Strumming

Okkervil River - Red
Standard Tuning
Tabbed by Chris Shelton

Chords:
C - X32010
C9- x32030
G - 320033
F - 133211
Am- X02210

Chords in parentheses are over really long drawn out vowels,
so instead of writing "baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar" and trying to
space out the chords over them, I just clumped them together
in parentheses. The rhythm shouldn't be hard to figure out for
these sections because it usually follows the same pattern as
similar parts of the song.

Intro:
C G F C
G
C G F C
G     FG


 C         G        F
Red is my favorite color

              Am            C        G
Red like your mother's eyes after awhile

     C           G             F
Of crying about how you don't love her

           Am
She says, "I know I don't deserve

 C
Supervised sight of her

    G                                  (F G Am FG)
But each day becomes a blur without my daughter"


 C          G        F
Fall is my favorite season

                 Am                 C              G
Like falling to reasoning why you crashed from on high

             C        G        F
She says, "Why is my life so uneven

Am
And what have I done right

 C
But given you your life

   G                            (FG) Am                F   G
If after I let you on into that bar room... into that bar room?"


Interlude:
C C C9 C
C G F C
G
C G F C
G 
C G F C
C G F C
C G F C
G     FG


  C          G        F
"Yes" is my favorite answer

          Am               C        G
I took a dancer home, she felt so alone

     C            G            F
We stayed up all night in the kitchen

          Am            C             G
Doing my dishes, on and on until the dawn

           C                G        Am
She said, "I know that it's easy to have me

 F
But I have seen some things

  G                 C          G      Am
That I cannot even tell to my family pictures

                 F                      G
And I'm full of fictions and fucking addictions

               C
And I miss my mother"


Second Interlude*:
C C9 C C9
C C9 C C9
C C9 C C9

*The rhythm here is difficult to explain from the chords alone;
basically he switches between C and C9 for twelve measures. You
can hear it especially well from the left speaker.


               C           G        F
She'll never know I could never forget her

                        Am              C          G
If I could write her a letter, I'd try with every line

           C          G             F
To say, "She still remembers your touch

        Am                G
And I know that it's not much

    C       G         F
I know that it's not much

    Am                G
I know that it's not much

                       C
But you still haven't lost her

(C G F C G G G G)
You still haven't lost her

(C G F C G G G G)
You still haven't lost her

(C G F C C G F C C G F C)
You still haven't lost her

     G
Not yet"
