Artist: The New Pornographers
Album:  Twin Cinema
Song:   The Bones of an Idol
tabber: John Baer (eddiebauerman16@aol.com)

Intro: (Acoustic open chords) G E (x2)

Verse 1:
   C       D            Bb                        G    E
We lit by a torch as we kneel in the court of the king
      C                D           Bb       C          D           Bb
As we sift through the bones of an idol, we dig for the bones of an idol
                 G    E      F                              G E (x2)
When the will is gone......... Cuz something keeps turning us on...

Verse 2: (full band/electric)
    C           D               Bb                            G    E
You hold up the cup you've been searching for since you were young
          C             D          Bb            C            D        Bb
When you still had the bones of an idol, if you still had the bones of idol
                    G   E     F                             
You'd be long, long gone... But something keeps turning you on...

Instrumental/Chorus 1: (C G D   Bb F C) x2 then G E x2  

Verse 3:
   C            D           Bb                       G      E
We cling to the raft, we are missing by half what we wanted
       C                D           Bb
But we escaped with the bones of an idol,
C                D            Bb                    G   E
Escaped with the belt and the title but our land is gone
And something keeps turning us on...

Instrumental/Chorus 2: (over a lot of harmonizing 'oooos' and 'ahhhhs')

(C G D   Bb F C) x3  end on A G.

-Cheers, and buy Twin Cinema!!! (John Baer)
