 Song: Alligator Sky
 Artist: Owl City
=================================

Hi!
This song's not really guitar based so it's an easy song to play, and you can do 
it almost however you want.

So, here're the chords I use:

    G    D    A    Bm   E    B   C#m
E|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|
A|--5----5----7----2----2----2----4---|
D|--5----7----7----4----2----3----6---|
G|--4----7----6----4----1----3----6---|
B|--3----7----5----3----0----3----5---|
e|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|

I personally like the feel of bar chords because they make me feel cool. :P But 
not everyone has really long fingers like me, so it may not be as easy for you 
(not to mention, it makes switching chords bundles harder). Go ahead and play open 
chords if you want 'cause honestly, it makes no difference.

You can just play the "regular" (Open) chords like this:

G: 3-2-0-0-3-3-|
D: x-x-0-2-3-2-|
A: x-0-2-2-2-0-|

Yeah, much easier.

ANYWAY... Let's do this thang.



          G           D              A
Where was I when the rockets came to life
    Bm           G             D        A
And carried you away into the alligator sky
     G                 D               A
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
    Bm            G       D             A
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go


            G                               D
Remember to breathe, 'cause it'll take your breath away
         A                 Bm
When the engines cough and you blast off
G                       D              A
Ignite the night with a firecracker flash

            G                            D
Remember to live, 'cause you're gonna be thrilled to death
         A                      Bm
When the stars collide and your eyes grow wide
G                    D                  A
Take it in with your breath against the glass

            G                             D
Remember to dream, 'cause it's gonna be a starry night
     A             Bm
Over every town as you look down
G                     D             A
So harmonize with the singing satellites

            G                              D
Remember to scream, 'cause you're gonna be lost for words
         A                     Bm
When the sparks erupt and they light you up
G                    D                   A                  Bm
Dip your toes in the galaxy, 'cause it's yours to explore tonight


          G           D              A
Where was I when the rockets came to life
    Bm           G             D        A
And carried you away into the alligator sky (To the alligator sky)
     G                 D               A
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
    Bm            G       D             A
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go


A                          Bm
Roller coaster through the atmosphere
    G                D
I'm drowning in this starry serenade
      A               Bm
Where ecstasy becomes cavalier
    G            D
My imagination's taking me away
A                Bm
Reverie, whisper in my ear
    G                         D
I'm scared to death that I'll never be afraid
A                          Bm
Roller coaster through the atmosphere
   G             D
My imagination's taking me away


G                      D
 Let's hear it for the universe
         A                   Bm
Where it never hurts, diving in head-first
G                   D              A
Take a taste of the melting Milky Way

                G                                D
And remember to laugh, 'cause you're livin' in a crazy world
             A                      Bm
Where you'll never guess what could happen next
G                     D             A                 Bm
Give the outer limits my regards as you float to fly away

          G           D              A
Where was I when the rockets came to life
    Bm           G             D        A
And carried you away into the alligator sky
     G                 D               A
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
    Bm            G
I'm never lettin' go
    D             A
I'm never lettin' go

[Pause]

[Key change time! :P]

          A           E              B
Where was I when the rockets came to life
    C#m          A             E        B
And carried you away into the alligator sky
     A                 E               B
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
    C#m           A
I'm never lettin' go
    E             B
I'm never lettin' go


A        E         B     C#m
  In the alligator sky
A        E         B     C#m
  In the alligator sky


A - E - B - C#m


A        E         B
  In the alligator sky


You can end on E or let B ring or whatever.
And BAM!!
That's how I play it. Like I said before, this song's not guitar based, so if you think
you'd like to replace one of these chords with something you think sounds better, go
ahead! Give it your own 1-2-punch flavor!

Well, have fun playing and singing along. Keep rocking!
