Oviedo - Blind Pilot

I kind of amalgamated this version by looking at a few other tabs
and figuring some stuff out on my own. I think it's pretty good. 
~ Damsk1849

Capo 5 - Chords relative to capo

A* x03130  (I don't know the actual name of the chord)
I like to play the F's as Fmaj7 (x33210) but F sounds good too

There's a melody that can be added on top of the intro chords, but it's 
quite simple and you're all intelligent people, so I'm sure you'll figure it


C  E  F(maj7)  G  C

[Verse 1]

C                                     E
The thrill here is quicker than you'd think
The way some jet-lagged bar kept pouring the wine
                           C                    G
From over their heads then sit back down again
C                               E
Four times is once too much for luck
And that's how many times the clock struck
C                            G
I wandered home, saying your name

A*  C   A*

[Verse 2]

C                                            E
The arches here were built 'cause they don't fall
The cathedrals to make you feel small
          C               G
You might find your small soul
C                               E
Leave the preaching to the president

The crowd cheers, his eyes get wet
I'm full as it is, I'm full as it is
C                G
So don't feed me more

[Chorus 1]

E                   F                   C
You'll be having my head, big as a birthday
       E             F                C      G
'Cause I left all my doubts on the airplane
A*                               C         G
I didn't know, I didn't know I'm not in control
A*                            C
I didn't know, I'm not invincible


C  E  F(maj7)  G  C

[Verse 3]

C                                       E
And maybe some things are better left unsaid
                                F                        C        G
But if you wanted to test that, I will, yeah, I guess, I could've said
C                                      E 
But there were nights in bars that I recall
Your breath was courage laced with alcohol
           C       G
You leaned in, you said, 

[Chorus 2]

E                    F            C
"Make music with the chatter in here,
E                   F             C   G
And whisper all the notes in my ears."
A*                               C         G
I didn't know, I didn't know the way of my tongue
I didn't know, I didn't know what I'd done


(The structure sounds a bit odd on its own, but I'm pretty sure it's right)
C (2bars) A*(2bars)       F(2bars)  C(2bars)
A*(2bars) C(1bar) F(1bar) A*(2bars) C(2bars)

[Verse 4]

(C)                                   E
The lights here are softer than you'd think
The dim lit peacocks in the trees,
                                    C            G
They're hiding their eyes and their beauty, like me
C                         E 
But if my eyes were on my back
I know what I'd be looking at
                       C         G
Through every shade of brown and green


A*                              C           G
I didn't know, I didn't know it was nothing new
A*                                  C
I didn't know, I didn't know it was you

Adding the word "and" right before he sings "That's how many times the clock struck" would make it much easier if you are following the tab to play and sing it. Other than that, fantastic tab :)

Great job! The app Fretter calls x03130 a "E7b9/A" ... how on Earth did you figure out that that's the right fingering?
