Sufjan Stevens - Pittsfield

Tuning: Standard
Capo 10th


   G                     Em                     D/F#
   Cadd9      G           Em         D/F#

I'm not afraid of you now, I know
So I climb down from the bunk beds this slow, 
I can talk back to you now, I know
From a few things I learned from this TV show, 
You can work late till midnight, we don't care
We can fix our own meals, we can wash our own hair, 
I go to school before sunrise, in the cold
And I pulled the alarm, and I kicked up the salad bowls.

Then play these chords:
C          G       C        G         
Since that time we meant to say much more
Unsaid things begin to take their toll, 
After school we shovel through the snow
Drive upstate in silence in the cold, 

Cadd9     Em     D/F#   Cadd9
You can remind me of it
           Em            D/F#  Cadd9
That I was lazy and tired,
             Em       D/f#   Cadd9
You can work all your life as
         Em       D/F#     Cadd9  G  D/F# Cadd9  G  D/F#
I'm not afraid of you anymore

Back to verse:

If I loved you oh a long time, I don't know
If I can't recall the last time you told me so,
Here in this house in Pittsfield
The ghost of our grandmother works at the sewing machine post,
Hiding the bills in the kitchen, on the floor
And my sister lost her best friend in the Persian Gulf War, 
There was a flood in the bathroom last May
And you kicked at the pipes when it rattled oh the river it made.

C            G       C     G        C
Stand there, tell me that I'm of no use
Things unspoken break us if we share
There's still time to wash the kitchen floor
On your knees, the bath, the sink once more.
You can remind me, that I was tired
You can work late, and give yourself honor.
Now that I'm older, wiser and working less
I don't regret, having left the place a mess

Cadd9   Em       D/F# Cadd9         
You can remind me,    
           Em            D/F#  Cadd9
that I was lazy and tired
        Em           D/F#   Cadd9
You can recall your life as 
        Em         D/F#    C  G  C  G
I'm not afraid of you, anymore
     C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G  D/F#

Also it's wrong. Chords are right, progression is right, but precise notes are off. There is only one "double-pluck," at the beginning of each chord.

i THINK the first refrain should be more like this:

Em D/F# Cadd9 Em D/F# Cadd9 Em Am D/F#
I'm not afraid of you anymore
