-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song: Fragile Bird
Artist: City and Colour
Album: Little Hell

Tabbed by: Nathan Chancellor
Email:     natechancellor@gmail.com

Tuning: EADGBE - Capo 3 or 5

Notes:
1. On the capo situation, Dallas has played both. It really depends on your range. The 
studio version has a capo on 5 and he started playing it live that
way; however in the recent months, he has played it with a capo on 3 to save his voice. 
Your choice.

2. When playing the Em chord in the chorus, strum the open strings and hammer on the two 
fingers shortly after. He tends to do this in a few songs, Comin'
Home and Northern Wind come to mind.

3. He does a minor pull off hammer on type thing in the chorus (he strums slightly 
rapidly while moving his finger) that I will tab in the chords. Watch the videos to get it. 
He also varies it between performances, I give what I think is the most general 
one that sounds best.

4. Put heavy palm muting during the verse, taking it off when you are repeating it for 
the time right before the chorus so the chords ring out

Verse:

E1              E2
When she sleeps

           E3            E4
There is a fever dream, yeah

            E1          E2
It brings a night terror

             E3         E4
To harm this fragile bird

    E1                E2
She speaks in tongues

               E3               E4
Her words they come undone, yeah

           E1          E2
And with a wayward mind

             E3                E4
she struggles through the night


Chorus:

D       Em     C/G
All that I can do

  D          Em       C/G
Is hope she makes it through

                 E1    E2
Through the night

            E3      E4
Through the night


Verse:

      E1              E2
These cold nightmares

             E3           E4
They make her worse for wear

   E1           E2
Lost in the dark

            E3         E4
She's got a heavy heart


    E1            E2
And when she wakes

         E3     E4
In her fragile state

           E1          E2
Well, she calls my name

              E3       E4
Hoping that I keep her safe



Chorus:

D       Em     C/G
All that I can do

  D          Em       C/G
Is hope she makes it through

D       Em     C/G
All that I can do

  D          Em       C/G
Is hope she makes it through

                 E1    E2
Through the night

            E3      E4
Through the night


Bridge:

            E1    E2
Through the night

            E3   E4
Through the night

            E1   E2
Through the night

            E3   E4
Through the night


Chorus:

D       Em     C/G
All that I can do

  D          Em       C/G
Is hope she makes it through

D       Em     C/G
All that I can do

  D          Em       C/G
Is hope she makes it through

            E1
Through the night
