Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues Chords

Intro: E0
0
1Verse:
E1
2I was raised up believing
      A2
3I was somehow unique
       B3
4Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
   A4                       E5
5Unique in each way you can see
6
7Verse:
E6
8And now after some thinking
    A7
9I'd say I'd rather be
  B8
A9 functioning cog in some great machinery
 A10                       E11
10Serving something beyond me
11
12Chorus:
E12                                        A13
13But I don't, I don't know what that will be
         E14                       A15         E16
14I'll get back to you someday soon you will see
15
16Verse:
E17
17What's my name, what's my station
        A18
18Oh just tell me what I should do
        B19
19I don't need to be kind to the armies of night
           A20                    E21
20That would do such injustice to you
21
22Verse:
E22
23Or bow down and be grateful
         A23
24And say "Sure take all that you see"
       B24
25To the men who move only in dimly-lit halls
       A25                    E26
26And determine my future for me
27
28Chorus:
E27                                     A28
29And I don't, I don't know who to believe
         E29                     A30           E31
30I'll get back to you someday soon you will see
31
32Verse:
E32
33If I know only one thing
          A33
34It's that every thing that I see
       B34
35Of the world outside is so inconceivable
A35                  E36
36Often I barely can speak
37
38Yeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
      A37
39And I can't keep it to myself
      B38
40What good is it to sing helplessness blues?
           A39                 E40
41Why should I wait for anyone else?
42
43Chorus:
E41                                          A42
44And I know, I know you will keep me on the shelf
          E43                    A44       E45
45I'll come back to you someday soon myself

56And soon run the store
57
58
E62                 A63
