Neutral Milk Hotel - The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1

Tabbed by: Truly Ninja

Tuning: EADGBe


F   Bb  F  C  Bb  (x2)


F                                C              Bb
 When you were young you were the king of carrot flowers
F                          C                   Bb
 and how you built a tower tumbling through the trees
C                         Bb               F         Bb  F  C  Bb
In holy rattlesnakes that fell all 'round your feet
F                                     C             Bb
and your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
F                               C               Bb
and dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
C                               Bb                 (F       Bb  F  C  Bb repeat x2)     
as we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for 
F                              C                  Bb
and this is the room one afternoon I knew I could love you
F                        C              Bb
and from above you how I sank into your soul
C                            Bb      F           Bb  F  C  Bb
into that secret place where no one dares to go 
F                                 C             Bb
and your mom would drink till she was no longer speaking
F                              C                 Bb
and dad would dream of all the different ways to die
C                          Bb               (F    Bb  F  C  Bb    repeat x4)
each on a little more than he could dare to try

Try capo on 5. Play CFCGF. It sounds a little higher, but is easier to play.

Don't cop out for an easier way to play. Sure, it's bloody difficult to switch from that F to Bb to C, but it's worth it if you want it to sound better and know how to switch from barre to open.

Tab is right, three chords in the whole song. Doesn't have the synth thing, but that's okay; it isn't guitar.

The synth thing uses the same chords, and you can get that sound from a bagpipe setting on a keyboard.

That's what my band does.
