I know I'm a terrible beggar when it comes to asking for chords from y'all, and I wouldn't except that I suck at figuring them out.

Anyone?? Bueller??

As a matter of a fact, I wonder if we'll have a definitive chord collection from OR *and* SW at some point? That would be the butter shite.

Try these:

Code:
G               D               C     Am       C
Claire lives up on Saint Mary's walk, with her mother.
And I live down on Philomel, by the harbor,

     D          G C
 and I hate the ocean.
 and I hate the ocean.
 and I hate the ocean.

Well, Claire says she'd throw me overboard, then that she loves me,
and then she kisses me on mouth, and says I'm ugly,

 and I hear the ocean
 and I hear the ocean
 and I hear the ocean
     D          G C   Am
 and I hear the ocean roar.

 G D C Am C
 G D C Am C
 D
 G C D
 G C C

The water pulls around the pier, dark and rusted,
and I know the kindest face with a sailor's eyes still can't be trusted.

 But I feel the ocean
 But I feel the ocean
 But I feel the ocean swell.


@Anjy: I'm working on it.

I did it.
I made the first, one and only,
(unofficial) <a href="http://en.23inch.de/text/tabs/orssb.html">okkervil river & shearwater songbook</a> containing all tabs and chords I were able to find or make by myself.

So long.
Siro

So long

Damn, I'd missed this thread! A whole songbook - cool! (Cool, and bookmarked.)

There's a version of Blanket and Crib here. I'll attempt to do Never Come Again (off Sham Wedding/Hoax Funeral) when I've got half an hour to spare, along with a load more SW stuff, and somewhere I've got half of Song About A Star. I'll make sure Siro gets what I've done so far if I ever find it again.

Siro...have you figured out the chords to this part yet (to St. Mary's Walk)?
