Song:      Cayman Islands
Artist:    Kings of Convenience
Album:     Riot on an Empty Street
Tabbed by: Sascha Frost (Username DDball on youtube.com)

This is one of my favorite Kings of Convenience songs. I noticed that the other tabs
out some parts of this song, so I went ahead and tabbed out the full song. If you notice
mistakes, please post a correction. I've included the order of the parts further down. 
this helps (=

Song Order / Lyrics:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 1 (Through the alley ways, to cool off in the shadows)
Part 2 (Then into the street, following the water)
Part 1 (There's a bearded man, paddling in his canoe)
Part 2 (Looks as if he has, come all the way from the Cayman Islands)
Part 1
Part 2
Part 1 (These canals it seems, they all go in circles)
Part 2 (Places look the same, and we're the only difference)
Part 1 (The wind is in your hair, it's covering my view I'm ...)
Part 2 (... holding onto you, on a bike we've hired until tomorrow)
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
Part 7
Part 1 (If only they could see, if only they had been there)
Part 2 (They would understand, how someone could have chosen)
Part 1 (To go the length I've gone, to spend just one day riding)
Part 2 (Holding onto you, I never thought it would be this clear)
Part 1
Part 2
Part 1
Part 2
Part 1
Part 2
Part 1
Part 2
End on first note of part 1


It's difficult to distinguish the other guitar part playing over the main guitar, but it
something like this. It is played somewhat fast. Each of the below measures are played
each.

e|---------9----------9-------------------------------------------------|
B|-----11---------11---------11-----------------------------------------|
G|-10---------10---------10---------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------8---------8---------------------------------------------------|
B|-----9---------9---------9--------------------------------------------|
G|-10--------10--------10-----------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

What a great song. Reminds us all that sometimes we just need to enjoy the simplicity of
especially when it comes to love.

The bass notes in Parts 6 & 7 should be open A string, not open E string.

Also Part 7, after a few listenings I'm sure the D string should be fretted at the 5th fret, not 7th.

Otherwise, this is a great tab!
