Sufjan Steven's "Illinois"
---------------------------------------------
About
-----
I sincerely hope you enjoy playing through this album as much as I did
transcribing & compiling it. It is truly a masterpiece, especially when
considered as a complete work. I cannot take credit for every song below:
many of these were from other Ultimate Guitar tabs. Thanks to everyone whose
 contributions helped me compile this. Many of the instrumentals that I
transcribed are hard to approximate on guitar, and present only an outline of
 the actual track. For that reason as well, although this is listed as
chords, there are many tabs, to try to present the most accurate depiction of
 the music as possible. All essential parts that are listed with tableture
are also listed with chords however, so don't fear if you cannot read tabs.
With that in mind, have fun and happy playing & feeling the Illinoise!

Oh great intentions
I've got the best of interventions
But when the ads come
I think about it now

In my infliction
Entrepreneurial conditions
Take us to glory
I think about it now
Cannot conversations cull united nations?
If you got the patience, celebrate the ancients
Cannot all creation call it celebration?
Or united nation. Put it to your head.

Oh great white city
I've got the adequate committee
Where have your walls gone?
I think about it now

F         Am             C                E
Chicago,     in fashion,   the soft drinks, expansion
F         C
Oh Columbi-A!
F           Am          C               E
From Paris,   incentive, like Cream of Wheat invented,
F          C
The Ferris Wheel!

Oh great intentions
Covenant with the imitation
Have you no conscience?
I think about it now

Oh God of Progress
Have you degraded or forgot us?
Where have your laws gone?
I think about it now

Ancient hieroglyphic or the South Pacific
Typically terrific, busy and prolific

Classical devotion, architect promotion
Lacking in emotion. Think about it now.

Chicago, the New Age, but what would Frank Lloyd Wright say?
Oh Columbia!
Amusement or treasure, these optimistic pleasures
Like the Ferris Wheel!

Cannot conversations cull united nations?
If you got the patience, celebrate the ancients
F       D
Columbi-A!

 D        Bm       F#m        A
I cried myself to sleep last night
        D        Bm          F#m        A
And the ghost of Carl, he approached my window

      D                 Bm        F#m    A
I was hypnotized, I was asked, To im-pro-vise
       D                Bm
On the attitude, the regret
     F#m      A
Of a thousand centuries of death

D                              Bm
Even with the heart of terror and the superstitious wearer
F#m
I am riding all alone
A
I am writing all alone

Even in my best condition, counting all the superstition
I am riding all alone
I am running all alone

And we laughed at the beatitudes of a thousand lines
We were asked at the attitudes
They reminded us of death

Even with the rest belated, everything is antiquated
Are you writing from the heart?
Are you writing from the heart?

Even in his heart the Devil has to know the water level
Are you writing from the heart?
Are you writing from the heart?

And I cried myself to sleep last night
For the Earth, and materials, they may sound just right to me

Even with the rest belated, everything is antiquated
Are you writing from the heart?
Are you writing from the heart?

Even in his heart the Devil has to know the water level
Are you writing from the heart?
Are you writing from the heart?

His father was a drinker
And his mother cried in bed
Folding John Wayne's t-shirts
When the swingset hit his head

The neighbors they adored him
For his humor and his conversation
Look underneath the house there
Find the few living things, rotting fast, in their sleep
Oh, the dead

Twenty-seven people
Even more, they were boys
With their cars, summer jobs
Oh my God

Are you one of them?

