Song: An Animal In Your Care
Artist: Wolf Parade
Album: At Mount Zoomer, Sub-Pop, 2008
---------------------------------------------------------------------
All chords are barred, unless tabbed out (well, the E/Em's are open)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

           E
Time after time
            G#m
You will forgive me
        G              B
Like an animal in your care
            E
But give it time
            G#m
You will outlive me
             G                      B
And take the bow back you put in my hair


       E                       G#m
Made a parade of myself in the street outside your house
        G                     B
For the New York photographer there
           E                    G#m
I fell for crime and I fell for beauty
           G                                    B
I fell for you because you're the only one that cared


------------------------------------------

           C
And when I die
               G
You can put on costumes
       Em
In the style of the clothes I wore
             C                G
And sing the songs your lover taught you 
                  Em                          E
When you were too young to know that this was what they were for.

[Over top of this la la la part a guitar comes in...]

e|-----------------------|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|-----------------------|
G|--9--7--4--2--2-4-2----|---9--7--2-4--2-4-2----|
D|--------------------0--|--9-----------------0--|

         C            G#m     Em
La la la la. La la la la. lalala [x2... second time transition from Em to E]


------------------------------
[For this part, a second guitar picks around the chords played by the main
 guitar, with a prominent picking of:
e|---------|
B|---------|
G|--6-6-4--|
D|---------|
A|---------|
E|---------|
Right at "toasts you made"]


               E
Like some dead relative
           G#m                  G
You will remember me most by my funeral
            B                      E
And all the beautiful toasts you made
              G#m
Take back the spade
                G                                B
We've both been filling up our days like we were filling in a grave

[PIANO INTERLUDE]
Guitar 1 kinda starts scratching along near the end of this interlude
Then...

Guitar 1 End
e|--------------------3-3-2-2--|
B|--------------------3-3-3-3--|
G|--4-4-4-4--7-7-7-7--0-0-2-2--|
D|--------------------0-0-0-0--|  x6
A|--2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5--2-2------|
E|--------------------3-3------|


Guitar 2 End
e|--------------------------------|
B|--/12---10---7-10-7-------------|
G|--------------------7-7/9--7----|   x9
D|-----------------------------7--|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

It also sounds as if Guitar 2 slides down to 2 on the G
at the end of the riff sometimes, instead of playing the
A note on the D

Guitar 3 plays overtop on the 4th time Guitar 1 plays
There is some improvisation with the riff as Dan repeats it...

Guitar 3 End
e|----------------------------------------------x--2---2--|
B|----10h12-10---7-10-7---10h12--10--7-10-7-----x--3---3--|
G|----------------------7-------------------7---x--2---2--|   x4
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

End backing riff (this is then followed by chords, which are
marked with the lyrics):

e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|--4--4--4--4-4-6--7--7--7--7--|
D|------------------------------|
A|--2--2--2--2-2-4--5--5--5--5--|
E|------------------------------|

[Riff]
  You let me hang, hang, hang around
G              D 
  You put your ribbons in my hair
[Riff]
  It's in this language that I found

I am an animal in your care

G    D               G                  D
