Flume-Bon Iver

Great song. The vocals are sung in falsetto, but sound fine down an octave. This is 
off a live recording. The album version is a bit flat, so you can tune down a half step, but 
is easier and it sounds pretty much the same.


C   Em   Am   Em


C                    Em
I am my mother's only one
It's enough

C                       Em
I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know


F               Am
Only love is all maroon
F                  Am     Am/G
Gluey feathers on a flume
F                         Am     C
Sky is womb and she's the moon


Em Am Em


C                            Em        G
I am my mother on the wall, with us all
C                           Em
I move in water, shore to shore;
Nothing's more


F                   Am    C
Only love is all maroon
F                           Am   C/B
Lapping lakes like leery loons
Leaving rope burns --
         Am     C
Reddish ruse


Em Am Em


F                 Am    C
Only love is all maroon
F                     Am       C/B
Gluey feathers on a flume
F                          Am
Sky is womb and she's the moon


C    F   Em

In the live version he ends on Em, but on the album version he ends in C.

Good tab, nearly perfect as far as I can tell :)

To make it sound a bit better though: for the G in the verses, if you use a Gadd4 (320013) and move your finger on and off the B string, you can get the little tune he makes on the record.

Sounds real good. I like to play C/G in place of C as it just gives it a little bit richer, more Bon-ish sound (if I may). Good work.

you're absolutely right in that it's a little flat. for everyone out there, it's a quarter step down. i couldn't figure out why it sound so distant and icey, and thats why, its a half of a half step flat. thats my take at least :)
