Little Birds Chords

   
Little Birds by Neutral Milk Hotel
lovely, intense, and unreleased; post Aeroplane tune
standard tuning

intro: Am


Am
Little birds born without a mother or a father

I can watch their bodies forming in the running water
G
Now there is another in the middle of my mouth
Em
A hundred altogether within me now
Am
Little bird, little bird come into my body

Am
Mother, they're within me every moment I'm awaking

Bodies multiplying 'til they finally overtake me
G
Open up my mouth but all you'll ever hear is singing
Em
Put you hand within me and you'll know what I'm feeling
Am
I just want to swallow up and promise to protect them

Am
Daddy come to touch me but he seen his hands a shaking

Look into my eyes and he could see their bodies breaking
G
Push me to the floor and in his hands I started beating
Em
I don't want to hear it anymore, he kept repeating
Am
Do you really want the burning hell that we believe in?

Am
Did you know the burning hell it took your baby brother?
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/neutral_milk_hotel/little_birds_crd.html ]
Did you see how far he fell and how he made us suffer?
G
Another boy in town at night he took him for his lover
    Em
And deep in sin they held each other
Am
So I took a hammer and nearly beat his little brains in

Knowing God in heaven would have, never could forgive him
                                                G         Em
So I took a hammer and I nearly beat his brains in

Am
Little boy born without a father or a mother
Am
Taken to the river and then pushed into the water
G
And the priests are singing that the hell is getting hotter la la la la la
Am
Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the only one to save him

From the thing he loves the most but we know will betray him

Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the only one to save him
                                                         G
From the thing he loves the most but we know will betray him

Am                   G
And here beneath the water I can see
        Em                Am
How the lights distort so strange
                         G                      Em            
And I think this is how I would like to leave my body
          Am
And start again
