EVERYTHING IS - Neutral Milk Hotel
Tabbed by: nolanwalker93
E-mail: nolanwalker93@mail.com

Tuning: Standard

The versions I saw from this didn't seem correct. This is how he plays it live, 
according to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7xUvoIWC-4


B (x2444x@1)              Ee|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| (022100@1)B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


(Just use B: X244XX and E: 0122XX, the intro pattern isn't done here)
B (x2444x@1)               EGrowing (022100@1)sleepy as the rain falls
B (x2444x@1)                                  EAs (022100@1)children draped in flowers form a chain
B (x2444x@1)                                  EThey (022100@1)sing a song with jelly jars and bird calls
B (x2444x@1)                              EAs (022100@1)night falls into dust and its day again
B (x2444x@1)                                                EI'm (022100@1)not afraid of a love parade in my daydream
B (x2444x@1)                                        EOld (022100@1)men with kazoos and beating drums

B (x2444x@1)                                                EBut (022100@1)I awake and I see the streets are ice cream
B (x2444x@1)                                     E (022100@1)                         BIts (x2444x@1)just you and me and oh dear, our life has just begun

CHORUS (Its good to use full basic Chords here to give a more full sound. the 
timing can be a bit tricky, but playing along makes it easy.):

B (x2444x@1)     E (022100@1)                     B (x2444x@1)       Everything is beautiful here
B (x2444x@1)     E (022100@1)                            B (x2444x@1)       Its spinning circles 'round my ear
B (x2444x@1)     E (022100@1)                            B (x2444x@1)    
        I'm finally breaking free from fear

(Strike E once, then mute and strum a few times. Listen to the song to get the timing)

EAnd (022100@1)its fading

   B (x2444x@1)              Ee|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| (022100@1)B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 2:
B (x2444x@1)                  EOh (022100@1)beautiful smiles, won't you stay a while?
B (x2444x@1)                                  EWe (022100@1)could close the door and sleep all day
B (x2444x@1)                              EIt's (022100@1)a September smile, with pretty pictures in my mind
B (x2444x@1)                     EThat's (022100@1)lost its feeling and its so afraid


VERSE (Same lyrics and everything. The "Oh ah woah" part follows the B, E pattern)

CHORUS, then fade out...

This song rocks, Neutral Milk Hotel is awesome, I love this band to death and all 
that jazz. Hope this is helpful. My timing is off in places, but hey, its not too 
difficult to figure out. Happy jamming!
