This is definitely one of my favorites by the Animal Collective. This way sounds really
to me, but try playing the chords in different ways and see what sounds best, especially
F# chord - which you can also play barre-ing the 2nd or 10th frets. The chords with the 
just mean play them as open chords instead of the barre chords.

"The Purple Bottle"

     E6   B    F#   A   C#m   B*   E*




I've gotta big-big-big-big heart beat, yeah
I think you are the sweetest thing

I wear a coat of feelings and they are loud
I've been having good days

Think we are the right age
To start out own peculiar ways
With good friendly homes

You get me freaked freaked freaked on preakness
Never met a girl that likes to drink through hoses

Knows her chinese ballet
Must admit you smell like fruity nuts and good grains
When you show my purple gaze
A thing or two at night

Make me sick sick sick to kiss you and I think that i woud vomit
But I'll do that on mondays i dont have to work today
I like it when I bump you an accident's a truth gate
I'm humbled in your pretty lense
I'll hold you dont you go

B                          F#                        E
Sometimes you're quiet and sometimes I'm quiet. Hallelujah!
B                           F#                                E
Sometimes I'm talkative and sometimes you're not talkative, I know....


(same chords as before)
Well i'd like to spread your perfume around the old apartment
Could we live together and agree on the same wares?
A trapeze is a bird cage even if its empty and defintintely fits the room
And we would toooo
And my dear dear dear khalana
I talk too much about you
Their ears are getting tired of me singing all the night through
Lets just talk together
You and me and me and you
And if theres nothing much to say
Well, silence is a bore

I've gotta big big big big heart beat, yeah
I think you are the sweetest thing
I wear a coat of feelings and they are loud
I've been having good days
Think we are the right age
To start out own peculiar ways
With good friendly homes

Sometimes you're quiet and sometimes I'm quiet hallelujah
Sometimes I'm talkative and sometimes you're not talkative i know....
Sometimes you hear me when others they can't hear me. Hallelujah!
Sometimes I'm naked and thank god Sometimes you're naked. Well, hello.....

      C#m               B*             E*
Can I tell you that you are the purple in me?
      C#m              B*                  E*
Can I call you just to hear you, would you care?
       C#m              B*            E*
When I saw you put your purple finger on me
          C#m             B*
There's a feelin' in your bottle
           F#                 E*
Found your bottle, found your heart
        C#m               B*             E*
Gives a feeling from your bottled little part


E6     B     F#     A

E6 (briefly, then..)

on the big drum beats: E*   E*   E*

E               E*   E*   E*-E*-E*

Hey oooooo

Gotta crush high
Thought I crushed all I could
B*                       E*      E*   E*-E*-E*
Crushed all I can then I touched your hand
Crush high
Dont want it to stop
      B*                              E*    E*   E*-E*-E*
Cause stories of your brother make my crush high pop
        E                             B
And you couldnt really know cause its in my toes
    B*                             E*    E*   E*-E*-E*
And sometimes i wonder whered that crush high go
E                 B
Crush high then i go and take some pills
        B*                        E*    E*   E*
Cause i cant do all of my dos and still feel ill

You get that whooooooo (x8)

Excellent tab!
I think the A that you use in the verses sounds pretty good as a D, just letting you know.
