Alt-J - Taro Guitar Chords

Alt-J

indie rock

Song versions: 1 2 3
Chords: Dm, C, Gm, F, Cm, Bb
This great song is fairly easy if you know that it's built upon two sets of chords
that alternate until the end. The main set is Dm C Gm F and the other one
(which I couldn't find to be accurate, so I submitted this version) is Cm Gm Bb F

Verse 1
  Dm C Gm     F                Dm                    C
Indo - china, Capa jumps Jeep, two feet creep up the road
Gm        F         Dm        C
To photo, to record meat lumps and war,
Gm              F               Cm Gm Bb
They advance as does his chance oh 
F                    Dm    C
 very yellow white flash.
Gm          F                       Dm                      C
  A violent wrench grips mass, rips light, tears limbs like rags,
Gm                F
Burst so high finally Capa lands, 
Dm               C    Gm              F
Mine is a watery pit. Painless with immense distance
     Cm                    Gm
From medic from colleague, friend, enemy,
         Bb                  F              Dm C Gm F Dm C Gm F
foe, him five yards from his leg, From you Taro.
Cm           Gm          Bb                 F          Dm C Gm F
Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.

Verse 2
  Dm C Gm  F                 Dm                          C            
3:10   pm, Capa pends death, quivers, last rattles, last chokes
    Gm                F              Dm                         C
All colours and cares glaze to grey, shrivelled and stricken to dots,
Gm                        F               Cm Gm Bb F
Left hand grasps what the body grasps not oh 
                    Dm   C
le photographe est mort.
Gm  F     Dm                 C     Gm                     F
 3.1415, alive no longer my amour, faded for home May of '54
      Dm                C    Gm               F
Doors open like arms my love, Painless with a great closeness
   Cm                 Gm
To Capa, to Capa Capa dark after nothing,
    Bb             F                  Dm C Gm F Dm C Gm F
re-united with his leg and with you, Taro.
    Cm Gm Bb F  Cm Gm Bb F
Tar-oh----
Cm           Gm          Bb                 F            Dm C Gm F
Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.
Dm C Gm F

Dm Dm Gm F        Dm C Gm F
         Hey Taro!
Dm C Gm F
