Owls by Cocoon (Chords)

Owls by Cocoon (Chords)

By: jer989

Strum pattern is pretty easy to get from listening to the song – I believe that it’s 6 strums for all but the last of both the verse and chorus chords – the last chords get 7 strums.  Also, on the last strum of the Aadd9 chord [2102] during the verse, I think it sounds right to lift up your finger on the ‘A’ string to briefly make an A chord [2100] before changing to the final B chord.

Have fun with it! – and please comment if you think it can be improved.

Gbm A Aadd9 B
One two three four

Gbm                A
I’m her favorite game
Aadd9                     B
But I don’t know the rules
Gbm               A
I’m a piece on chess
Aadd9          B
And I always lose

Gbm              E6
She’s a queen, she’s a queen
B                  B
And her anger grows
Gbm               E6
She’s a queen, she’s a queen
B                      B
And I’m breeding owls

[both verse and chorus chords are same throughout the rest of the song]

She lost a treasure there …treasure there
In the forest’s heart…forest’s heart
She lost a treasure there…treasure there
She can’t remember what

She’s a queen, she’s a queen
And her anger grows
She’s a queen, she’s a queen
And I’m breeding owls

I’ve been hunting bears…hunting bears
In the forest’s heart…In the forest’s heart
I found a long black hair…a long black hair
She just took it back !

She’s a queen, she’s a queen
And her anger grows
She’s a queen, she’s a queen
And I’m breeding owls

    Hi jer ! Good Tab!

    But I think the Gbm Chord at the beginning of the chorus is wrong, doesn’t sound good to me.

    What do you think?

    best regards,

    Hi, me again ;)

    after watching this live version of the song:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7dUwhkC2wI

    I think its a Dmaj7 (2224). Sounds good too me, although not perfect. I figured out also that there a some chords in between, but have a look for yourself!

    hope it makes sense!

    aadd9 and b don’t really match the song…or at least they don’t match the gbm and a. aadd9 and b sound too…off…any alternatives?

    Here’s the solution:

    Dma7(2224) E7(4445)
    She’s a queen, she’s a queen
    B(4322) B
    And her anger grows
    Dma7 E7
    She’s a queen, she’s a queen
    B B
    And I’m breeding owls
