* Note: Play these notes soft and faster after sweeping down. 
        They are quiet and quick but are there, and I believe
	played by another guitar, but it sounds alright with
	them in.

Also - riffs will be referred to as "R". 

The song is fairly easy, it's two riffs the entire thing.

Intro

[Riff 1 + Riff 2] x 1

-------
Verse 1
-------

R1               R2
Silver scents of Saint Augustine.

R1
Fire in the ground,

R2
Between my better teeth.

R1                   R2
We're dancing on the poison in their graves.

R1
At the end of the night,

R2
We'd all seen better days. 

--------
Chorus 1
--------

R2
I know you tried,
I know you're cursed.

R1                   R2
I know your best was still your worst,
R2                                  R1
When hollywood was calling out your name.
R2           R1           R2
Saint Augustine.

-------
Verse 2
-------

R1
If i stayed behind,
R2
Would you let your hair grow?
R1
I will forget,
R2
The favours that you owe.
R1                             R2
I'm dreaming of car wrecks and thunderstorms bright.
R1
Let's bury ourselves,
R2
and go haunt someone tonight.

--------
Chorus 2
--------

R2
I know you tried,
I know you're cursed.

R1                   R2
I know your best was still your worst,
R2                                  R1
When hollywood was calling out your name.
R2           R1
Saint Augustine.

I don't know why anyone voted this tab down. It's actually pretty good.

Sorry, this is not correct. It kinda has the basic outline, but most of it is wrong.
