Dm7 A -000213

Dm7 B -003210

The strumming pattern throughout is pretty basic. I think the slow intro (and outro) is actually on mandolin, but you can easily play it on guitar if you wanna play the song solo, maybe strumming softly with your thumb, then switch to a pick when it gets fast. As a brief note to avoid confusion, I put the chords to play *under* the corresponding lyrics, *not* over.

Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

Light up with me my dear, Dm7Light Dm13up. Dm7 B Dm13

Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

Un------der   stormy  night, tell     no-----body.

Dm7 A Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13 Dm7 A Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13 Dm7

Then things speed up for the verse and continue the same Dm chord pattern Dm7(a) Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13 x2 My brother where do you intend to go tonight? Dm7I heard that you Dm13missed your conDm7nectBing flight, Dm13 ToDm7 the blue ridgeDm13 mountains, over nDm7ear BTennesseeDm13.

Gm7

Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

You're ever welcome with me any time you like, Dm7Let's drive to theDm13 country side, lDm7eaveB behind some gDm13reen-eyed look-a-likes, So no Dm7one gets worrDm13ied, no. Dm7 B Dm13 Gm7 So no one gets worried, no. Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

Gm7 Dm7 Dm13 Dm7 B Dm13

But Sean don't get callous, I'm Gm7sure it'll be fDm7ine. I loGm7ve you, I love youDm7, OhCadd9 brother of Bmine.

Then a Bb chord is strummed for awhile while the piano and mandolin do their thing In the quivering forest, Where tBhe shivering dog rests, I will do Cadd9it grandfather, Wilt toB wood and end. And the FM13river got frozen, And the Bhole got snowed in, And nearCadd9 the moon glow ride, TillB the morning light.

FM13

Terrible am I child? BEven if you don'tCadd9 mind, BIn the quivering forCadd9est, Where tBhe shivering dog rests, I will do Cadd9it grandfather, Wilt toB wood and end. And the FM13river got frozen, And the Bhole got snowed in, And nearCadd9 the moon glow ride, TillB the morning light.

B Cadd9

Then it plays the slow intro again And that's it! Definitely not your typical folk song, but once you get over the weird chords it's not too hard. Good luck! This took a lot of work, so you best appreciate it! It's a beautiful song (as all of Fleet Foxes' songs are) and is very fun to play once you get it down.