He dressed up like a clown for them
With his face paint white and red
And on his best behavior
In a dark room on the bed
He kissed them all

He'd kill ten thousand people
With a sleight of his hand
Running far, running fast
To the dead

He took off all their clothes for them
He put a cloth on their lips
Quiet hands, quiet kiss
On the mouth

And in my best behavior
I am really just like him
Look beneath the floor boards
For the secrets I have hid

I ride the train and I ride it after dark

I'm not afraid to get it right
I turn around and I give it one more try
I said things that I meant to say
The bandstand chairs and the Dewey Day parade
I go out to the golden age
The spirit is right and the spirit doesn't change

Oh Keller oh oh oh
She gave us mirror she gave us a map
Oh Canner Row, oh oh oh

Our stepmom, we did everything to hate her
She took us down to the edge of Decatur
We saw the lion and the kangaroo take her
Down to the river where they caught a wild alligator

Sangamon River, it overflowed
It caused a mudslide on the banks of the operator
Civil War skeletons in their graves
They came up clapping in the spirit of the aviator

The sound of the engines and the smell of the grain
We go riding on the abolition grain train
Steven A. Douglas was a great debater
But Abraham Lincoln was the great emancipator

Chickenmobile with your rooster tail
I had my fill and I know how bad it feels
Stay awake and watch for the data
No small caterpillar, go congratulate her

Denominator, go Decatur, go Decatur
It's the great I Am
Abominate her, go Decatur, why did we hate her?
It's the great I Am

Denominator, go Decatur, anticipate her
It's the great I Am
Appreciate her, appreciate her
Stand up and thank her
[just end]
Stand up and thank her
It's the great I Am
Stand up and thank her
It's the great I Am
Stand up and thank her
It's the great I Am
Stand up and thank herà C  D  Em  D7

Chorus: Asus   Em7  G   Bm - D/F#
Verses: Asus   Em7  G   D  - D/F#

I fell in love again
All things go, all things go
Drove to Chicago
All things know, all things know
We sold our clothes to the state
I don't mind, I don't mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

I drove to New York
In the van, with my friend
We slept in parking lots
I don't mind, I don't mind
I was in love with the place
In my mind, in my mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

If I was crying
In the van, with my friend
It was for freedom
From myself and from the land
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
(I made a lot of mistakes)
All things know, all things know
(I made a lot of mistakes)
You had to find it
(I made a lot of mistakes)
All things go, all things go
(I made a lot of mistakes)

CAPO III

Chord Progression for (almost) the entire song:
D  Csus  Am  G

Goldenrod and the 4H stone
The things I brought you
When I found out you had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car into the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

In the morning, through the window shade
When the light pressed up against your shoulderblade
I could see what you were reading

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications you could do without
When I kissed you on the mouth

Tuesday night at the Bible study
We lift our hands and pray over your body
But nothing ever happens

I remember at Michael's house
In the living room when you kissed my neck
And I almost touched your blouse

In the morning at the top of the stairs
When your father found out what we did that night
And you told me you were scared

All the glory when you ran outside
With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
And you told me not to follow you

Sunday night when I cleaned the house
I found the card where you wrote it out
With the pictures of you mother

On the floor at the great divide
With my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied
I am crying in the bathroom

In the morning when you finally go
And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
And the cardinal hits the window

In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March, on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see His face
In the morning in the window

All the glory when He took our place
But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
And He takes and He takes and He takes

Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts

Intro/Chorus
(power chords or similar)
E5  A5  D5  F#5 x2

Verse
E  A  D  F#m (fingerpick)

Trouble falls in my home
Troubled man, troubled stone
Turn a mountain of lies
Turn a card for my life
Man of Steel, Man of Heart
Tame our ways, if we start
To devise something more
Something halfways

Only a steel man came to recover
If he had run from gold, carry over
We celebrate our sense of each other
We have a lot to give one another

I took a bus to the lake
Saw the monument face
Yellow tides, golden eyes
Red and white, red and wise
Raise the flag, summer home
Parted hair, part unknown
If I knew what I read
I'll send it half ways

[back to powerchords, repeat intro x2]

Only a real man can be a lover
If he had hands to lend us all over
We celebrate our sense of each other
We have a lot to give one another

[back to fingerpicking, repeat progression x4]

Took my bags, Illinois
Dreamt the lake took my boy
Man of Steel, Man of Heart
Turn your ear to my part
There are things you have said
Raise the boat, and raise the dead
If you take us away
Still can we say:

