Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes


** The song is recorded with a guitar tuned down a half-step to Eb**
                (Eb Ab Db Gb C Eb)

(palm-muted) E x16

**Verse 1**

E
I was raised up believing
       A
I was somehow unique
       B
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
  A                         E
Unique in each way you can see

        E
And now after some thinking
        A
I'd say I'd rather be
  B
A functioning cog in some great machinery
A                        E
Serving something beyond me


**Chorus** (begin strumming)

      E                   A
But I don't, I don't know what that will be
     E                       A             E
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see


**Verse 2**

          E
What's my name, what's my station
        A
Oh just tell me what I should do
        B
I don't need to be kind to the armies of night
           A                    E
That would do such injustice to you

       E
Or bow down and be grateful
         A
And say "Sure take all that you see"
       B
To the men who move only in dimly-lit halls
      A                     E
And determine my future for me


**Chorus**  (with vigor)

      E                   A
And I don't, I don't know who to believe
         E                     A           E
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see


**Verse 3** (with subdued enthusiasm / palm-mute)

     E
If I know only one thing
          A
It's that every thing that I see
       B
Of the world outside is so inconceivable
A                  E
Often I barely can speak

         E
Yeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
      A
And I can't keep it to myself
     B
What good is it to sing helplessness blues?
           A                 E
Why should I wait for anyone else?


**Chorus** (With renewed intensity)

      E                     A
And I know, I know you will keep me on the shelf
          E                    A          E
I'll come back to you someday soon myyyy--self


**Awesome** 

E x6
             Amaj7
If I had an orchard
    E                  F#m
I'd work till I'm raw
   E      
If i had an orchard
    (C#m)         Amaj7
I'd work till I'm sore

    E              A
And you would wait tables
    E            Amaj7
And soon run the store

     E           Amaj7
Gold hair in the sunlight
   E            Amaj7       F#m
My light in the dawn
            E  
If I had an orchard
    (C#m)         Amaj7
I'd work till I'm sore

   E        A
If I had an orchard
    E              Amaj7
I'd work till I'm sore

E     Amaj7
OoooooOOOhhhh
E     F#m
OoooooOOOhhhh
E               A
OohhhhhhoooOOOOhoooohhhh

E            A
Someday I'll be
         E           A            E
Like the man on the screen

**FIN**
