Artist: King Creosote
Title: Lavender Moon
Album: Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides
Website: http://www.kingcreosote.com/
Record Label: Fence Records http://www.fencerecords.com/

This song was not written by King Creosote but rather by his brother, who goes by the name
Pip Dylan and plays guitar on the song. It also features James Yorkston on backing vocals.

Tuning: EADGBe
Capo 3
Fingerpicked

There are various hammer-ons, pull-offs and other variations throughout
the song that can easily be improvised.This tab is roughly what the song sounds like, i think
it is probably about 90% accurate. Just play around with it to the record. Fantastic Song.
Any queries or corrections feel free to comment (especially on the lyrics).

A			   G
I felt empty and confused
			C		Em
I sat there with your clothes near me
A				G
I reached up and grabbed a lamplight
		     C
Which fell and broke
		Chorus 1
Well the what a day (???)

A			    G
I stared through empty eyes
	     C
Of lavender moon and I
Em
Far beyond your tears now
A	     G				    C
Still outside in the mist, drenched to the bone
	 alt Em
And you sang
	      Chorus 1
Everything’s all right

Lick
Chorus 2

A				G
We’d walked through summer fields
		  C		 alt Em				Chorus 1
Live the life of sin (???), cry on hard walls together, we did everything

A				G
Well at night we talked and talked
		      C		     Em
Questioned what the future embraced
A		  G
Hugging perfect shapes all day
		Chorus 1
We’d lie and sleep in

Lick
Chorus 2

A
But now you’ve left and gone
G		    C		   Em
And all I have are memories of you
A			  G
They return to me when I’m asleep
C
When dreams
alt Em
What I want to say was true (???)
