Slow Show Chords - The National




The National - Slow Show, from the album "Boxer", one of the best releases this year.

I like to play this with a capo because it sounds nicer, but if you prefer to play 
one, then:
Am = C#m (x46654)
Am7 = C#m7 (x46454)
F = A (567755)
C = E (x79997)
G = B (799877)
Em = G#m (466444)
D = F#m (244222) or (x91010119)


Capo Fret 4 - All chords relative to capo

Listen to the song for the rhythm.

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
cant pay attention to the sound of anyone
a little more stupid, a little more scared
every minute more unprepared

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

I made a mistake in my life today
everything I love gets lost in drawers
I want to start over, I want to be winning
way out of sync from the beginning

C
I wanna hurry home to you
FAm
put on a slow, dumb show for you
G
and crack you up
   C     F
so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
   Am
god Im very, very frightening
G
Ill overdo it

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C G

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away
Can I get a minute of not being nervous
and not thinking of my dick

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
I better get my s**t together, better gather my s**t in
You could drive a car through my head in five minutes
from one side of it to the other

C
I wanna hurry home to you
FAm
put on a slow, dumb show for you
G
and crack you up
   C     F
so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
   Am
god Im very, very frightening
G
Ill overdo it

C F Am G

Em G D C (Cmaj7)*

Em    G
You know I dreamed about you
D     C
for twenty-nine years before I saw you
Em    G
You know I dreamed about you
D
I missed you for
C
for twenty-nine years

Em    G
You know I dreamed about you
D     C
for twenty-nine years before I saw you
Em    G
You know I dreamed about you
D
I missed you for
C
for twenty-nine years

Em G D C
Em G D C

*(Right after the C in the last part, I like to play Cmaj7 (032000). I don't think they 
it that way, but it can sound nice. End the song on a C though.)
