Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans
Tab by Jon Dallas

This is an incredibly creepy song when played and sung correctly. In the recording, 
is playing a 4 string banjo, so the tuning for guitar is with the high e string tuned down 
a d.

The up side of playing this on the guitar instead of the banjo is that on the banjo, it 
very difficult to produce a lot of sound when strumming. With a guitar, however, it is 
to create a large sound when strumming.

Tuning - EADGBD

-Hope you enjoy

Lyrics:
We didn't sleep too late.
There was a fire in the yard.
All of the tress were in light.
They had no faces to show.
I saw a sign in the sky:
Seven swans, seven swans, seven swans.
I heard a voice in my mind:
"I will try, I will try, I will try.
I will try, I will try, I will try."

We saw the dragon move down.
My father burned into coal.
My mother saw it from far.
She took her purse to the bed.
I saw a sign in the sky:
Seven horns, seven horns, seven horns.
I heard a voice in my mind:
"I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord."
He said: "I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord."
He said: "I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord."

If you are familiar to finger-picking, this is not a very difficult song at all.
