A   Dsus3(000230) A Dsus3

   A                 Dsus3
poison oak some boyhood bravery
                A                   Dsus3 
when a telephone was a tin can on a string
     F#                                   E
and i fell asleep with you still talking to me
     A                    Dsus3          A Dsus3
you said you weren't afraid to die
               A                           Dsus3
in polaroids you were dressed in womans clothes
          A                     
were you made ashamed?
                           Dsus3
why'd you lock them in the drawer?
          F#                                   E
well i don't think that i ever loved you than when 
A                 
you turned away
        Dsus3
when you slammed the door
                  Fm7(200230)
when you stole the car
       Em7(020230)     
drove towards mexico
              A
and you wrote bad checks
               Dsus3
just to fill your arm
                 Fm7
i was young enough 
                Em7                      
i still believed in war

A  Dsus3   A  Dsus3

       E                              F#
but let the poets cry themselves to sleep
    E                                           F#
an all there tearful words will turn back into steam
               A                                  Dsus3
me i'm a single cell on the serpents tongue
            Fm7                         Em7
theres a muddy field where the garden was
             A   
well im glad you got away
                Dsus3
but i'm still stuck out here
               Fm7
my clothes are soaking wet 
           Em7   
from your brothers tears

A  Dsus3  A  Dsus3

          E                            F#
and i never thought this life was possible
                E
your the yellow bird
                       F#
that i've been waiting for
                  A
the end of paralysis
                  D
i was a statuette
                  Fm7
now i'm drunk as hell
               Em7
on a piano bench
          A
and when i press the keys
                  D
its all gets reversed
             Fm7
the sound of loneliness
             Em7
makes me happier

Hey, not bad at all. Just a few little things. First of all, there's no such thing as a Dsus3 chord, what you want is a Dsus2 chord which is played the way you have it written on the tab (x00230 sounds best if you leave out the low E string) Next, i'm almost certain that all the F#'s in the song should be F#m's. Also, in my opinion, it sounds better to play F#m's instead of the F#m7's as well, but i'm not sure which is 100% correct in that case. One last thing, for an Em7 chord you have it tabbed as (020230) which is actually an E7sus4 chords which sounds a little off. Go with (020000 or 022033) for an Em7, but i think a plain E sounds best (022100). Overall it's a great tab, congrats.

agreed with above, definitely about using F#m instead of F#. but overall, fantastic work; i give it 5 stars.
