The Hotelier - Soft Animal

Besides the intro riff, I think the whole song is mainly three chords, so it's a pretty simple song, but here
are the chords so you can play it and sing at the same time.

Tuning: half-step down

    Cadd9             G/B       D/A
eb|-(3)---------------(3)-------(2)---------|
Bb|--3-----------------3---------3----------|
Gb|--0-----------------0---------2----------| (The notes in parenthesis are optional, I tend to add them in
Db|--2-----------------0---------0----------|    during the chorus or other 'large' sounding sections)

Eb|-------------------(3)-------(2)---------|




Cadd9                            G/B      D/A
We were cloaked in the awning of night or early morning. 

Cadd9                                      G/B       D/A
Through the headboard there’s a flicker of light 
and light warning. 

Cadd9                    G/B          D/A
Sophie’s on the bunk overhead reading Mary Oliver 

Cadd9                   G/B        D/A
while I lay still in my bed. 
That’s when I see you there. 



Cadd9     G/B   D/A
Fawn doe, light snow. 

Cadd9                         G/B               D/A
Make me feel alive, 
make me believe that all my selves align. 

Cadd9      G/B   D/A
Fawn, doe, light snow.
Cadd9                             G/B              D/A

Spots on brown of white 
make me believe that it is all alright. 



Cadd9                         G/B   D/A
Your soft face pressed to the wilt, 
first spring sunrise 

Cadd9                     G/B    D/A
standing low on quivering stilts. 

Cadd9                        G/B       D/A
In attempting to keep you to stay I am raising no alarm. 
Cadd9             G/B     D/A

It is just us two alone. 

              Cadd9                             G/B              D/A
Then I feel a sigh of wind, your raising eyes 
a rolling fog that lets you hide 

    Cadd9                          G/B   D/A
and I can hear the rustling as you go.   
Oh, go slow. 



Cadd9     G/B   D/A
Fawn doe, light snow. 

Cadd9                         G/B                D/A
Make me feel alive, 
make me believe that I don’t have to die. 

Cadd9      G/B   D/A
Fawn, doe, light snow.
Cadd9                             G/B                  D/A

Spots on brown of white 
make me believe that there’s a God sometimes. 




Cadd9                                   G/B              D/A
The ring around your mothers heart 
grows saccharine then falls apart 

    Cadd9                          G/B        D/A
and I can hear the rustling as you go. 

Cadd9                               G/B             D/A
You camouflaged or clearly seen 
and nameless in the in-between 

    Cadd9                          G/B        D/A
and I can hear the rustling as you go. 

    Cadd9                    G/B          D/A
The firing of rifles off 
the echo hits you hard enough 

    Cadd9                          G/B        D/A
and I can hear the rustling as you go.
  Cadd9                         G/B                D/A

A soft and skittish self inside 
shines golden, opal, chrysolite 

    Cadd9                          G/B        D/A
and I can feel the rustling as you go. 
     Oh, go slow.
  
Cadd9                      G/B              D/A
A mob a voices harmonize 
and tell me that youre not alive 

    Cadd9                          G/B        D/A
but I can feel the rustling as you go.
