                             SHELL GAMES - Bright Eyes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: John Morisi
Email: johnmorisi@aim.com

Tuning: Standard

This is a really fun tune from the new album "The People's Key". So psyched to 
hear what the rest of the songs sound like. Very simple song, some tricky chords, 
but you don't have to be perfect! Feel free to email me any questions of comments.

Verse:
           Am               AmMaj7/F#                     
Took the fireworks and the vanity
      F                       C
The circuit board and the city streets
F                       C
Shooting stars, swaying palm tree
G                           Am
Laid it at the Arbiters feet
        Am                                  AmMaj7/F#
If I could change my mind, change the paradigm
   F                  C
Prepare myself for another life
    F                      C
Forgive myself for the many times
     G                                           Am
I was cruel to something helpless and weak

Chorus:
     F                      G
But here it come, that heavy love
     C                           Am
I’m never gonna move it alone
F                     G
Here it come, that heavy love
C                      Am
Tag it on a tenement wall
F                      G
Here it come that heavy love
E7/G#                          Am
Someone gotta share in the load
F                     G
Oh here it come that heavy love
    F            G               C...
I’m never gonna move it alone

Interlude
...C5-G5-F5-E5 (listen to song for rhythm)

Am C F C F Am G (play chords in the normal pattern)

Verse:
I was dressed in white
Touched by something pure
death pobsessed like a teenager
Sold my tortured youth, pissed in vinegar
I’m still angry with no reason to be
At the architect who imagined this
For the everyman blessed sisyphus
Slipping steadily into madness
Now thats the only place to be free

Chorus:
But here it come, that heavy love
You’re never gonna move it alone
Here it come, that heavy love
Tatooed on a criminals arm
Here it come that heavy love
Someone gotta share in the load
Oh here it come that heavy love
You’re never gonna move it alone

Instrumental 
C5-G5-F5-E5 (listen to song for rhythm)

Am C F C F Am G (play chords in the normal pattern)

    Am     Am#7     C
No I don’t want to play
         F       C            F       G
It’s a shell game, it’s a shell game.

Bridge/Verse:
   Am                   AmMaj7/F#  
Distorted sounds on oscilloscopes
   F                        C
Distorted facts I could never cope
    F                   C
My private life is an inside joke.
  G                       Am
No one will explain it to me
          Am                   AmMaj7/F# 
WIll it be everything that we ever need
 F                C
Everyone on the count of three,
 F                C
Everyone on the count of three
     G
All together now.

Chorus:
But here it come, that heavy love
We’re never gonna move it alone
Here it come, that heavy love
PLaying as the cylinder rolls
Here it come that heavy love
I only wanna share in the load
Oh here it come that heavy love
I’m never gonna move it alone

Sorry, this was my first tab/chord thing that I've ever submitted. When I originally did it, the chords were over the words that you sing when you play the chord... Ultimate Guitar decided to mess it up a bit, I still hope you can figure it out! If you're a bright eyes fan, and still listen to them up to this album and want to figure out the song... that's dedication! (sorry that you'll have to put even more dedication into this haha)

Hey, this tab is pretty good. One thing I noticed is that the E7/Ab you posted sounds fine as just E7 or an E if anyone's looking for an easier transition between chords.
Great job though. 5/5

Good tab. Not that this really matters, but in the chord diagrams at the top you put an Am where it was supposed to be a Bbm7.
