Sufjan Stevens: Vesuvius

Notes:
-The first C of each verse on the first half is a two fret slide up from A#
-There are two types of Am in the second part as it's transitioning to the second half 
the song.  I play the first and second Am like this:

Am (1)   Am (2)
EADGBE   EADGBE
||||1|   ||||1|
||22||   ||22||
|3||||   ||||||

End on A#


    C Dm

I am   here

           C   Am A#
You are all    I  have

     C  Dm
Fire of fire

      C F
I'm insecure

             C
For it is all

     Am      A#
Been made to plan

        C Dm
Though I  know

      C F
I will  fail

        C
I cannot

   Am      A#
Be made to laugh

      C Dm
For in  life

     C F
As in  death

              C
I'd rather be burned

        Am        A#
Than be living in debt

C,Dm,C,F,C,Am,A# (2x)

    C Dm
Vesuvius

       C  F
Are you a ghost

                       C
Or the symbols of light

     Am      A#
Or a fantasy host?

       C Dm
In your  breast

        C   F
I carry the form

                      C
The heart of the Earth

        Am         A#
And the weapons of warmth

    C Dm
Vesuvius

          C F
The tragic  oath

                      C
For you have destroyed

         Am      A#
With the elegant smoke

  C Dm               C  F
Ora-cle, I've fallen at last

                       C
But they were the feast

     Am        A#
Of a permanent blast

C,Dm,C,F,C,Am,A# (2x)

    C Dm
Vesuvius

      C F
Oh, be  kind

                  C
It hasn't occurred

      Am          A#
No it hasn't been said

   C Dm          C   F
Suf--jan, follow the path

                 C        Am       A#
It leads to an article of imminent death

   C Dm          C    Dm
Suf--jan, follow your heart

                Am1
Follow the flame

   Am2         A#
Or fall on the floor

   C Dm             C     Dm
Suf--jan, the panic inside

                   Am1
The murdering ghost

That you cannot ignore

this is ridiculousness! tabs are illegal now? goddamn you bureaucratic philistines! are their sphincters so tight that they don't realize that tabs exist solely in appreciation of the music itself? it's bad enough that teenage culture is already monopolized and mass produced, now they're gonna prevent people from easily sharing the means of emulating the music people love? idiots...
