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

Intro: A#,C,Dm,C,F,C,Am 
End on A#


    C Dm
Vesuvius

    C  F
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

         Am2      A#
That you cannot ignore


C,Dm,C,F,C,Am,A# (4x)
