Pressed in a Book - The Shins
Tabbed by: getupkid203

Thought I'd tab my version of this song as I'm 99.99% sure that it's 100% correct haha.
The other tabs for this songs on this site are pretty darn accurate too I just think 
there's 1 or 2
chords out of place.

Tuning Standard E

Chords played in song:
(I like to use a variation of open and barred chords throughout the song).

Intro: E1 - D1 - E1 - D1 - E1 - D1 - E1 - D1 - E1 - D1 - A (let ring)

A               E2               C
  Doted on like seeds planted in rows
    G          D2           A
The untied shoelaces of your life
                 C#m                    E2
Nurtured all year then pressed in a book
      D         C#m               A
Or displayed in bad taste at the table
              E                    G
Problems arise and you fan the fire
                         D                         A
While there's a wild pack of dogs loose in your house tonight.
            C#m                    C
Cut from bad cloth or soiled like socks
                   D                     C2
Add it up and basically people never change.

                        G5           D1
They just talk and make plans in the dark
         C2                          G5
Or make haste with ideas that can't help
                  D1              C2
But creep good people out
                  G5   D1               C2
As you talk to me too much you're assuming
                G5          D1       E2 x3 counts then C#m x1 count.
We don't always want what's right.


A                  E2                                 C
  Did I strike the right set of chords? you're annoyed.
    G            D2             A
The goal is to ignite you then move on.
                    C#m               E2
You feel ill at ease. you got no squeeze.
              D                C#m            A
And the wise cracks won't make you more stable.
                            E2                    G
You've learned your lines to scale and to time.
             D2                         A
Why must I remind you now i'm only less able.
            C#m                   C
Cut from bad cloth or soiled like socks
                       D                            C2
We're ordinary people we can't help but to change

                    G5           D1
As we walk and make plans in the dark
            C2                           G5
Or make haste with the boy who can't help
                  D1               C2
But creep good people out.
                  G5   D1                C2
As you talk to me too much you're assuming
                G5          D1       E2 x3 counts then C#m x1 count.
We don't always want what's right.

A             E2                    G
   Two fallen saplings in an open field.
              D                    A
Snow padding gently on an empty bench.
                     E2                 G
An old woman's jewelry lying unadorned.
                     D                     A
Cold nesting robins allied for the first time.
                      E2                   G
I know when you hear these sappy lines
                         D                  C2
You'll roll your eyes and say "nice try".
