Heres a very under-rated song off The Weakerthans Fallow album. Its a simple but 
song so I tabbed it out
for anyone who would care to play it.

This is how I play the song. I incorporated the guitar melodies into the picking style. 
may not be
exact as the album since I simplified chords to make it easy to play on one guitar. But 
the parts are
there and the differences are pretty much un-noticible.

I tabbed out the intro, main melody/picking, the pre instrumental, and instrumental at 
end. Otherwise I
just wrote the chords so you can sing along easier.

On the album:

The verses are played like the melody part

The  ( Am  -  G   -   F  - etc. ) progressions are played like the pre-instrumental part 
tabbed (same fingerings).

Otherwise its pretty simple to figure out.

I hope someone finds this tab useful. Please comment/rate. Let me know what you think!

C                        C/E              F
Wait until the day says it's closing
G             F       C       G
and public is put away.
C                        C/E              F
Write by the light of a pay phone
G             F       C       G
your list of I meant to say

Am          G         F
Like winter comes too soon
    Am  G      F          G      G
or "Radiators hum out of tune

    F            C
Out under the Disraeli
     G                 F
with rusty train track ties
      F                     C
we'll carve new streets and sidewalks
  G              F
a city for small lives
    F              G                 C
and say that we'll stay for one more year


C                     C/E        F
Wait near the end of September
G             F             C     G
Wait for some stars to show
C                    C/E      F
Try so hard not to remember
G              F              C    G
what all empty playgrounds know

Am        G      F
that sympathy is cruel
Am        G          F        G      G
Reluctant jester or simpering fool

    F                C
But six feet off the highway
    G                    F
our bare legs stung with wheat
      F              C
we'll dig a hole and bury
    G                F
all we could not defeat
    F              G                 C
and say that we'll stay for one more year

 F               C
Bend to tie a shoelace
    G                  F
or bend against your fear
    F                G                C
and say that you'll stay for one more year
