Milk Thistle - Conor Oberst (and the Mystic Valley Band) I started posting corrections on the other tab then decided I had enough to do a new Go down and read what I mean by B11 first because I don?t know the real chord name. CAPO: 4th Fret Intro: C D C D G C D Em C D C D Milk thistle, milk thistle, C D G Let me down slow, C D Em Help me go slow, C D I've been carryin' on, C G I'm not scared of nothin', C G I'll go pound for pound, C G I keep death on my mind, C D Like a heavy crown. C D If I go to heaven, C D I'll be bored as hell, C D Like a little baby, Am G At the bottom of a well. (At the end of a verse hammer on to the 3rd fret of the A string ? so when you get to you play the bass string (E:-3-) then hammer on (A:-2h3-) then play the bass string again it?s really simple and obvious when you listen to the song.) C D Fair child, fair child, C D G How are you man? C D Em Did you fix that storefront? C D Did you start that band? C G Don't be scared of nothin', C G You go pound for pound, C G You'll bring peace to midnight, C D Like a spotted owl. C D I'll be rootin' for you, C D Like my favourite team, C D If somebody sweats you, Am G You just point 'em out to me. (Same hammering on as in the first verse) (This next bit, along with most of the C Em Am parts is just the A string (A: -3-2-0- )) C Em Am All the sights and sounds, B11 This little world's too crowded now, C** D G (Hammering as usual) And there's only one way out. C Em Am An elevator ride, B11 Through the tunnel towards the light, C** D G (Hammering) And I?m nowhere bound, C Em D Keep going up and down, C Em G (H) Up and down. C D Newspaper, newspaper C D G Can't take no more, C D Em You're here every morning, C D Waitin' at my door. C G I'm just tryin' to kiss you, C G And you stab my eyes, C G Make me blue forever, C D Like an Island sky. C D And I'm not pretending, C D That it's all okay, C D Just let me have my coffee, Am G (Hammering) Before you take away the day. C D Lazarus, Lazarus, C D G Why all the tears? C D Em Did your faithful chauffer C D Just disappear? C G What a lonesome feeling, C G To be just waitin' round, C G Like some washed up actress, C D In a Tinseltown. C D But for the record, C D I'd come pick you up, C D We'll head for the ocean, Am G (Hammering) Just say when you've had enough. C Em Am All the light and sound, B11 This little world's too fragile now, C** D G (Hammering) And there's only one way out. C Em Am But if you let me slide, B11 I'll do my best to make things right, C** D G (Hammering) And I?m nowhere bound, C Em D Keep going up and down, C Em G Up and down. C D Milk thistle, milk thistle, C D G Let me down slow, C D Em Just help me go slow, C D I've been hurrying on. C G I was poised for greatness, C G I was down and out C G I keep death at my heels C D Like a basset hound C D If I go to heaven, C D I'll be bored as hell, C D Like a crying baby, Am G (No hammering) At the bottom of a well. Notes: B11 - I?m not sure the real chord name so I?ll tab it out instead. E|--- A|-2- D|-1- G|-2- B|-0- e|-0- C** - In the live version I have on video at this point after a brief strum he plays: E|-------------| A|-------------| D|-------0h2p0-| G|-0h2p0-------| B|-------------| e|-------------| But on the album version he doesn?t so it?s a nice variation to include if you want.
