Emmylou by Wye Oak
Album:  My Neighbor/My Creator
Tuning:  DADGDC (capo on 1st fret)

This could be wrong, but there are no live videos so I had to do it by ear and the
guitar is a bit covered in the mix.  There's a quick little changing thing Jenn does on the
Bmaj9, so I'm just going to call each stage of it Bmaj9 (x) and I'll denote when to go 
through them (e.g "Bmaj9(1-3)") and when to just play one of them.  You'll figure it out
what I mean if you listen to the song.

Fret numbers are not relative to the capo.

Lyrics and chords:



 C#maj9                       Bmaj9(1)        (2) (3)
Try to live like this forever love my mom and not upset her

 F#maj9                 Ebm9
Even my ambition had to write itself in blood


 C#maj9                            Bmaj9(1)          (2) (3)
Yeah, I know, it sounded right and helped my mother sleep at night

 F#maj9                 Ebm9
But everything to everyone to you wasn't enough




Chorus:


C#maj9
You

          Bmaj9(1)
Could see through

        F#maj9
I could too

    Ebm9
Emmylou



Verse 2:


 C#maj9                    Bmaj9(1)       (2) (3)
All the love I have in me I understand how I could be

 F#maj9                   Ebm9
A terrible example when I take my own advice


C#maj9                       Bmaj9(1)    (2) (3)
I am not the victim here and I am not the enemy

 F#maj9                       Ebm9
So I did not divide for you a face to place your sympathy




 C#maj9                 Bmaj9(1)         (2) (3)
I'll do any fantasy and nothing like you seem to be

 F#maj9                       Ebm9
I know this from the agony because I don't know how




 C#maj9                       Bmaj9(1)      (2)(3)
I believe in common sense and meaningless coincidence

 F#maj9                            Ebm9
But I don't believe in heaven so I have to have you now




Chorus


Outro (same chords as verse; harmonica solo)


Thanks!  I hope someone else loves this song as much as I do.
