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

In Christ you know there's neither high nor low
And the void will claim all creatures small or bright
Seal up the borders or let everybody in
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

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

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

And we pull down our blindfolds
Reach out for the lever in the dark
Get a sticker for our shirts as we head into the sun
Proudly bearing the mark
Headed down to the ark
