			     Tables and Chairs - Andrew Bird
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: rvaen

the glory of this song is not in the guitar, but in the singing along. beautiful,
song. Of course, I recommend listening to the song to make sense of this tab. Nothing
for listening to the artist.
Tuning: standard

Here are the two different progressions that occur after riff 4:
   A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramA#A# A chord diagramA augmentedA     A chord diagramD MajorD  DM7  A chord diagramB minorBm  A chord diagramG+G
e|-2---0--0---|-2---2---2---3------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|-3---3--2---|-3---2---3---0------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramG+G|-2---3--2---|-2---2---4---0------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|-0---3--2---|-0---0---4---0------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|-----0--0---|---------2---2------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|--------------------------3------------------------------------------------------------|

NOTE: i am unsure of which type of DM7 and A chord diagramG+G he uses. it may just as easily be:
   A chord diagramD MajorD  DM7 A chord diagramB minorBm A chord diagramG+G
e|-2--2---2--3---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|-3--3---3--3---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramG+G|-2--2---4--4---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|-0--0---4--5---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|----4---2--5---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|-----------3---------------------------------------------------------------------|

in this scenario, the DM7 is a tad trickier, but sounds better, i think.
I wrote out the A chord diagramG+G as a bar chord because i can't tell from the recording which he uses,
they both work equally well.

[1]
if we can call them friends we can call them on red telephones
[1]
and they won't pretend that they're too busy or they're not alone
[2]
if we can call them friends we can call
[2]
holler at 'em down these hallowed halls
[2]
but we can't let the human factor fail to be a factor at all

[3]
don't
don't you worry
          [3]
about the atmosphere
or any sudden pressure change

          [3]
'cause I know
that it's starting
        [3]
to get warm in here
and things are
                 [3]
starting to get strange

        [3]
and did you
did you see how
         [3]
all our friends were there
drinkin' roses from the can

[3]
how
how I wish I
      [3]
I had talked to them
and wished they
             [3]
fit into my plan
