Song: "Elephant Elephant"
Artist: Evelyn Evelyn
Album: Evelyn Evelyn (2010)

Transcribed by: Freeze1186 (Freeze1186@neo.rr.com)

Notes: The bass for most of the chords is doing an "Oompah" kind of rhythm of quarter notes alternating 
between the root and fifth of the chord. For example on the F chord, the bass is playing F,C,F,C 
and for the C chord, it plays C,G,C,G, etc. I'm going to write those out as F and F/C, C and C/G, etc.  
The easiest way to play that is to play the all the chords as barre chords and move your first finger to 
get the changing bass notes. There's a lot of little bass runs between chords too, but they're easy. 
You can figure them out on your own, just use your ears.

Big and strong and gentle and in - telligent, intelligent.

Oh, elephant, elephant,

                                          C         C/G
You’re sad and in a cage, but that’s ir - relevant, irrelevant.

                                     A             D
’Cause everyone is jealous when they see me riding by,

On a friend of such of great size.

Other kids ride bikes, that’s true,

   F       F/C       D       D/A

But that won’t do for me you understand. (Understand)
