Sky Blue Sky
Capo 5


G					Em/F#	 Em
Oh the band marched on in formation

The brass was phasing tunes i couldnt place
Cmaj7			Bm	  Em  
Windows open and raining in
Am				C/G				G
Maroon, yellow, blue, gold and gray

G				 Em/F#	Em
The drunks were ricocheting
Am			Am/G			 Am/F#			
Off the old buildings downtown empty so long ago
Cmaj7			 Bm			Em
Windows broken and dreaming
Am			  C				 G
So happy to leave what was my home
D7							Cdim
With a sky blue sky this rotten time 
Em						  Am
Wouldnt seem so bad to me now
D7				 Cdim
Oh I didnt die I should be satisfied
Em						Am
I survived, its good enough for now

G  Em/F#   Em  Am   Am/G  Am/F#   Cmaj7 Bm Em Am C/G  G


With a sky blue sky this rotten time 

Wouldnt seem so bad to me now

Oh if I didnt die I should be satisfied

I survived, its good enough for now

I think this lyric is correct "Oh the band marched on in formation"

 

But he definetly says "drunks" in the above posted audio clip from Milwaukee.

 

Though I just listened to the audio from the Zamboni Man and he says "drums" there.

 

"drums" obviously sounds more on subject. As we've seen with "What Light", I think Jeff substitutes lyrics alot.

 

I guess we'll have to wait for the album to see what "Official".

It is drunks. Maybe a reference to the little dive bar the Ricochet in Lincoln Square. Typical of Jeff to substitute sound alike words to bring a across different meaning or two.

 

Nice work on the Tab Kid!!!!

I kept the tab inside Capo 5 because it's easier that way and that's the way I hear Nels play it on the record. Hope you enjoy.

I assume this is all sans capo, ie 5=5th fret, and not 10th fret?

 

I realized I had most of it down, but in the wrong order. Thanks!
