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

Thank you! There probably is, I play it spot on, but I find it difficult for some reason to write down what i play properly the way I play it. Thank you for the correction :)
