Tabbed by: Steven Long

This is my first tab, but I'm pretty sure it's about 95% accurate. I'm basing it 
off of the video of Bon Iver's live performance on the Jimmy Fallon show and 
seeing him perform it live.

It's in standard tuning with the capo on the first fret.

"But I could see for miles, miles, miles..."





REPEAT ALL THIS THROUGHOUT SUBSEQUENT VERSES AND CHORUSES

Lyrics:

Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me
You're laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it friend, it's on its head, it struck the street
You're in Milwaukee, off your feet

And at once I knew, I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake, it burnt away the hallway
Was where we learned to celebrate
Automatic bought the years you'd talk for me
That night you played me 'Lip Parade'
Not the needle nor the thread, the lost decree
Saying nothing, that's enough for me

And at once I knew, I was not magnificent
Hulled far from the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
Above my brother, I and tangled spines
We smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
Now to know it in my memory

And at once, I knew I was not magnificent
High above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

I think the pattern and chords are pretty close. But I'm not sure about the progression at some points. Maybe it's just me reading the tab incorrectly.

Anyway, 5 stars for this pretty hard song to figure out!

Not sure how well this fits in with the song, but for the "And at once I knew, I was not magnificent..." part, instead of strumming an F chord I like to play it like this:


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