I have been looking for chords/tabs or sheet music (or even a lead to a backing/karaoke track) for The Vampire by Buffy Sainte-Marie and have had no luck. Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hey, I don't have a tab written out for this, but if just the chords will help you, here is what I've figured it out to be:
basically the song has two phrase patterns that are repeated AABAABAAB.

Phrase A:
C#sus2/G G#
shall I tell you of the night
F#m B A G#
It was long a_go (x2, same for "late november...")

Phrase B:
A B E
and the moon was big and bright
F#M B A G#
cold and sharp and clear
C#sus2/G# G# C#sus2/G#
and the air was bi___ting
(then repeated later for "I am farther from you now..." etc etc)

The C#sus2/G# isn't as crazy as it sounds. Just play a normal C#minor chord with your finger fretting the entire fourth fret to get the G# on the E low string, but then lift your middle finger off the B string so the E is actually a D#.
Like this:
4
4
6
6
4
4

During "softly, swiftly..." it's the same but on the C#sus2/G she lifts and then hammers her ring and pinky fingers onto the D and G string like this:
44 44
44 44
44h66
44h66
44 44
44 44

Hope this helps!