Only a steel man can be a lover
If he had hands to tremble all over
We celebrate our sense of each other
We have a lot to give one another

repeat chorus over la-la-la, then fall apart

North of Savannah we swim in the Palisades
I come out wearing my brother's red hat
There on his shoulder my best friend is bit seven times
he was washing his face in his hands

Oh how I meant to tease him
Oh how I meant no harm
Touching his back with my hand I kiss him
I see the wasp on the length of my arm

[fingerpick over new changes]
I can't explain the state that I'm in,
the state of my heart, he was my best friend.
Into the car, from the backseat,
oh admiration, in falling asleep.

All of my powers, day after day,
I can tell you, we swaggered and swayed.
Deep in the Tower, the prairies below,
I can tell you, but telling gets old.

[Here, the chanting resumes from "Oh great sights . . ."]
Terrible sting, terrible storm,
I can tell you, the day we were born.
My friend is gone, he ran away,
I can tell you, I love him each day.

Though we have sparred, wrestled, and raged,
I can tell you, I love him each day.
Terrible sting, terrible storm
I can tell you

[Intro: pattern repeated several times]

In the tower above the earth
There is a view that reaches far
Where we see the universe
I see the fire, I see the end

Seven miles above the earth
There is Emmanuel of mothers

Dm         Gm              Am   C
  With his sword, with his robe
  He comes dividing man from brothers

In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel
In the powers of the earth, we wait until it rails and rails
In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel
Oh, my mother, she betrayed us, but my father loved and bathed us

  Where I go to sleep alone

Vamps: Amaj  Asus2         [keep in mind 11/8 time]
       Amaj  Aadd4  Amaj

	Amaj  Asus2      x3
	F     C     Dm
	[repeat 4 times]

[bass line]
I count the days the Great Frontier
Forgiving, faced the seventh year
I stand in awe of gratefulness
I can and call forgetfulness

[first/second vamp]
And when I, and when I call
The patient, the patient fall
The Spirit, the Carpenter
Invites us to be with her

F              D
What have we become America?
Soldiers on the Great Frontier!
Carpenter and Soldier, one on one
It's the battle, volunteer!

[over vamp part II]
Run from yourself
From your friends, from ya- farm, it's from here
Run for your life
For your friends, for ya- cornerstone, the baker
America, merica, meri- audition and the disher
Oh Illinois, Illinois, Illi- gum, dreamcatcher

I count the days the Great Frontier
Forgiving, faced the seventh year
I stand and strain to make ends meet
Five Spirits on the Grand Marquee

And when I, and when I call
The patient, the patient fall
The Spirit, the Carpenter
Invites us to be with her

F           A             Em
There was a man at the wall
       C
He was grateful for us all
F         A            Em
I saw the Wise Woman sing
C                         D
She wasn't asking anything
           E
She wasn't asking anything
Am                G           A
How she made the nations sing!

A  D  E  D x2

F               D
What have we become America?
Soldiers on the Great Frontier!

DmEmFGD
DmEmFG – N.C.

Run from yourself!
From your friends, from ya- at the movies
Run for your life!
For your friends, for ya- wakes the ocean
America, merica, meri- architect's rendition
Oh Illinois, Illinois, Illi- got at Sears

[bass line x4 into vamp I]

FDmAmC

Oh, Great Fire of Great Disaster
Oh, Great Heaven, oh, Great Master
Oh, Great Goat, the curse you gave us
Oh, Great Ghost, protect and save us
Oh, Great River, green with envy
Oh, Jane Addams, spirit send thee
Oh, Great Trumpet and the singers
Oh, Great Goodman, King of Swingers
Oh, Great Bears and Bulls, Joe Jackson
Oh, Great Illinois

[during “Great Trumpet”]
Given what you lost, are you better off?
Given what you had, has it made you mad?
Celebrate the few, celebrate the new
It can only start with you
