"One By One All Day"
set tempo
This is a great song by one of the best (and most underated) bands ever. And no,
that isn't an opinion that' free to be debated. It's a fact;).
      Anyway, here's the song:

Verse 1:
 E      B        E       A 
"howdy, lem," my grandpa said with his eyes closed 
E          B                       E         A
wiping the eastbound dust from his sunburned brow
a life before doubt. 

G           A                 G                A
i smell the engine grease and mint the wind is blending 
G         A               D          F#   G            A
under the moan of rotting elm in the silo floor

Verse 2:
E      B       E         A      
down a hill of pine tree quills we made our way 
E      B                          E          A         
to the bottom and the ferns where thick moss grows 
beside a stream. 

G         A                    G               A 
under the rocks are snails and we can fill our pockets 
G               A              D        F#        G           A
and let them go one by one all day in a brand new place  

E B E A X8 (same pattern as vese just it is played 8 times, not four)

G           A        G            A
You were no ordinary drain on her defenses 
G              A        D        F#       G
and she was no ordinary girl Oh, Inverted World

Between the E and the A in the verses I reckon there's a switch to D, so play E and D quickly before going to A.

At the end it's E and G over and over again. The E comes in on the "so". And for the chord between the E and A in the verse, I tend to play a quick 02020x and it sounds great!
