MGMT - Song for Dan Treacy Chords

Chords are listed as regular or flat, never sharp, for ease of playing. This is 
regardless of key.

Examples of chords and their notations:

        D = D major

        Gb = G flat major

        Em = E minor

        Gbm = G flat minor

        Cdim. = C diminished

        Bbdim. = B flat diminished

        


Part A (0:00 - 0:22)


        D                     Gbm
                He spends his time

                        G
        or maybe half of his time

                                    Bbdim.
        or part of the time wandering

                   D                 Gbm               Em
        'round the creeks and cobble stones of hackney lanes


        D                          Gbm
                with a tear in his eye

               G                                    Bbdim.
        as the children walk by, he's thinking of a song

             D                Gbm          Em
        then stops to paint a picture of a frown

        Gb        F
        walking around


Part B (0:23 - 0:40)


        Em      Cm     Gm     Gb   F

        Em      Cm     Gm     Gb   F

        Em


Part A (0:41 - 1:02)


        D                    Gbm
                Dan Treacy's smile

                 G                                         Bbdim.
        leaves you trying to decide who's the victim, what's the crime?

          D
        no rest for the mind

               Gbm         Em
        that's seen it all before


        D                                 Gbm
                and I don't know where he lives

                 G
        but he's a myth of a man

                          Bbdim.
        and Texas Bob the cameraman

           D              Gbm             Em
        is off to fix his seat before the show

                  Gb           F
        yeah, but where did he go?


Part B (1:03 - 1:14)


        Em      Cm     Gm     Gb   F

        Em      Cm     Gm     Gb   F


Part C (1:15 - 1:32)


           Dbm            A
        To know when your time's up

            B                  E               Abm       Bm
        you flip the glass and watch the hours quickening

           A        Am
        oh oh oh oh oh


               Dbm         A
        In the back of the station

             B              E                  Abm       Bm
        fluorescent lights about to quit their flickering


Part D (1:33 - 1:42)


                A
        Well he speaks his mind

                B
        he says "What is crime?"

            Bm
        Dan Treacy's eyes


Part A (1:43 - 2:01)

Note:
The chords from "In the middle..." to "...lark" are not actually played in the song, but
for things like acoustic covers I thought it might be helpful to include them, so I did.

        D                            Gbm
                In the middle of the park

                 G
        when the underground is dark,

                           Bbdim.
        he's a poet he's a lark

                  D                Gbm               Em
        He starts thinking about a place that no one knows


        D                               Gbm
                And when the creeks run dry

                 G
        he stays frozen in time

                              Bbdim.
        strange lights in the sky

              D
        start blinking

                      Gbm
        I can see the car outside 


Part E (2:02 - 2:11)


        Em
        But he's listening, ooh ooh ooh ooh

        Abm
        he's listening, ooh ooh ooh

        Bm
        he's listening, ahh ahh ahh

                 A
        and he's making up his mind


Part C (2:12 - 3:09)

Note:
The lyrics and instrumentation of this second Part C are different,
however the chords remain the same.

        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

           B                   E       Abm    Bm     A  Am
        to get things done and overcome


        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

        B               E        Abm  Bm     A  Am
        yeah he's gonna let it go


        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

        B               E              Abm    Bm     A  Am
        in the park and at the station


        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

        B                E          Abm       Bm     A  Am
        yeah, he's gonna get it done


        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

        B                   E           Abm   Bm     A  Am
        ooh yeah he's gonna get it done


        Dbm         A
        He made his mind up

        B                E            Abm     Bm


Part F (3:10 - 4:09)

        A                              B
        yeah, he's gonna let it go, uh oh

                      Gbm
        no matter the time

           B
        oh oh

                 Gbm
        when the creeps run by

           B
        oh no

                        Gbm
        he's making his mind up

              B
        oh oh oh oh

        Gbm                              B
        yeah he's gonna get it done whoa oh

           Gbm                                B
        oh yeah, when the creeks run dry whoa oh

        Gbm                            B
        yeah, he's gonna listen to his soul,

        Gbm
        yeah, when the creeps walk by and say

        Cdim.
        "Come here boy, look me in the eye"

        bow to the heart, back to the beat of

        E
        Dan Treacy

For anyone wondering, it's much easier to play the Bbdim like so; xxx320
therefore making the Cdim; xxx542

Still tho, those ****in diminished chords are a bitch and a half.
