"Welcome Home, Son"
Radical Face - Ghost (2007)
Tabbed by Dylan Williams

Every once in a while, I will discover that the tabs for a rather good or
popular song are so chaotic and muddled that they make the song far more
complicated than it actually is.

The chords themselves are fairly simple, the rhythm is probably what makes
this song so confusing, as it changes, like, four hundred times, making the
song seem practically through-composed. Listen to the song a few to times to
get all of the rhythm changes down.

If you want to play in the original key of F#, capo it at the sixth.

Chords used:
C ------ X32010
Em ----- 022000
F ------ X3321X
G ------ 320003
Am ----- X02210

You should know those, right?


C   Em   C   Em   C   Em

F   C   F   C   G

F   C   F   C   G   C

[The transition from F to C looks like this...]

e ------------|
B --1--1--1---|
G --2--0--0---|
D --3--3--2---|
A --3--3--3---|
E ------------|

[which sounds very nice, and is used throughout the song.]

C            Em           F       C
Sleep don't visit, so I choke on sun
         F         C    G
And the days blur into one
         F           C
And the backs of my eyes
          F           C     G
hum with things I've never done

Sheets are swaying from an old clothesline
Like a row of captured ghosts
over old dead grass
Was never much but we've made the most

[The two notes he plays on both syllables of "welcome" are F# and F (without
the capo), or the third fret, followed by the second, of the A string]

C   /B   Am  F  C      
Welcome hoooooome (you get the idea)
Am  F  C
Am  F  C
Am  F  C

Ships are launching from my chest
Some have names but most do not
If you find one, please
let me know what piece I've lost

Heal the scars from off my back
I don't need them anymore
You can throw them out
or keep them in your mason jars

[Same as the "welcome" above, but on "I've come".]

I've come hoooome

         Am           F       C
All my nightmares escaped my head
         Am                 F       C
Bar the door, please don't let them in
         Am        F        C
You were never supposed to leave
         Am             F       C
Now my head's splitting at the seams
    F        C      G
And I don't know if I can

Am   C   F   Em

Am   C   F   Em

F      C      G   F     C  G          F     C    G  Am C   G
Here, beneath my lungs, I feel your thumbs press in-to my skin again

F   Am   F   Am

F   Am

[Ends on an unresolved D#m (without capo), which is pretty ballsy]
