THE INFANTA -- THE DECEMBERISTS, "Picaresque"(2005)
Exact chords tabbed out by ClassicalfreaK, 2015
====================================================
INTRO
(flute-like instrument)
(drum beat)

VERSE
         E
Here she comes in her palanquin
On the back of an elephant
     F                                 E
On a bed made of linen and sequins and silk
All astride on her father's line
With the king and his concubines
        F                                      E
And her nurse with her pitchers of liquors and milk
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta

VERSE
     E
Among five score pachyderm
Each canopied and passengered
        F                                    E
Sit the duke and the duchess' luscious young girls
Within sight of the baronness
Seething spite for this live largesse
       F       
By her side sits the baron
               E
Her barrenness barbs her
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta

VERSE
     F
A phalanx on camelback
Thirty ranks on a forward tack
         F#                                    F
Followed close, their shiny bright standards a-waving
While behind in their coach, in fours
Ride the wives of the king of Moors
        F#                                  F
And the veiled young virgin, the prince's betrothed
    Ab             Eb           F
And we'll all come praise the infanta
    Ab             Eb           F
And we'll all come praise the infanta

BRIDGE
E                         F
 And as she sits upon her place
E                          F
 Her innocence laid on her face
Bb                                 F
 From all atop the parapets blow a multitude of coronets
Bb                        F
 Melodies rhapsodical and fair
Bb
 And all our hearts afire
    F
The sky ablaze with cannon fire
   E                           F
We all raise our voices to the air
        E
To the air...

VERSE
     E
And above all this falderal
On a bed made of chaparral
       F                             E
She is laid, a coronal placed on her brow
And the babe, all in slumber dreams
Of a place filled with quiet streams
        F                                         E
And the lake where her cradle was pulled from the water
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta
          G        D          E
And we'll all come praise the infanta
