Fee Chords

Phish - Fee
Tabbed By: Taylor Gillespie

Phish-Fee....Love is this song. Decided to work it out. You may need
to look up the chords. Have fun, and keep playing!
The rythem is something like a palm muted strum and then a clean strum
on each chord.

       Cm               Abm
In the cool shade of a banana tree
        Bbm                      Gbm
On the rugged trail towards the balcony
   Gbm7                  Db
A child of the twentieth century
A dried up goliath and a weasel named Fee

(same chords for each verse)
Far away in another place 
A fading beauty named Milly Grace
A gospel singer with pocks on her face
And a bamboo cane to help her keep the pace

Fee was a buddhist prodigy
Long past the age of maturity
Someday he knew it would set him free
Like it did for Floyd the chimpanzee


Eb  Bb          Db
Oh, Fee you're trying to live a life
Thats completly free
You're racing with the wind 
You're flirting with death
So have a cup of coffe 
And catch your breath

Piano solo after the chorus:

[ Tab from: ]
Fee first met Milly in a bar in Peru
His heart was jumping like a kangaroo
Like a beast in a cage in an old Dutch zoo
It was hopping and jumping in wooden shoes

But Floyd was jealous and alone
He wanted Milly for his one
A desperate craving in his bones
"Thier love," he said "I Will not condone."

Then one day on a ship to quebec
Floyd found Fee,and Milly on a lover's trek
He picked up a bottle and broke off the neck
It sliced through the air and Fee hit the deck

Oh, Fee, you're trying to live a life 
That's completely free
You want to so stay with Milly 
Until you're dead 
But you just got a bottle 
Upside your head

Milly turned and began to scream at Floyd
She said "You think you're pretty mean"
And though she was a thin as a small string bean
She slammed him in the face with a nectarine

Floyd fell back over the edge of the ship
Until he hung by the rail by his fingertip
Milly said "Floyd i'll make you lose your grip
With this tiny peice of paper i will make you slip

So Milly took the paper and did the deed
Floyd hit the water with astonishing speed
And as the sharks circled in and began to feed
Milly knew her weasel was finally freed

Oh, Fee, you're trying to live a life
That's completely free
Floyd is dead; he's nothing but a ripple
Cause Milly took that paper and sliced him on the nippleMuch Credit to David Douglas McCallum.

When recorded in Junta, they played this in a different key. Since then
they have dropped it one step lower and is the reason for all the flats.
