Okay, I have searched high and low on the internet for accurate tabs to this
song, and i have to say, i am not very pleased with the tabs people have
posted. I do NOT use a capo to play this song, and neither does band of
horses from what i can hear. all they do is drop down a half step, which
sounds MUCH better than with the use of a capo. Here is my tab of the song
learned completely by ear. If you want to learn this song the CORRECT way,
than this tab is for you. Enjoy!


NO CAPO USED
Tuning: Half a step down.

The base-chords used are C Am F and G.



    C                 Am
e|--------------0---3-------------0---3---------|
B|-----1---3---1---------1---3---1--------------|
G|----0-------0---------2-------2---------------|
D|---2-------2----2----2-------2----2-----------|
A|--3----0------------0----0--------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

    F                 G
e|----------------------------------------------|
B|-----1---0--------0----1---0--------0---------|
G|----2---------2-------0---------2-------------|
D|---3---------3-------0---------0--------------|
A|--3----3----3-------2----2----2---------------|
E|-----------1----1------------3----3-----------|


These are the 4 Chords and strumming patterns done throughout the whole song. Here 
are how they are used during the song:

VERSE:
C       Am        F          G
silver scents of Saint Augustine
C            Am       F                G
fire in the ground between my better teeth
      C       Am      F                G
we're dancing on the poison in their graves
       C           Am         F               G
at the end of the night we'd all seen better days

CHORUS:
  F                G
i know you tried i know you're cursed
  C                  Am
i know your best was still your worst
     F             G               C        Am  
when Hollywood was calling out your name
F   G              C         Am         F        G
Saint Augustine

VERSE:
if i stayed behind would you let your hair grow?
i will forget the favors that you owe
I'm dreaming of car wrecks and thunderstorms bright
let's bury ourselves and go haunt someone tonight

CHORUS:
i know you tried i know you're cursed
i know your best was still your worst
when Hollywood was calling out your name
Saint Augustine
Saint Augustine
Saint Augustine
Saint Augustine

(end last chord with C)


There you have it! The only accurate St. Augustine tab on the internet. I love 
this song, and it really bugged me that there was no dead-on tabs out there for 
it, so i decided i would share this with everyone. Hope you enjoyed it.

I don't know about you, but for me the C sounds more like this:

e|--------------0---3|
B|-----1---3---1-----|
G|----0-------0------|
D|---2-------2----2--|
A|--3----3-----------|
E|-------------------|

But this tab is much better than the others i've seen, so 5 stars

Hi, I love this song, and I can follow the tab and I can see that if I could play it correctly it would sound 100% correct.
But I'm unsure on the actual strumming/finger picking pattern?
I was wondering on any advice such as which fingers for which strings, if any chord shapes will increase speed and and information on the timing?

Thank you.
