Any corrections, send them my way.

Great song from Arcade Fires Funeral period (best period imo). Been bothering myself 
over the fact that there was no tab for this, so I went ahead and gave it a shot.

Standard tuning, no capo

In this song, both Win and Rich are on guitars, so I'll write down their chords together 
and mark the chords played by Rich with a * at the end of them. Those who are without 
that symbol are played by win. Simple enough.

Intro:

Let all these chords ring except for the regular C. Just do some down strokes on it. 
(Listen to the song, you'll get it)

Ab F C# Ab
Ab F C# C

Verse:

For the first to verses let the chords ring as well, except for the C.

In the background the violin plays a high pitch C and sliding ut to C# at the end of 
each line. (Again listen in and you'll here it)


Ab               F                  C#
Ab*              F*                 C#*
  Burning bridges, breaking hearts
                  Ab
                  Ab*
  Everything you taught us to do
Ab                     F                     C#
Ab*                    F*                    C#*
  We're burning bridges, and breaking hearts
                     C
                     C*
  No home to come home to


Ab                      F                    C#
Ab*                     F*                   C#*
  We're burning bridges, and breaking hearts
                   Ab
                   Ab*
  I won't look you in the eye
Ab                    F                 C#
Ab*                   F*                C#*
  And burning bridges, breaking hearts
                  C
                  C*
  Caught you in a friendship lie


Ab F C# Ab
Ab* F* C#* Ab*
(These chords are played at the same time by Win and Rich, you don't need to let these 
ring if you dont want to. In the song they strum them)


(Let these chords ring)
Ab*            F*                C#*
  Took a visit, to your old house
                       Ab*
  The windows were all boarded up
Ab*             F*          C#*
  Try to hold these, memories
                C*
  The ocean in a paper cup


Ab                 F              C#
Ab*                F*             C#*
  There's no future in this town
                     Ab
                     Ab*
  They barricade the buildings there
Ab            F                C#
Ab*           F*               C#*
  To the lion, you've been cast
                C
                C*
  Only bones are gonna last


Chorus (Or some such):

Both guitars play this. The whole thing is tremolo picked. For the most accurate sound, 
make sure to slide between the notes:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--16--------9--8---115----7--5----16------9-8---15---11-12-13--------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

It ends on Ab and then goes back into the verse chords. Like so (Again, this verse is 
only played by Rich, chords ring):

Ab*             F*              C#*
  There's a city, underground
                 Ab*
  There's a city made of glass
Ab*             F*              C#*
  There's a city, underground
                   C
                   C*
  Hurry cause it's breaking fast



Ab                      F                  C#
Ab*                     F*                 C#*
  We're burning bridges, breaking hearts
                  Ab
                  Ab*
  Everything you taught us to do
Ab                     F                     C#
Ab*                    F*                    C#*
  We're burning bridges, and breaking hearts
                     C
                     C*
  No home to come home to


Ab                      F
Ab*                     F*
  We're burning bridges, breaking hearts
Ab                     F
Ab*                    F*
  We're burning bridges, and breaking hearts
Ab                      F                  C#
Ab*                     F*                 C#*
  We're burning bridges, breaking hearts
                 C
                 C*
  Breaking hearts


Here the song goes into a new chorus like thing. Where both guitars paly the following 
in tremolo picking:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--19---9-8--15--11---6--5--10-9--------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

That repeats while Win sings first verse over it.

Song ends on Abm

The F is actually an Fm

Also I recommend playing this with a Capo on the 1st fret so that it becomes an easy peasy G Em C G
