I am from Salinas where the women go forever
And they never ever to stop to ask why
My mother was a saviour of six foot of bad behaviour
Long blond curly hair down to her thigh

Will I ever see heaven again?
--0-------0------0---|

--0-------0------0---|

Late into the evening, they would take each other screaming
Looking darkly to the back of her eye
The careless beast was bleating that the air behind was breathing
That they mustn't ever look up to the sky

Hmm put it down to me
I who speak awkwardly
Any word, if it is heard, is not intended to be
Not for him, not for her
Not for them, and not for me

--0------0------0------0|--0------0------0------0|
--0------0------0------0|--0------0------0------0|

Hmm when the clouds roll in, we start paying for our sins
With a gun in my hand and my son at my shoulder
Believe I will run before that boy gets older

Punish them all, for they speak too much
Hate the world for what it did to us

I'm quite sure this is about 100% correct ...but let me know if something's wrong!
I am so happy about this wonderful new album and I just couldn't wait for someone to 
tell me how to play this song, I tried!
Cheers,
Marlene

Hello Marlene!
Your tab is really good indeed! I was tabbing this song myself and when I finished it I found both our tabs quite similar, except for one point:

when Laura is playing the first "oh, my mother" line at the beginning of the song, I have the impression that she might have committed a mistake, which then she corrects by playing the following pattern (as I could figure it out) every other time those lines come up ("Oh my mother/ Oh my friends" and "There are no answers/ There are founds"):

--0------0------0------0------0------0---|
--0------8------8------0------8------8---|
--0------0------0------0------0------0---|
--0------7------9------0------7------9---|
--0------0------0------0------0------0---|
--0------0------0------0------0------0---|

please notice that she changes the finger on the 8th fret (5th string) from the index finger to the ring finger, or at least this is what it looks like to me when I watch the video carefully...

hope you understand what I mean and it sorta helps (:

Where it says "oh and that gun will turn", the first chord is 000320, which then goes onto the 000212 and 000000. I checked some videos, I think that's right - doing just the open as you have it doesn't quite capture it.
