Simple Song by The Shins

Hey all, not sure about those bridge chords but I think it's pretty close. Listen to the 
song to get the strumming pattern for the D and A changes. If you want to listen to the 
song, check it out here: http://SimpleSong.TheShins.com



D		A	D		A
Well this is just a simple song

D		A	D		A
To say what you've done

D		A	D		A
I told you about all those fears

D			A	D
And the way they did run

		  A	        G
Your show must be strong


And you feel like an ocean

			       D	A D	A D
They'd want by the sun



D		A	D		A
When I was just 9 years old

D		A	D		A
I swear that I dreamt

D		A	D		A
Your face on a football field

D		A	D
And a kiss that I kept

	    A   G
Under my vest

							        D	A D
Apart from everything but the heart in my chest




Bm		  D				 G
I know that things can really get rough


When you go it alone

Bm           D			        G
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough


To play like a stone

Bm                         D			         G
Could be there's nothing else in our lives


So critical


As this little hole




D		A	D		A
My life in an upturned boat

D		A	D		A
Marooned on a cliff

D		A	D		A
You brought me a great big flood

D		A	D
And you gave me a lift

	     A	G
To care, what a gift


And you tell me with your tongue


And you're breath was in my lungs

				   Bm
And you float over the rift




		  D				 G
I know that things can really get rough


When you go it alone

Bm	       D                                   G
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough


To play like a stone

Bm			  D				G
Could be there's nothing else in our lives


So critical


As this little hole



*BRIDGE*
G-Bm-G-D
G-Bm-G-G




D		A	D		A
Well this'll be a simple song

D		A	D		A
To say what you've done

D		A	D		A
I told you about all those fears

D			A	D
And the way they did run

		      A	        G
Your show must be strong


And you feel like an ocean

			       D
They'd want by the sun





Bm		   D				     G
Remember walking a mile to your house


A glow in the dark

Bm	       D			      G
I made a fumbly play for your heart


And the extra, a spark

Bm		     D				     G
You're are a trauma, a chain that I stole


Especial for you

Bm		     D					G
Love's just a delicate thing that we'd do


We've nothing to prove

					D
Which I never knew

Fantastic! I just worked this out and came to post it, but you've done wonders!

Thanks! Though now I'm pretty sure that line is "That's warmed by the sun", not "They'd want by the sun".

As usual with Mercer, I've got no clue what his lyrics are! Eagerly awaiting the lyric book with the album :D I do agree with the warmed by the sun though. And I thought, based on his lack of pronouncing consonants, I assumed it was "you sure must be strong", and "girl, what a gift" at the upturned boat section. So glad you tabbed this first, I couldn't decide what to put for the lyrics!
