About this tab version
Simplified version in standard tuning. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Ani DiFranco - Everest

This is intended to be a simplified version, not how Ani actually plays it. To get closer to
the album version, vary the main chord sequence by adding and removing the upper F# to get
Gmaj7 (320002), G6 (320020), A6 (x02222) and Asus4 (x02230).


[Intro]

D   G   A   A
D   G   A   A
D   G   A   A
D   G   A   A


[Verse 1]

D   G                          A
      From the depth of the Pacific to the height of Everest
D   G                       A
      Still the world is smoother than a shiny ball bearing
D   G                        A
      So I take a few steps back and put on a wider lens
D              G            A
      And it changes your skin and your sex and what you’re wearing


[Bridge 1]

   A7         A7sus4           A7      Esus2  Em7             Em
And  distance shows your silhouette to be         a lot like mine
       A7     A7sus4    A7               Esus2  Em7
Like a sphere is a sphere and all of us here
               Em           A7
Have been here all the time,   yeah we’ve been here all the time

D   G   A   A
D   G   A   A


[Verse 2]

D   G                     A
      You brought me to church, cinder blocks, fluorescent light
D                 G                A
      Yeah, you brought me to church at seven o’clock on Sunday night
D              G        A
      And the band was rockin’ and the floors were scrubbed clean
   A7         A7sus4 A7
And everybody ha  -  d a tambourine

D   G   A   A


[Verse 3]

D   G                     A
      So I took a deep breath and became the white girl with the hair
D              G           A
      And you sat right beside me while everybody stared
D   G                       A
      And through the open window I think that the singing went out(on)side
D           G            A
      And floated up to tell all the stars not to hide
D                  G               A
      Cause by the time church let out the sky was much clearer
D              G            A                A7         A7sus4     A7
      And the moon was so beautiful that the ocean held up a mirror


[Bridge 2]

    A7                         Esus2   Em7   Em
And as we walked home we spoke slowly
A7      A7sus4    A7            Esus2   Em7  Em
Yeah we spoke slow and we spoke lowly
           A            G         Bm          A
Like it was taking more time than usual to choose
A               G           Bm                A
   The words to go with your squeaky sandal shoes
     A7      A7sus4    A7
Like time is not a thing that’s ours to lose


[Outro]

D   G   A   A
D   G   A   A

D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
D            G               A
   From the height of the Pacific to the depth of Everest
