I saw patinahat's tab of this song and I spent 2 hours listening to the song and I noticed he
got it wrong. Thanks for trying though, patrick. Following these chords should help you sound
 just like the band. Kevin Barnes is about as good a songwriter as you can get, by the way!

"My Favorite Boxer"-Written by Kevin Barnes Performed by of Montreal
In the beginning the guitar plays higher in the neck besides the barred chords in the
rest of the song.
-The G minor  F      Ebm to   A-   B   A/Dm  F7  Bb/Dm G/Eb  Eb/Cm*
a- ---------------------------------------------------10------4
*comes later in the song. I put it up here to save space.

Here are the lyrics with chords. The Bb to A/Dm is the only part that I am not totally
convinced is correct, but I couldn't interpret that spot easily and the A/Dm is similar

"My Favorite Boxer"-Written by Kevin Barnes Performed by of Montreal
(Gm)Hector (F)Ormano’s my (Ebm)favorite box(A-)er
He(Bb) goes(A/Dm) sma(F7)sho and E(Bb)very(Bb/Dm) one(F7) (G/Eb)Cheers (F)
(Gm)He turns big (F)men to (Ebm)whimpering co(A-)wards
(Bb)He’s (A/Dm)so (F7)strong and (Bb)how (Bb/Dm)I (F7)ad (G/Eb)ore (F)him

Change to Ab 2/4:
But (Cm)im so (Db)weak 
So much so that(Eb)I’m(Ab)afraid to walk alone down my street
(Db)I know I’ll(Eb/Cm)never be as brave as (D)Hector Ormano!

Change to Db 2/8(?):
(Db)One (Ab)summer (Bbm)day I was (Ab)sitting (Gb)on the bridge(Ab)
(Ab7)Looking at the water be(Db)low
(Db)When I hear (C7)some (Bbm)laughter and A fa(Ab)mili(Gb)ar voice(Ab)
Coming from down the road(Ab)
It was (Eb/Cm)then that I saw and my (Ab)heart nearly dropped
I saw (Eb/Cm) Hector Ormano with some (Gb)friends
And (Ab)as they approached my (Gb)mind went blank
As I (Ab)struggled to find the words
I was (Ab7)dying to (Db)tell him (Bbm)(Fm)(Gb)(Ab->7)(Db)

(Db)As Hector (Ab)walked (Bbm)by he picked up a (Ab)stick
And (Ab7)threw it at my (Db)head
(Db)His friends (Ab)went (Bbm)quiet and (Ab)Hector said to me(Ab7)
What are you looking at (Db)wimp?

Back to Bb 4/4:
(Gm)Hector Or(F)mano’s my (Ebm)favorite box(A-)er
(Bb)Ev(A/Dm)en (F7)thought he (Bb)was (Bb/Dm)mean (F7)to (G/Eb) me.  (F)
(Gm)My father (F)thinks im A (Ebm)meaningless no (A-)one
(Bb)Compared (A/Dm)to the (F7)perfect (Bb)Hec (Bb/Dm)tor (F7)Or (G/Eb)ma (F)no
