Banshee Beat Tab

More Animal Collective Tabs

Artist: Animal Collective
 Album: Feels
  Song: Banshee Beat

Tabbed by: Chris G

Two chords, standard tuning:

 Emaj         F#m/A
e--x--        e--x-- 
B--x--        B--x--
G--1--        G--2--
D--2--        D--4--
A--2--        A--4--
E--0--        E--5--

Note:
The first part of the song is just the Emaj, then as the song builds the two 
chords alternate.  The F#m can also be played without the A bass note, but I think 
it sounds a lot better with that in there, it yields a country thing.  (some tabs 
say it alternates between E and A, I respectfully disagree).


There'll be time to get by to get dry after the swimming pool
There'll be time to just cry i wonder why it didnt work out
Therell be time to fish fry for letters by yours truly
Yours truly

Someone in my dictionary's up to no good
I never find the very special words I should
So I have another party with a water glass
and I sit on all your actions its a birthing game
and I'll bet he needs a shower cause hes just like me
and the soldiers in the painting know your secret face
Well your parrot told me just how I can make you smile
Gonna let you do your thinking if you need awhile
but what I gave you made him get mad
A little bit funny how a thing like that
Could travel from one mouth in through another
and the next thing you know you gotta hear it from your brother and
The words they sting like a stump of old wasps
Remember when I said go throw the rock in there
and we ran through the woods to our good house
You forgot about the things that he could say like
I dont think that I like you anymore
Well I found new feelings at the feeling store
and I cant find you at our kissing place
and im scared of those new pair of eyes you have

So I duck out and go down to find the swimming pool
Hop a fence, leave the street and wet my feet I'll find a swimming pool
Cause when I'm snuffed out I doubt I'll find a swimming pool
Hop a fence, leave the street and wet my feet I'll find a swimming pool

But I don't wish that I was dead
A very old friend of mine once said
that either way you look at it you have your fits
I have my fits but feeling is good
confusions not a kiddney stone in my brain
but if were miscommunicating do we feel the same?
Then either way you look at it you have your fits
I have my fits but feeling is good

You gotta give a little you gotta get a little bit
