>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


The following pattern is played twice for the intro and also forms the 
main theme of the song;

the bass notes being plucked with the thumb and the highest four strings
are strummed;


.....C..........Csus2/B....Am..........................
e|-------0-0-0------0-0-0------0-0-0------------------|
B|-------1-1-1------1-1-1------1-1-1------------------|
G|-------0-0-0------0-0-0------2-2-2------------------|
D|-------2-2-2------0-0-0------2-2-2--3p2h3p2h3p2-----|
A|---3----------2----------0--------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|


This main theme is the repeated through the verse....


                            
The air was all dust, a night so untamed

The ground opened up and swallowed all of the rain

and it swallowed you too- into distance unknown

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

>>Then....

 (Continue repeating main theme until)................ F
As they sat down for dinner they waited for you to get home

...............G..............
yeah, they set a place for you.


...C.....Csus2/B.....Am.....................F................G..............
So don't be..........lieve everything that you read, in that diary of yours.

>>>


>>Repeat main theme twice and then continue repeating it throughout next verse


And this nervousness, it isn't all your fault

it's just these shaking hands won't do what I want them to.

And I've tried to guess what it is you thought about

>>>

>>Then....

  (Continue repeating main theme until).................. F
that act of contrition that rolled off our tongues as you wept,

............G...........
what are you crying for?


.....C.....Csus2/B...Am.................F...
Just dust..my........heart and you will find

...................G..............
there are no fingers printed there

.........C....Csus2/B...Am..............F..... 
just the un...touched...place that lies inside

..........G.................
of every lonely boy tonight.

>>>

>>Then.... repeat main theme x3

>>Then 4th time round play this...

.....C..........Csus2/B....Am..........................
e|-------0-0-0------0-0-0------0-0-0------------------|
B|-------1-1-1------1-1-1------1-1-1------------------|
G|-------0-0-0------0-0-0------2-2-2------------------|
D|-------2-2-2------0-0-0------2-2-2--3--2--0---------|
A|---3----------2----------0--------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

>>Then...

 (Strum) F.......G....

>>Then.... 

............(Play main theme)...........F...
And all this open air has caused me to choke

.......G.....................
on your new-found hope for me.

>>Then

Repeat main theme about six times, and if you have one, randomly tap a type-writer until end.
