May Your Hearts Stay Strong
By Cloud Cult
On the album Feel Good Ghosts

Tabbed By Duate (famine26@hotmail.com)

Everything relative to Capo on Fret 3

EADGBe
(Em7 = 022030)
(Am = x02210)
(C = x32010)
(B = x24442)
(Em = 022000)

A dash (-) means play the current chord again, and I've tried to place the dashes on the 
beat where they belong.


Intro Chords
Em7
Am
C
B
Em


   Em7                           Em
he met her at a night club, she couldn't keep the beat
              Am                            -
she wore her grandma's prom dress, raccoon slippers on her feet
           C                                    B
he took a shot of something strong, to make him feel less weak
           Em               Em
and so the story goes--

Em
Em
Em


         (no chord)                 Em7                            Em
there's something to be said about trading stories of when you're eight years old
    Am                                   -
he had his first stitches when he bit an ice cream bowl
    C                       B
she had her first kiss in a swimming hole
       Em                 Em
so the story goes--



                  C      Am                      Em           Em
and the days grew long,     and the wine was overflowing
                        C     Am
and she knew she was in love
                    Em
'cause nobody ever hugged her like that
Em
hugged her like that
Em
hugged her like that
Em
hugged her like that


(Em for A few bars)


      Em7                                   Em
they moved into a school bus just 'cause it seemed like fun
               AM
she'd say, "i like the way you touch me, it makes me feel like i have no skeleton"
    C            B
and so the story goes--

                Em7                                 Em
and i've seen photographs and videotapes of that decent home that loving place
               Am                                C          B
and it's about time two minds combine, in such a fine, fine way

Em
Em
Em


              C        Am
and may your lives be long
              Em           Em
and may your wishes all be simple
              C          Am
and may your hearts stay strong

Em                           -
tucked into bed, you see the ghost of your teddy bear
B                              -
check under the covers just to make sure he's still sleeping there
G                                           -
turn wedding gowns to angel clothes for the baby to wear
Am                                          -
turn wedding gowns to angel clothes for the baby to wear
    C                                       -
she rides him like the state fair,they make love like two solar flares
B                                 -
caring like they really care that they're gonna make it


         Em         C               Am           B
it's the day in the place where she first said i love you
           Em             C             Am             B
spread his ashes with the breath of the last kiss that she blew
     C
they decorate when featherless
      C
they celebrate through hungriness
            B
it's about time two minds combined
            B
in such a fine, fine way

              C           Am       Em     Em
and may your hearts stay strong
              C        Am
and may your lives be long

and may your wishes all be simple

and may your hearts stay strong

End on Em


*************
Chorded while listening to the track over and over, so I got it as close as I could 
without individually tabbing out all the piano riffs.

There may be errors, but I was unhappy with the current selection of chords for this 
song, so I set out to chord it myself, for an acoustic guitar.

Please send me a message if you have corrections or even if you just want to say you 
liked or hated it. Or even if you were ambivalent to it! I love hearing from you guys.
