American Flag Tabs

(Version #1)
Cat Power
There are only two chords in this song, and she is just arpeggiating them and playing open strings. The majority of the song is based on an open E chord, and she bends the G string, then plays open B and high E strings.

Tuning: EADGBE

Play them as arpeggios, and that's all there really is to it. Listen to the song for timing.


My friend, sits at the drum
His magic hand feels nothing but time
Nothing but time

My only friend sits at the drum
His magic mind doesn't feel anything
American flag is behind
If I could stand to be less difficult

My new friend, plays drums all the time
Her magic heart feels everything
She plays the difficult parts and I play difficult

She goes,
Shoo ba-doo
Shoo ba-doo
Shoo ba-doo-ba-doo

We go,
Shoo ba-doo
Shoo ba-doo
Shoo ba-doo-ba-doo
