Tabbed by Chris Hannant for Brett Wyatt

Tuning: GCCGCC
No Capo

This obviously isn't tabbed out with the exact number of strums he plays
but if you just listen it's pretty apparent

Hey so this sounds really good and sounds right until you play it with the song. Its in the wrong key. You're starting on the E chord on the second fret and he starts with C. I know the tuning is right and most of it sounds right for the key its in but its 2 steps too low.

yeah, you're right but it's because he plays it a little differently in the recording. if you listen to any live versions on youtube i'm pretty sure it's as i have it above.

just had a play around and from seeing him live i reckon the tuning is GCEGCC, with the cords and fills:

intro/verse/outro:
C--0--0--0--(2-4-2-0)--(7-9-7-4--2-4-2-0)--5-4--0--0--0--0--0-------------
C--0--0--0--(2-4-2-0)--(7-9-7-4--2-4-2-0)--5-4--0--0--0--0--0-------------
G--2--5--0---0...-------0...---------------5-5--7--2--5--0--5-------------
E--0--0--0---0...-------0...--------------------7--0--0--0--5--(3p0------)
C--x--x--0---0...-------0...--------------------x--x--X--0--X--(---2p0---)
G--2--5--0---0...-------0...--------------------7--2--5--0--5--(------5/0)

chorus
C--0--0--0--
C--0--0--0--
G--9--4--2--
E--8--3--1--
C--0--x--0--
G--9--4--2--

give it a try, see what you think. to play along with the CD you'll have to down-tune about a quater tone.
