It's Only Divine Right
The New Pornographers
from The Electric Version (2003)
Lyrics from http://www.thenewpornographers.com/

[Note:  there's some lead-stuff going on in the song during
the parts that go from A to C# that is not reflected here.
People with better ears that I have can figure it out.  Send
all corrections to bworlow@yahoo.com.  Enjoy.]

Intro:  C#  F#  x4

C#		   F#
Both eyes drinking cool water,

	A		    G#
Not the first daughter so I can't see 

	   C#			    F#
Why you're wrestling with words at last,

     C#			   F#
A tradition you've long outclassed. 

C#		  F#
Come true for the new martyrs, 

	  A		       G#
With your hair parted like the Red Sea. 

	 C#				F#
You're addressing the world from your bed, 

     C#				A     E
All alone in the crowd like you said. 

     F#		       C#
Come true, it's only divine right.

     F#		       C#
Come true, it's only divine right. 

C#   A   F#  x2

C#		   F#
Here's Leda in her white glory, 

	A		    G#
All her back-story has been wiped clean. 

      C#		 F#
Just another apocryphal mess, 

      C#		     F#
Never promised 'em anything less. 

C#			F#
So come true, these are safe waters 

	A		    G#
For the first daughter, so I can't see 

	   C#				F#
Why you're pushing the pull that you've had, 

     	  C#			A   E
While the rest of the girls go bad. 

      F#	       C#
Come true, it's only divine right. 

     F#		       C#
Come true, it's only divine right.

C#   A   F#  x2

A  C#  x2

C#	  F#
Slip back through the plot 

	B		    G#
For the new shock, seeing us then, 

		 F#	G#
When we were the real people, 

	    F#	  G#
We were the real people.

C#	  F#
Slip back through the plot 

	B		    G#
For the new shock, seeing us then, 

		 F#	G#
When we were the real people, 

	    F#	  G#
We were the real people.

C#  F#  x4

C#		F#
Face down in the old money, 

	A			  G#
Left the crowd wondering what your next move's 

      C#		 F#
Gonna be in the moments ahead, 

	  C#			A   E
While the rest of the girls go bad. 

      F#	       C#
Come true, it's only divine right.

      F#	       C#
Come true, it's only divine right.

C#   A   F#  x2

A  C#  x2

C#	  F#
Slip back through the plot 

	B		    G#
For the new shock, seeing us then, 

		 F#	G#
When we were the real people, 

	    F#	  G#
We were the real people.

C#	  F#
Slip back through the plot 

	B		    G#
For the new shock, seeing us then, 

		 F#	G#
When we were the real people, 

	    F#	  G#
We were the real people.

A   C#  [repeat several times]

perfect :D
i love how T.N.P. used all major chords in their old material. it's what makes it so catchy, i think. and it really fits their like, happy, bouncy style. whatever they do i love it.
and this tab is so close to being perfect!!! but its so hard to read, try putting more chords on one line, if its possible. it'd mean less stopping and adjusting the auto-scroll thingy.

beautiful, though. :D

that A C# riff goes kinda like this

|------------|------------|-----------|
|------------|------------|-2~~~~~~~~~|
|------------|-------2-1--|-----------|
|------------|-4-2--------|-----------|
|-4-2---6-4--|------------|-----------|
|------------|------------|-----------|

i think that sounds right. you might need to add some fifths or fourth in there to get that power chord raunchy sound but it sounds close enough for me and my shitty one man cover of it... play around with it, see if you can get it to work?

I want to post or [tab]
