Song: Hot Air Balloon
Artist: Owl City
Tabbed by: Kevin Shoptaw


I tabbed this song all by ear and the interlude was really hard.
So bear with me here.



Capo on the 1st fret:

Intro:  C, G, Am, F (2x)

Verse:
(Do something like that for the chords in the 1st verse

  C
I-----------------------------------I
I-------1---------------------------I
I-----0---0-------------------------I
I---2------2---(2x)-----------------I

I-----------------------------------I

          
We wrote a prelude to our own fairy tale
            
and bought a parachute at a church rummage sale

       
and with a mean sewing machine and miles of thread
             
we sewed the day above L.A. in navy and red
           
we roamed a racetrack through your mom's kitchen chairs
            
and fought the shadows back down your dark basement stairs
   
I lit a match then let it catch to light up the room
            
and then you yelled as we beheld an old maroon hot air balloon

Chorus:

C                G
I'll be out of my mind
         Am          F
and you'll be out of ideas pretty soon
     C    G        Am              F
so let's spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
C                 G
leave your jacket behind 
      Am                F
lean out and touch the tree tops over town
     C    G       Am              F
I can't wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down

Interlude:

Same verse:

We drank the great lakes like cold lemonade
and both got stomach aches, sprawled out in the shade
swore to death, you held your breath
and I tried not to yawn
you made my frown turn upside down and now my worries are gone

Same Chords for Chorus:

I'll be out of my mind
and you'll be out of ideas pretty soon
so let's spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
leave your jacket behind 
lean out and touch the tree tops over town
I can't wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down

C                G
I'll be out of my mind
Am                       F
and you'll be out of ideas pretty soon
    C        G            Am         F
so let's spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon
C                  G
leave your jacket behind 
Am                     F
lean out and touch the tree tops over town
  C        G       Am             F
I can't wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down
