Artist: Sufjan Stevens
 Album: All Delighted People EP
  Song: From the Mouth of Gabriel

[http://www.indieguitartabs.com/bands/sufjan_stevens/from_the_mouth_of_gabriel.html]

Tabbed by: Nrvous (y.wakeham@ugrad.unimelb.edu.au)

I suggest playing around with different strumming/picking styles to
differentiate the various sections of the song. The actual track mixes up
instrumentation and dynamics, so just listen to it to get a feel for which
sections should be loud and which soft, etc.

Enjoy!

Bb       Gm                F            D
Desperate measures lead to death

                  Bb
From the mouth of Gabriel

                Gm
Who died in his sleep when the world

      F	               D
was a very big mess, a very big mess;

F          E
He saw too much



D        G         C     F
From now on I will look away from every accident

     E
That may or may not come my way



Am           G
Saw you were talking

C
up above the Aleph room

G
Masquerading as a loom

Am         G
Both of us saw things

C
No one else would see as well

G
From the mouth of Gabriel

C
No one else would hear as well

G
From the mouth of Gabriel

From the mouth of Gabriel

From the mouth of Gabriel

E
From the mouth of Gabriel



A        D          G        C
Don't be so sure of what you feel (it might as well be trouble)

A        D                        G       C
From now on just let the universe be your shelter from the enemy



A       Bm      D       E

A    Bm
Your face has changed

  D                   E	            A
I hardly know who you are this time

    Bm
And what a mess

     D          E
I've made of you

             A                 Bm      D        E
You probably would but I won't let you run away

             A                  Bm      D        E        A/C#
You probably should but I won't let you run away this time

      A/B          A         A/G#  A/F#	     A/E
Don't be afraid of loneliness some refugee beside itself

  A/F#                  A/G#
Instead of what you've got

             A/C#              A/B     A        A/G#
You probably would but I won't let you go away

             A/F#               A/E     A/F#   A/G#     F#m
You probably should but I won't let you go away	this time



     E
Your face has changed

  D                   E	          F#m
I hardly know who you are this time

    E             D           E
And when I came into your room

                A
You tried to jump



      Bm           E               A
Now I know this is strange to hear from the mouth of God 

   D             E                 A
It was something like a scene from mars

     Bm	              E	        A
In a struggle between loves and lies

                   D            E               A
The angel kept his face covered for to keep his word

            Bm              E            A
And while I spoke something left from my life

                 D
Forget about the past

      E	                    A
Be at rest I'll make things right

            Bm          E               A
And while I held you at best you nearly died

                 D
Forget about the past

         E                  F#m
And I'll try to make things right
