April 8th by Neutral Milk Hotel
from "The Other Unknown Demo", 
slightly different than the On Avery Island version
Tabbed by: sean

Tuning: normal, 
to match the song, you can put a capo on the second fret

repeat this over and over: 
e|-----0-------0-------0-------0---|
B|---6---0---4---0---2---2---4---4-|
G|-6-------4-------2-------4-------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

play this over the loop above. 
listen for how it sounds in the song. this is just a 
pretty rough idea of how the intro solo thing goes.
e|-----0---0-2--0---0-------------0-2-4-|
B|-2-4---4--------4---4-2-2--0--2-------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

e|-4\2-0-------0-2-4-7-9-9-12-11-12-14-12-11-12-11-9-11-|
B|-------2-0-2------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|


then into the vocal part.
the lyrics of this version are here.

Crawl across towards your window
I'm calling softly from the street
I'm just a lonely widow
Half awake and stranded on my feet
I'm of age but have no children
No quarter phone booth calls to home
Just late night television
Inside my bedroom all alone

There is no use in waiting
Offer up your steps so I can climb
Show me all your figure paintings
Etched in the middle of the night
Let me stretch upon your carpet
Let me hear the rain tap on your street
Knowing I am safe on the inside
Blankets wrapped and drifting off to sleep


there is the end part ("In the middle of a dream I 
hear you calling"), where there's a big change in the 
scale and such, but I haven't made out the notes.
