Update 2017-09-03. Laura Perrudin performs a haunting rendition with voice, harp, and multitrack:
The first things i learned to play on guitar were the simple, wonderfully strange songs of Neutral Milk Hotel. Below are lyrics and chords for the albums On Avery Island and In the Aeroplane over the Sea which i compiled from the official Neutral Milk Hotel website and transcribed from close listening. Feel free to email me with any comments or corrections.

Update 2015-02-22: I found a more comprehensive list of NMH lyrics and chords at neutralmilkhotel.wikia.com.
Mathematics, the science of patterns, is a beautiful and fascinating subject, but it ain't easy.
- The field is vast and the chains of dependency long
- Everything has to be so "correct"
- Accompanying fame, fortune, and fast cars distracting
- Objects of study exist in mysterious, separate universe inaccessible by physical means
- Hole in left parietal lobe (power drill)
- Can't count
Why no comments? I used to do public comments but found that moderating and maintaining them took too much time in front of the computer, time better spent playing outdoors. So these days I only do private comments, that is, you can email me comments regarding a post by clicking the 'Comment' link at the bottom of the post.
