                             Desperation Breeds - Andrew Bird
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The fingerpicking in the verse looks complex, but all you need to do is play the bass 
with your thumb and the melody with your index finger. Once you get the timing, it's easy 
enough (or just scroll down to the bottom and play the chords).

The rest of the song is pretty much all violin and improvising that would be impossible 
to tab, so I'll leave it there. You could leave out the fancy instrumentation and just 
play the whole song with this fingerpicking style or just with the chords.


Chords:

G                      F
Beekeeper sing of your frustration
G                 F
In this litigious breeze
G                  F
Of accidental pollination
G                   F
In this era without bees


G                     F
We keep breeding desperation
G              F
In this era of thieves
G                      F
Who keep stealing respiration
G                     F
From the tenderest of trees

G                  F
This peculiar incantation
G                  F
Sure you heard it before
G                   F
Instead of breeding desperation
G                        F
Make me a pallet on your floor
