This is my first tab and an attempt to simplify the piano part of "Daniel Cowman" for
guitar.  Standard tuning.

[INTRO] Play the entire following (both rows) part three times, hitting the (3) in brackets
only on the second time through.  Vocals begin on third time through.

                                                   \
E-------------------------------------------------|
B-0------(3)--0-----------0-----------0-----------| |
G-2-----------2-----------1-----------1-----------|
D---3-2-0-2-----3-2-0-2-----3-2-0-2-----3-2-0-2---| |
A-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------2-|
E-------------------------------------------------| | 

                                                    |- 3x

E-------------------------------------------------| |
B-0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------|
G-0-----------0-----------------------------------| |
D---3-2-0-2-----3-2-0-2---4-3-2-0-2---4-3-2-0-2---|
A-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------2-| |
E-------------------------------------------------|
                                                   /

"On the day that Daniel Cowman stopped existing
The world should have ended right then and there
At precisely four-fifteen when he stopped existing
The world should have ended; How could it go on?"

[REPETITION] On the repetition of "How could it go on?" just play the last 
pattern twice more like so:

E-------------------------|
B-0-----------0-----------|
G-------------------------|     1x
D-4-3-2-0-2---4-3-2-0-2---|
A-----------2-----------2-|
E-------------------------|

"How could it go on? How could it go on?"


[CHORUS 1] The next part is as follows.  Play it twice, on the second time not 
playing the (3) in brackets
at the end and leaving the previous note ring out for longer.

E--------------------------------------------------|
B-0-1-0-------0-1-0-------0-1-0-------0-1-0--------|
G-2-----2-0---2-----2-0---1-----2-0---1-----2-0----|     2x
D-----------3-----------3-----------3----------(3)-|
A--------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------|

"When and I don't exist
I don't exist (7x)"


[CHORUS 2] Then, into a simpler part, to be repeated twice.

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

"So now that we've got that straight
Doesn't mean that I can fly
Doesn't mean I that I can go do whatever I want.

Now that we've got that clear
And you know that I'm not here
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please."


Then, repeat [intro] twice more exactly as above but without playing the (3) in brackets.

[intro]        2x
[repetition]   2x

"The premature ejaculation of his death 
Sentence hit Daniel in the face like a big round spitball hwk-pfffff.
And everything got hazy in the courtroom and then he stood up 
And then he sat back down another two times in the row.

And everything got real slow like a gunshot in the movies
And he remembered heroin boy walking in through the door
Bouncing off the walls and the floor
Taking off his belt taking off his pants
Filling up the bathtub
Getting ready to go in for a swim."


For the "I don't exist" part, play [chorus 1] again, but since the lyrics repeat the line
twice more, you will have to play the last pattern twice more afterwards (as added here):

[chorus 1]      2x

            +

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

"Singing I don't exist
I don't exist (9x)"


The next part is the exact same as [chrous 2] before, repeated twice.

[chorus 2]       2x

"And now that we've got that straight,
Doesn't mean that I can fly
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I want.
Now that we've got that clear
And you know that I'm not here
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please."


[BRIDGE 1] Smooth, slow part like so, repeated three times with the (3) in brackets
played only at the end of the last time:

E-------------3-----------|
B-------0--3------3-------|
G----0--------------------|     3x
D-------------------------|
A-------------------------|
E-3------------------(3)--|

"And he start remembering and remembering and remembering 
And remembering..."


[RUBATO] This rubato piano part I really simplified for myself and I sort of just do my
own thing with it.  You could play around with something like this, repeated four times:

E---3-3-3---3-3-3----3-3-3-3-3---3---3-3-3--3-------|
B---0-0-0---0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0---0---0-0-0--0-------|
G---0-0-0---0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0---0---0-0-0--0-------|     4x
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E-3-------2--------0-----------2---3----------------|

"The heroin boy walked through the door,
And he was screaming
And everybody's like, 'why's you screaming as if it's the end of the world?'
And he was like, 'Well it is.'

And I was sitting in the corner with my pants down
And I was sure that someone next door was blowing up balloons
And they was red and orange.

And there was this one lady at the bar and she was tryin to buy gin
And there was this other lady at the bar and she was tryin to sell gin
It worked out good for the boths of 'em.

And heroin boy started taking off his belt,
Started taking off his pants,
Started taking off his shoes
Filling up the bathtub
Getting ready to go in for a swim"


[BRIDGE 2] This part I played around with and you might need to too.

E---7-----3-3-3-3-3-3--7----3-3-3-3-3-3--7----3-3-3-3-3-3----7-----3--2--0--2---|
B---7-----0-0-0-0-0-0--7----0-0-0-0-0-0--7----0-0-0-0-0-0----7--------------3---|
G---------0-0-0-0-0-0-------0-0-0-0-0-0-------0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------------|   1x
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------3-----------------3-----------------3-----------------------------------|

"I says, 'No-o.
You're goin to drown.'
He says 'No,
I can't drown.
Simply because...

Shhhhhhh."


[VERSE] A bit more complicated part, just play everything below once through.

E----2-2-2----2-2-2----2-2-2----0-0-0----0-0-0----0-0-0----0-0-0----2-2-2-|
B-0--4-4-4----4-4-4----4-4-4----2-2-2----2-2-2----2-2-2----2-2-2----4-4-4-|
G----------3--------2-----------------------------------------------------|     1x
D----------------------------------------------------------------1--------|
A----------------------------4--------4--------2--------1-----------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|



E----2-2-2----2-2-2----0-0-0---------------2-----2-----2-2-2-2----|
B----4-4-4----4-4-4----2-2-2---------------4-----4-----4-4-4-4----|
G-----------------------------------------------------------------|     1x
D---------------------------------------1-------------------------|
A-0-------------------------------------------1-----3-------------|
E----------4--------0--------3------------------------------------|

"A man destined to hang
Can never drown,
A man destined to hang
Can never drown,
A man destined to hang
Can never ever drown.

A man destined to drown
Can never burn,
A man destined to drown
Can never burn,
A man destined to drown
Can never ever burn.

A man destined to fry
Can never ever ever
A man destined to fry
Can never ever ever
A man destined to fry
Can never ever ever die...
In any other way

But frying,
Lucky that I'm dying
By hanging and not drowning."


At the end, just play [chorus 2] once without the final note:

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

"So now that we've got that straight
Can't I just be left alone?
I want to take a fuckin' bath."
