                     1904 - Tallest Man on Earth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Macheeoo
E-mail: macheeoo@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard CAPO IV


If you want to hear a cover I did of my tab for some minor reference, you can

Some chords you should know relative to capo! (that I've named myself, sorry)
Also note that D and D7 can be interchanged at most points!

     G   C   C9  D   D7  Am7 Bm 
e|---3---0---3---2---2---3---2-----|
B|---0---1---0---3---1---1---3-----|
G|---0---0---0---2---2---0---4-----|
D|---0---2---2---0---0---2---4-----|
A|---2---3---3-----------0---2-----|
E|---3-----------------------------|


Intro: G  C9  Am7  D   x2


     G                           C9
Well some may say it's not even funny
               Am7              D
And there you stand not even trying
     G                          C9     
They say it is in line with the ages
            Am7               D
Sometimes noise is just your mind


         C        G           D
But the lesson is vague in the light now
         C            G            D
Shows a deer with her mind on the moor 
         G                             C9
And now something with the sun is just different
           Am7                D     G
Since they shook the earth in 1904


Repeat Intro


          G (picked)                  C9 (picked)
And as I lowered down I hear it's a message
         Am7 (slam! strum)               D
And it's 1902 just telling people to get out
        G                             C9
And if there was just a way I could tell them
          Am7               D
It's been long but you are right

        C          G           D
And the singing is slow and so quiet
         C              G             D
Like the sound when you sweep up the floor
          G                              C9
And now something with the dirt is just different
           Am7                D      G
Since they shook the earth in 1904


             Bm                     C  
And when the night is young but the bridge is up
          G                 C
Something passing by, I was sure
        Bm                C
And the only one you can tell it to 
              G                  D
Well it's the only one that ever knows


Repeat Intro

                G (picked)                     C9 (picked)
And since more robbers made to go through my window
           Am7 (slam! strum)                           D7
Here is something so strange and something louder than before
            G                          C9 
And you're living with no light or direction
           Am7                D
But damn precise and now you know

       C           G               D
When believing is hard but you go now
         C            G                D
And you feel what you drag across the floor
          G                                   C9    
Because something with these drills are just different
            Am7               D          G
Since they shook the earth in 1904



             Bm                     C  
And when the night is young but the bridge is up
          G                 C
Something passing by, I was sure
        Bm                C
And the only one you can tell it to 
              G                  D
Well it's the only one that ever knows



(all picked here on out)
     G                           C9
And some will say it's not even healthy
            Am7               D7
But body is young and mind is sure
       G                               C9
That something is alright with your thinking
           Am7                D      G
Since they shook the earth in 1904

I think this tab is just about perfect.. though i do think that the capo should be on the fifth fret, but really, great tab

Multimediaspeak, I'm pretty sure it is capo 4 but I did most of the tabbing based on live videos, in which he played it capo 4. I played it against the album version and it sounded right to me.

I appreciate the comment!

Perfect! Easy to add a few little bits like walk ups/downs to make it your own too
