                Rococo Zephyr by Bill Callahan (solo)

Open D tuning (DADF#AD), capo 1  (chords and riffs tabbed below)
-based on video from in-store performance at Schoolkids' Records
-this tab isn't note for note, but it's close - mess around and you will get it all.


Riff 1
She lay beside me like a branch from a tender willow tree
I was as still, as still as a river could be

Riff 2
When a rococo zephyr swept

Riff 3
over her and me

Riff 4
She watched the water ripple ripple ripple ripple light
Light watched the water ripple ripple ripple ripple she

E*
I did some kind of dance
G*		       D
jaunty as a bee
E*
I tried to look my best
G*		                    D
a finch in wild mint vest
E*
A fiercer force had wrenched her
G*			                 D
E*
I caught and caressed the length of her
G*				                               D
a tender willow branch floating on me

Riff 5

Riff 1
Well maybe this was all, was all meant to be
Maybe this is all, is all that meant to be

Riff 2
A rococo zephyr

Riff 3
crept up and stepped over

Riff 1
her and me

Riff 2
Well I used to be

Riff 3
sort of blind

Riff 2
Now I can

Riff 3
sort of see

Riff 1
