Fleet Foxes - He Doesn't Know Why 

Capo 1st fret.
 
F             G               F         G
Penniless and tired, let your hair grow long,
      Dm             Am             Em          F
I was looking at you there and your face looked wrong,
C           Dm     Em     F 
Memory is a fickle silent song
  G
I didn't understand

Interlude
C/F/G/F x2

F           G            F       G
Image and a light as the morning nears,
          Dm           Am           Em       F
you don't say a single word of your last two years
         C       Dm     Em          F 
Well you will be, you'll reach the frontier
   G
I didn't understand, oh

F                 G           F      G
See your wringing hands and a silver knife
       Dm              Am            Em      F
Twenty dollars in your hand that you hold so tight
        C        Dm      Em      F 
All the evidence of your vagrant life 
   G
My brother you were born

F                   G           F   G
And you will try to do what you did before
         Dm             Am          Em      F
Pull the wool over your eyes, for a week or more
         C      Dm       Em      F
Let your family take you back to your 
G
Original mind.

        C             C   
There's nothing I can do
        F             C
There's nothing I can do
        C             C
There's nothing I can say
        F             C              
There's nothing I can say
      C
I can say

My first tab. Enjoy.

Great tab. Here are the correct lyrics:
Penniless and tired, with your hair grown long
I was looking at you there and your face looked wrong
Memory is a fickle siren song
I didn't understand

In the gentle light as the morning nears
You don't say a single word of your last two years
Where you were or when you reached the frontier
I didn't understand, no

See your rugged hands and a silver knife
Twenty dollars in your hand makes you hold so tight
All the evidence of your vacant life
My brother you were born

And you will try to do what you did before
Pull the wool over your eyes
For a week or more
Let your family take you back to your original mind

There's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can say
I can say
