Down To The Ark

--tabbed by Mike/howardfinkel483

Notes: this is a guitar tab of an all-piano song, obv. not going to sound the same. 
Can tab out the little licks another time maybe. For the chorus, you want to hit the Am-G-F, 
going down from the 12th fret to try and emulate the piano as best as you can.

C  Am Dm  F  G

C                                    Am
The candidates met up in North Dakota
Dm                                 F                     G
And they donned their black robes there in the chapel hall
                 C                      Am
They said a brief invocation to their cloven-hoofed prince
Dm                               F                      G
And they signed their names in blood on the vestry wall

C  Am Dm  F  G

C                                              Am
In Christ you know there's neither high nor low
Dm                          F                       G
And the void will claim all creatures small or bright
C                         Am
Seal up the borders or let everybody in
Dm                                       F                     G
In the order of the serpent, there'll be neither left nor right

        Am G               F       
And we pull down our blindfolds
Am                G                F
reach out for the lever in the dark
Dm                          C        E7            F
Get a sticker for our shirts as we head into the sun
Am G                    F 
Proudly bearing the mark
G                    C
Headed down to the ark

C  Am Dm  F  G

C                                   Am
The applicants went down to Oklahoma
Dm                                F                         G
And they hired an accent coach to teach 'em the western twang
C                                             Am
And several post-born babies learned the hard way:
Dm                                  F                  G
Vampires only kiss you when they've sharpened up their fangs, Yeah!

C  Am Dm  F  G

C                                      Am
And as Minnesota fell, so went Missouri
Dm                   F            G
We were meeting at VFWs in the snow
C                                       Am
And we voted down the tax codes, and we voted down the war
Dm                            F               G
So many names to choose from, just one way to go. 

        Am G              F       
And we pull down our blindfolds
Am                G                F
reach out for the lever in the dark
Dm                          C        E7            F
Get a sticker for our shirts as we head into the sun
Am G                    F 
Proudly bearing the mark
G                    C
Headed down to the ark

C  Am Dm  F  G - End on C
