See The Constelation
by They Might Be Giants
Transcribed by Adam Lane

I think it's all power chords, but your guess is as good as mine

The Riff: Play this twice

F/G             F/G                     F/G                F/G
I lay my head_  On the railroad track_  Stare at the sky_  All painted up_
D                                   G
Your train is gone, won't be comin' back

(CHORUS)
    D   C     G        -     C         A
See the constellation, ride across the sky
G    D      C           A    G      D           C        G
No cigar no lady on his arm, just a guy made of dots and lines
G      D           C        G
Just a guy made of dots and lines


Two years ago_  Moved from my town_  I was looking up_  Past the city lights_
But the city lights got in my way

(CHORUS)

(For this verse, there is no guitar, the base is playing F and G in the same
rythm as the chords in the other verses)
I found my mind_ On the ground below_ I was looking up_ It was looking back_
I was in the sky all dressed in black

(CHORUS:Which is extended with...)

G      D           C     -    F
Just a guy made of dots_ and_ lines_

(Some improv here, then play the riff over this)

Can you hear what I see in the sky?

At the end, there's something going on with a G chord.  Some bending and
stuff.  listen to the song and play with it.
