Andrew Bird - MX Missles

If you're a play along with the track kind of person, this will disappoint you.  
It's a standalone version that's easy to play.

Seen Andrew play F#7 like this for MX Missles:

And plays most bar chords on those four high strings.  The album version has the capo
way up but all live versions are without.

Bm  F#  Bm  F#  G  D  F#  G  G  D  G  D  E  A  F#

those that will judge will say you're aloof  
Bm                                                   E
but you know the truth is a seed you know what you need  
              A      F#7
is a conflagration  
cause when I see your blood and the bits of your broken tooth  
    Bm                                                    E
it gives me the proof that I need it's the proof that you bleed  
               A                         D                     F#7  F#  
and it's a revelation / yeah it's a revelation / it's a revelation 

 D                   G      Bm   A
I thought you were a life-sized paper doll 
 D                G     Bm   A        
propped up in the hardware store  
 D                G     Bm    A
propped up on the front lawn watching the parade  
         D                 G   Bm  A
of those legionnaires with two by fours  
                            Bm   E  
As they're marching off to wars  
                              A     F#7
Yeah they're marching off to wars 

Bm                            F#7  
I didn't know what you were made of  
Bm                                 F#7
color of your blood what you're afraid of  
G                           D
are you made of calcium or are you carbon based 
                 F#                    G
cause if you're made of calcium I'll have to take a taste  
               G                       D
'Cause listen, calcium is deadly, but tender to the tooth  
              G                               D
but it's one sure-fire way to know if you're mx-missile proof  
   E                          A     A7 
oh no, or if you're just aloof
Bm                                    F#7
and you were in the ground in late November  
Bm                                F#7
though the leaves and earth were damp  
        G                   D            
did you think they would remember  
 F#                   G
how you almost made state champ  
                 G                             D
and when you're running for the game against Alfonsus  
           G                                    D
and you fell up on the ground and chipped your tooth  
listen, that might really have surprised us 
    A                                        A7                     
to learn that maybe you weren't really mx-missiles proof

            D                         A
whoa, I thought you were a life-sized paper doll  
           D                           A      
and you're propped up in the hardware store  
            D                           A
you were propped up on the front lawn watching the parade  
         D                         A                   
of those legionnaires with two by fours 
                            G   A  D
as they're marching off to wars   
                              G  A  D          
yeah they're marching off to wars    
            G    D      A    D
Ohh they're marchinnnnnggg

Dunno what people's problem with this sheet is, if someone can't get this figured with this sheet here they need practice... Good work!

Sooooo, suggest changes? This is not meant to be a chord for chord transcript of the song, it's an easy-to-play version that works.
