Cmaj7  G (x2)

Cmaj7                                                  G
All my fingers ran off and I, I just couldn't follow them
Cmaj7                                                      G
Your eyelash was an island, and your eyes were someone's friend
                     Am            G
Who could there have been oh oh oh woh
                Am               G
Well i heard it was a real sweet thing
 Cmaj7
Now when my smells grew some more smells,
                               G
and I just couldn't smell them all la de da de da de dum
           Cmaj7                                     G
I smell my sister in the winter and my father in the fall
               Am            G
Cross sand and snow oh oh oh woh
        Am             G
A tired moon, oh oh oh who
         Am    G(single strum)
Oh oh oh who...

Words and music by Devendra Banhart
Transcribed by ear, all my own work (attempted as far as possible
to synchronise lyrics with actual music).
Good Luck
