Grapevine Fires  Death Cab for Cutie

This is someone else's tab just in an easier fingering.
The song is in Eb so any variation will work, but C shapes are the easiest in my opinion.

-Verse 1-

[Am] When the wind picked u[C]p the fire spread[G]
And the grapevines see[D]med left for dead[Am]
And the Northern sk[C]y looked like the end of days[G]
The end of days[Em]
[Am] The wake-up call [C]to a rented room[G]
Sounded like an al[D]arm of impending doom[Am]
C G (hold twice as long)
To warn us it's only a matter of time


Before we all [Am]burn[C] [G] [D]
Before we all [Am]burn[C] [G] [Em]
Before we all [Am]burn[C] [G] [D]
Am C G (hold G)
Before we all burn

-Verse 2-

[Am] We bought some [C]wine and some paper cups[G]
Near your daughters [D]school when we picked her up[Am]
And drove to a [C]cemetery on a hi[G]ll
On a hi[Em]ll
( Tab from: )
[Am] And we watched the pl[C]umes paint the sky gra[G]y
But she laughed and [C]danced through the field of grav[Am]es
And there I k[C]new it would be alrig[G]ht
That every[D]thing


Would be al[Bm]right[D] [A] [E]
Would be al[Bm]right[D] [A] [Fm]
Would be al[Bm]right[D] [A] [E]
Bm D A (hold A)
Would be alright


[B] And the news reports on the[C] radio
Said it was [G]getting worse[Am]
As the ocean [C]air fanned the flam[Em]es
[B] But I couldn't think
Of [C]anywhere I would of [G]rather been[Am]
To watch it [C]all burn aw[D]ay


To burn a[Am]way[C] [G] [D]
[Am] [C] [G] [Em]  
[Am]Am [C]C [G]G (hold G)[D]
[Am] [C] [G] [D]  
[Am] [C] [G] [Em]  
[Am]Am [C]C [G]G (hold G)[D]


[Am] And the firemen wo[C]rked in double shift[G]s
With prayers for [D]rain on their lip[Am]s
C G (fade)
And they knew it was only a matter of time
