There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The Mountain Goats is essentially one man, John Darnielle, and his acoustic guitar. He's
put tonnes of albums on 7", 10", 12", CD's and cassettes... yet still remains relatively
obscure. Check him out. Head to www.themountaingoats.net (his website. warning: super bad
navigation on the site.)

This is my tab for "Pink and Blue" off of the "All Hail West Texas" album. I'm very
confident about the accuracy.

Listen to the song for the strumming pattern. It's very simple.

Intro:  E D A B   X2

E  D           A   B            E   
  Wind out of Oklahoma this morning
D              A       B        E  D
Smelled like blood an smoke
                   A        B
And the crows discuss their future in the
F#                  A         B        E
branches of their Louisiana Live Oak
     D        A          B
The limbs are strong and heavy and its
E      D           A    B    E
  Leaves are all aglow
D                  A            B
And the branches brush the upper air
        F#                           A          B
But the roots reach down to were the bad people go

    A                   B                E
And what will I do with you, pink and blue?

F#    A
True gold.

B          E    D  A  B
Nine days old.

E D A B  X3

E D           A        B
  Nice new clothes on you
        E      D             A          B
And an old cardboard produce box for a cradle
   E          D               A    B
I mashed some bananas in a coffee cup
         F#                 A        B
And I fed you there at the kitchen table
E    D               A      B
  Crows outside complaining about the
E     D               A  B       E
Finer points of local politics
       D          A          B
Strange wind all full of new smells
F#                 A       B
Rust and fur and reception sticks

    A                   B               E
And what will I do with you, pink and blue?
F#    A
True gold.
B          E     D  A  B
Nine days old.

nice, but i think the F# on "true gold" should be a C#m.

Agreed on the C#m. Otherwise, good tab.

I think the A where there is no vocals before the 2nd verse should be an A7
