Farrar Straus And Giroux Chords

   
Destroyer is Dan Bejar, one of the New Pornographers (usually referred to as "indie
supergroup New Pornographers" and then followed by a mention of Neko Case). There aren't
any chords/tabs for Destroyer songs online, which is just ridiculous; the man can write
rock songs (or, in the case of "Farrar, Straus & Giroux (Sea of Tears)," melancholy
pop/country songs) like nobody's business, and who doesn't like to rock out, now and
again, in the grand indie style? Having said that, I hope I've been rocking (or popping)
appropriately to this song. 


D

			F#m
It was back amongst the living
		Bm
Your smile was giving 
	G
Me a thrill
		D
Enough to come so close
		F#m
To closing the deal

The steal of the century
Bm
A century stolen from our hearts 
		G
To a house on the hill


			A
But if that is what it takes
			G
If that is what it takes
			A	G-Bm-G-Bm-G
If that is what it takes
	D
To be a stone

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/destroyer/farrar_straus_and_giroux_crd.html ]
			F#m
A stone's throw from your throne
		Bm
No man has ever hung 
			    G
From the rafters of a second home
		D
No man has ever hung
			F#m
From the rafters of a second home

Bm

G


	D
It's true 
	   F#m
I needed you more
		Bm
Back when I was poor
				G
The wealthy dowager, the patroness

She guessed it

The answer wasn't yes
D
But her maxims were fine
			F#m
The ethos that flew about her mind
	Bm
Like swallows in search
		G
Of a burnt-down bell tower church
	

			A
But if that is what it takes
			G
If that is what it takes 
			A	G-Bm-G-Bm-G
If that is what it takes
	D
To be a stone


			F#m
A stone's throw from your throne
		Bm
No man has ever hung
				G
At the temporary age of twenty-four
				
(With) both feet on the floor
D					F#m
Listening to the bona fide stasis of sound

The eaves dripping
Bm				G
Yesterday's ill-timed August rain
		D				F#m
If there is such a thing as ill-timed August rain 

Bm

G

D-F#m-Bm-G (x2)

D
