                     MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS - The National
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ian C.
Email: ian.zampbell@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

I think it should be pretty obvious which one to play as power chords and which ones to 
as full barre chords.


Am                             Bb               C
You have to do it running but you'll do everything that they ask you to
                                       Am
cause you don’t mind seeing yourself in a picture
Bb                   C
as long as you look faraway, as long as you look removed
Am                  Bb      C
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
Am                  Bb      C
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters

Dm                         F
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
        Bb                         F                   Bb
when you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
       F              Am               A
arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
Gm                               F
well you wouldn’t want an angel watching over
Bb                               F
surprise, surprise they wouldn’t wanna watch
Bb                   F                    Am                A
another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults


And that's really it. All in all, very simple chords.

Supplementary lyrics:

Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts
so you have something to wear on your sleeve of sleeves
so you swear you just saw a feathery woman
carry a blindfolded man through the trees
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters

You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
when you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
oh you wouldn’t want an angel watching over
surprise, surprise they wouldn’t wanna watch
another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
when you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
oh you wouldn’t want an angel watching over
surprise, surprise they wouldn’t wanna watch
another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

Not that bad. Version 2 misses the Gm, this one has it right
