5th fret
*I’m pretty sure this is how she goes.  It’s difficult to tell sometimes because the
arrangement is occasionally at odds with the guitar.  The verses and first
I’m the most confident is correct—the final pre-chorus/chorus I’m less sure about.  This 
an amazing song, by the way.  I hope this helps you out.*

Pittsfield – by Sufjan Stevens

Capo 5th

 C                Am         G
I'm not afraid of you now, I know
    F       C             Am              G
So I climbed down from the bunk beds this low

I can talk back to you now, I know
From a few things I learned from this TV show

You can work late till midnight, we don't care
We can fix our own meals, we can wash our own hair

I go to school before sunrise, in the cold
And I pulled the alarm, and I kicked up the salad bowls

F          G      F         C       F
Since that time we meant to say much
F      C        F       C
Unsaid things begin to change
F     G          F         C         F
After school we shoveled through the snow
F       C        F       C       F
Drive upstate in silence in the cold

F        G         F (possibly Am)
You can remind me of it
F         G
That I was lazy and tired
F          G          F (possibly Am)
You can work all your life as
 F      G               F   C  F
  G  F  Am  G
I'm not afraid of you anymore

If I loved you a long time, I don't know
If I can't recall the last time you told me so
Here in this house in Pittsfield
The ghost of our grandmother works at the sewing machine post
Hiding the bills in the kitchen on the floor
And my sister lost her best friend in the Persian Gulf War
There was a flood in the bathroom last May
And you kicked at the pipes when it rattled oh the river it made

F            G      F         C      F
Stand there, tell me that I'm of no use
F         C     F        C       F
Things unspoken break us if we share
F             G       F        C        F
There's still time to wash the kitchen floor
F       C      F       C        F
On your knees, at the sink once more
 F       C        F          C
You can remind me that I was tired
 F          C        F              C
You can work late and give yourself up
 F           C      F           C
Now that I'm older, wiser, and working less
 F        C            F              C        F
I don't regret having left the place a mess

F        C        G      F      C
You can remind me that I was lazy and tired
F         C           G
You can recall your life as
F       C          G       F    C
(possibly F)   C
I'm not afraid of you, anymore
   F   C   Am (possibly F) C
