Amanda Palmer - Blake says

This song is in standard tuning with a capo on the second fret.
all of the cords shown are relevent to the second fret,
(so the actual chords are E, C#m and A)

The main riff is based around a D chord with the bass note changing every time. their 
two parts to the main riff which are very similar and it sounds ok if you only play the 
part over twice since its easier to do with a pick.
the whole song is picked and only parts of chords are strummed at any time.

the last two verses end on a G chord, not the G-Riff, other than that they're all the same.

    Bm             Bm2          (G-Riff)
His heart is in Alaska all the time


Blake stays underwater for the most part
He collects loose change for All Tomorrow's Parties
And when Blake dates girls with tattoos of the pyramids
He breaks their hearts By saying it's not permanent
But in his velvet mind
He believes with all his might
We'll all go to Alaska when we die

Blake makes friends but only for a minute
He prefers the things he orders from the internet
And Blake's been having trouble with his head again
He takes his pills
But never takes his medicine
He tells me that he's fine
The sad thing is he's right
And when it's two o'clock it feels like nine

Bridge;

Bm,G,Bm,G2,G X2
Bm2,G X3
Bm,.....
Bm,G,Bm,G2,G,
Bm,G2,G,Bm

Blake says he is sorry he got through to me
If it's ok he'll call right back and talk to the machine
Blake says it looks like acid rain today
He takes the fish inside
He's very kind that way
But just like Caroline
He doesn't seem to mind
The globe is getting warmer all the time

Bm              G
It's still cold in Alaska
Bm              G
It's still cold in Alaska
