Moss on a Rolling Stone by Noah Gundersen

awesome song, and i was bummed when i couldn't find a tab, so i had a stab at it. 
i'm fairly sure there's room for improvement, but this is the general layout i 
think. Let me know what you think.


CAPO 1


chords:

    C   F    Am   G      F(in chorus)
e|--0---0----0----3------1------------|
B|--1---1----1----3------1------------|
G|--0---2----2----0------2------------|
D|--2---3----2----0------3------------|
A|--3---3----0----2------3------------|
E|--3-------------3------1------------|


The Am at the end of each line of the verse is played like this :

      Am              (x2)
e|-----0--0--0--0--0-----------------------------|
B|-----1--1--1--1--1-----------------------------|
G|-----2--2--0--2--2-----------------------------|
D|-----2--2--2--0--2-----------------------------|
A|-----0--0--0--0--0-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

(Note: there's a lot of palm muting going on in this song, mainly when the C chord 
is played in the first 2 verses.
just have a listen to the song to get it, though it sounds fine without it).


Intro: 
     C *palm mute*    C  F (x5)  C *palm mute*    F  C *palm mute*   F  C 


 C
I believe nowhere is a better place to be
                                     Am
Than not knowing where you're going now
C
I said education is a better state of mind
                                      Am
But I'd trade all my books to find a home
 C
If I made bets on a better time
                                Am
I'd lose my money every single dime
 C
I believe moss on a rolling stone
                                              Am
Is better than the rust that's growing on my house

Am         G               F
'Cause it eats at you sometimes


Chorus:
   F           C
The more you struggle
           G
More you fight it
          Am                 F
More it clings to you at night
                C
The more you wonder
          G
More you dream
             Am                  F
The more you pray it starts to die
        C
And it does
G            Am                 F
 Though it kicks you in the side
       C      
Yes it does
G           Am                F   C   G 
 Though it takes a little time


 C  F (x5)  C *palm mute*    F  C *palm mute*   F  C

   C
I believe heaven is a pretty place to stay
                                   Am
But not knowing scares me half to death
   C
I believe God is a bigger man than me
                                      Am
But sometimes I think that I can fight him
   C
We kicked the devil on a friday night
                                           Am
Just about lost when he came in close and tight
    C
Took him with a punch to his gritty chin
                                        Am
Asked him to please not come back here again

Am       G               F
But he eats at me sometimes

Chorus:
F              C
The more you struggle
         G                Am                    F
More you fight it, More he clings to you at night
             C                G
The more you wonder, More you dream
             Am                   F 
The more you pray he starts to die
       C    G            Am                  F
And it does,  Though he kicks you in the side
       C    G           Am             F   C  G
Yes it does,  Though it takes a little time

  
  C  F (x5)

  C
I believe home is a place that I will get someday
                     Am
If someone just will hold me
  C
I believe hope is a thing that I will find some time
                      Am
If someone just will show me
 C
I believe love is given, going, gone
                             Am
Come back to kiss me on the forehead
 C
I believe moss on a rolling stone
                                             Am
Is better than the rust that's growing on my home

Am        G                F
'Cause it eats at me sometimes

Chorus:
F           C               G
The more I struggle, More I fight it
        Am                  F             C
More it clings to me at night, The more I wonder
        G                Am                   F
More I dream, The more I pray it starts to die
        C
And it does
G            Am                 F
 Though it kicks you in the side
        C
Yes it does
G           Am              F   C   G
 Though it takes a little time 

 
  C  F (x3)  

  end on C
