The Shins - New Slang submitted by badfish_313
From the Album "Oh Inverted World"

Chords:

Am, C, F, G


[Verse 1]

Am               C
Gold teeth and a curse for this town 
F              
Were all in my mouth
     C                         Am   G
Only I don't know how they got out, dear
Am             C
Turn me back into the pet 
F
I was when we met
C                          Am   G
I was happier then with no mind set


[Chorus]

G                      C
And if you'd a took to me like
  F                 G
A gull takes to the wind
                        C
Well, I'd a jumped from my tree
    F                     C
And I'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
F                                 G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Verse 2]

Am                 C
New slang when you notice the stripes
F
The dirt in your fries
     C
Hope it's right when you die
Am      G
Old and bony
Am                 C
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall
F
Never should'a called
    C
But my heads to the wall
        Am  G
And I'm lonely


[Chorus]

G                      C
And if you'd a took to me like
  F                 G
A gull takes to the wind
                        C
Well, I'd a jumped from my tree
    F                     C
And I'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
F                                 G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Verse 3]

Am                C
God speed all the baker's at dawn
F
May they all cut their thumbs
    C
And bleed into their buns 
           Am   G
'Till they melt away


[Chorus 2]

G                     C    
I'm looking in on the good life
           F               G
I might be doomed never to find
                           C
Without a trust or flaming fields 
         F       G
Am I too dumb to refine?
                       C
And if you'd a took to me like 
     F                     C
Well I'd a danced like the queen of the eyesores 
F                                 G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Outro]

Am, C, F, G

At least he seems to have located a feasible key, but what terribly boring and inacurate tab this is! Don't waste yout time...

The chords are right, but there aren't enough of them. For instance, when Mercer sings, "I'da danced like the King of the Eyesores..." he switches from F to C many more times. It should look more like...

F C F C F C
I'da danced like the King of the Eyesores, the rest of our lives woulda
G
fared well.
