Tab all done by ear. Video used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HB10rYdAN0
So lets do this. Standard tuning. Cap 3rd fret.

Intro: G C G C G C G

   Em        G          C
I opened my eyes as sunlight broke over the marsh.
   Em        G              C
My lungs were filled with sulphur, I was all washed up.
   G                 D                C
Caught in a storm drain and into a gutter.
   G          D         C
I had no memory of who I was.

Chorus:
 G                 C
500 years I was a ghost for you.
 G                 C
500 years I was lost for you.
  Em       D           C
There's nothing left of me,
 C                    G C      G C
I can't move on for 500 years. 500 years.

G C G C G C

    Em              G                   C
I followed coquina sidewalks down into the city,
    Em              G                          C
The palm rats danced on the telephone wires hanging up above me.
    G              D                C
I knew that his black eyes were watching on me.
    G              D                C
I could feel the heat of the flames reaching out for me.
                                                                                         
  Chorus:                
  G                 C
500 years I was a ghost for you.
 G                 C
500 years I was lost for you.
  Em       D           C
There's nothing left of me,
 C                    G C       G C
I can't move on for 500 years. 500 years.


    Em               G
Somewhere in the cemetery,
    C
I know my corpse is rotting.
          Em                G                C
With a cold heart in my chest and not a draw left in my breath
     G              D                   C
Sometimes it feels like I have always been here,
     G              D                    C
Sometimes it feels like I will never leave
 
Chorus:                                                                                 

 G                 C
500 years I was a ghost for you.
 G                 C
500 years I was lost for you.
  Em       D           C
There's nothing left of me,
 C                    G C      G C
I can't move on for 500 years. 500 years.

I LOVE this band. Good tab--quick addition, at the end of the Chorus when Laura sings, "500 years" there should be a D between the G and C.

I also think the lyrics in the bridge should read "...dead heart in my chest..." rather than the "...cold heart in my chest..."

Thanks for tabbing it and great job Scooty
