"Not a Robot, But a Ghost"
by Andrew Bird
Album- Noble Beast (2009)

This song has a lot of tricky timing, a key change or two, strange section lengths, etc... 
so listen closely to the song to hear all of that, because I've only given you the basics here. 
Additionally, some parts are based more on the movement of different complex instrumental and 
melodic lines than simple chords, so a few chord sections here are simply loose representations. 
Feel free to correct them if you find a better fit.

Bathroom       stalls,     there's
F#maj7   G#    C#
Something      burning,    it
