Going to Bogota

-tabbed by quinna@lafayette.edu



These are the notes that play throughout the verse, with no thought given to their rhythm.  If the single notes sound a bit bare to you, fill in the
rest of a G chord while emphasizing the lower notes.

G Riff:
E	
B	
G	
D	
A       2 — 2 —               3 - 3 — 2 - 2 - 2
E                3 - 3 - 3 -

G Riff             D
I know what I want and I know what we need
G Riff                               D
When the first fruits of the harvest begin to blacken and bleed
G Riff                                           D
And the purple fruit gives way when you press it even so slightly
G Riff                                                        D
And through the thatches behind the green leaves we heard the fire-eyed macaw sing as evil as you please

                      A   D
And his little song
                 G       D    A
is a very pretty song
                           D
But it's something I won't stand for

               A     G           D
And as the sun rises over Columbia
  A          D
I know we're done for


G Riff
When the holes started forming in the tent
D
And you wondered out loud where the sunlight went
G Riff
I had a mind to tell you
D
But I didn't want to hurt you

                A   D
And if I knew
                G       D  A
how to form the words
                           D
I would ask you what you'd come for

But as the sun rises over Columbia
I know we're done for

Yeah, as the sun rises over Columbia
I know we're done for
As the sun rises over Columbia
I know we're done for
