                             Godless Brother in Love - Iron and Wine
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Cody A. (MajestySnowbird)

Tuning: Standard

I was there the first time Sam played this song live, in the Open Air Theater at SDSU.
didn't sound too difficult, and I was lucky enough to get a fantastic recording of the
show.

UPDATE: Having watched some more recent videos of Sam playing this song (namely a
video from the 2009 Newport Folk Festival), I'm certain he adds a little flourish occasionally
playing the E by simply putting his pinky on the 2nd fret of the G string (022200) 
verses. Also, Sam has taken to playing this song capoed at the first fret. Also, some
the lyrics may have been changed.


The whole song is 3 chords: E, F#m, and Asus2. And take note of the slight variation in
last measure of the chorus.

Here are the lyrics in their entirety:

Godless brother in love
you might as well
lay down that rose
and fold the flag

She is money and tabs
that broken freedom in
See her big children burning rags
by the riverside

You can hear them on the hilltop laughing,
cursin' every bird in the air
tell of all the fun they're having
Driving eyes closed


Godless brother
as far as I can tell
and I won't compensate the blight

She looks lovely
as lightening all,
but what the hell

her big kids all run down the road
with no memories at all

And you can hear them on the hilltop laughing,
cursin' every bird in the air
tell of all the fun they're having
Driving eyes closed
