7--7--7--7--|
 D|------------------------------|
 A|--2--2--2--2-2-4--5--5--5--5--|
 E|------------------------------|

[Riff] 
You let me hang, hang, hang around
[G] You put your [D]ribbons in my hair
[Riff] 
It's in this language that I found
