My Sad Captains

	  		From the album The Take Off and Landing of Everything. One of Elbow's finest  
songs. My first tab and nobody had done one yet, so here you go, Elbow fans. Play  
along on acoustic and impress the ladies/gentlemen. 

Tuning: Standard 

Intro: G (for a few bars) then G (2 bars), Em, C, (1 bar each) then back to G. I think it's in simple 4/4 if that helps anyone. 

G               
I'm running out of miracles 
Em     C         G 
    Oh my soul 
G 
And the streets are lined with one-man shows 
Em      C         G 
    Oh my soul 
G 
Corner boys were moved along 
Em      C         G 
    Oh my soul 
G 
We're plummeting like crippled crows 
Em      C         G 
    Oh my soul 

G            Em 
  Oh, long before 
C              G 
You and I were born 
G                                    Em 
Others beat these benches with their empty cups 
        C 
To the night and its stars 
        G 
To be here, and now, and who we are 

C                        G 
Another sunrise with my sad captains 
C                            G 
With who I choose to lose my mind 
C                                 G 
And if it's so we only pass this way but once 
         C                G 
What a perfect waste of time 

G 
The BMX apothecary 
Em     C         G 
    Oh my soul 
G 
The architect of infamy 
Em    C            G 
  Oh my soul 
G 
For each and every train we missed 
Em      C             G 
   Oh my soul 
G 
A bitter little Eucharist 
Em      C             G 
    oh my soul 

G            Em 
  Oh, long before 
C              G 
You and I were born 
G                                    Em 
Others beat these benches with their empty cups 
        C 
To the night and its stars 
        G 
To be here, and now, and who we are 

C                        G 
Another sunrise with my sad captains 
C                            G 
With who I choose to lose my mind 
C                                 G 
And if it's so we only pass this way but once 
         C                G 
What a perfect waste of time 

C                        G 
Another sunrise with my sad captains 
C                            G 
With who I choose to lose my mind 
C                                 G 
And if it's so we only pass this way but once 
         C                G 
What a perfect waste of time
