                     A-Punk Acoustic - Vampire Weekend
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rhys.J 
Email: rhys.jenkins@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: Standard 

I've tabbed this song out so all part of the song, 
including the chorus, can be played on guitar. 
It doesn't have to be on an acoustic, but sounds nice. 
I hope you enjoy  :)

Verse 1

Johanna drove slowly into the city
The Hudson River all filled with snow
She spied the ring on his honor’s finger
Oh oh oh

A thousand years in one piece of silver
She took it from his lily white hand
Showed no fear she’d seen the thing
In the young men’s wing at Sloan-Kettering


Chorus

Look outside at the raincoats coming, say oh!
His honor drove southward seeking exotica
Down to the Pueblo huts of New Mexico
Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas
Oh oh oh 


Verse 2

I saw Johanna down in the subway
She took an apartment in Washington Heights
Half of the ring lies here with me
But the other half’s at the bottom of the sea


That's everything, e-mail me if you have any queries :)
