The Avalanche Tab

More Sufjan Stevens Tabs

Artist: Sufjan Stevens
 Album: The Avalanche
  Song: The Avalanche

Tabbed by: "Buzz" (

The actual finger picking for this song isn't hard to figure out.
There are a few hammer-ons and pull offs around the Am and C chords.

And for the "Come on, Stone.." part there is a hint of D Major, so what 
I do is very discretely play a few D Major chords every so often. But its
up to you.

Capo on 1st Fret

Dsus2     Am      
I call ye cabin neighbors

F        C
I call you once my friends

Dsus2     Am
But I trust when you labor

    F        C
And put my head to rest

Dsus2        Am
But I was on the hatch

F            C
I was on the avalanche

Dsus2        Am
And I had found my match

F            C
I was on the floor

Dsus2        Am
I took a train from Virginia

F            C
To Illinois, my home

Dsus2      Am
He said .I knew you had it in ya"

F         C
A mind to make its own

Dsus2        Am
But I was on the hatch

F         C
Riding on the avalanche

Dsus2         Am
I tried to take it back

F          C
I was on the floor

Come on, Stone!
Come on, Star!
Come on, Snow!
Come on, Car!
Come on, Hands!
Come on, Feet!
Come on, Face!
Come on, Street!
Come on, State!
Come on, Song!
Move it fast! (Take it up)
Move it along! (The Ohio River)
Come on, Life! (Take it up)
Come on, Lord! (Take it over)
Make it right! (To the Mississippi)
Make it Yours!
