Tables and Chairs

As recorded by Andrew Bird on the album The Mysterious Production of Eggs

Transcribed by Cameron Brydon (brydon5@hotmail.com)

Andrew Bird is an amazing singer/songwriter out of Chicago.  He is a one-man orchestra, 
multiple instruments during each song, looping samples of each to build songs.
