I think they write great lyrics.

Artist: The Decemberists
Song: Calamity Song
Album: The King Is Dead
Tabbed by: Don Tago
Email: recebedou@yahoo.com



Intro: C - G


Verse 1:
C G
Had a dream, you and me and the war at the end times
C G
And I believe California succumbed to the fault line
G F
We heaved relief as scores of innocents die


Chorus 1:
F C F C
And the Andalusian tribe, setting the lay of Nebraska alight
G F
Until all that remains is the arms of the angels


Verse 2: [use verse 1 chords]
Petty green, queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab, you know what I mean
On the road, its well advised to follow your own bed
In the year of the chewable Ambien tab


Chorus 2:
F C F C
And the Panamanian child, stands at the Dowager Empresses side
G F
Until all that remains is the arms of the angels
C G F
'til all that remains is the arms of the angels
C F C F
Ah-hooo, ah-hooo girl, ah-hooo, ah-hoooo girl


Bridge:
Dm G Dm G
You've receded in to loam, and their picking at your bones
F C G
We'll call home, we'll come home


Verse 3: [use verse 1 chords]
Quiet now, will we gather to conger the rain down?
Will we now build a civilization below ground? And I'll be crowned
The community kicked it around


Chorus 3: [use chorus 2 chords]
And the Andalusian tribe, setting the lay of Nebraska alight
Until all that remains is the arms of the angels
'til all that remains is the arms of the angels
Ah-hooo, ah-hooo girl, ah-hooo, ah-hoooo girl
Ah-hooo, ah-hooo girl, ah-hooo, ah-hoooo girl

Still Truckin', I agree, The Decemberists definitely write great lyrics. Calamity Song was a good song you quoted also. 8)
