// Bird does a number of little specific things to his songs to make them sound the way the do. 
// "Roma Fade" uses a guitar along with Bird strumming the violin. A vibraphone also follows the progression.
// This is my attempt to translate it all to a playable guitar piece for one person.

Andrew Bird - "Roma Fade"

[Whistling Intro]
Dm F 
Bb Gm Amaj7 C
F EMaj7 Dmsus G#dim 
Am Amaj7

[Intro Solo]
Dm  F F7  Bb Gm  Amaj Amaj7

[Verse]
        Dm
See her light, how it reigns
                F    F7                      
So hard on your high plains
       Bb        Gm
So you take such pains
Gm              Amaj      Amaj7
That she won't notice you
         Dm
And your x-rays
              F
Of your Paleo man
     F7
All gaze
         Bb        Gm
How they rest, and play
                  Amaj7 
Slowly corrupting you
   C                            F
I wonder what the chance is you wanted to
  EMaj7                        Am
A thousand vacant stares won't make it true
        Amaj7
Make it true

[Pre-Chorus]
Gm         C                           F    F#dim
You need a witness just to know you're there
Gm                    C                        F   Amaj7
From the tips of your fingers, every strand of hair
Gm                 C                     F           
You know someone's watching you watching me watching you
    F#dim
And all that we look upon
Gm         C                        Amaj7    
You may not know me but you feel my stare

[Chorus]
           Dm 
And if she sees you, it changes you
                F        F7 
Rearranges your molecules
          Bb          Gm
And if you see her, it changes her
Gm                  Amaj      Amaj7
She's a danger now, after school
           Dm 
And if she sees you, it changes you
                F        F7 
Rearranges your molecules
          Bb          Gm
And if you see her, it changes her
Gm                   Amaj      
She'll be seeing you after school
   C                     F
Here's where gentlemen avert their eyes
EMaj7                     Am
Maybe she's a gentleman in disguise
  Amaj7
In disguise

[Pre-Chorus]
Gm         C                           F    F#dim
You need a witness just to know you're there
Gm                    C                        F   Amaj7
From the tips of your fingers, every strand of hair
Gm                 C                     F           
You know someone's watching you watching me watching you
    F#dim
And all that we look upon
Gm         C                        Amaj7    
You may not know me but you feel my stare

[Second Solo]

[Interlude]
             Dm                  F  F7
And if I see you, how it changes me
             Bb  Gm              AMaj               
And if you see me, how it changes you
  AMaj7 
Changes you

[Outro]
Dm F F7 Bb Gm Amaj Amaj7
Dm F F7 Bb Gm Amaj Amaj7
Dm
