                     off the Jean the Birdman cd single
Starts off with a D chord. Intro (riff 1) goes something like this:

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/david_sylvian/earthbound_crd.html ]
D               A
   A black crow standing
G              A
   On a sea of shells
D                   A
   She's blessed by magic
           G                 A
   And the sound of libery's bells
G                 D
   I'll raise the curfew

       Bm  D      A*     G
   And set by her door
   Em                 A          D & Riff 1
   She's been through this world before

the chords are the same for the second verse.
verse 3:
Bm                 A
   She's giving me questions
       Em        A
   And quizzical looks

G                  D
   She tears up my papers
       Em    D      A
   And burns all my books
C                C
   They gave her nothing
       Em     D       A*
   She didn't already know
   Em            A        D & Riff 1
   She's getting ready to go

* means hold chord for 2 bars
the song repeats after this, with 2 on one off. meaning to say, the first set
of chords for 2 verses and then the second set of chords for the next (third)
verse. please personally e-mailed with questions and/or corrections. enjoy.
